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.

Poured great, nice color, lacing and head. However don’t judge a book by it’s cover. After 2 sips of this monkey piss I poured the rest down the sink. Way to alcohol infused. This is only the second beer I could not finish. I would take a michelob ULTRA over this crap anyday!

Decent though sweet aroma. Dark golden amber with only medium carbonation - very thin off White head . Again sweet taste of toffee. Good palate. Overall reasonable tasting but probably too sweet for me.

A bottle 6,8%. "Innis & Gunn Rum finish". Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet and a bit spicy with tiny alcohol finish. Very good beer.

BlackHaddock (4692) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
7.4% ABV: 330ml bottle. BBD Sep 15, poured into a Gordon badged thistle shaped glass at home on 6th Mar 15 during a Scottish tasting evening I had with myself. Looked lovely, clear toffee apple red/amber with a creamy head in colour and texture. Caramel and toffee nose, very malty in all aspects. I wanted to find Rum and spices but failed in the aroma. However both Rum and spices did appear in the taste, the flavour was a bit too sweet though, even for my sweet tooth, vanilla notes arriving mid-sip and adding to the sweetness, just when a hop bitterness might have calmed down the whole brew and helped to balance out the sweetness. I actually liked it a lot more than most beers I have had from these guys.

A beer I’d gladly go back to time and time again. Flawless in flavour and fizz. It’s not one I’d tire of.

Firefly54 (242) - - DEC 27, 2014
Typical Innis & Gunn aroma, toffee, oak, vanilla. getting very slight spiced rum notes. Taste is very similar, toffee being the main player, buttery, creme brûlée, not much rum finish for me. Got a sweet tooth though so its fine with me

dandeman (619) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
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 (1222) - 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 (5018) - 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.
