750 ml clear bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of rum, vanilla, oak, light carmel and a hint of fruittiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of rum, vanilla, oak and light toffee with a smooth lingering vanilla finish. This is my idea of an ideal session beer. Stuu666 (15985) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2013

Bottled 330ml in presentation box from Sainsburys, Banbury. Poured Tawny brown but hard to muster up a head. Innis & Gunn aged beers are difficult to rate for me as the titles on the boxes are so intriguing so that the final results are largely disappointing. This is perhaps a little fuller than most but the depth appears to be butterscotch, caramel notes. The beer is fairly sweet, I get some astringency, woodiness, but the discovery is never a eureka moment. Just slightly on the dull side. gunnfryd (15794) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
