750 ml poured into a 22 oz. glass
A- Pours a brownish amber, about a finger of frothy and a little bit creamy head that fades to about a half finger, slightly above average carbonation.
S- Very sweet scotch malt smell. Some floral notes, a little bit of caramel, some oak, pretty complex, unique, one of the better smelling beers I've smelt.
T- Sweet malty taste, similar to smell. Sweet caramel malts mixed with a light scotch, with a very faint oak finish. Has a sweet scotch after-taste.
M- A little bit on the heavier side, syrupy (a little bit too much for my liking), not too much carbonation, abv well hidden.
O- I haven't had too many Scotch Ales (probably somewhere between 5-10), but this definitely ranks as one of the best if not the best one I had. It was definitely dominated by a sweet malty taste, almost a little bit too sweet. If you like a scotch flavor and really sweet beers this beer is probably the one for you. However if you hate sweet syrupy beers I would probably stay away.
The cask age didn't impart too much of an oak flavor. It would definitely be interesting to try this beer if it was aged a little bit longer.

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.

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.
