3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bread, malt, and a little peat in the aroma. Pretty strong rum flavor, along with caramel and vanilla. Finish is a little harsh, but then again I think rum has a pretty harsh finish. Good, but a little less subtle than I expected and/or hoped

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear, dark ruby red with orange highlights, with a medium light tan head. Aromas of rum, vanilla, oak, some sweet malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet rum and oaky vanilla, slightly bitter, with notes of sugar cane, toffee, and vanilla in the finish. Easy-drinking; medium carbonation and medium/full body. Pretty tasty.

Bottle at Rogue Tavern, pours an amber/brown color. Medium head, medium carbonation. Huge "barrel aged" flavor, togh to distinguish the rum. A nice alcohol burn, especially for only 7.4%ABV. Very nice brew.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Oaky, caramel malts, rum stickiness, creamy smooth moutfeel. Just didn’t feel a lot of depth behind the warm sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour of a dark copper with a tint of dark red producing a creamy soft head. Rounded nose of whiskey, vanilla, fig, raisin, and sweet Caramel hiding in the back, almost as if she knew my nose was coming to the party. When the flavors hit it reveals a quick dry note leading into raisin, fig, and ole whiskey to stir things up. Sweet caramel quickly comes to the rescue and sweetens things up. This one isn’t quite as it would appear as it is lighter on the palate. A very pleasing brew of sorts to my preferred liking. Sweet and robust yet somewhat mild.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco
Appearance - Dark ruby brown, thin white head with moderate lacing.
Aroma - Molasses, rum, wood, hint of vanilla, smoke, dark berries, no hops. Fairly complex.
Taste - Unusual flavour of dark sugars, rum, oak, smoke, bit medicinal, hint of cake spices, bubblegum. Complex flavour.
Palate - Medium body, no bitterness, no hops, low carb. Finish is warming and a continous of the main taste. COnsiderably sweet.
Overall - This is very unusual. The base beer is very sweet with no hop presence. Interesting at first, but gets cloying by the end of the bottle, and I was getting a bit sick of it. It is slightly better, though, than the standard I&G.

The thing that has disappoints me most about Innis&Gunn beers is their failure to keep a head. That said, this pours a beautiful dark red colour, and has more of the vanilla/oak taste that we are led to expect. I don’t get much rum flavour, which would seem to be the point of this one, but it’s less bland than their "original". Damned with faint praise, I know, but I would drink this again.
