3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deeply brilliant woods – like those one finds in a centuries old gentleman’s club in the storied cobbled streets of London – cherry and mahogany. A thick tan head fades into a carefree bubbly collar bordering a thin puddle resting in the middle.
Dark fruits explode from the mahogany and cherry depths below with raisins, dates, prunes, and figs covered in sticky saucy black strap molasses. Black root and black licorice root in the raw. Plump earthen leathery spicy grapes. Cooked and cooled raw demerara sugars.
Sweet, rich, dense, mysterious, and a bit roguish. Burnt demerara sugars and unfettered black strap molasses and the finest dark aged rum one could hope to savor. Burnt brown sugar and molasses hard candies. Intriguing addition of red licorice in the back of each swallow. Swimming amidst it all are meaty raisins, figs, and dates. Eyes closed – a fine rummy dram. Eyes open – a fine Scottish pint.
Wonderful. Sweet suppable perfection in my glass. Innis & Gunn can play around with as many barrel/wood aged varieties as their heart desires. In return, I shall aspire to drink as many as possible because I can and I want to.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - pours ruby with a lacy off white head. Definite hit of rum on the nose, sugary malt too. Taste is a bit unremarkable, malt, didn’t get the rum taste. Palate is on the thin side.

Quite good. A bit on the sweet side. Haven’t I’ve been a bit oversensitive on sugar, this might have been a splendid beer. But this was a bit too sweet.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of butter scotch, butter popcorn and just plain butter. Similar taste, buttery with some vanilla. Also some oak and rum. Way to much diacetyl. Not drinkable. How can this get such a high score?

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
delicious aromas of dark dried fruit, rum raisins, dark caramels, vanilla, milk chocolate, toffee, with some buttery hints; thus expecting a silky, smooth, caramel-cool mouthfeel, the fizzy carbonation is a let-down, too fizzy for the aromas to shine again; also: quite some alcoholic heat and too much kind of an empty sweetness.
