Canadian Cask 2009 (Innis and Gunn)

Canadian Cask 2009 (Innis and Gunn)

Ratebeer 3.33 70th percentile
Beer Advocate B

This beer was brewery exclusively for Canada, using Canadian whiskey oak barrels.

Taste +4
Well now, this is something good. Massive nose of sherry, cherries, wood, vanilla and caramel. The taste is just like the nose but with added rye and fruit (raisin).

Aftertaste +1

Very smooth with a slight lingering of raisin and rye; quite dry.

Alcohol Content +1 7.1%

Oddly you cannot taste the ethanol, but you can feel the warmth and burn going down.

Value +1

Any special edition by Innis and Gunn is sure to please. At $5 for a 330ml bottle it is not cheap but worth it.

Ingame Enhancement 0

Nope did not play, did ask what I did either. I can't remember; this beer was finished some time in June.

Overall 7/10

I like a barrel aged beer, so this made my taste buds happy. Sadly it is a limited release, but I&G are always releasing something.
