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.

Bottle, in a box. Pours a lovely crystal clear reddish amber with a fading head. Nose is pungent! Instantly pick up that rum, but it’s not overpowering. There’s a lot of vanilla, oak and toffee in there too. In the taste, there’s an instant coconut hit and more vanilla and toffee. A little on the sweet side, due to the rum I think. Finish is warming, spicy and vanilla. Another I&G cracker. They always feel a little special when I drink them.

RD400F (184) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle to trappist glass. Appearance is a transparent reddish amber with a small rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, butterscotch, slight citrus sour, slight skunk, wood, licorice...this is fairly complex. Taste is coffee, vanilla, butterscotch, oak and even some hop bitterness though faint. Unsurprisingly there are notes of rum as well. Palate is smooth, well balanced, co2 low, drinks quite nice. Overall a very nice beer from I&G, their stuff is usually good but they should consider ditching the clear bottles.

Lagerboy (1238) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
Clear dark copper, thin tan head. Spicy, fruity rum aroma. Sweet malty, toffee, vanilla, spiced rum flavors. Buttery and silky, totally delicious, but somewhat manufactured. Bet you can drink just one! LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

rangerred (929) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2012
11.2oz bottle into an Innis and Gunn tulip. Pours a clear ruby/copper with a half finger white head that quickly fades into a ring around the side of the glass. Nothing in the way of lacing. Aroma has lots of butterscotch along with wood and toffee. A little bit of orange citrus is also present in the background. The flavor really has quite a bit going on. There is overwhelming butterscotch up front but the fades rather quickly yielding numerous other flavors. Wood is there along with vanilla and a bit of a citric tartness. Orange is what comes to mind along with some spice. You can definitely tell this was aged on spice rum chips. Overall, a decent beer that is pretty much par for the course when it comes to Innis & Gunn. It might not blow you away but it is very solid. I would recommend picking this up if you were to come across it.

legrosjf (45) - CANADA - JAN 22, 2013
Liquide cuivré, clair et sans trop d’effervescence. Arôme du Spiced rhum présent mais pas agressant. Manque le caractère boisé d’une oak aged. Sucre résiduel correspondant à une Scotch Ale. Plaisante.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
330 mL. 6.9%. Pours a ruby amber brown colour with a tan foam that bubbles away slowly. Way lighter in colour and body than Rum Cask. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, rum, allspice and toffee. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped and rich in roast malt flavour. Finish is quite sweet, honey, toffee, and that oaky tinge as you swallow. Delicious.

Nische (732) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2013
Pours a copper with good amount of head. Aroma is vanilla oak toffee rum and spices. Huge flavor of rum.

bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours from the bottle a rich orange with thick foamy head that quicly dissipates, leaving not even a hint of lacing. Aroma is heavy on caramel, oak and vanilla with a little rum, but no noticable spice. Medium body with lively carbonation. Smooth and slightly syrupy with a drier finish. Taste is sweet toffee at first, becoming oaky in the middle and finishing off with rum and spice notes. Overall, pretty good, but a tad sweet and syrupy for my taste.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle, pour is a clear amber, the flavour is very strong in terms of woodiness, it doesnt have much in the way of a rum flavour. But it is nice and enjoyable.

Flaske. Ravfarvet, klar, medium, boblende off-white skum med kort holdbarhed. Træ, acetone, rom, karamel, figner. Sød, maltet, woody, krydret - a la mørk røget kardemomme, allehånde, nelliker. I like ’dis.
