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.

A: clear, dark ruby red liquid topped with a bumpy, messy, dense tuft of coffee-creme colored foam... the head falls down within a couple minutes, little lacing
S: initial unmistakable I&G profile... bold fresh oak grain, perfume of vanilla-creme coated malted chocolate, and potent undercurrent of dry cherry/currant liqueur... tiny hint of cigar in the far background
T: up front - husks of chocolate malt, vanilla-soaked coffee beans... delicate essence of coffee roast on top midway... understated rush of very dry dried cherry with a kiss of tobacco in the finish... hardly sweet and only mildly bitter (tannic)
M: light-medium-bodied... super soft with a warm, sanded-smooth tannic chaser... mellow, dry finish with a faint warmth
O: not too different from their other beers - flavorful, dry, easy drinking, maybe a bit drier - the roasted elements, though subtle, do make this stand out among the rest... of the 4 I've now had, they seem to shine most at the extremes of color - the lightest (original) and darkest (bourbon stout) have been the best and relatively most distinctive... let's see if that trend continues the more I try

Pours a half finger of head on a clear brown colored body.
The aroma smells like caramel candy. That's it.
The taste is caramel sweet overall with some bitter metallic notes in the middle. It's not particularly pleasing.
The texture is thin with moderate carbonation.
I did not enjoy this beer.
