3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. A lively, deep & clear mahogany coloured beer that poured with a fizzy & rapidly dispering loose, bubbly off-white to beige head. Sweet & buttery toffee malt aromas with a slightly skunky, toasted malt dryness. Predominantly sweet again on the tongue: a combination of more buttery, toffee notes with rum & raisin. A gentle spice in the mix too. Like a rum, raisin & vanilla ice cream of sorts with a delicate woody, toasted malt character evident. Medium body & medium carbonation. Doesn’t quite have that mid-palate emptiness that many pasteurised bottled beers do. Gentle in the finish with a light rum bitterness & a lingering fruity sweet aftertaste.

On tap at the Dutch, pours a dark amber color small head with ok retention. Oak, raisin and plum in the nose. Sweet in the mouth, slightly cloying but with so much depth. Yes, this is tasty.

Very unique aroma this beer gives off, with a clear distinct rum scent to it. Kind of threw me off a little bit after tasting all of Innis & Gunn’s selection but it was my favorite. Love the story behind the aging process.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought Innis and Gunn Rum Cask Oak Aged Beer from EBI in Saratoga Springs.
Poured into a 16oz pint glass, this beer is a pleasant copper color with a 1-1 1/2 finger white head that dissipates at an average speed. Mild to medium carbonation.
The aroma is sweet, as is the taste. I taste toffee, caramel, and even something resembling maple syrup, but the sweetness isn’t overbearing. There is a faint warming from the alcohol and the flavors come together pretty nicely.
While I’m not sure this is something I’d add to my usual rotation, it was a pleasant treat.

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.

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.
