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.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark copper with a creamy near beige head. Aroma is sort of floral rum. Probably not a rum barrel, but it smells like it to me. Med body. Almost. The flavor is lightly spicy, definitely roasted malt, and something like a touch of wintergreen. And still, I think floral. Finishes not exactly dry, but not very sweet either. After a while I can get the oak. A fairly flavorful and somewhat astringent finish. I like it.

C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours red and transparent with a medium, off-white head. Nose is cherry, burnt toffee, oak, orange, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. Mouth feel is chewy with low carbonation. Taste is raspberry syrup and cherry which quickly bitters to grapefruit, burnt toast and cough drops. Finish is dry and bitter. The nose is much better than the taste. It’s all over rather quickly. Not really to my liking.

thb (805) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2012
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.

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.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Very sweet whisky aroma. Medium body, sweet caramel and again a neat but rather sweet whisky notes - but at least not butterscotch as the worst Innis&Gunns. 120412

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 12, 2012
Bottle at Papsø tasting. Dark orange with a small white head. Intense woody, smokey, tobacco-like aroma of aged malts. Flavor is spiky, overripe malt sweetness with oaky notes and a dry, bitter, lingering finish. Quite full bodied, oily texture. To relax.
