Poured into my Innis and Gunn tulip. Little to no head - normal for a cask ale. Nice amber\auburn color.

Little bit floral, vanilla, spices - cloves, nutmeg. Candy, with some fruit. Baked banana bread.

Flowery Tastes, not as much oak as the usual Innis and Gunn, but still some vanilla flavors from the wood. Relatively bitter. I got more out of the nose the from the taste, let's see how it warms up - so far it's kind of disappointing... Nope, pretty much stays the same throughout, slight rum and oak tastes followed by a sour, bitter and alcohol ending.

I enjoy this brewery quite a lot and this is the second "Rum" themed beer they have produced that falls flat. They should stick to whisky barrels.

3.13/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured in to snifter.

A - Medium orange, yellow around the edges. A small layer of cream coloured head formed and immediately disappeared.

S - Toffee, dark caramel, oak, spiced rum.

T - Barrel qualities up front - oak, vanilla, spices and dark rum. Toffee and dark caramel flavours are present as well.

M - Light to medium body. A touch watery. Light carbonation.

O - A decent enough beer, but as is my opinion of most I&G beers, they didn't make the base beer substantial enough to hold up to the barrel aging. Fairly one dimensional.

3.2/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - shiny coppery color with a half finger of light tan head, heavy swift small carbonation keeps the head alive for a few extra minutes

S - a great liquor sweetness, knowing its source helps place it, not sure if I would be able to if I didn't know already. The oak is far more obvious, that rich thick vanilla woodsiness that I have come to love in oak aged brews

T - The oak is the biggest element in this version, the thick sweetness of liquor is present and the illusion of the spiced version of rum is there but I can't tell if its the power of suggestion or if I can really taste it.

M&D&O - thinner than expected, sweet and malty without being overpowering but the body leaves something to be desired. Soooo close...

3.23/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: very deep amber colour; clear; head dissipates swiftly to almost nothing

Aroma: sweet caramel, rum, fruity, vanilla, toffee - this is gonna be a sweet one (again)

Taste & Mouthfeel: as expected - overly sweet and syrupy, with big vanilla and fruity rum flavours; cloying, with almost nothing to balance it out; there might be some oak character in the finish, but not much hint of spiced rum influence it could really be any rum; it actually sets your teeth on edge it's so sweet

Overall: pretty typical from Innis & Gunn, but even more sugary than their others; was hoping for some differentiation, didn't get it

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cleans orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, mellow spice and a mellow malt. In the taste, spicy cinnamon, faint sugary, and a note of alcohol. A spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry spice and a small sugary alcohol in the aftertaste. Spicy and a bit boozy, and a bit thin under that.

3.33/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a bronze color with a slight white head which dissipated almost immediately. Aroma of butterscotch, spices and a hint of booze. Taste a lot of vanilla and spicy rum with a dry finish. Get hints of the oak and a slight buttery flavor. Pretty light body with moderate carbonation. Overall a decent beer although not something I would seek out on a regular basis.
