Very smooth and drinkable. Extremely so for a 8% beer. One of the smoothest beers I've ever tasted and bursting with flavours. Yeast, malt, lemon, pineapple. Very much like a souped-up witbier in my opinion. Beautiful!

Chocolate, treacle, raisins, apples, blackcurrant, chocolate. I has it all! Pours almost black with a virtually non-existent head. Very rich and full-bodied, but still surprisingly drinkable. THe perfect dark beer in my opinion. Love it!
Innis & Gunn India Pale Ale

Big fan of most Innis & Gunn beers, but to be honest, this one was a grave disappointment. Been trying some really fine IPAs recently and unfortunately this one has failed to measure up. Tastes like an IPA and has a nice spicy quality, but the overpowering grapefruit taste leaves me with little else to write about. While some IPAs have a smooth, sometimes sweet aftertaste, this one leaves you with the bitterness until you can find something else to wash it down with.

Quite simply, the best Weizen out there. All the flavours mash together perfectly: Wheat, banana, toffee, butterscotch, .... A little sweetness to make it pleasing to the palate, but a smooth dryness which makes it anything but sickly. Refreshing, subtle, but flavourful. Love it!

Beautiful, chocolatey, strong stout with loads of character. When it comes to a strong stout, it doesn't come much better than this (excluding the finest imperial stouts). Extremely smooth and flavour in abundance. Loving that I finally got the chance to try it!
