Deep hazel body, small tan head
Big fruity malts, brown sugar, smoky
Warming alcohol, rich fruity tones, generous spicing
rich & toffee
Rich, dark and inviting, Innis & Gunn's Bourbon Dark Ale is a sumptuous Barrel-Aged Dark Ale with a seductive chestnut body and attractive tan head. With a bouquet as imposing as the caramel coloured body, Bourbon Dark Ale breathes warm, woody scents, with big brown sugar, vanilla and Bourbon whisky notes, a theme that is carried effortlessly onto the palate.
Set in a full body, the tasting experience continues with more demerara sugar and fruity plum and orange marmalade malts, and a warming Bourbon whisky alcohol tones that spreads comfortably across the palate to close on a lingering spice character that is especially pronounced thanks to a one-month barrel aging.
