COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited bottling of I&G has been aged with spiced rum oak chips. The result is absolutely delicious, bursting with the flavours of Caribbean spices along with our signature notes of vanilla, toffee and oak.

Thanks, Kevin! Clear glass, eh? Weird, but it doesn’t seem to have effected the beer too much. Nice copper pour with tawny bits poking through here and there. Medium carbonation, gone quickly but not without leaving sticky lacing. Nice decadent nose of soaked oak, vanilla, and piquant fruit. Sweet malty brew benefits from this, and as I had this on a relatively chilly evening it went over well. Not the most complex brew but a fine toffee vehicle.

Bottle from drowland, I guess. Orange pour with a small tan head. Aroma is booze, wood, and raisins. Taste is booze, cinnamon, vanilla, and toast.

Bottle from Fratto. Clear caramel color. Smells and tastes of alcohol, butter, and pumpkin? Odd.

Pours a brown colour, taste is of toffee, malts, xmas pudding, but no rum, strong tasting and well rounded

12 oz. bottle from the Beer Store, Nashua, NH. Pours clear copper with creamy, bubbles of white head. Nose is indeed spiced rum. Starts off with oak, butterscotch and vanilla upfront turning to water downed rum in the finish. To me it tastes like if you let a few ice cubes melt in a half glass of Bacardi. I do like rum but this really isn’t my thing.

Lots of rum and plenty of vanilla really come through on this exceptional offering from Innis & Gunn. Got it at Baruni’s in Baden, PA as a 12 oz bottle.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle, from Tesco Grimsby. Deep gold, thin shortlived creamy coloured head, low condition. Sweet and woody in the nose with hints of toffee and grainy malt, quite bitter and woody initially in the mouth with some sweetness quickly emerging giving hints of toffee and caramel, long woody finish laced with caramel and vanilla sweetness and some retronasal whisky spirit notes

From notes: Poured clear amber with a touch of red in it and a small, thin bone-colored head. Mild aromas of vanilla and wood, but also was kind of skunky. Body is thin, with a slight oilyness. Flavor of vanilla and mild spice, with a woody note beneath that lingers in the finish. Also a touch skunky in taste, might have gotten a bad bottle.
