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.

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.

Surprised by how much I enjoyed this strong ale. Tastes great for %. Looking forward to trying again. If you don’t like rum taste then this probably is not for you

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild toffee and rum scent. Light mouthfeel. Refreshing and crisp akin to a lager, but with the flavour of an ale. Rum is present in the taste as well, but it isn’t overwhelming. Mixes well with the malt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A surprisingly potent aroma given the taste. The aging gives this beer a mellowness that is nice. A good beer, just not all that stunning. Might work well amped up.

12/22/12 $4and change bottle bought for me by Luke.
Pours dark almost looks like coke with medium head. nose is sweet! has brown sugar and rum smell. taste is just as sweet. Taste is best described as a rum and coke with a little alcohol burn. As for mouthfeel seems very carbonated and watery.
