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.

Davros (2323) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2013
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows lots of toffee and butterscotch along with vanilla and soft spiced apple. Very sweet-smelling. Equally sweet flavours. Maybe too sweet. More butter, butterscotch and toffee. Incredibly sweet. Could use a lot more carbonation.

Reimer96 (1513) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Pours a clear medium copper with a small white ring. Aroma of vanilla, oak, toffee, spices and some sweet dried fruits. Taste is oak, spiced rum, vanilla, toffee and a clean and crisp bitterness on the finish. Decent touch.

StueyD (1439) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2013
A mid amber orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A distinctly ’Innis & Gunn’ aroma, woody, vanilla, buttery and sweet caramel, plus a hint of alcoholic Rum. Full mouthfeel. A full-bodied sweet taste, all the usual elements of wood, vanilla, and caramel, then a slightly tart alcohol flavour, suggesting the Rum. The finish is a tad dry as the woody flavours come to the fore.

Pours a brown colour. Taste is sweet and malty, some candy. A fairly typical Innis and Gunn beer

We can recognize the Innis & Gunn signature all over this beer: caramel and toffee...only. And that’s the problem with this brewery; same old candy beer all the time. Olfactif: Crème brulée dominante, toffee et vanille. Olfactif très agréable mais unidimensionnel. Peut-être une légère touche herbacée à la fin. Visuel: Cuivrée, claire, avec une mousse forcée qui fui rapidement. Gustatif: Le caramel (toffee, crème brulée) est toujours dominant, mais il laisse se développer quelques notes de rhum brun avec un léger boisé; le tout accompagné d’une chaleur enveloppante. On reconnait toujours la même signature sucrée et caramélisée de cette brasserie. En bouche, c’est liquoreux, mais unidimensionnel. Toujours la même bière bonbon.

BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
7.4% ABV: 330ml bottle. BBD Sep 15, poured into a Gordon badged thistle shaped glass at home on 6th Mar 15 during a Scottish tasting evening I had with myself. Looked lovely, clear toffee apple red/amber with a creamy head in colour and texture. Caramel and toffee nose, very malty in all aspects. I wanted to find Rum and spices but failed in the aroma. However both Rum and spices did appear in the taste, the flavour was a bit too sweet though, even for my sweet tooth, vanilla notes arriving mid-sip and adding to the sweetness, just when a hop bitterness might have calmed down the whole brew and helped to balance out the sweetness. I actually liked it a lot more than most beers I have had from these guys.

stefannilssons (1541) - SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2011
Efter att ha hällt upp ölen i glaset kände jag direkt en ton av söt rom, så utifrån första intrycket verkar det inte röra sig om falsk marknadsföring i alla fall. Utöver romen kunde jag också känna en krydda som jag inte kan precisera. Smaken följer upp aromen på ett väntat sätt men jag kan inte komma ifrån känslan av att ölen är lite vattnig. Smaken är så kraftig som jag vill ha den men ölen saknar en kraftig kropp för att bära upp smaken. Men trots det är det en god, men framförallt en intressant, öl.
