Min tredje Innis: Den mjuka ek-smaken knns helt klart och har bra styrka och balans i alla avseenden och man kommer direkt att tnka p whiskey av ngon anledning, mhnda det r fr ek-smaken som framtrder tydligt. Dock tycker jag det r en alltfr "vanlig" smak p len, inte alls nt speciell. ~ My 3:rd Innis: The soft oak-taste is obvious and have good strength and balance in all the aspects and I immediatly thinking on whiskey for some reason, purhaps its because the oak-taste. But I think this beer hal too usual beer-taste, not at all wery special

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 500ml can from LCBO. Low carbonation. Toffee flavours at forefront. Well incorporated alcohol. Oak in the aftertaste, some very minor vanilla in the finish

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bouteille claire de 330 ml, dans une bote de carton, achete la LCBO de Hawkesbury. Dguste le 3 octobre 2009 (pint). Bire rousse limpide. Mousse peu, col mince et phmre. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de bois bien prsente. Got peu agrable genre gazon/foin. Saveur de whisky, un peu de caramel/toffee. Ce nest pas mon genre de bire, il faut probablement tre amateur de whisky pour bien lapprcier.

zimbo (949) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Slight whisky element to start on the nose this mad a very light and very fluffy head. Amber brown. Unusual morish flavour at first with very forward wood and slightly smokey malty butteriness which lingers. Not unpleasant nut unique. Slightly on the fat side and the whiskjy elelement is always there creating some acidity. Alcohol does eventually poke through as does its heaviness.Interesting but I had to force myself to finish it.

Post Borefts I Invasion of Fonefan and Charlottes room tasting! Clear amber beer. Butterscotch malt, not too sweet. Really not tasting that much else. Either my taste has changed or Innis & Gunn have gone downhill sharply.

Drank at the Newtown Brewfest. A brew with a rye, bread and maple flavor. There was a mild wood and toffee taste. It was ok for me.

pours ruby red, small head gone in 30 seconds, minimal lacing. A bit of malts on the nose. On the palate, burst of raisiny 6/10 sweetness, some orange in there, mild bitter hops in the background, and a bit of toffee. Minor spices at the start and finishes semi-dry and again with the toffee. Excellent balance, medium complexity, short-medium length, medium depth. A balanced malty beer consisting of sweet raisin/orange fruits, malts, a bit of toffee, and minor spice.

reebtogi (6143) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
330mL bottle poured a light brown color with a slightly off-white head and some fine lacing. Aromas of whiskey and caramel. Taste is mild whiskey with some caramel sweetness and a dry hoppy finish. This is a fine beer with nice carbonation and a medium body.

330ml bottle. 2009 edition. Red/copper colour. Good crispness and a delicious taste of rye whisky. A very good beer. Shame about it being a limited edition.
