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.

imdownthepub (10141) - 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 can’t get that much of is beer and rum unfortunately. Not really my sort of beer.

gyllenbock (4562) - 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 (5226) - 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.

Bottle. A copper colored beer, clear, with a dense light beige head. Vanilla, wood and brown sugar in the aroma. Caramel, tending towards butterscotch, Bread and toffee, with a little sweetness. Full body and a nice carbonation. Caramel and bread in the end. Decent, but too boring. 131129

TheJestersBeer (2039) - SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, somewhat dull, medium gold, with a white head that disappears quite quickly. The aroma is rather fruity, with quite a lot of spicy rum notes, along with tropical fruits, honey, malt, and of course wood and vanilla, and the usual truckload of diacetyl and butterscotch. I pick up something like burnt candle wax as well. Off-dry, on the lighter side of medium bodied, low bitterness, quite lively CO2. I’m pleasantly surpised that this one is not as cloyingly sweet as other I&G releases, the taste packs a lot of spicy notes from the rum and the wood, vanilla, diacetyl, faintly hoppy, actually there’s even something resembling malt going on here. The finish is a bit acidic, almost artificial, and leaves a feeling that I want to scrape something of my tongue. (2011-11-30)

PapaVillum (424) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2013
33 cl, købt i Netto, 6,8 %, 10. juli 2013. Meget klar mahogni-farvet øl med et tyndt bleghvidt skum på ca 1 cm, som forsvinder hurtigt. Sødlig aroma, hvor man svagt fornemmer rommen, hvis smag øllet har fra de romfafe, øllet har lagret på. Mundsmagen er lettere fyldig, men mangler noget. Smagen af rom går igennem, men øllet virker nærmest friskt og let. Man kan godt savne den samme smag i en mere fyldig og cremet konsistens. Men måske er det netop denne øls styrke... Veldisponeret kulsyre og sødlighed præger indtrykket i munden og bitterheden i denne øl er minimal. En mere cremet og fyldig konsistens, så var jeg vundet...nu er det "bare" come'si-come'sa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaske 0,33l Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket på RV124 4 Feb 14. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt luftig skum som varer en stund. Forsiktig aroma av rom. Smaken er uttynnet rom. Hint av pepper. Kunstig helhetsinntrykk.
