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.

330ml bottle. As with all I&G beers, this one looks stunningly appetizing in its clear bottle - red-orange elixir (Lovibond 8) beckoning me to pour it into my I&G glass. I'm weak, so I pour it smoothly to produce an adequate but quickly dissipating white head. Leaves an effervescent lacing. Aromas of cotton candy and vanilla waft up. Much nicer smell than most Innis & Gunns. I don't really taste the 'spiced rum' but what I do taste is fantastic: maltiness balanced with oaky and smoky notes. Vanilla and toffee, obviously. Sweeter than other I&G offerings but I thinkers balanced as well. One of their better beers! Worth getting again!

330ml bottle - A deep red amber with very little head. Aroma is light, sweet fruit with some wood and vanilla. Taste is very light spice with a medium rum sweetness and a woody malt touch. As usual with Innis and Gun, a syrupy palate, and sweetness at the end. Not too bad, but not my favourite I&G by any stretch of the imagination.

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.

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 (1656) - 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 (989) - 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 (46) - 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 (1373) - 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.

Ontbeertaster (2361) - 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.
