More fuggles flavour. This beer is fantastic. Iíve enjoyed just about everything Iíve had with the innis and gunn name and this is just about the best andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a semi-clear clear light brown/deep copper with a thin creamy white ring around the glass, Googles and little to no legs. Aroma is brown sugar, vanilla, oak, toffee, and bourbon. Flavour is brown sugar, bourbon, toffee oak, vanilla, and mild alcohol. Very tasty and flavourful but a bit more of a desert beer.

Appearance: slight haze on amber with ruby accents. Medium beige top. 3+
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium bodied. Caramel with woody cam fire smoke , hint of candy sugars , pine wood , cask feel oh oak wood. Quiet drinkable German smoked brews with fruit ale feel treated on cask character. I like the thinking of brew master that formulated this ale . Bravo!
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 Iím assuming). Some maple syrup too maybe? Tastes sweet and of maple syrup, tart, bitter (but not very). Some vanilla creaminess on the back end.

330ml clear bottle, boxed. Clear golden/amber coloured brew with a big white head which fades to a long lasting ring. Very sparse lacing. Nose has some hops, sweet malt character, caramel and whisky notes. Flavour has big caramel start, mellow malt middle, finishes with vanilla, light booze/bourbon and woody notes. Hint of citrus hops in the finish and faint smokiness. Medium body, light carbonation, pretty smooth in the mouth. A pleasant surprise, a lot of these I&G beers are hit and miss. Would be happy to drink this one again. RD400F (226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2011 Beer into Chimay trappist glass...
Aroma: rubbing alcohol, oak, toffee, caramel, a little sour and kinda floral.
Appearance: Disappointing. Head which went poof in a second which was off-putting. Beer is a super clear burnt orange/amber/red.
Taste: Pretty fine, and that matters along with palate the most. Toffee is quite evident along with oak, booze and a slightly hoppy finish. Quite well balanced however.
Palate: Thin, co2 is not overbearing, nothing negative to note, but not outstanding. Itís very smooth.
Overall: Nice beer, I like it. I thought this was kinda bottom end, but no, itís actually pretty good! Compared to a can of Holsten Festbock pisswater, this is amazing. Recommended. zacgillbanks (5128) - 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.
