Picked this up at the biggest beer store in the UK, Beers of Europe Ltd. Beautiful clear reddish-brown pour with one and a half finger head with decent retention and nice lacing. Huge toasty nose that's full of oak and caramel with hints of vanilla, tobacco, and just a touch of ginger, dark fruit and rum. Toasty caramel and oak dominate the taste as well with lots of vanilla and just a touch of cinnamon. Spiced rum and whiskey are present as well with just a smidgen of cocoa making this a really complex and flavorful brew. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth, mellow and slightly creamy with almost no evidence of the 7.4 ABV. A hugely drinkable beer considering how rich it is. This is my third different offering from Innis & Gunn and it won't be my last. I love barrel-aged beers and these guys know how to do it well. A great choice for my 200th beer review!
