I dream about this beer! Seriously, it is an absolutely amazing beverage. The color is spot on amber orange. The smell is caramel and vanilla and malt and scotch. It tastes like it smells but the after taste lingers so nicely, I enjoy the sweetness that it comes with as I am a fan of dessert in general. It is potent....you don't notice the alcohol content until it is too late...

I was takin back when I saw this. I was at a trade show and the only female rep that was their was the innis & gunn rep. So obviously I went over and when I started trying her product I was dumb founded to day the least. I tried the original the porter the rum aged and the Canadian chereywood limited edition and their were all amazing. And since than I make sure to keep them in my fridge at all times it's hard to get sometimes cause the distributor doesn't always have it in stock but I say when your at your local liquor store and you see anything with the innis & Gunn name on it buy it you will not be disappointed at all

A - beautiful golden colour, light head
S - sweet, slightly oaky smell
T - fruity, sweet and wonderful taste. A great beer with a complex flavour.
M - smooth
O - a great beer worthy of several more.

When I can find this beer, it is a must drink. Recently on a Belgian beer tour, no one had heard of this beer and it's such a shame because it so wonderful.

One of my favorite beers.

Poured from a bomber.

Smell is outstanding with a strong smell of alcohol almost like a bourbon

Mouthfeel. Is smoooth all day long. I love a smooth beer with little carbonation and this beer hits it right where I like it

I prefer the original over Sind of the other Innis Gunn offerings, but I am determined to try then all

I highly recommend this beer to anyone who enjoys a smooth beer with an alcohol smell to it.
