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.

Pours deep red with a short, off-white head. Caramel malt, oak, dark rum aroma. Taste is cola, rum, pepper....toffee. Very nice spicy rum tingle. Sweet, with a very slight alcohol presence. Very good.

(bottle - 330 ml) Copper pour with an off-white head. Buttery and spiced aroma with some light caramel and a lot of rum spice. Flavor has some dry caramel and toffee malts at the start with a spicy rum and oak middle and a buttery toffee-like finish.

Butelka. Znalazłem to piwo w angielskim Tesco i nie rozumiem czemu nie zrobiłem wpisu. Z tego co pamiętam piwo było całkiem przyzwoite i świetnie zbalansowane. Posmak alkoholu faktycznie przypominał nuty palonego karmelu i drewna. Jedno z lepszych piw dostępnych w tej sieciowce.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into the Innis and Gunn tulip. The appearance was a nice hazy brown color with some light red tinges around the edges of the glass. There was a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a million. There was a moderate amount of white foamy lacing trickling down the glass. The smell had a nice toasted oaky vanilla to glaze over top of a light rum. The taste was sweet and oaky along with the rum but not in an overly boozy way. On the palate, this one sat right at medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation was pretty smooth. Overall, this was a pretty good beer worthy of coming back to.

Bottle. Golden amber with an off white foam. Aromas are toffee and marzipan with vanilla. Spicy with dark rum and lots of booze. Honey and lemon with burnt rubber. Flavours are sweet caramel and vanilla with bitter lemon and rum syrup. Nutty alcohol with spices. Industrial and a bit rough. Still one of the better Innis & Gunns.

Draft at the Yellow Springs Street Fest Craft Beer Garden, served in a plastic cup. Really weird offering; other options were a few Abita, some Crispin ciders. Not sure how they came up with this lineup. Anyway, this one pours a mostly clear, rich amber color with a small off-white head that lasts for a while after an initial fizz. Notes of toffee, brown sugar, toasted nuts, and vanilla, though it all seems a bit restrained in the flavor, which has an unfortunate watered down, slightly earthy quality that saps the energy rather than balances the beer. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation. A bit disappointing.

Reimer96 (1197) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a clear deep red with a small. All white ring. Aroma of rich caramel, creamy pudding, baked apples, pears, vanilla and oak. Taste is biscuit, caramelized fruits like pear and apple with cinnamon spice like spiced rum. Also a bit of oak and lychee on the finish from the hop bitterness. Excellent oak aged Scottish export ale.

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.
