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. 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 I’m willing to let some of the madness slide. Nevertheless, it’s a bit too much in the end but definitely a taste-packing brew.

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.

mkel07 (4411) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2014
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.

nick76 (4315) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2012
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.

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.

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.
