Old Tomorrow Brewing Monty’s Golden Ryed Ale

Just a quickie review today – Beer! Old Tomorrow is a Toronto brewery that’s pretty new. They’re in a few southern and eastern Ontario pubs and the LCBO, so they’re off to a great start. This “ryed ale” is “Brewed with 100% Canadian Rye Whisky and oak“ which I’m not entirely sure what it means. If

Innis & Gunn Rum Finish with Dan

A quick little review this week, folks, and one that is probably long overdue. Innis & Gunn Rum Finish: once, many years ago, I brushed this aside with an “I don’t like it”, largely because of its rum barrel aging and my distinct distaste for rum in general. I wasn’t being assumptive; I did try

Innis & Gunn Bourbon Dark Ale with Dan

Our last post before Christmas, here’s a solid gift tip: The Innis & Gunn Holiday Pack. You get a heavy duty steel bottle opener and four bottles of beer – Original, Toasted Oak IPA, Rum Finish (review out soon) and this guy, the Bourbon Dark Ale. Part of Innis & Gunn’s Limited Edition range, there’s

Innis & Gunn White Oak Wheat Beer with Dan, Goran & Steve

The last of the new Innis & Gunn (for now) is their White Oak Wheat Beer. This is.. well, it’s a wheat beer over white oak, but maybe you figured that out. It’s also a flavoured beer, as it’s been infused with bergamot and orange. If you’re not familiar with bergamot, it’s that flavour in

Innis & Gunn Limited Edition Highland Ale with Dan, Goran & Steve

Always a good day when a new Innis & Gunn shows up at the LCBO. And as much as we curse the Box Tax, they sure help take a decent picture. This time around it’s the Limited Edition Highland Ale, a golden brew steeped for 30 days with oak from a “famous” highland 18y single

Harviestoun Òrach Slie Golden Ale with Dan, Matt, Brian & Al

Harviestoun Òrach Slie Glenfarclas Cask Aged Golden Ale – so many words. Dan & I have had a Harviestoun before, their Ola Dubh. At the time it was advertised as being aged in Highland Park barrels, but the website doesn’t mention it now. The Òrach Slie is of course the same but in Glenfarclas barrels. We haven’t

Dead Crow Bourbon Beer with Matt, Dan, Brian & Al

Hat-tip to Colin for pointing me in the direction of Dead Crow Bourbon Beer. Not necessarily a ringing hat-tip, but a good lead nonetheless. Dead Crow Bourbon Beer is a… drink from a UK beverage company in Gloucester called SHS Drinks, whose motto is “a thirst for creating great brands”. Not “drinks”, “brands”. There’s no

Labatt Prohibition Series Bourbon Barrel Ale with Brad

I spent a few days down in (relatively) sunny Michigan for a Michigan Municipal League tradeshow, and stumbled across another Canadian. Well, not… not Canadian beer, like Molson Canadian Beer, but a lower-case-upper-case-C Canadian beer…ugh. Let’s try this again – I was down in the States with my buddy Brad for work and we found

Innis & Gunn Scotch Whisky Porter with Davey

We have reviewed a lot of Innis & Gunn beers and products up here at iScotch, and we only disliked two: Original in a can and the Bourbon Stout. The Scotch Whisky Porter makes post 16 in three years for this particular brand, which is kind of crazy. Should probably keep that in mind when I bitch about the gap between releases.
