Innis & Gunn
Scotland, United Kingdom

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is our firstborn brew, whose accidental discovery started our story in 2003. Its originality also lies in its singular taste – notes of biscuity malt and vanilla swirling within a creamy, mellow character.

A pioneering beer, its flavour finds favour with brewing juries, blind tasting panels and barflies alike.

I love the appearance it just looks like a great beer! The smell is not to my liking and smells to me like a cheaper beer of which this wasn't that inexpensive. Almost smells like PBR. The feel/ finish of the beer is my favorite part. It ends with a beautiful honey taste and leaves the tongue feeling like it was just covered in a thin layer of honey. This made this beer very appealing to me. It may not sound appealing and I would agree but it actually was a good part of this beer. taste whys I honestly cannot tell if I like this beer. It is a difficult decision. It's a bit of a heavier beer so definitely not a session beer. Again, the taste is so hard to tell, the first pat of the sip isn't the best but then it gets sweeter and turns to honey. Totally unique and different from any other beer I've had. I do like. Would I buy it again? Maybe, hard to say. maybe would get it again on a cold night where I just want to sit and rest.

draft at beer study. into a snifter.

pours a dark copper with a nice head. smell is very much according to style with the nice bourbony scent. taste stays true to scent with some great oak characteristics. 100% on point to style. mild bodied, mild carbonation

overall a great representation of the style!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a golden amber color with a quickly dissipating 1 finger head. Very little carbonation.

S: This really caught me off guard. I was expecting boozey dominance, but it is nowhere to be found. Instead, there'a oak, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and sweet pear. Super sweet.

T: Caught off guard again. Follows the nose pretty closely. Sweetest beer I think I've ever tried.

M: Medium body with slight carbonation. Slight boozey tingle.

O: This was surprising to say the least. Sweetness everywhere! This seemed really balanced and had really strong scents and flavors, but to me, this was jus too sweet. Glad I had it, but I'll probably never buy again.

Bottled and sampled over something like five years and it seems to diminish in body as time goes along
so it pours a decent enough looking beer with golden body and white heard not much aroma and fairly bdull toffee flavour

BB MAR2014

A: Pours a golden amber color with just over a fingers worth of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Oak, vanilla, toffee, a light fruitiness, and maltiness make up the aroma

T: Starts off with the vanilla and oak and goes into a toffee sweetness along with some fruity notes. Finishes with some malt sweetness and a bit of graininess

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice oak aged beer that displays the barrels nicely. Not to much in the way of the barrel, so it really shines through. A good dessert beer because of the sweetness, but not a bad any-time beer either
