COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We are pleased to present this special Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer bottled to celebrate Canada Day 2012.
Alongside ale malt we added Aromatic Barley Malt with imparts the beer’s rich toffee colour and satisfying maltiness. We used Goldings hops from 3 farms in East Kent to impart a delicate balancing bitterness and a fruity twist. We then slowly oak matured the beer to unlock the delicious flavours of vanilla and toffee locked inside the oak grain, only bottling it when we deemed it to have matured to perfection.

Bouteille 330ml. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de caramel, moyen de vanille, léger de butterscotch, légèrement boisé (whisky) avec de faibles traces de toffee terreux, de fumée de cigarette et de fruits sûrs. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture aux notes liquoreuses. Léger goût boisé (fût de whisky), léger de vanille et aux faibles traces fruitées lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt moyennement sucrés et aux notes terreuses, moyen de caramel toffee sucré avec des petites notes de butterscotch puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes d’alcool boisé avec des traces de fumée de cigarette. Post-goût moyen-long et aux petites notes sèches, composé d’un léger goût d’alcool assez boisé avec des traces de fumée de cigarette.

Really enjoyed this. Pours a dark reddish brown. Creamy head. Smells a bit funky, also some scotch, wood and caramel. Smooth and creamy palate. Boozy, caramel, woody flavours. Yum.

bulldogops (2907) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
330mL Bottle from Liquor Depot. 7.7% in 2012. I have been waiting on this all week. Dark crimson pour with a bubbly tan foam that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma is bold, capturing a fruity note of dried grapes, mild citrus, and a whiff of Crown Royal (Canadian Rye whiskey). Lightly carbonated. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium-full bodied, this packs a punch. Strong alcohol character balanced by the gentle bitterness of the citrusy hops. Hint of toffee and oakiness in the finish similar to other I&G brews. Absolutely superb.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a nice, resilient white head. Smell is oak and cherry. Taste is caramel, toffee, brown sugar, a touch of wood. Very sweet. Some subtle earthy bitterness, along with quite a bit of cherry and fruits. Wood is felt post-gulp. Light bodied. Excellent, very good beer!

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Rich aroma of caramel malt and oak. Amber colour with a frothy white head and lace. Syrupy texture with a maple syrup and whiskey flavour. Slight roasted malt with a smooth finish.

wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2013
(From Beers of Europe) Deep amber, small off-white head. Vanilla, oak and toffee. Definitely Innis & Gunn then! As with all their beers it may be too sweet for some but I think it’s full of flavour and a great laid back mellow late night beer.

3.3
kevinsenn (2289) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle from LCBO. Beautiful clear deep ruby brown, with pretty much no head. Aroma of fruit punch, oak, and toffee. Taste is some fruit, lots of oak, some alcohol, and a mildly bitter finish.

4.3
worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Deep dark maroon with a red tint and a foamy thin tan quick disappearing head. Smells of oak, sweet malt, earthy, dark fruits like cherry and vanilla. Stong full musky aroma. Full oily body. Taste of wood and caramel, malt, toffee with a dry bitter hop finish. Deep full cherry flavour. Noticable alcohol. Sips slowly and tastes like a good scotch. Beautiful.
