Poured great, nice color, lacing and head. However don’t judge a book by it’s cover. After 2 sips of this monkey piss I poured the rest down the sink. Way to alcohol infused. This is only the second beer I could not finish. I would take a michelob ULTRA over this crap anyday!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. A clear, deep golden body with an off-white head. Aroma has vanilla and some butterscotch, but the level of butterscotch feels pretty OK in this one. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, wood, vanilla, hint of spices and not much bitterness. Medium body and decent aftertaste. Not bad, a bit too sweet, almost a bit dessert like and would probably work as an after meal drink.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Typically recognisable I&G beer. Vanilla not quite as prominent, masked by a fruity sweetness from the rum presumably. Not the best from this brewery but pleasant enough. Low carbonation and minimal head on this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l clear bottle wrapped in a paper box. Have to admit that it’s some time since I’ve had a Innis & Gunn beer now, but it looks like it should. Whisky colored and crystal clear in the glass with a small quickly islandy off-white top. I like the sweet caramelly nose with peppery and spicy tones. A little bit of butter and butterscotch also wrapped in between here. Surprisingly smooth in the mouth with a light oily almost creamy mouthfeel wrapped in a average small bubbly carbonation level. It has that well known sweetness that all their beer has, in addition to this a peppery spicy and woody flavor. I’m actually liking what I’m tasting. Not cloying at all and there is a well balanced little hint of alcohol all the way that makes it a bit more interesting. I’m no big rum drinker, but I think I’m tasting the rum as well and it has a vanilla theme all the way through. Not bad at all. 11.07.2013

Bottle. A copper colored beer, clear, with a dense light beige head. Vanilla,
wood and brown sugar in the aroma. Caramel, tending towards butterscotch, Bread and toffee, with a little sweetness. Full body and a nice carbonation. Caramel and bread in the end. Decent, but too boring. 131129

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Another Innis & gunn beer with standard oaky character. Decent amber, nice lasting head. Some spice in the taste. Like has been stated before, those extra notes seem like add-ins and not really coherent. Feel is medium, not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty beer. Plenty of spice and vanilla and hints albeit comes across as an additive rather than a fully integrated flavour. Still very pleasant drinking.
