COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Every ingredient we have used to brew this beer has been selected for its intensity of flavour. Amber and Cara malt have been added to give a rich, almost chewy, malt backbone and body and we have used a classic blend of aroma hops, Fuggles, Goldings and Styrian Goldings to add their signature vibrant characters.
Matured for 48 days

reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head which leaves only small amounts of lacing. Aroma is caramel and oak with a trace of alcohol and vanilla. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with hints of oak and alcohol with an earthy hoppy bitterness. Light to medium body and light carbonation. This is not one of my favorites of the Innis And Gunn oak aged series.

Sweet robust malt and fruit aroma. Clear red orange color with a small white head. Mild sweet beginning with a light bitter finish.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel, butterscotch, malt, and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of butterscotch, malt, caramel, and dusty hops, leading to a dry finish.

Tasted next to the original and rum cask last night. This easily has the most hop influence and last amount of barrel influence of the three beers. In fact, I’m not sure if this was barrel aged like the other two. Mellow spice and molasses flavor. Decent winter beer that’s still tasting alright here at the end of summer.

wheresthepath (2406) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
[330ml bottle from Beers of Europe] Deep amber with a moderate cream head & moderate fizz. Up front are the trademark rich Innis & Gunn flavours that I love of oak, vanilla and (in this particular one) cream soda. However, the carbonation is stronger than usual, and the hops used here give a lemon flavour, neither of which go with the style of beer. In addition there was an unfortunate slight sourness in the finish. I still liked the barrel-aged flavours, but this was not one of the better I&G specials.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2012
Amber colour with a frothy lasting head and lace. Toffee malt aroma. Malt vanilla flavour. Strong vanilla finish. Whisky barrel background.

Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2012
AS part of the Innis & Gunn Boxed set. After the Old Crafty Hen, I was very leery of another English beer in a clear bottle, but I ended up kind of impressed with this. Smells like molasses, strawberry, and toffee. Flavor is brown sugar and oak, with a little bit of berries. Not bad, actually.

nick76 (4404) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2012
The aroma is rather unimpressive with some sweet caramel malt, fruit, wood, and chemicals. The appearance is deep amber with a foamy head. The taste is better than the aroma with a yeasty quality to add to the wood, caramel and a light hop bitterness. The palate is smooth. Overall pretty decent.

BenH (3434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012
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. Not their worste
