I picked up this attractive looking bottle at the LCBO. It stands out on the store shelves with it's clear bottle, unique labeling, shape and color. It's marked for expiration in a little under a year which seems liberal given it's a clear bottle.

None-the-less, this beer which is aged in oak barrels originally used to mature malt whiskey, starts out on a good foot. The color is pleasing and it pours a silky little head that stays with the beer right to the bottom of your glass.

At first smell you pick up hints of vanilla, oak and a hint of whiskey. But when you taste it the full flavor comes out. Honey, oak, vanilla, whiskey and a malty finish await you. It's good. At first I found the finish a little sweet.. but towards the end of the glass I was hoping for another.

This one is a keeper and I think you'll enjoy it as well.

Re-review: This beer needs a hoppier finish. A great taste but the sweetness is over powering.

Picked up a mixed 4 pack of Innis and Gunn because I am Scottish. Good looking and smelling beer with an outstanding flavor. One of better beers for me so far but not a great value overall do to cost versus quality. Probably won't try again but certainly would drink if available.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Marshall Street Bar and Grill in Rochester, NY.

Pours a light honey brown. Small, half inch head, not much lacing.

Smells like toffee, vanilla, and wood.

Tastes are very similar. Strong toffee, almost like buttercrunch candy. Some smokiness, slight whiskey flavors with vanilla and brown sugar.

Slightly thin mouthfeel, low carbonation. Pretty drinkable.

This is a pretty low key barrel aged beer, probably good for people who want to try the style without diving in too deeply.

Serving type: on-tap
