Every ingredient we have used to brew this beer has been selected for its intensity of flavour. Amber and Cara malt have been added to give a rich, almost chewy, malt backbone and body and we have used a classic blend of aroma hops, Fuggles, Goldings and Styrian Goldings to add their signature vibrant characters.

Tasted next to the original and rum cask last night. This easily has the most hop influence and last amount of barrel influence of the three beers. In fact, I’m not sure if this was barrel aged like the other two. Mellow spice and molasses flavor. Decent winter beer that’s still tasting alright here at the end of summer.

sulawang (1049) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2013
pours a med-dark copper brown with a smallish head, micro CO2, some active streams, sticky lacing. Sweet caramel malts and a hint of brandy on the nose. Attack: Yeasty carbonation, partially watery Mid-palate: 4/10-sweetness, malts, light aniseedy caramel Finish: cuts off-dry, mild whisky notes, light bitter-light malted cleanish finish. Overall pretty underwhelming. Not bold or flavourful enough for my tastes.

BillWyce (1009) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2012
From notes: Poured clear red-amber with a thick, creamy bone-colored head. Aroma was of sweet orange mixed with wood notes. Medium-bodied, with a long, but mild finish. Flavor of wood mixed with vanilla, with a bright orange note in the finish.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - FEB 7, 2012
330ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear medium ruby with a one finger off-white head. Smells strongly of toffee, caramel, and banana. Also a slight rum smell along with some vanilla. Flavor of toffee, caramel, vanilla and banana. Really quite a bit going on here. When this beer was cold I definitely picked up a lot of banana and vanilla. As it warmed some more caramel and toffee started coming out. There is a slight bitterness towards the finish. Overall this is a decent beer but not my favorite from Innis and Gunn. I would have it again, though.

Bottle. Pours copper with a white head. Aroma of malt, vanilla and mild oak. Flavour starts with sweet malt, caramel and orange before a slight bitter finish. Light carbonation. Good.

Dark brown clear with mountainous bubbly head. Aromas: vanilla, oak. Butterscotch as per usual. Taste: sweet - a bit syrupy but the higher alcohol and dry oak cuts through it. Something about the carbonation is distracting.

This s a review of the winter 2012 Deep copper pour. Claims to be a porter brewed with molasses. If it was a porter it was light. Molasses is prevalent Slight yeast and roasted malts. Drinkable but just ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheDog (586) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle. Amber colour with thin beige head. Aroma and taste of malts, caramel, oak and whisky notes. Soft carbonation and sweet vanilla finish. No apple or soap mouthfeel in this bottle, like some of the tap ratings. I guess the bar needs to clean the tap lines. You cant taste its 7.4 %. Nice beer but other I&G´s being better.

darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
In bottle; nice golden copper color. Aroma somewhat sweet with a citrusy finish. Taste; strong orange peel at the start finishing with the oak. Kind of a medicinal taste. Nice body, but just an OK beer ... Innis and Gun has better beers to choose from

Very solid beer, slightly different from last year. There is a more pronounced oak character and the citrus has been dialed up as well
