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 beers 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.

Im a sucker for I&G beers. I adore their aromas. Big butterscotch, whiskey and oak. Pours a ruby copper with a small off white top. Taste is a stinging oak driven toffee with sweet malt and whiskey overtones.

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.

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!

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.

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 (2239) - 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 its full of flavour and a great laid back mellow late night beer.

kevinsenn (2146) - 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.

worldbeertaste (1800) - 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.
