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.

Some cabbage notes blend with sweet and spicy rum and vanilla in the nose. Clear deep golden body is topped by a shy, white, rapidly diminishing head that leaves just a ring. The flavour is quite sweet but drinkable with the spiced rum pleasantly apparent. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Bottle. Flute. Fridge temperature.

The aroma is very much like oak aged spice rum with butterscotch and malt. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall a very solid ale.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique August 2014. Lots of spiced rum in the aroma makes you want yo get straight to drinking this beer. Full in the mouth with the rum blending in well with a mix of fruits and spices.

Bottle 33 cl, SB. Pours deep red amber with a nice beige head leaving lace. Aroma is sweet, spicy, ginger, barrel, vanilla and acidy. Flavor is sweet, floral, fruity, spicy, vanilla and bitter. Thin to medium body, a bit boring. Finishes bitter fruity.

33cl bottle. Pours a nice clear honey colour with a nicely proportioned. The nose has spiced balsalm would with a hint of stewed apple. The taste has more spiced apple, some butterscotch, some sweet wood spices and then it slightly falls away. The palate is medium bodied textured with a slightly cloying finish.

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

330ml bottle as part of the innis and gunn xmas giftpack at the lcbo. Amber pour, small white head. Typical innis aroma, butter, and caramel malts. I cant say im finding any rum or spice. The butter seems to die off and doesnt linger very much like past innis offerings. There is a quite sweet, and fruity finish, with a very light bitterness. But overall its pretty meh.
