3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
