2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Rich dark brown colour, good head. Sweet spicy grassy malt aroma. Rum & malt flavour. A bit too strong sweet and sickly for my liking.

Well it started off smelling fruity,then smelt warmth/spicyness. Taste is same body taste as most Innus n Gunn I had. Taste boozy,citrus orange like on the fruity part with a hint of spicyness.A little much for me but worth trying out. cheer’s.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Skunky nose (damn clear bottle!) with some malt. Malty and skunky flavor with a sweet and syrup rum finish. Get this stuff in a brown bottle and it might be tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes: Poured reddish-amber with a thick, ivory-colored head. Sweet caramelly aroma, with notes of vanilla and spice. Medium-thick with a nice depth of flavor. Mild, malty sweet taste up front that gives way to a pleasing warming note of rum and vanilla in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
this beer had a clear, bright red-brown pour with bronze color at the sides of the glass and made a three to four finger head of off-white and light tan colored bubbles, the effervescence looked to be medium or so, this beer left some spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle,
the aromas were wood, faint vanilla, caramel, rum liquor and malt,
there were flavors of wood, vanilla, some toasted malt, faint spice and rum,
mouth feel was a little less than medium, some creaminess on the palate,
a nice drink, the rum and wood stood out in this drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky amber brown with little head. Smell is malt forward with hints of oak and sweetness. Taste is nutty with oak and rum, vanilla and some dark fruit accents, but watered down. Not bad but one was enough for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. This brew pours a dark amber-orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Oaky aroma with notes of dark malt and ripe fruit. Medium body with flavors of oaky vanilla, ripe fruit and earthy malt. The finish is sweet with the rum taste coming through in the end. The different elements don’t quite come together in the end. Just alright overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful chestnut colour with a dish-soap foamy head. Lightly spicy and weighted with vanilla and orange peel. Heaps of toffee on the nose and in the mouth, bringing a sweetness that dominates the whole experience. It is, however, not overbearing. The beer is surprisingly light and lacks any real kind of heat. There is the smallest hint of a traditional British hop in the dusty finish. Unique.

Pretty flat and malty on the nose. Nothing special. Plenty in the mouth though. Very relaxed but with heaps of delicious sweet but spicy rum flavours. Very old-school sailor style. I actually like the flavour that is brought out here. Very different. Not too delicate or culture but definitely different.
