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.

StoutHead (646) - DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear light red/brown color, with noisy carbonation and a white head that is gone in no time. Aroma of rum, caramel, spices and oak. Taste of malt, caramel, nuts, fruits and rum. Some rum alcohol in the finish. Very sweet with a nice crispy feel and light but good mouthfeel.

luttonm (2222) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 12, 2013
.33l bottle in Belgrade, thanks to Andy (who will soon be rating here himself, he promises me). .33l clear bottle with sticky off brown-gray pour. alc-fermented ale, sweet off alc notes that are all around these beers. Nutty caramel, sweet brown body, root beer flavors.. Body is smooth and satisfying but does not sing. Caramel rich and hot finish, some sweet rum caramel. Easy to drink, could dangerously pound this all day, but it is a treat that is not so well put together with balance. Good medium of the road special ale. But off-flavors abound.

jonnyguns (913) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from liquor barons Carlisle. Pours a light brown with very little head. Aromas of spice, rum, toffee, vanilla and some oak. Taste is refreshing with notes of caramel, vanilla, spices and the rum. I get a touch of banana in there somewhere too. Pretty refreshing beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl, 2012 edition) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly malty aroma with notes of coconut, anise, vanilla and toffee, accompanied by a delicately fruity touch of ripe pineapples. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Slightly buttery malty base with oaky accents with hints of vanilla and toffee; moderately sweet malty finish, not as sticky as expected with a whiff of alcohol. Not bad, quite rounded. 13.IV.13

HoppyBudgie (692) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from kvadrat. Golden color with off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel aroma with hints of vanilla. Fruity, malty, spicey and some lactose caramel in there but not so mutch as the plain Innis and gun has. Fruity finish

ClubGonzo (4030) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear deep amber body with a thick, creamy off-white head, looking very nice indeed. Nose is strong vanilla and oak tones with caramel malts and caramel pudding (loads of it here), booze, rum and hints of pepper, butterscotch and sugar. Sweet as hell, but still kind of tantalizing. Taste is sweet vanilla and butterscotch, with caramel pudding, rum and sugary grains in the back. Hints of booze and wood in the finish. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A bit of a vanilla-and-rum overdose, but since I do have a sweet tooth Iím willing to let some of the madness slide. Nevertheless, itís a bit too much in the end but definitely a taste-packing brew.
