Innis & Gunn, founded in 2003 and based in Edinburgh, Scotland, makes a number of aged, limited edition ales in addition to their Original, Blonde and Rum Cask. Their limited edition Irish Whiskey Cask, as its name implies, is a rich Scottish stout matured in barrels that formerly contained triple-distilled Irish whiskey. It represents an ironic reversal of the process that gave birth to Innis & Gunn Original. While we do not detect any whiskey flavors in this aged brew, we do taste a whiskey-like bitterness on the long finish. At 7.4 per cent ABV, Irish Whiskey Cask makes for an excellent sipping beer and is almost a meal in itself.
Spice & Dark Chocolate
Cinnamon is a versatile spice. You can stir it into oatmeal , add it to chili, and even snort it (not recommended). We thought we’d add it to our already delicious Drafty Kilt as a special treat. The addition of locally-roasted Batdorf & Bronson coffee and cocoa nibs makes this treat even more indulgent. Refined notes of spice and dark chocolate abound, making this beer perfect for a cold winter (week)night.
Aged in Tequila Barrels
Como Te Llamas is an imperial stout aged in tequila barrels. This beer was created as an homage to the classic flavors of the Horchata. Cinnamon, lactose, nutmeg, and brown sugar add depth and a creaminess that pairs well with herbaceous fresh tequila barrels.
