COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This limited bottling of Innis & Gunn has been finished over oak infused with Caribbean Spiced Rum. The result is absolutely delicious, bursting with the flavours of Caribbean spices along with our signature notes of vanilla, toffee and oak.

BenH (2239) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2012
From a bottle. Pours golden orange with short lasting white head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and light spice, some vegetal hops. Tastes rank, lots of vanilla, oak, toffee, very unbalanced. Sweet and cloying, doesn’t finish well. Pretty shocking stuff, not into this at all

Clear copper colour with no head. Lively carbonation. Strong malt character. Carmel flavour with a big influence of spiced rum and vanilla. Tangy finish.

MalcolmTucker (727) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark copper with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and mild spice aroma. More of the same in the flavour with the trademark I&G vanilla and oak. Thin body and medium carbonation. Average - just a slight variation on an already well used theme.

larsniclas (5586) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2011
Bottled from Systembolaget. Deep holden. Small white head. Oaky aroma and flavour. Medium bitterness. Maybe some sugar-cane, but not much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

darrennelson12 (358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
In bottle; very interesting beer ... aroma of rum and spice for sure with hints of vanilla and oak. Taste was medium bodied with the sweetness at the beginning and the rum/oak notes at the end. Overall an OK beer, but Innis and Gunn make better options.

Lagerboy (1209) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
Clear dark copper, thin tan head. Spicy, fruity rum aroma. Sweet malty, toffee, vanilla, spiced rum flavors. Buttery and silky, totally delicious, but somewhat manufactured. Bet you can drink just one! LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
