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.

Foffern (1343) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is golden amber with a medium light beige head. Pretty carbonated. Aroma with lots of caramel, vanilla bean, oak, brown sugar, rum and tequila. The flavour is much alike but is more sweet with still a lot of caramel, oak and fudge. A touch of cinnamon. Has a slick and sticky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Sweet and balanced strong English ale with a nice touch of rum.

Clear dark brown with lasting light brown foam head. Aroma is rum dominated with some sweet fruit notes. Taste is quite sweet, some fruits, some caramel, but mostly rum. Short aftertaste. (Farstanäs 201307) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PapaVillum (562) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2013
33 cl, købt i Netto, 6,8 %, 10. juli 2013. Meget klar mahogni-farvet øl med et tyndt bleghvidt skum på ca 1 cm, som forsvinder hurtigt. Sødlig aroma, hvor man svagt fornemmer rommen, hvis smag øllet har fra de romfafe, øllet har lagret på. Mundsmagen er lettere fyldig, men mangler noget. Smagen af rom går igennem, men øllet virker nærmest friskt og let. Man kan godt savne den samme smag i en mere fyldig og cremet konsistens. Men måske er det netop denne øls styrke... Veldisponeret kulsyre og sødlighed præger indtrykket i munden og bitterheden i denne øl er minimal. En mere cremet og fyldig konsistens, så var jeg vundet...nu er det "bare" come'si-come'sa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
2013-06-27. Crisp golden amber, nice foamy off white head fades. 3++ Aroma starts with a toffee like sweetness, light alcohol, reminds me a bit of Rum Butter Lifesavers actually. Flavour is similarly sweet up front. Drier malt towards the end, toasty sort of biscuity character to it. Smooth average plus bodied palate, light carbonation. Much better than expected! It has cellared for a few months. I might have had it sooner if I knew it was this good! ;) Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

StueyD (1305) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
A mid amber orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A distinctly ’Innis & Gunn’ aroma, woody, vanilla, buttery and sweet caramel, plus a hint of alcoholic Rum. Full mouthfeel. A full-bodied sweet taste, all the usual elements of wood, vanilla, and caramel, then a slightly tart alcohol flavour, suggesting the Rum. The finish is a tad dry as the woody flavours come to the fore.

nilsas (1883) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
En fantastisk fin aroma med lite snev av karamell. En nydelig nøttebrun gyllen farge. En god rund smak av karamell, eik, rom m.m. ET nydelig øl.som for en hver pris ikke må serveres kaldt.
