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.

Bottle, in a box. Pours a lovely crystal clear reddish amber with a fading head. Nose is pungent! Instantly pick up that rum, but it’s not overpowering. There’s a lot of vanilla, oak and toffee in there too. In the taste, there’s an instant coconut hit and more vanilla and toffee. A little on the sweet side, due to the rum I think. Finish is warming, spicy and vanilla. Another I&G cracker. They always feel a little special when I drink them.

330ml bottle - A deep red amber with very little head. Aroma is light, sweet fruit with some wood and vanilla. Taste is very light spice with a medium rum sweetness and a woody malt touch. As usual with Innis and Gun, a syrupy palate, and sweetness at the end. Not too bad, but not my favourite I&G by any stretch of the imagination.

Liquide cuivré, clair et sans trop d’effervescence. Arôme du Spiced rhum présent mais pas agressant. Manque le caractère boisé d’une oak aged. Sucre résiduel correspondant à une Scotch Ale. Plaisante.

hstreet (71) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Poured great, nice color, lacing and head. However don’t judge a book by it’s cover. After 2 sips of this monkey piss I poured the rest down the sink. Way to alcohol infused. This is only the second beer I could not finish. I would take a michelob ULTRA over this crap anyday!

andrewturba (1036) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a clear copper with small white head quickly amounting to a small ring around the glass. Aromas of toffee, oak, spiced rum, dried fruits, and a definite sweetness. Flavours of toffee, spiced rum, stronger sweet spiced rum than aroma, booze. Smooth for a high alcohol beer.

rosenbergh (7239) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2012
330 ml bottle. 12124. BB May 2013. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland. Clear dark mahogany colour with tiny off-white head. Sweet malt, molasses, dark dried fruits, brown sugar and mild alcohol (maybe rum) in aroma. Flavour is rather nice with alcohol, dark fried fruits, molasses, sweet malt and woody dryness. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SoberDave (145) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours a nice golden colour but no head to speak of. Starts off with a great spicy rum taste combined with hops but dissipates too early, and wish it was stronger.

Studentofbrrs (90) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
The fact that it was brewed in rum infused oak barrels is evident in both aroma and taste. It goes down smooth and has no lingering aftertaste

The beer pours a red-hued gold colour with a short-lived head which disappears in seconds. Aroma is caramel, rum, wood, and light fruits. No spiciness that I can discern. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is wood, caramel, some rum, and some metallic notes. Nothing outstanding!

Very smooth beer. I don’t taste the rum flavor, but there is hint of toffee.
