UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 Rum, oak and dark toffee aroma is medium strong, sweet and inviting. Very much caramell, soft, bit ripe dark fruits, raisins. Clear ruby- red to mahogany with creamy slightly beige head that is medium long. Taste is interesting. Caramel, dessert spices, ripe fruits, rum. Soft in mouth, bit fizzy carbonation, full bodied, long finish is lively. Alcohol evident but not unpleasant. Sweet but not overly.

Pours a clear amber with a slightly lacing off-white head. Sweet toffee and wood in the nose - same as in every Innis & Gunn. Medium body, butterscotch and wood, heavy burned caramel. Absolutely no hops. Pretty much the same as all other I & Gasheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012

Clear, amber color with a small, but long lasting head with some lacing. A sweet and malty aroma of rum, oak, toffee and vanilla. A strong, malty vanilla flavour with notes of coconut and an oaky, wooden aftertaste. This all sounds good in writing but there is a distinct taste of vomit to me. I find this beer disgusting.

Skunky aroma with plenty of oak vanilla and wood and a bit of bread crust. Clear dark amber with a white patch and bubbly ring on top. Flavour is a mouthful of American oak butterscotch and a little vanilla with not as much skunk as in the nose. Notes of red fruit with balance toward sweetness, despite a late, subtle bitterness. Watermelon and bread crust accent a ethanol sweetness as well. Light body, medium carbonation, almost clean finish. Habanero (4672) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2012
Bottled. Pours clear amber with a medium sized off-white head. Leaving a fair lacing on the glass. Nose of vanilla and caramel. Sweet flavor with wood, vanilla, caramel and spicy rum notes. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. More dry finish with spicy notes. robinvboyer (4663) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2012
Dark ruby pour, small off white head. Aromas of toffee, plums, lightly roasted malts and some butter. Soft carb, thick mouthfeel. The finish is light on the bitterness with a light vinous sweetness, and some more toffee, and caramel. Light wood, some vanilla, rum adds an alcohol sweetness. Decent.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 Bottled. A dark ruby coloured beer with a wispy off-white head. The aroma has rum notes together with some sweet oak, vanilla and toffee. The taste is sweet with more oaky notes, rum and whisky. Nice alcohol and even a hint of chocolate. Silky smooth and very suave.

auburn brown colour but kinda clear. mostly beer aroma with caramel and toast but a slight hint of rum and a woodsy note. Medium bodied brew but has a quick flavour profile. Sweet caramel and a slight hint of heat. better than their other brews but still not so impressive. WilleLW (273) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Darker redish colour with a white head. Sweet aroma of rum and some malt and a hint of roasted sugar. Sweet taste with a hint of rum, sugar and brown roasted sugar. kerenmk (4751) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 17, 2012
