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.

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.

Metalchopz (2485) - 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).

cervmagpt (256) - PORTUGAL - NOV 7, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 9E adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch L4169 10:01. AROMA: semi-sweet caramelized aromas, with some roasted notes and aged rum. no hop aromas and very faint esters. some spiciness. APPEARANCE: dark amber / Brown and translucid. thin slight ivory head with low retention. TASTE: hints of aged rum as some roasted notes and sweet caramelized malt. medium-low bitterness with a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with low carbonation. OVERALL: an interesting barrel aged scotch ale but nothing more.

330ml bottle as part of the innis and gunn xmas giftpack at the lcbo. Amber pour, small white head. Typical innis aroma, butter, and caramel malts. I cant say im finding any rum or spice. The butter seems to die off and doesnt linger very much like past innis offerings. There is a quite sweet, and fruity finish, with a very light bitterness. But overall its pretty meh.

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.

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.
