Faint caramel and vanilla aroma. Overwhelming butterscotch taste. Rum finish? Well, there is lots of vanilla in the aftertaste.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As Innis and Gunn Rum aged 6.8%. Poured into glass from the gift set. Dark ruby brown color with a tan head that fades. Aroma is sweet malt with vanilla and oak notes. There’s probably more in the aroma but I’ve got a little bit of a cold. Flavor is nutty with some sweet malt and vanilla. Not really getting anything that says rum. I imagine if I aged a Newcastle on oak this is probably what it’d taste like. Light/medium bodied with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. Overall a decent and quite drinkable beer, but not nearly as complex as I would have expected.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6.8% version. Dark wood colour with a small white head leaving tendrils of lacing. Medium body, slightly oily and a nice bit of carbonation - I think the suggestions of it being watery are a bit harsh. Aroma of spice and brown bread. Tastes of malt, rum and banana. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a frothy tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of rum, oak, caramel, and sweet fruits. Taste is caramel malts, rum, and a taste of old oak scraps. Pretty light and watery. Sticky on the palate. Really not all that much going on. Pretty one dimensional. Sweet malty finish.

Bottle. Clear brown with thin, white head. Some sweetness and alcohol, from the rum? Quite thin otherwise but not bad at all. Smooth caramel, low on hops.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours Clear but so dark with red tinge, head is pale magnolia, last although thins. The nose is rum and a spiciness. The taste is a vanilla, oak and rum taste and spice fruits, general sweetness. Medium, almost light body considering the taste. The carbonation fine. A glass of ale to savour its unconventionality!
