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.

Another Innis & gunn beer with standard oaky character. Decent amber, nice lasting head. Some spice in the taste. Like has been stated before, those extra notes seem like add-ins and not really coherent. Feel is medium, not great.

Pretty beer. Plenty of spice and vanilla and hints albeit comes across as an additive rather than a fully integrated flavour. Still very pleasant drinking.

Amber, minimal head. Aroma of vanilla rum like beer. Taste is like a Malibu rum mixed with beer. Not like a spiced rum. Sweeter than I would like. When will it end with Innis and Gunn aging in casks? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
bottle. Poured clear copper with a receding foamy beige head. Woody caramel aroma. Medium body, tight carbonation, tart medium dry finish. Caramel malt flavour, fruity citrus notes with an oaky touch, peppery finish but not too spicy.

Rune (7349) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2013
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Bubbly off-white head that stayed well and left fragile lacing behind. Bright amber coloured body. Oak vanilla on the nose, notes of nuts and rum as well. Vanilla ice cream taste alongside hints of ripe fruit and wood, spiced with cinnamon. Herbal hops to the aftertaste, bittersweet. Soft carbonated. Surprisingly easy to drink. I like drinking a bottle of the Innis & Gunn’s beers now and then (at home in Tromsø, 28.09.2013).

Idiosynkrasie (3235) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear copper colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Aroma has toffee and oak notes, a touch of vanilla. Taste is moderately sweet malty, notes of toffee, oak, a touch of vanilla, a slightly biting mixture of pepper and bitter hop.

Bottle to trappist glass. Appearance is a transparent reddish amber with a small rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, butterscotch, slight citrus sour, slight skunk, wood, licorice...this is fairly complex. Taste is coffee, vanilla, butterscotch, oak and even some hop bitterness though faint. Unsurprisingly there are notes of rum as well. Palate is smooth, well balanced, co2 low, drinks quite nice. Overall a very nice beer from I&G, their stuff is usually good but they should consider ditching the clear bottles.
