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.

Clear dark brown with lasting light brown foam head. Aroma is rum dominated with some sweet fruit notes. Taste is quite sweet, some fruits, some caramel, but mostly rum. Short aftertaste. (Farstanäs 201307) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a foamy head. No lacing is found. The nose is quite sweet with loads of toffee, and balanced by nuts, wood, rum alcohol, flowers and mild vanilla. Thankfully, the taste is not as sweet. Soft caramel malt at first, grainy in the middle and a little hop comes out in the finish. The vanilla-oak slightly comes out in the aftertaste. Always nice to see a new experiment from Innis & Gunn, but this one just misses the boat a bit (pun intended).

Bottle. One of the better beers I’ve tried by Innis and Gunn. Aroma of cinnamon, tropical fruit, cherries, vanilla. Clear reddish brown colour. Taste is sweet rum, bitter finish. Creamy texture.

Ontbeertaster (2348) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle, pour is a clear amber, the flavour is very strong in terms of woodiness, it doesnt have much in the way of a rum flavour. But it is nice and enjoyable.

puboflyons (2344) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 13, 2012
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. The color is a handsome looking medium amber-red with little to no head. The aroma is clean caramel malts, rum, jerky spice, and sugar in the raw. The body is smooth and creamy and fairly bold. The taste begins sweet but then there is an assertive bitterness which is probably enhanced by the rum-aging. A very nice brew.

Gethinbeer (2250) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2012
Clear copper colour with no head. Lively carbonation. Strong malt character. Carmel flavour with a big influence of spiced rum and vanilla. Tangy finish.

TheJestersBeer (2188) - SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, somewhat dull, medium gold, with a white head that disappears quite quickly. The aroma is rather fruity, with quite a lot of spicy rum notes, along with tropical fruits, honey, malt, and of course wood and vanilla, and the usual truckload of diacetyl and butterscotch. I pick up something like burnt candle wax as well. Off-dry, on the lighter side of medium bodied, low bitterness, quite lively CO2. I’m pleasantly surpised that this one is not as cloyingly sweet as other I&G releases, the taste packs a lot of spicy notes from the rum and the wood, vanilla, diacetyl, faintly hoppy, actually there’s even something resembling malt going on here. The finish is a bit acidic, almost artificial, and leaves a feeling that I want to scrape something of my tongue. (2011-11-30)

Davros (2168) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2013
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows lots of toffee and butterscotch along with vanilla and soft spiced apple. Very sweet-smelling. Equally sweet flavours. Maybe too sweet. More butter, butterscotch and toffee. Incredibly sweet. Could use a lot more carbonation.
