nice, heavy mouthfeel with undertones of both molasses and toffee. Love the beer, reminiscent of sweet potato soufflet on a cold winter night.

Inniss & Gunn take all the characteristics of a solid porter and make it fun with notes of peat, oak and molasses. Nothing mind blowing, just a fun beer showcasing the barrel aging that the brewery is well known for.

My long review was lost after I added it. Shorter version: single finger head, excellent lacing, deep amber body. Aroma of molasses oak caramel, mint, earthy hops. Flavor is similar but less sweet more earthy also with caramel, oak, molasses. Medium body moderate carbonation. Complex and flavorful.

Appearance – The beer pours a dark brown color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell - First thought was WISKEY, then picked up some vanilla and toast in it.
Taste -sweet caramel malts up front, medium amber molasses, oak understated and a very dry dried cherry with a kiss of tobacco in the finish... hardly sweet and only mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side with a carbonation level that was on the slightly lower side.

Overall- more of a wee heavy/scotch ale. It lacks a lot of roasted flavor which a porter should have in my mind, but it does have a nice blend of sweeter/sugary flavors with a nice maltiness.
