From a bottle. Looks nice, mahogany reddish brown with tan head. Aroma is strong, toffee and vanilla with a fruity berry edge. More of the samenon the taste, fairly standard innis and gunn flavor profile, quite unbalanced but with a pleasant fruitiness. Quite sweet and alcohol prominent.

33 cl. poured in the I&G stem glass. Clear dark red-brown with a lasting ring of foam. Nose is nearly-scorched toffee, light orange and oak. Taste is watered-down earthy molasses, spiced orange tea, and vanilla with a hint of oak. Medium body is a little to the sweet side and has a low carbonation. Some dashes of good flavor and character in this one, but they just seem to clash and blend in to a watery, so-so beer. ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2012

Appearance: Pours out a clear, mahogany-hued body with a half-finger of manilla-hued foam.
Smell: Modestly malty, almost as if it’s ashamed of itself. Some dry, raspy caramel with a bit of citrus peel, a spoonful of alcohol, and crestfallen oak wood.
Taste: Very low caramel flavor, with just a hint of sweetness. Heavy pour of unsweetened iced tea. A wooden backdrop throwing off very, very little vanilla touches. Sliver of citrus peel. Minimally bitter. Dry, earthy finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m Innis to win-is, though this brew was very ineffusive, very ineffectual, like it had a tragic run-in with a flavor vampire. The remainder of the mix-pack and even water served in the Innis & Gunn branded glass were more enjoyable.

Amber colour with a frothy lasting head and lace. Toffee malt aroma. Malt vanilla flavour. Strong vanilla finish. Whisky barrel background. andyhwcinc (1886) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed after the last work day of 2011. Appearance is a dark ruby red with a thin white head that rims around the glass. Aroma of vanilla and oak, a touch of English hops, slight malt, smells nice. Taste goes down nice and smooth, can definitely tell it’s oak aged with the vanilla notes and a touch of bourbon. I’m not really getting any spice which is typically attributed to winter brews. It’s still not bad, good stuff. C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2011
Pours red and transparent with a medium, off-white head. Nose is cherry, burnt toffee, oak, orange, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. Mouth feel is chewy with low carbonation. Taste is raspberry syrup and cherry which quickly bitters to grapefruit, burnt toast and cough drops. Finish is dry and bitter. The nose is much better than the taste. It’s all over rather quickly. Not really to my liking. tsmith470 (4) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2011 does not count
I loved the smell of nuts, citrus, that come out of the bottle and more so when put in the glass. The color is a brown with a reddish hue Very minimal head as well. This beer is light which is not what i expected for a winter seasonal. Has a light body, but a lively taste in the mouth. Overall would recommend this to a hop head looking for something lighter.
