From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a lingering finish. MaartenRF10 (1950) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle @ Homerougeau13 (3083) - Richmond, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Tasting this right after tasting I&G Original. Dark red brown, clear, beige fading head. Aroma is comparable with Original, not much, just a distant vanilla and oak. Taste is a bit less of the vanilla and oak and a bit more rum. It’s got a better body and is a bit drier.
Bottle at Luxor Public House, Las Vegas. Pours clear brownish with a tan head. Aroma of rum, dark fruit, and sweet malt, with a sweet, somewhat boozy taste. Medium bodied and a tad syrupy. KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2012
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fizzy head that was fully diminishing with no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was quite intense with a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of vanilla, rum, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a light hint of toffee.
The taste was moderately sweet and malty with notes of caramel, vanilla and dark fruit throughout with a nice cask presence and a mild rum alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with a mild boozy taste that faded slowly off the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a slight syrupy texture and a mildly soft carbonation.
Overall a fantastic tasting brew with a good sweet rum flavor and a strong malty presence...

Vertical with Orginal & Triple Matured. This won the test.
Aroma has (surprisingly) rum, some vanilla and hints of toffee. Flavour has lots of rum, some woody notes, vanilla, toffee and hints of licorice. Good.
Bottle, pours a nice dark reddish, aroma is oaky and woody, the flavour is very nice, it has a nice roasty flavour and the finish is smooth and very drinkable, really good offering Benfi (692) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark brown with dirty white head. Filtered. Nose : Alcohol , caramel , herbs and mountain honey notes. Tiramisu tart. Sip : Oily, low to medium density liquid. Low carbonation. Sweet and woody, alcohol taste. I confirm the tiramisu overall taste. Overall , I don’t enjoy aromatic beers. Interesting but nothing exciting. dnstone (3429) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours a ruby-brown color with a nice white head that settles off completely. Aroma is like rum and wood chips, quite nice. Smooth and rum-boozy off the bat, then rather sweet, approaching a barleywine flavor. Beesbeer (452) - WALES - SEP 18, 2012
This is so very nice. I think the Original is more intriguing, but this is smooth, buttery, caramel, rum spiciness and warmth, and a great toffee fudge finish. My bottle didn’t last long. note666 (1300) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2012
2012 - 09 - 16 330ml bottle. amber colour. small white head. hint of caramel , bit of rum in aroma. light sweet taste
