2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head which settles quickly leaving only traces of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some oak and a trace of rum and mild spice. Taste is a caramel sweetness with traces of oak, rum and spice with a light earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium body and light carbonation. This is an interesting ale which was enjoyable enough, but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l clear bottle wrapped in a paper box. Have to admit that itís some time since Iíve had a Innis & Gunn beer now, but it looks like it should. Whisky colored and crystal clear in the glass with a small quickly islandy off-white top. I like the sweet caramelly nose with peppery and spicy tones. A little bit of butter and butterscotch also wrapped in between here. Surprisingly smooth in the mouth with a light oily almost creamy mouthfeel wrapped in a average small bubbly carbonation level. It has that well known sweetness that all their beer has, in addition to this a peppery spicy and woody flavor. Iím actually liking what Iím tasting. Not cloying at all and there is a well balanced little hint of alcohol all the way that makes it a bit more interesting. Iím no big rum drinker, but I think Iím tasting the rum as well and it has a vanilla theme all the way through. Not bad at all. 11.07.2013

I love the aroma, it reminds me of vanilla frosting. the beer is smooth yet has a strong flavor. its not all malts and no hop bitterness. its perfect for an English style ale.
