Deeply brilliant woods – like those one finds in a centuries old gentleman’s club in the storied cobbled streets of London – cherry and mahogany. A thick tan head fades into a carefree bubbly collar bordering a thin puddle resting in the middle.
Dark fruits explode from the mahogany and cherry depths below with raisins, dates, prunes, and figs covered in sticky saucy black strap molasses. Black root and black licorice root in the raw. Plump earthen leathery spicy grapes. Cooked and cooled raw demerara sugars.
Sweet, rich, dense, mysterious, and a bit roguish. Burnt demerara sugars and unfettered black strap molasses and the finest dark aged rum one could hope to savor. Burnt brown sugar and molasses hard candies. Intriguing addition of red licorice in the back of each swallow. Swimming amidst it all are meaty raisins, figs, and dates. Eyes closed – a fine rummy dram. Eyes open – a fine Scottish pint.
Wonderful. Sweet suppable perfection in my glass. Innis & Gunn can play around with as many barrel/wood aged varieties as their heart desires. In return, I shall aspire to drink as many as possible because I can and I want to.
Strong boozy in smell and taste. Rum notes pretty overpowering. Notes of coconut banana and hint of dark fruits. Certainly packs a punch but basically just rummy Paddycairns (76) - - NOV 4, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 A little boozy on the nose with hints of sweet malty caramel, taste is again boozy with a little sickly kick and of course a finish which scream rum Wim (4160) - Weelde, BELGIUM - NOV 3, 2017

Shared with Wim at my home during komen eten. Amber colored beer with no head and no carbonation. Malty alcoholic aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet dry. guzgorog (937) - FRANCE - OCT 27, 2017
Belle robe ambrée / brune caramel, fine mousse blanche. Nez puissant de caramel, rhum, bois. Malheureusement en bouche c'est moins, on trouve une bière trop sucrée, peu pétillante, avec des saveurs de caramel, de miel et d'épices. Bière plate, longueur moyenne, très faible amertume, assez écoeurante sur la fin...

Pours clear dark red. Scent of bad mixed rum/coke.
The texture is smooth and creamy. Notes of sweet liqourice and a hint of rum. very impressive. Icedwarf (1804) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2017
Rum finish 6.8%. Bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht bitter met iets van karamel. De rum niet echt kunnen ontdekken, desondanks best aardig bier. gunnernic (18) - SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 27, 2017
