Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear amber with a slightly lacing off-white head. Sweet toffee and wood in the nose - same as in every Innis & Gunn. Medium body, butterscotch and wood, heavy burned caramel. Absolutely no hops. Pretty much the same as all other I & G. 130612

(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear deep amber golden with a dense and creamy beige head leaving laces. Distinct aroma of wood and rum. Medium-bodied, very sweet - almost sticky - caramel. Distinct rum notes and an absolutely absent bitterness. Starts well but ends so-so. 210908

Noze: Cherry is very present with alcool hitting after. A small touch of caramel with a bit of spices. Nice red color but with almost no head. I tought at first that it was flat but was not the case.Very warm attack because of alcool. A lot of sugar: cherry, candy cane, sugar cane; probably because of rum infusing.For those who like beers with a lot of sugar. Would be perfect with blue cheese.

Pours a deep brownish/reddish colour with a one finger off-white compact head. Very strong smells of hay and dryness, with some traces of nutshell and oak wood. Aroma is very complex, it is a powerful mix of rhum and nutty hints, with a caramel-toasted aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very pleasant and itís full-bodied. Very tasty and drinkable, it is one of the most interesting ales iíve ever drunk.

This may be sacrelig to some but I really was disappointed in this. Itís okay, but the alcoholic/rum flavour is too strong.

Not quite as good as oak aged, but ok. Alcoholic strength is a little too obvious, and this goes out of taste to the whole.
