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.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2012
Bottled@SBWF2012. Amber to pale copper colour with a small creamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, toffee, mild spices, some sugary and sweet notes along with mild vanilla. Flavour is fudge/caramel/toffee with some sugary and a bit herbal earthy notes. Quite sweetish finish with mild vanilla as well.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
Nov 14, 2012. 330ml bottle pours rich amber colour with small foamy head that fades quickly to ring and leaves no lacing. Aroma is fantastic! Sweet caramel malt with nuts and rum, hints of vanilla and floral. Expected the flavour to be stronger based on aroma but quite subdued. Not much spice but rich rum malt with typical Innis vanilla and toffee flavour. Palate was very smooth and like silk to drink. A tad too easy drinking and light for this style.

jonnyguns (904) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle from liquor barons Carlisle. Pours a light brown with very little head. Aromas of spice, rum, toffee, vanilla and some oak. Taste is refreshing with notes of caramel, vanilla, spices and the rum. I get a touch of banana in there somewhere too. Pretty refreshing beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
2013-06-27. Crisp golden amber, nice foamy off white head fades. 3++ Aroma starts with a toffee like sweetness, light alcohol, reminds me a bit of Rum Butter Lifesavers actually. Flavour is similarly sweet up front. Drier malt towards the end, toasty sort of biscuity character to it. Smooth average plus bodied palate, light carbonation. Much better than expected! It has cellared for a few months. I might have had it sooner if I knew it was this good! ;) Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

bierkoning (10166) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Amber color. 7.4% on the label. Toffee, vanilla and rhum in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with with toffee, rhum and vanilla. Just a bit of wood, but rhum dominates. Sweet, sticky, alcoholic, but mellow and well rounded.

Strangebrewer (846) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
bottle. Poured clear copper with a receding foamy beige head. Woody caramel aroma. Medium body, tight carbonation, tart medium dry finish. Caramel malt flavour, fruity citrus notes with an oaky touch, peppery finish but not too spicy.
