Spab (3838) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2012
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear golden orange colour with small slightly off-white head. Aroma is toffee, butter and light oakiness. Flavour is rather buttery with caramel, vanilla and a bit of oak though no real spice to speak of. Slightly lifeless mouthfeel. Not my favourite Innis & Gunn effort.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
330 ml bottle in gift pack from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep amber with a so-so light tan head. Aroma: Berry-like fruitiness, oddly sweet...like a malt liquor, unfortunately, some wood notes, a little spice, brown sugar, a bit of a savoury note, a little alcohol. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence, fairly smooth. Flav.: Lots of fruitiness, mainly berries, a touch of pepperiness, some wood and vanilla, coconut, brown sugar, hints of warm spices; dry with limited bitterness and a sweet fruity, brown sugar and wood finish.

Nothing to write home about. Thankfully, ratebeer isn’t really “home”.

nihtila (3636) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2015
27.2.2015. Clear copper orange. Aroma of toffee, vanilla, wood, maybe some spiced rum. Taste has toffee, caramel and vanilla as well, similar to aroma.

northropfrye (3593) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. One of the better beers I’ve tried by Innis and Gunn. Aroma of cinnamon, tropical fruit, cherries, vanilla. Clear reddish brown colour. Taste is sweet rum, bitter finish. Creamy texture.

BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2012
From a bottle. Pours golden orange with short lasting white head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and light spice, some vegetal hops. Tastes rank, lots of vanilla, oak, toffee, very unbalanced. Sweet and cloying, doesn’t finish well. Pretty shocking stuff, not into this at all

3.9
puboflyons (3432) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 13, 2012
From the 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. The color is a handsome looking medium amber-red with little to no head. The aroma is clean caramel malts, rum, jerky spice, and sugar in the raw. The body is smooth and creamy and fairly bold. The taste begins sweet but then there is an assertive bitterness which is probably enhanced by the rum-aging. A very nice brew.

3.6
GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle. Clear red-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of rum, coconut, vanilla, demerara sugar, a hint of oak. Medium bodied, clean on the palate. Flavour follows the aroma pretty closely, with all of the same elements, along with a slight tingle of cinnamon & nutmeg. Finish is quite long, with a nice dry woodiness, and a rum & coke booziness that wraps things up nicely.

3.1
Metalchopz (3384) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2012
Single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a foamy head. No lacing is found. The nose is quite sweet with loads of toffee, and balanced by nuts, wood, rum alcohol, flowers and mild vanilla. Thankfully, the taste is not as sweet. Soft caramel malt at first, grainy in the middle and a little hop comes out in the finish. The vanilla-oak slightly comes out in the aftertaste. Always nice to see a new experiment from Innis & Gunn, but this one just misses the boat a bit (pun intended).

3.7
rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
330ml bottle, dark brown color, with a beige head, with a sweet vanilla rhum oak barrel, sponge toffee nose, with some toasted, caramelized, biscuity malty, milk chocolate, spicy vanilla, faint cinnamon accents and a french toast, dried fig, subtle english pudding, subtle fruitcake, light butterscotch note in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet fruity toasted, caramel, biscuity, bready, dark malty, vanilla rhum oak barrel character, with some dark toffee, sponge toffee, subtle cinnamon, butterscotch, dark dried fruit, subtle burnt caramel flavours, leading towards a fruity toffeeish, spicy cinnamon vanilla rhum barrel oakiness, lingering fruity toasted, caramelized, biscuity maltiness finish.

3.3
Viper666 (3286) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Bouteille 330ml. De couleur cuivrée et claire. Nez de malt sucré, de fruits (mélange de fruits secs), moyen-léger d’alcool boisé (fût de rhum) et de caramel toffee avec des notes épicées (poivre) et de vanille. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture aux notes sirupeuses. Goût d’alcool boisé légèrement sec (fût de rhum) aux notes épicées (poivre piquant, faibles traces de cannelle) et accompagné de notes fruitées (fruits secs) et de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de malt sucré aux notes terreuses avec un léger goût de caramel toffee sucré ainsi que des traces de butterscotch et de biscuits puis en finale le goût boisé reprend un peu de vigueur. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, composé d’un goût d’alcool boisé doux légèrement piquant ainsi que des traces de houblon floral.
