This is a really wonderful beer that according to the story was created by accident.
I usually pick up one of these 660mL bottles for $4.10 when i go beer shopping. Its a dark golden colour, the smell is really pungent and brilliant, leaves about a finger of head.
The flavour is marvelous, the oak flavour really comes through, they age it in barrels for 77 days. Its a very complex flavour, malty, fruity, oaky, with toffee and a sweetness too, without going too far in any one direction. At 6.6% ABV its definitely a sipper, but pairs well with a lot of food without fading away or dominating your palette too much.
I for one am very happy for this accident of a beer and glad that many others have enjoyed it as well and made it so widely available. Innis and Gunn have since expanded the brand and made many wonderful variations.
