3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark brown color, small beige head; woody toffeish aroma with hints of vanill and citrus, rum, even slightly chocolate; flavor starts with kind of hot sweetness reminding me of the original Innis & Gunn and therefore, again, licorice powder (but you may disagree, however, I can’t describe the taste better) smoothening towards the finish and revealing notes of toffee, wood and rum; body is medium with quite high carbonation. I actually liked the original a bit better, but it doesn’t take anything away from this brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
delicious aromas of dark dried fruit, rum raisins, dark caramels, vanilla, milk chocolate, toffee, with some buttery hints; thus expecting a silky, smooth, caramel-cool mouthfeel, the fizzy carbonation is a let-down, too fizzy for the aromas to shine again; also: quite some alcoholic heat and too much kind of an empty sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty almost an unsweetened root beer flavor. A bit earthy. Perhaps a hint of rum but not strong.

Cool boozy grape aroma. Flavor is sweet, light, spiced rum. Not boozy at all, very mellow. The light palate is a plus.
