2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Innis & Gunn have a way of making their beers resemble soda pop. For one, the bottle looks like a high-end rootbeer bottle and for two the beers resemble soda pop in both superficial and emaningfrul ways. This one in particular is just a slightly lighter shade than rootbeer and pours w/ a large bubbled and quickly dissipating head. The nose is sort of a musty toffee-ish flavor but the flavor has a sweet anise spicy character that resembles rootbeer to a noticeable degree. It’s good overall, I would say, and there is real beer character but it’s dominated by caramel sweetness and barrel character. I like the stuff I just don’t know if it’s quite what I look for in a beer, barrel aged or otherwise.

Flaske: Lys flaske brun øl med et let skumhoved. Duften er igen makro. Smagen er langt bedre med en god del rom. Ikke fantastisk.

Bottle gifted by the next door neighbor - many thanks! Easy toffee and caramel in the nose, quite sugary, slight aftertaste of rum(?). A nice beer.

11.2 oz bottle fizzy white head no lacing smells like sugary sweet but definitely rum notes. Taste like brown sugar with vary little rum but all in all a good beer would drink it again

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.
