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.

(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of oak wood, honey, dried fruit, banana, coconut, rum, molasses, orange and spices. Fruity taste with dried fruit, honey, oak wood, banana, orange, toffee, a touch of chocolate and a sweet, spicy finish with a touch of rum and vanilla. Medium body, fairly sweet (but not going too far). I expected something sweet and cloying, but this was quite balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Liquor Store at the Airport in Vancouver, BC on 10/22/2012. Colour: Dark brown with thin white lacing. Nose: Definitive oak with a nice vanilla backdrop. Sea salt air. Spice is present but not heavy. Swirling brings out cherries. Taste: Medium-high sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Strong presence of icing sugar among a bed of spices. Floral and a bit poofy. Not really my bag.

Ambré. Boisé. Caramel. Toffee. Vanille. Chêne. Rhum. Toute en subtilité. Beau arôme, mais mince.

Clear amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Mild minerally carbonation. Fresh malt cream with a trace of wood. Not really getting much rum. Mild citrus. It’s inoffensive but overall a bit of a disappointment.

vanvenlo (1464) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2013
Slowbeer bottle (1-Oct-13) Lovely sweet woody caramel molasses spice aroma. Nice red orange colour, poor head and suds lacing. Sweet caramel malt rum vanilla spice flavour but a bit simple. Rum spice mouth warming finish and light tangy sweet vanilla aftertaste that dies away quickly.

Idiosynkrasie (5013) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear copper colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Aroma has toffee and oak notes, a touch of vanilla. Taste is moderately sweet malty, notes of toffee, oak, a touch of vanilla, a slightly biting mixture of pepper and bitter hop.

Pretty beer. Plenty of spice and vanilla and hints albeit comes across as an additive rather than a fully integrated flavour. Still very pleasant drinking.

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

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
330ml bottle. Poured a deep red amber with very little head. Lively carbonation with sticky sides. Aroma is light, sweet fruit with some wood and vanilla. Taste is very light spice with a medium rum sweetness and the usual I&G woodsy malt, but lighter. Palate was, once again, lighter than I expected. Overall, I liked the Winter Beer better from this year’s gift pack.
