0.33l clear bottle wrapped in a paper box. Have to admit that it’s some time since I’ve had a Innis & Gunn beer now, but it looks like it should. Whisky colored and crystal clear in the glass with a small quickly islandy off-white top. I like the sweet caramelly nose with peppery and spicy tones. A little bit of butter and butterscotch also wrapped in between here. Surprisingly smooth in the mouth with a light oily almost creamy mouthfeel wrapped in a average small bubbly carbonation level. It has that well known sweetness that all their beer has, in addition to this a peppery spicy and woody flavor. I’m actually liking what I’m tasting. Not cloying at all and there is a well balanced little hint of alcohol all the way that makes it a bit more interesting. I’m no big rum drinker, but I think I’m tasting the rum as well and it has a vanilla theme all the way through. Not bad at all. 11.07.2013 yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. A copper colored beer, clear, with a dense light beige head. Vanilla,
wood and brown sugar in the aroma. Caramel, tending towards butterscotch, Bread and toffee, with a little sweetness. Full body and a nice carbonation. Caramel and bread in the end. Decent, but too boring. 131129 TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 20, 2013

Another Innis & gunn beer with standard oaky character. Decent amber, nice lasting head. Some spice in the taste. Like has been stated before, those extra notes seem like add-ins and not really coherent. Feel is medium, not great. Stew41 (2025) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 17, 2013
Pretty beer. Plenty of spice and vanilla and hints albeit comes across as an additive rather than a fully integrated flavour. Still very pleasant drinking.

Aroma: Caramel and rum
Appearance: clear copper body,1 finger head with fine bubbles, decent head retention
Tatse: notes of hops but mainly sweet caramel&vanilla and a bit of peach with a rum finish. Medium carbonation. simonblaine (576) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
Amber, minimal head. Aroma of vanilla rum like beer. Taste is like a Malibu rum mixed with beer. Not like a spiced rum. Sweeter than I would like. When will it end with Innis and Gunn aging in casks?
