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.

A sweetish though not cloying ale. A moderate richness in the finish from an aged anejo black rum cask. Light in the spice department its mostly the vanilla. Drinkable, significant oak mid sip.

Sigmund (5987) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2015
330 ml clear bottle in cardboard box, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. BB date Sept. 2013. ABV is 7.4%. Cognac colour, slightly hazy. Small off-white head. Fairly nice sweetish aroma of spiced rum and oak, some vanilla. Nice medium sweet flavour, spiced rum, spiced stewed fruits, moderate oak and vanilla. Minimal hops, as in all Innis & Gunn beers, but here the spiciness to some degree compensates for the lack of hops. Probably the best I & G variety I’ve had so far

Decent though sweet aroma. Dark golden amber with only medium carbonation - very thin off White head . Again sweet taste of toffee. Good palate. Overall reasonable tasting but probably too sweet for me.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
7.4% ABV: 330ml bottle. BBD Sep 15, poured into a Gordon badged thistle shaped glass at home on 6th Mar 15 during a Scottish tasting evening I had with myself. Looked lovely, clear toffee apple red/amber with a creamy head in colour and texture. Caramel and toffee nose, very malty in all aspects. I wanted to find Rum and spices but failed in the aroma. However both Rum and spices did appear in the taste, the flavour was a bit too sweet though, even for my sweet tooth, vanilla notes arriving mid-sip and adding to the sweetness, just when a hop bitterness might have calmed down the whole brew and helped to balance out the sweetness. I actually liked it a lot more than most beers I have had from these guys.

A beer I’d gladly go back to time and time again. Flawless in flavour and fizz. It’s not one I’d tire of.

Typical Innis & Gunn aroma, toffee, oak, vanilla. getting very slight spiced rum notes. Taste is very similar, toffee being the main player, buttery, creme brûlée, not much rum finish for me. Got a sweet tooth though so its fine with me

dandeman (707) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
We can recognize the Innis & Gunn signature all over this beer: caramel and toffee...only. And that’s the problem with this brewery; same old candy beer all the time. Olfactif: Crème brulée dominante, toffee et vanille. Olfactif très agréable mais unidimensionnel. Peut-être une légère touche herbacée à la fin. Visuel: Cuivrée, claire, avec une mousse forcée qui fui rapidement. Gustatif: Le caramel (toffee, crème brulée) est toujours dominant, mais il laisse se développer quelques notes de rhum brun avec un léger boisé; le tout accompagné d’une chaleur enveloppante. On reconnait toujours la même signature sucrée et caramélisée de cette brasserie. En bouche, c’est liquoreux, mais unidimensionnel. Toujours la même bière bonbon.

Pours a brown colour. Taste is sweet and malty, some candy. A fairly typical Innis and Gunn beer
