33cl bottle. Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has ginger nut biscuits and crystalized oranges and muscavado sugar. The taste has ginger, oranges, The palate is medium bodied, good texture and a reasonably clean finish which is persistent. Overall, this is their best effort so far. chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2011
330ml bottle. Generous white head. Good condition. Slight vanilla aroma. . A whiff of woodsmoke. Very sweet flavour. A bit toffeeish. Not really my thing. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Bottled. Golden colour, small off-white foamy head. Aroma is sweet wooden notes, mild rumlike notes as well as some slight fruityness. Flavour is sweet slightly smoked wooden notes with some rum and vanilla in it as well. Quite sweet finish. Actually very pleasant.

Bottle (330ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small diminishing off-white head. Aroma, which is sweet as usual with these guys, of vanilla, wood and biscuity malt. Sugary sweet flavour of vanilla, wood, biscuit and some light peat. Average bodied. One of their better beers but I still don’t like it. Hammy78 (974) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle purchased at the LCBO. Pours a very dark copper colour, with an off tan head which recedes to a thin layer/ ring. Some spotty lacing here and there. Aroma is sweet and woody (oak I’m assuming). Some maple syrup too maybe? Tastes sweet and of maple syrup, tart, bitter (but not very). Some vanilla creaminess on the back end.

Deep amber golden pour. The nose is fairly caramelly and toasty. Lots of soft vanilla and toffee over a light sweet brown sugar backbone. The beer isn’t terribly sweet, but it has a lot of malt components in it. A little bit of woody character in this one with a touch of peppery alcohol (had no idea it was 8.3 before I started drinking it). Very oaky with only a bit of biscuit malt backing it up - lots of bourbon character. It’s decent, but kind of a simple brew. northropfrye (3662) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2011 Bottle. I and G is known for the whiskey aged stuff, which I’m not a huge fan of. This is a great beer, though. Malty and delicious. Hermod (8113) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2011
33cl bottle labeled Canada Day 2011. 8.3%. Poured clear amber color with a thin head. Aroma is buttery, toffeeish, biscuity, with some woody notes when getting warmer. Flavor is biscuit, toffee and caramel with lots of vanilla towards finish. Hint of alcohol as well. Almost full bodied. Overall a very smooth beer, typical Innis & Gunn. Very tasty.
