Beautiful dark amber color. Nice mix of caramel, vanilla and rum aroma. Medium body, some sweet malt flavor, and a quite evident Bourbon-Rum touch. Very pleasant.

(Bottle, thanks to larsniclas) Amber color, offwhite head. Sweetish oak aroma, sugary, fruity and of course with some rum. Oak flavor, rum, sweetish, vanilla and coconut, milky notes. Quite malty finish. Different but not bad at all.

33cl bottle from Sainsbury. well this should be interesting. I don’t like Innis and Gunn beers and I don’t like rum too much either. Mind you, it is a good looking beer, a kind of a mead, reddish gold clear hue. Aroma isn’t bad either with some rum, some whisky and an unexpected smooth toastiness. Good toffeee and caramel too. So a pretty good start. And then I drank it and everything went just so wrong. It doesn’t help that the underlying beer has been filtered and pasteurised to death. In fact the rum over the top is the only thing that is keeping this thing going. Makes it sweeter than it’s other woody brothers. Its not so bad once you downgrade your tastebuds and the sweetish rum does save it some. It’s kind of alright. And it I wanted something bizarre to tempt a spirit drinker to beer I might give them this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, light brown to amber beer topped by a dense, off-white to light beige head. Butterscotch, candy, caramel and a roasted touch in the aroma. Pleasant, although a bit high levels of carbonation, full body, rather sweetish, and with caramel and some roasted notes. Caramel and toffee in the end, with some warming notes. Dries up a bit in the end, where there’s also some bitterness. A decent one, but as the other Innis & Gunn beers, there’s lot’s of butterscotch. 120915

Bottle. It pours a clear, chestnut color, with lively carbonation forming a finger-thick beige head that stays. The aroma is quite vinous, with berries, dark dried fruits and some booze. A little oaky vanilla touch and a whiff of spices also shows up. Slightly toffee-ish as it warms. It’s full-bodied, smooth and slightly warming on the palate, finishing with a pleasant bitterness and blue plums and prunes. The initial flavor has quite a lot of dried fruits and prunes, but is very light on oak and spices. Some brown sugar and toffee blends in, but are left in the background. Damn, I’m not normally an Innis & Gunn guy, but this one is both complex and tasteful. Nice! 101002

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear ruby color, small vanishing brownish head. Strong aroma is a mix of toffee (even butterscotch or vanilla fudge) and rum. Woody, nutty flavor - toffee and rum are also here. Fizzy carbonation in the start, but then a bit empty, hard mouthfeel. This is more a gimmick than really good one. Very similar to Island Cask - just whiskey is replaced by rum. Their "base beer" Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer is just not good enough to make these barrel aged brews excellent.
