[330ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Darkish amber pour, decent white head. Sweet, vanilla nose. Sweet, fragrant flavour. A touch caramelly, but that extreme sweetness overpowers everything else. Are we giving the Canadians the gift of tooth decay for their celebrations?  GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle from the LCBO. Ruby-copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of vanilla toffee, bourbon, toasted oak with a hint of hops to take the edge off. Medium bodied, good mouthfeel. Flavour follows on the aroma pretty closely - initially seems like it might be too sweet, but after a few sips, it comes together nicely. Vanilla toffee is predominant, with an oaky backnote, a wisp of woodsmoke, and quick Fuggles hops in the finish. As with several other I&G beers, the beer itself could use a bit more heft, but in terms of flavour and character, it’s quite alright. Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2011
2011. Golden with a small white head. Aroma of grapefruit, with a bit of lemon peel, grain and grass. Sweet sugary malt flavour with a grapefruit note. Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2011
Hand bottle, thanks to Craig and Dan. Pours a copper colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of treacle, oak, vanilla and bourbon. Flavours of treacle and toffee with a sweet oaky finish. Alcohol is very present with mild carbonation and a long caramel and alcohol linger. TBone (17440) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2011

Deep amber color, small steady off-white head. Strong bourbon-vanilla aroma. Medium-bodied. Very sweet flavor. Toffee, vanilla, bourbon, low bitterness. Soft palate. Typical Innis&Gunn flavor - lots of bourbon here but base beer is too lame.
Bottle at cgarvieuk’s. Orange pour, gushing white head that fades. Toffee and vanilla nose. Toffee and vanilla palate. Toffee and vanilla finish. With weird off flavours of oak and chemical. Horrific. cgarvieuk (24230) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2011

Bottle. Dark amber, small to average and and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, wooden oak - vanilla, caramel and toffee, light fruitiness with dark fruits. Body is medium, malty and sweet flavor, caramel with some toffee, vanilla with some wooden notes, fruitiness with dark fruits. Finish is average, malty and sweetish with caramel - some toffee, lots of vanilla with some dark fruits and wooden notes, some fruitiness. Interesting brew, but too sweet and too much caramel for me.

Bottle at Per’s. Dark amber body, small white head. Cream and alcohol in the nose, slightly malty. Smooth creamy bourbon taste, light and sweet. Alcohol present. Buttery. Eh. Not too bad, but I don’t like this kind of beers. Maris (1499) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 25, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 25/9/2011 (shared with Butz). Pours a reddish amber with a fast disappearing head. Has a fruity, slightly port like aroma. In the mouth, it’s very sweet indeed - malty and fruity (particularly raisins and berries), with some oak. It almost has a touch of muscat about it. There’s just enough offsetting bitterness for it to work quite well. A nice and quite unusual dessert beer.
