More fuggles flavour. This beer is fantastic. I’ve enjoyed just about everything I’ve had with the innis and gunn name and this is just about the best Docavey (95) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Creamy but just bubbly enough. Well balanced and hoppy. Caramel and vanilla from barrel aging. Head does not last long. A gift from my sister enjoyed on New Years Day. Wish I could buy this in Florida.

Hazy, dark red. Lots of maple and sweetness from the bourbon barrel. Not overpowering though. Not bad, but still don’t like BA beer that much. 072712 zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A red-brown beer with sweet red fruity, vanilla and oak flavours with sweet fruit and whisky on the finish.

Bottle at Alex.
Clear orange coloured with a small white head.
Sweet and fruity aroma of caramel, dried fruits with notes of oak and alcohol.
Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel and dried fruits with notes of rubber and licorice.
Sweet finish. Davros (3282) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2012
Pours coppery brown with a large, creamy head.
Nose shows toffee, caramel, butterscotch, oak and vanilla. Very sweet-smelling.
Similarly sweet flavours, almost syrupy sweet. Butterscotch, golden syrup, brown sugar, oak and soft booze. Pretty cloying to be honest.
Could use a thicker body and more carbonation. Stoutgirl86 (6) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012 does not count
A trully delicious beer. Innis and Gunn really deliver on greating a deeper yet still balanced flavour which is even better then their original and winter seasonal ales. Possibly my imagination or high expectations, but my feeling is 2011s was a little richer then 2012. Feel free to comment if you have an opion on this. mkel07 (6385) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2012
330ml bottle. Starts off amber but turns to a murky brown colour with a thin wispy swirl of foam. Loads of spice and fruit in the aroma and the flavour with a big alcohol kick to finish things off.
