Sigmund (7230) - 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.

A bottle 6,8%. "Innis & Gunn Rum finish". Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet and a bit spicy with tiny alcohol finish. Very good beer.

BlackHaddock (6980) - 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 (246) - - 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

dandeman (928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
We can recognize the Innis & Gunn signature all over this beer: caramel and toffee...only. And thats the problem with this brewery; same old candy beer all the time. Olfactif: Crme brule dominante, toffee et vanille. Olfactif trs agrable mais unidimensionnel. Peut-tre une lgre touche herbace la fin. Visuel: Cuivre, claire, avec une mousse force qui fui rapidement. Gustatif: Le caramel (toffee, crme brule) est toujours dominant, mais il laisse se dvelopper quelques notes de rhum brun avec un lger bois; le tout accompagn dune chaleur enveloppante. On reconnait toujours la mme signature sucre et caramlise de cette brasserie. En bouche, cest liquoreux, mais unidimensionnel. Toujours la mme bire bonbon.

Pours a brown colour. Taste is sweet and malty, some candy. A fairly typical Innis and Gunn beer

spacecube (1646) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014
330ml in box, pours clear amber with a small white head, toffee caramel malt, oaky notes and rum, sticky molasses, balaned tidily with a long bitter finish with rum in the aftertaste. Lively carbonated with a light body, thin slighly creamy texture and a crisp finish. Good.
