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.

Pours a copper with good amount of head. Aroma is vanilla oak toffee rum and spices. Huge flavor. Taste is very complex, oak spices and a rum finish. Awesome beer.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2012
11.2oz bottle into an Innis and Gunn tulip. Pours a clear ruby/copper with a half finger white head that quickly fades into a ring around the side of the glass. Nothing in the way of lacing. Aroma has lots of butterscotch along with wood and toffee. A little bit of orange citrus is also present in the background. The flavor really has quite a bit going on. There is overwhelming butterscotch up front but the fades rather quickly yielding numerous other flavors. Wood is there along with vanilla and a bit of a citric tartness. Orange is what comes to mind along with some spice. You can definitely tell this was aged on spice rum chips. Overall, a decent beer that is pretty much par for the course when it comes to Innis & Gunn. It might not blow you away but it is very solid. I would recommend picking this up if you were to come across it.

Bottle from King&Godfree. Nice malty beer, very tasty. Aromas of biscuit, caramel, cola, with hints of liquorice and tropical fruit. Taste is sweet, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Dark amber, frothy head.

puboflyons (2387) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 13, 2012
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. The color is a handsome looking medium amber-red with little to no head. The aroma is clean caramel malts, rum, jerky spice, and sugar in the raw. The body is smooth and creamy and fairly bold. The taste begins sweet but then there is an assertive bitterness which is probably enhanced by the rum-aging. A very nice brew.

Svesse (6757) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2012
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of oak wood, honey, dried fruit, banana, coconut, rum, molasses, orange and spices. Fruity taste with dried fruit, honey, oak wood, banana, orange, toffee, a touch of chocolate and a sweet, spicy finish with a touch of rum and vanilla. Medium body, fairly sweet (but not going too far). I expected something sweet and cloying, but this was quite balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

The aroma is very much like oak aged spice rum with butterscotch and malt. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a very solid ale.

I love the aroma, it reminds me of vanilla frosting. the beer is smooth yet has a strong flavor. its not all malts and no hop bitterness. its perfect for an English style ale.

omhper (20606) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2012
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear brownish amber, small head. Fruity nose with rhum and metal. Sweetish with medium body. Oak, rhum and honey grows to dominate completely. Low bitterness.

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Amber color, with small head. Light aroma of rum. Simple flavor, some caramel and vegetables, with a caramellish touch of rum, and very light vanilla; ordinary bitterness. Not bad, but unexciting.

Boutip (5031) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep clear light amber color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of cereal with some light notes of rum. Taste is also a mix between some cereal with light sweet notes and some light rum notes. Body is about average with some good carbonation. This one works out better then the previous barrel-aged beer they have done.
