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.

Slowbeer bottle (1-Oct-13) Lovely sweet woody caramel molasses spice aroma. Nice red orange colour, poor head and suds lacing. Sweet caramel malt rum vanilla spice flavour but a bit simple. Rum spice mouth warming finish and light tangy sweet vanilla aftertaste that dies away quickly.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
330 mL. 6.9%. Pours a ruby amber brown colour with a tan foam that bubbles away slowly. Way lighter in colour and body than Rum Cask. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, rum, allspice and toffee. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped and rich in roast malt flavour. Finish is quite sweet, honey, toffee, and that oaky tinge as you swallow. Delicious.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
Some cabbage notes blend with sweet and spicy rum and vanilla in the nose. Clear deep golden body is topped by a shy, white, rapidly diminishing head that leaves just a ring. The flavour is quite sweet but drinkable with the spiced rum pleasantly apparent. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Bottle. Flute. Fridge temperature.

gunnar (4867) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear dark amber with a small fast disappearing head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, vanilla and rum. Taste is sweet, malty with some wood and rum at the finish. Not a winner here.

JRHBrew (366) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Spice and toffee on the nose. A bit thin. Perhaps a bit dry. Excelled balance of spice bitter booze and sweet.

chris__hartley (274) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
It pours copper with hay-coloured highlights; the head is off-white and soapy. The aroma has notes of: caramel, popcorn, sweet grains, and vanilla. The taste is medium sweet that finishes light dry; there are notes of: popcorn, toffee, faint cinnamon, and slight molasses. The palate is medium-light bodied, has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, just another Innis/Gunn product with very minor variants to the original (dismal).
