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. bierkoning (13451) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle. Canada Day 2011. Dark amber color. Malt, toffee and a hint of vanilla in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with hints of oak, toffee, raisin. Slightly alcoholic, sticky mouthfeel. Hint of butter in the aftertaste. j12601 (12974) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle at a tasting at Andy’s. Pours a clear brown amber with a small white head. Lots of little dirty flocculated yeast in there. Sweet and malty with a bit of wood and a caramel. Medium bodied, sweet and bordering on cloying. Long sweetness and a bit of wood again. Decent, but nothing amazing.

Bottle, bought @ Bierzerg.deSammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2011
Pours deep coppery amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has dry oak, caramel, sugar, vanilla, some floral notes. Medium to low carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, fat caramel, light oak, some mild dryness, sugary. Kinda dry oaky finish. Fine, light warming finish.
2011 vintage, kept a half year old. Way too smooth. Easy drinking but very uninteresting. Rum and slightly hazy coloured body, a little creamy lace. jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
2011-10-23. Crisp dark amber orange body with a small beige head that fades. 3+ Flavour is fairly sweet malty profile, light bitterness and hops, creamy sort of vanilla like character that I assume is from the oak. The wood is muted otherwise and not overpowering like some of their other offerings. Hints of citrus in the finish, maybe? 6+ Light alcohol notes in the aroma, mild oak and vanilla, caramel. Decent but not entirely to my tastes. Bottle from LCBO

Bottle. Not sure if this beer will remain a separate listing or get lumpectomy in with the other Canadian Cask entries. Anyway, true to form it remains my favourite from I& G. If anything, this vintage offers even better balance with the oak elements. Creamy buttery toffee malts, burnt sugars, very subtle hop presence. Still my favourite offering from these guys.

(bottle, 33cl) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Cara-malty and slightly oaky aroma with notes of biscuits, vanilla and a subtle citrus-fruity touch. Sweet flavour, almost full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Biscuity malty taste with notes of caramel, vanilla and fruity notes; sweet malty and slightly oaky finish with a present alcoholic bite. 07.VII.11
