3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful mandarin, garnet, and copper hues – deep and timeless – melt together in seamless harmony. The head is a tight white blanket which fades into an orderly collar. Swirls average while the colors seem to glow from within my beer glass.
Toffee, caramel, and maple. Candied apples. Plump juicy raisins amidst moist raisin bread topped with a sweet cinnamon and brown sugar glaze. Orange oils and oak. Figs. Caramelized sugars and oaken delights abound.
Creamy mouthfeel and medium-bodied weight. Caramel, nutella, and maple in the beginning with fudge lingering in the breath. Candied apples and brown sugar with spice and oak in the back. Fig and raisin bread chewiness in the middle. Could be too sweet and chewy and sticky but never is and I keep coming back for more. Fudge, caramel, maple, toffee, brown sugar, raisins, and figs melt and meld into a beautiful tapestry that is Innis & Gunn Original’s heart and soul. Mild dry finish of red apple peel and oak with tendrils of leather and cigar leaf.
Wonderful. World class and classy. I can see why the workers refused to dump such a delicious brew and drank it for themselves. Thankfully now more than just the workers can drink of this wonderful nectar – you and I can too. Seek out the Original and all Innis & Gunn beers. You will enjoy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lively, clear dark golden beer with a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with an edge of something I recognise but can’t place. Flavour is light, crisp and sweet and the same something I couldn’t pick out in the flavour is there too. Something from the way it’s matured in the barrels, perhaps? I’m not in love with it but it’s nice enough.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very weak aroma. Not much to mention. Not an special looking beer one poured. Palate is clean with a slight oily feel. More much carbonation. Very sweet. Every flavor more is sweet which combined together is just too much.
