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.

""""For 30 days this honey-hued beer sleeps in hand selected oak barrels, locked inside a bonded warehouse, gradually assimilating the subtle flavours that reside in the wood. Barrels are then emptied and maturation continues for a further 47 days in a marrying tun where these natural flavours infuse and fall into perfect balance. This 77-day process is unique and produces a delicious, refreshing beer: Aromas of vanilla and toffee, hints of citrus, with a malty, lightly oaked,palate. Deftly balanced and light in texture, soothing and warming in the finish."""

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much oak on the nose, a slight caramel note. Oak comes into its own in the taste dept. Lending vanilla and spice. Slight chewy toffee flavour. Pleasant.
