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.

In bottle; very interesting beer ... aroma of rum and spice for sure with hints of vanilla and oak. Taste was medium bodied with the sweetness at the beginning and the rum/oak notes at the end. Overall an OK beer, but Innis and Gunn make better options.

MalcolmTucker (672) - SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark copper with a thin white head. Sweet caramel and mild spice aroma. More of the same in the flavour with the trademark I&G vanilla and oak. Thin body and medium carbonation. Average - just a slight variation on an already well used theme.

Clear copper colour with no head. Lively carbonation. Strong malt character. Carmel flavour with a big influence of spiced rum and vanilla. Tangy finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2012
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of lemons, straw, and hay. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, and caramel, leading to a dry finish. Thanks Jürgen for sharing.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
Amber color, with small head. Light aroma of rum. Simple flavor, some caramel and vegetables, with a caramellish touch of rum, and very light vanilla; ordinary bitterness. Not bad, but unexciting.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours amber with light coloured thin dissipating head. Aroma is a bit of spice, oak. Flavour is caramel, spice, and vanilla, interesting to try but the actual beer is kind of bland.

mile (2738) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Amber, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light dark fruitiness - vinous notes, light spiciness - rum, light vanilla/oak, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish, some caramel, some dark fruitiness, light vanilla, some alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, faint caramel, and faint fruitiness and light vanilla, alcohol. OK aroma, but finish almost totally lacks fruitiness - too much alcohol in the finish. Aroma/flavor not in balance.
