1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
While this smells quite nice (vanilla smokey) and has an interesting flavour(sweet vanilla, and fruity) to start with i found it really quite clawing by the end and struggled to finnish it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color is a beautiful honey-amber, promising a good ale experience. Aroma has strong fruity overtones. Flavor has a brandy-like bite, but is otherwise fairly typical of a good ale, with smoky/burnt undertones and just a hint of apple or pear. Smooth yet edgy, this is a beer made for sipping rather than guzzling.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. A crystal clear, golden brown beer. Thin beige head quikly reduced to a ring of foam. Prominent sweet whiskey aroma. Also hops, honey, sweetish fruits and toffee. Taste is sweet and malty with a wooden note. A decent hopbitterness makes up for the liqueur-ish mouthfeel. Good body. A bit on the sweet side for my tastebuds. Nevertheless, a nice one!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honey and oak aroma, very pleasant, honey-amber colour with a small head. Smooth on the tongue and has a subtle hint of hops and malt, I found the alcohol to be disguised well and it had a very soft finish, enjoyable and would buy again

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours tea-colored into a shaker. Bright white conglomerate head with excellent retention. Vanilla and whiskey aromas. Smooth with whiskey front to back. Different palate - somewhere between soft and crisp. Lasting oak, caramel, vanilla and hops finish. Slight alcohol burn.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled beer...Aroma was doninated by butter and vanilla with hints of raw wood. A bit of caramel malt and toffee presence was slightly detectible. Poured a clear dark honey color with a finely beaded white head which disapated rather quickly. Flavor was donianted by butter and vanilla with that raw wood character dominating the finish. Beerey elements were subtle. Finish was nicely balanced. Medium fully body with low to moderate carbonation. Overall a tasty, well balanced beer that was doninated by the oak barrels during aging. A bit weak on backbone flavor elements to withstand the degree of oaking employed in the processing of the beer.

Simply divine. No other beer even comes close to the flavour of Innis & Gunn. The flavour starts off bitter with a slight oakiness, which gives way to subtle caramel and vanilla after-notes. A MUST TRY Scotish beer.

Pours clear amber colour with a white medium-size thick head. Mouthfeel is light, quite dry, but still round. Aroma has some toffee and vanilla, specially in the aftertaste. Has a bit of whisky aromas too.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz clear bottle, best by date 16 JUN 07. Clear amber with a thin white head. Nose is initially a bit skunky, but gives way to a caramel and lightly woody scent, light vanilla notes. Flavors of toffee and vanilla, very light earthy hop notes. Dry, somewhat alcohol tinged finish. OK beer.

Bottle. Brandy-orange in color. Nice bottle and packaging. Hints of whiskey, wood, sweet. Similar in taste - awkward - feels like I’m drinking a watered down Jameson straight up (and soon to get ill). Very interesting and a sure favorite for those who like drinking beer that tastes like Jim Beam.
