3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle of "rum finish". Beautiful dark chestnut red with an off white head. Aromas of spice, red wine/ dark fruits, vanilla, rum, oak, orange, butter and dark sugar. Taste is very much the same, the vanilla being the star of the party. Does exactly what it says in the bottle in the fact that you get a fantastic rum finish. Strong and rather alcoholic in the mouth feel
A very solid, readily available (supermarket) beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of my favourite beers, and my default go-to tipple. Depth of character of a dark ale, but with the alcohol content and tinge of dark rum searing through the beer flavour, making it taste more like a rum cocktail, or even black Russian, than a beer. Many won’t like that; but it’s definitely something special. Definitely my favourite of the I&G beers range (also try the Treacle Porter if you like this). 330ml means one of these is enough to take the edge off in the evening, 7.4% means you only need two to knock you out.

33 cl bottle. Pours a clear golden fluid with almost no head. Nose is sweet malts and raisins. Taste is kind of sweet as well with some figs and almonds. Abv comes through quite a bit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle labelled 6.8% ABV, pours clear mahogany with a small beige head, that dissipated quickly and left no lacing. Aroma of lightly caramel, butterscotch oak wood, vanilla, dried fruits and a hint of rum. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Overall a tasty flavourful beer, quite sweet and it really does have a rum finish like the label states.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As Innis and Gunn Rum aged 6.8%. Poured into glass from the gift set. Dark ruby brown color with a tan head that fades. Aroma is sweet malt with vanilla and oak notes. There’s probably more in the aroma but I’ve got a little bit of a cold. Flavor is nutty with some sweet malt and vanilla. Not really getting anything that says rum. I imagine if I aged a Newcastle on oak this is probably what it’d taste like. Light/medium bodied with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. Overall a decent and quite drinkable beer, but not nearly as complex as I would have expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle morrisons. Ruby colour no head. Aroma is fruity rum and hints o vanilla. Taste is similar with warming spice, woody hints and toffee malts. Medium body and carbonation. Very like other innis and guns I have tried, but the best one yet I think.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ljusbrun vätska med liten snabbt försvinnande krona. Doften är inte tilltalande. En blandning mellan ale på jäsning och avslagen Rom o Cola. Smaken är sötsliskig med fadd karaktär. Inte en öl i min smak.
