Nice complex beer. Brown coloured and clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Aroma is sweet, has clear notes of vanilla and malt, faint nutty too. Flavor starts sweet, more vanilla, faint fruity too. Finish moderate bitter. Creamy, dry texture and soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark ruby colour with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet toffee malt, dark fruits and a sweet oakiness from the rum barrels. Taste is also sweet toffee malt with some fruit and some oak rum notes leading to a sweet finish with hints of sourness and next to no bitterness. I like that they tried aging it in Rum barrels as opposed to the more common whiskey barrels which gives an unique flavour and aroma. Overall, itís OK.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Appearance: Pours clear, deep ruby/amber in colour. Lively head that is slightly off-white and completely disappears after a short while. No lacing.
Aroma: oaky, doughy, notes of raisin and rum.
Taste: slightly sweet, smokey
Palate: light/medium body with slick texture contrasted by average carbonation that becomes quite soft about half way through. Smooth rum-like sugary finish
Overall: Stands our due to hints of rum and smokiness. Would recommend this to somebody looking for a smooth, interesting brew.

Not much nose to speak of but nice drinking overall. Slight rum flavor with a clean finish. A bit of alcohol taste as it goes down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2012 (First Taste, Home, 330mL Bottle, Vintage Sept. 2011, Lager Glass, 7.4% ABV, Chilled, 01/04/12. #31.)
Appearance (3/5): Pours a clear, deep, mahogany brown, with a small. frothy, light brown head that fully diminishes and leaves little lacing.
Aroma (7/10): Distinct Innis and Gunn aroma of smoky oak, vanilla, and dark toffee dominates, with a little raisin and rummy spiciness.
Taste (7/10): A little sweeter then the Original Innis and Gunn, which goes to say it is quite sweet. Begins with vanilla, toffee, and raisin, imparting a muted sweetness that is intense but not cloying. Finishes with slightly bitter campfire flavors that present a long finish.
Palate (4/5): Medium body, soft carbonation, and a thick oily texture. Slightly thicker than the Original, with a stickier and even warmer finish
Overall (14/20): Not a subtle beer, with its big, bold, rich flavors and intense sweetness, but itís drinkable and has a pleasant "comfort food" profile. This beer has substance and character.
Drinkability: 3/5. Character: 5/5. Buy Again: Yes.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours a medium-dark brown with a small white head and an aroma of sweet malts, caramel and rum. The taste is really sweet, with hints of honey, toffee and a weird coconut-like taste I really dislike. I wonít drink this again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a goblet. A thin head formed, a clear copper color body.
It smells like tobacco, vanilla and faint molasses. Very nice.
Sweet but not malty sweet. Vanilla dominates the taste. The ale is in the background with a little, very little, bitterness coming through.
Smooth and creamy with a nice bubbly texture. Medium body.
Wonderful drink. The rum cask did an awesome job with the beer.
