Nicely Package and that's about where it ends. Draws no comparisons to other BA stouts offered. Really disappointed

I found this to be a really well done bourbon oak-aged stout. Glad I had the chance to try this one.

The beer that introduced me to Innes & Gunn. Black appearance but actually deep mahoghany with red hues when backlit with a lasting but frothy tan head, leaves some lacing on glass. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and charred oak. Tastes of malt and chocolate with lingering bourbon flavor. Mouth feel has slight carbonation bite but not heavily carbonated., not as smooth as many stouts.

A - poured an apparent dark brown with gave way to pure ruby when held to a decent source of light. The head was about one finger light tan with a mix of fine a large bubbles.

S - the smell is very sweet, sweet candy sugar and malt, heavy toffee, lots of vanilla and rum. Aroma seems to be a prelude to a overly sweet cloying beer.

T - the taste is very complex, tons of sweet malt, but not as sweet as the aroma. There certainly is a candied flavor, but it is still enjoyable. What I love most is the smokey almost peaty notes I'm picking up, finish is nice and smokey, with a good balance of hop bitterness.

M - the feel is a little weak for a BBA stout, but on par for the abv though, ample carbonation. Finish Is mid sweet, not to bad and balanced well with the bitter hops.

O - overall an interesting beer. It is certainly a reprieve from most stouts, on the sweeter side but not offensively cloying. The smokey character makes it stands out and is really enjoyable. I'd drink it again but not more then one in a sitting.

Across the board, an even 4. Right from the start, this one was pure. A nice golden, amber, almost rich oak in color. The bourbon aroma came right through from the start. The initial taste had a little alcohol present, yet this was very smooth. A big mouthful, bigger than other Innis & Gunn's I've tried.
The aftertaste end as beer began.. Smooth with a presence of bourbon, just enough to let you know it was there.

Disappointing beverage.
Had an overly sweet caramel taste, and got a faint metallic smell when i poured it, like the smell of an oily coin. The beer itself tasted ok. However, the weird smell, and sweetness makes this a not so good beer.
