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.

Aroma has hints of cereal malt with a strong sweet woody backbone. Appearance is an awesome clear amber with light carbonation bubbles. No real head, though small carbonation bubbles come up to the surface frequently. I’m actually not a fan of the taste compared to the non-spiced rum cask I&G. Taste is a medium sweetness balanced with medium/heavy bitterness. Can definitely tell the spiced rum character, and it’s nice, but not amazing. Palate has a medium body, texture feels thin and oily. Carbonation is fizzy, and there is an long bitter/astringent finish. Overall, I LOVE the idea of this beer, and I’m a big fan of their normal rum cask version, but the taste just wasn’t what I was hoping for. I think personally it need much more sweetness to it.

We can recognize the Innis & Gunn signature all over this beer: caramel and toffee...only. And that’s the problem with this brewery; same old candy beer all the time. Olfactif: Crème brulée dominante, toffee et vanille. Olfactif très agréable mais unidimensionnel. Peut-être une légère touche herbacée à la fin. Visuel: Cuivrée, claire, avec une mousse forcée qui fui rapidement. Gustatif: Le caramel (toffee, crème brulée) est toujours dominant, mais il laisse se développer quelques notes de rhum brun avec un léger boisé; le tout accompagné d’une chaleur enveloppante. On reconnait toujours la même signature sucrée et caramélisée de cette brasserie. En bouche, c’est liquoreux, mais unidimensionnel. Toujours la même bière bonbon.

Pours a brown colour. Taste is sweet and malty, some candy. A fairly typical Innis and Gunn beer

spacecube (972) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
330ml in box, pours clear amber with a small white head, toffee caramel malt, oaky notes and rum, sticky molasses, balaned tidily with a long bitter finish with rum in the aftertaste. Lively carbonated with a light body, thin slighly creamy texture and a crisp finish. Good.

berkshirejohn (4677) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
33cl bottle from Aldi, Bracknell. ABV 7.4% A bright golden amber colour with a rapidlly dissipating head and lots of carbonation; rather subdued aroma - some vanilla wood but little else; the taste is a good balance of rum, light spice and vanilla from the wood; the finish has a lingering toasty sweetness. Rather pleasant and well-balanced.

weordie (104) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Pours a dark brown but with very little, short lived head. Aroma of spiced rum and vanilla. Quite a lot of carbonation. Taste is strong of spiced rum and coke.

Flaske. Ravfarvet, klar, medium, boblende off-white skum med kort holdbarhed. Træ, acetone, rom, karamel, figner. Sød, maltet, woody, krydret - a la mørk røget kardemomme, allehånde, nelliker. I like ’dis.
