1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle as "Innis & Gunn Rum Finish" with 6,8% ABV. Red copper body, medium head. Aroma has vanilla, toffee and vodka. Thin mouthfeel - you can tell it’s cheap even from that. Taste has artificial rum essence and caramel syrup with sawdust. I’d rather drink some random beer with a shot of actual rum than this. Vile, vile stuff.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Pours dark reddish-brown with a small beige head, leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, some maple syrup and honey, together with a well hidden malt backbone. A bit of alcohol. Taste reveals some delicate character - it is still a bit sweet but not syrupy any longer. It feels as a lighter version of cognac, well aged. It has some honey, caramelized fruit and a bit of warming alcohol. And yes, finish feels like rum, just as it is saying on the label. This beer is a treat, especially on a chilly winter day.
