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.

Spab (2241) - 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.

probstblueribbon (2853) - 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 isnít really ďhomeĒ.

tricyclist (657) - 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

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2013
Some cabbage notes blend with sweet and spicy rum and vanilla in the nose. Clear deep golden body is topped by a shy, white, rapidly diminishing head that leaves just a ring. The flavour is quite sweet but drinkable with the spiced rum pleasantly apparent. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Bottle. Flute. Fridge temperature.

shorlin (635) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Another Innis & gunn beer with standard oaky character. Decent amber, nice lasting head. Some spice in the taste. Like has been stated before, those extra notes seem like add-ins and not really coherent. Feel is medium, not great.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Bottled 330ml from Tesco in Banbury. Burnished gold with no head. Sweet, sugary, syrupy start to this, vanilla and milky toffee notes. There is a slight spiced apple flavour that comes through. What I canít get that much of is beer and rum unfortunately. Not really my sort of beer.

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber with a minimal head. Quite a lot of Rum in both the aroma and taste. Also dried fruit, oak and toffee. Better than expected but thin and with a short aftertaste. Not a refreshing beer but it was drinkable.

gunnar (5097) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours clear dark amber with a small fast disappearing head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, vanilla and rum. Taste is sweet, malty with some wood and rum at the finish. Not a winner here.
