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.

Aroma is oak wood and malty sweetness. First sip is oak sour and caramel sweet malts. Aftertaste is dextrin sugar and smooth oakiness.

from the same Total Wine the old arse blonde was from. This was much better, though also seemingly past its prime. Muddled malts, with a light spice and boozey oak finish. Just ok.

TomTron (447) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a thin head. Aromas of vanilla and some fruity notes. Flavor is a bit of the same with some caramel roasted malts. Not bad, pretty sweet and not really any hint of rum from what I can tell, but still a decent offering.

Bottle @ home. aged 4 years. Dark amber color and a small head. Sweet aroma with toffee, rum, caramel, wood, spices, vanilla. Low carbonation, medium body, dry finish. Similar taste.

Sigmund (6117) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2015
330 ml clear bottle in cardboard box, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. BB date Sept. 2013. ABV is 7.4%. Cognac colour, slightly hazy. Small off-white head. Fairly nice sweetish aroma of spiced rum and oak, some vanilla. Nice medium sweet flavour, spiced rum, spiced stewed fruits, moderate oak and vanilla. Minimal hops, as in all Innis & Gunn beers, but here the spiciness to some degree compensates for the lack of hops. Probably the best I & G variety Ive had so far

Decent though sweet aroma. Dark golden amber with only medium carbonation - very thin off White head . Again sweet taste of toffee. Good palate. Overall reasonable tasting but probably too sweet for me.

BlackHaddock (5387) - 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.

Firefly54 (244) - - DEC 27, 2014
Typical Innis & Gunn aroma, toffee, oak, vanilla. getting very slight spiced rum notes. Taste is very similar, toffee being the main player, buttery, creme brle, not much rum finish for me. Got a sweet tooth though so its fine with me
