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.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2012
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of oak wood, honey, dried fruit, banana, coconut, rum, molasses, orange and spices. Fruity taste with dried fruit, honey, oak wood, banana, orange, toffee, a touch of chocolate and a sweet, spicy finish with a touch of rum and vanilla. Medium body, fairly sweet (but not going too far). I expected something sweet and cloying, but this was quite balanced and tasty. Quite nice.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Liquor Store at the Airport in Vancouver, BC on 10/22/2012. Colour: Dark brown with thin white lacing. Nose: Definitive oak with a nice vanilla backdrop. Sea salt air. Spice is present but not heavy. Swirling brings out cherries. Taste: Medium-high sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Strong presence of icing sugar among a bed of spices. Floral and a bit poofy. Not really my bag.

Studentofbrrs (90) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
The fact that it was brewed in rum infused oak barrels is evident in both aroma and taste. It goes down smooth and has no lingering aftertaste

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear deep amber body with a thick, creamy off-white head, looking very nice indeed. Nose is strong vanilla and oak tones with caramel malts and caramel pudding (loads of it here), booze, rum and hints of pepper, butterscotch and sugar. Sweet as hell, but still kind of tantalizing. Taste is sweet vanilla and butterscotch, with caramel pudding, rum and sugary grains in the back. Hints of booze and wood in the finish. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A bit of a vanilla-and-rum overdose, but since I do have a sweet tooth I’m willing to let some of the madness slide. Nevertheless, it’s a bit too much in the end but definitely a taste-packing brew.

HoppyBudgie (640) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from kvadrat. Golden color with off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel aroma with hints of vanilla. Fruity, malty, spicey and some lactose caramel in there but not so mutch as the plain Innis and gun has. Fruity finish

Clear amber beer, tidy pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, a little soft. Mild minerally carbonation. Fresh malt cream with a trace of wood. Not really getting much rum. Mild citrus. It’s inoffensive but overall a bit of a disappointment.

vanvenlo (1191) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2013
Slowbeer bottle (1-Oct-13) Lovely sweet woody caramel molasses spice aroma. Nice red orange colour, poor head and suds lacing. Sweet caramel malt rum vanilla spice flavour but a bit simple. Rum spice mouth warming finish and light tangy sweet vanilla aftertaste that dies away quickly.

330ml bottle. Clear copper colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Aroma has toffee and oak notes, a touch of vanilla. Taste is moderately sweet malty, notes of toffee, oak, a touch of vanilla, a slightly biting mixture of pepper and bitter hop.
