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.

Svesse (6234) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2012
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of oak wood, honey, dried fruit, banana, coconut, rum, molasses, orange and spices. Fruity taste with dried fruit, honey, oak wood, banana, orange, toffee, a touch of chocolate and a sweet, spicy finish with a touch of rum and vanilla. Medium body, fairly sweet (but not going too far). I expected something sweet and cloying, but this was quite balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

larsniclas (5699) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2011
Bottled from Systembolaget. Deep holden. Small white head. Oaky aroma and flavour. Medium bitterness. Maybe some sugar-cane, but not much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gyllenbock (4953) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a minimal head. Quite a lot of Rum in both the aroma and taste. Also dried fruit, oak and toffee. Better than expected but thin and with a short aftertaste. Not a refreshing beer but it was drinkable.

Boutip (4828) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep clear light amber color ale with a medium size white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of cereal with some light notes of rum. Taste is also a mix between some cereal with light sweet notes and some light rum notes. Body is about average with some good carbonation. This one works out better then the previous barrel-aged beer they have done.
