3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 330ml in presentation box from Sainsburys, Banbury. Poured Tawny brown but hard to muster up a head. Innis & Gunn aged beers are difficult to rate for me as the titles on the boxes are so intriguing so that the final results are largely disappointing. This is perhaps a little fuller than most but the depth appears to be butterscotch, caramel notes. The beer is fairly sweet, I get some astringency, woodiness, but the discovery is never a eureka moment. Just slightly on the dull side.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Rating #7,100) Bottle… Clear, dark, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Rum and raw American white oak are the aromatic standouts. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Sweet and oaky. Maybe some rum; maybe not. Certainly lots of raw oak on the palate. Finishes sweet, thin and oaky. Sort of mundane, really. Very woody without any real malt or hop substance. Rubs me in all the wrong places. So far, I’m not at all impressed by this brewery.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear ruby-brown colour with a little and elusive beige foam; solid aroma of rum and dried raisins; sweet, a good malt body maintained by a solid carbonation; the finish is sweetish with more notes of rum and warming alcohol

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, copper colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Sweet cara-malty aroma with subtle exotic fruity (cocos, pine apples) notes and a touch of vanilla. Sweet flavour, full bodied with an almost flat carbonation, including a sticky mouthfeel. Caramel-malty, slightly syrupy taste with rum flavours and vanilla; sweet and slightly oily finish with non-disturbing alcoholic and cocos/vanilla flavours. I am not very excited. 19.VIII.10
