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.

stefannilssons (1491) - 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.

sulawang (641) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2013
pours medium brown-amber with a nice size creamy heady, thin retention, some active streams. Vanilla & toffee malts on the nose. Attack: gentle 7/10-mellow sweetness mixed with caramel malts Mid-palate: more malts, minor alcohol detection/rum, trace amounts of cinnamon/nutmeg, mild pepperiness Finish: soft crisp caramel light bitter malts, clean finish. Very smooth and drinkable. I like it more than their original.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
(bottle, 33cl, 2012 edition) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Mildly malty aroma with notes of coconut, anise, vanilla and toffee, accompanied by a delicately fruity touch of ripe pineapples. Moderately sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Slightly buttery malty base with oaky accents with hints of vanilla and toffee; moderately sweet malty finish, not as sticky as expected with a whiff of alcohol. Not bad, quite rounded. 13.IV.13
