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.

omhper (19671) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2012
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Clear brownish amber, small head. Fruity nose with rhum and metal. Sweetish with medium body. Oak, rhum and honey grows to dominate completely. Low bitterness.

Spab (2466) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2012
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden orange colour with small slightly off-white head. Aroma is toffee, butter and light oakiness. Flavour is rather buttery with caramel, vanilla and a bit of oak though no real spice to speak of. Slightly lifeless mouthfeel. Not my favourite Innis & Gunn effort.

andrewturba (1003) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a clear copper with small white head quickly amounting to a small ring around the glass. Aromas of toffee, oak, spiced rum, dried fruits, and a definite sweetness. Flavours of toffee, spiced rum, stronger sweet spiced rum than aroma, booze. Smooth for a high alcohol beer.

luttonm (2272) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 12, 2013
.33l bottle in Belgrade, thanks to Andy (who will soon be rating here himself, he promises me). .33l clear bottle with sticky off brown-gray pour. alc-fermented ale, sweet off alc notes that are all around these beers. Nutty caramel, sweet brown body, root beer flavors.. Body is smooth and satisfying but does not sing. Caramel rich and hot finish, some sweet rum caramel. Easy to drink, could dangerously pound this all day, but it is a treat that is not so well put together with balance. Good medium of the road special ale. But off-flavors abound.

probstblueribbon (2944) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
330 ml bottle in gift pack from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a so-so light tan head. Aroma: Berry-like fruitiness, oddly sweet...like a malt liquor, unfortunately, some wood notes, a little spice, brown sugar, a bit of a savoury note, a little alcohol. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence, fairly smooth. Flav.: Lots of fruitiness, mainly berries, a touch of pepperiness, some wood and vanilla, coconut, brown sugar, hints of warm spices; dry with limited bitterness and a sweet fruity, brown sugar and wood finish.

Nothing to write home about. Thankfully, ratebeer isn’t really “home”.

tricyclist (792) - Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Sniffer pour, deep golden amber. Aroma is full sliced rum, sweet malt and caramel. Flavor follows, nice spice more than rum flavor. Caramel and toasted sugar. Little to no lacing. Not bad, overall. Not amazing
