Disappointing. Was expecting more. It's just scotch ale and a bad one at that.

Well picked this up the other night and was expecting a porter. More towards a scoth ale. Pours a deep red with not much of head. Tasted like a porter gone wrong but good if you are into the scotch ales. Over all it was ok but wont be going at this again.

Served in a Boulevard tulip snifter.

Where better to bring a new I&G beer than to VDubb's? This stuff pours a clear ruby-studded sienna topped by a half-finger or so of wan tan foam. The nose comprises dried maple syrup, oak, vanilla bean, light cocoa powder, very light roasted malts, light vague stonefruit, and a hint of booze wafting in the breeze. The taste is a blast of oak followed by a cigar wrapped in dank greens and dipped in sweet caramel and maple syrup. Unlike most other I&G offerings, this one falls apart on the tongue, coming across muddled, confused, and leaving us in a similar place. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a definite disappointment here. It's not a complete train wreck, but it's not very good, either.

This brew pours a deep mahogany amber with thin white head, dying down to a thin pond of white foam and light lacing. Nose is of molasses, toffee, crème Brule, a hint of dark fruit, and light oak. Taste is sweet caramel malts up front, medium amber molasses, oak in the back and a light sherry like texture. A light chocolate finish mixing with mild bittering hops on the aftertaste makes this a most excellent brew. I am becoming a fan of Innis and Gunn, and will definitely have them again when the opportunity arises.

Cheers!
