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.

Foffern (1150) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is golden amber with a medium light beige head. Pretty carbonated. Aroma with lots of caramel, vanilla bean, oak, brown sugar, rum and tequila. The flavour is much alike but is more sweet with still a lot of caramel, oak and fudge. A touch of cinnamon. Has a slick and sticky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Sweet and balanced strong English ale with a nice touch of rum.

GregClow (2847) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle. Clear red-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of rum, coconut, vanilla, demerara sugar, a hint of oak. Medium bodied, clean on the palate. Flavour follows the aroma pretty closely, with all of the same elements, along with a slight tingle of cinnamon & nutmeg. Finish is quite long, with a nice dry woodiness, and a rum & coke booziness that wraps things up nicely.

Amber, minimal head. Aroma of vanilla rum like beer. Taste is like a Malibu rum mixed with beer. Not like a spiced rum. Sweeter than I would like. When will it end with Innis and Gunn aging in casks? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.33l clear bottle wrapped in a paper box. Have to admit that it’s some time since I’ve had a Innis & Gunn beer now, but it looks like it should. Whisky colored and crystal clear in the glass with a small quickly islandy off-white top. I like the sweet caramelly nose with peppery and spicy tones. A little bit of butter and butterscotch also wrapped in between here. Surprisingly smooth in the mouth with a light oily almost creamy mouthfeel wrapped in a average small bubbly carbonation level. It has that well known sweetness that all their beer has, in addition to this a peppery spicy and woody flavor. I’m actually liking what I’m tasting. Not cloying at all and there is a well balanced little hint of alcohol all the way that makes it a bit more interesting. I’m no big rum drinker, but I think I’m tasting the rum as well and it has a vanilla theme all the way through. Not bad at all. 11.07.2013

Bottle. One of the better beers I’ve tried by Innis and Gunn. Aroma of cinnamon, tropical fruit, cherries, vanilla. Clear reddish brown colour. Taste is sweet rum, bitter finish. Creamy texture.
