Bought from shelf at Total wine. Amber color with small amount of head. Smell is malts and sweetness. Flavor follows the same line. Sweetness from the rum, but much actual rum flavor. A bit thin bodied. Not a bad beer, just wish there was more rum flavor

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish tulip

L: Surprisingly clear dark red/copper pour. Thin off-white head. Spotty lacing.

S: Lots of oak... cherry... some booze and sweetness.

T/F: Fruity and dark... tobacco and cherry.... oak with a hint of vanilla and must. Complex and complicated... a bit of rum present, mostly in the finish. More barrel character than booze, and rounded out with some hop bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium body.

O: The flavor is subtle but complex.... and different from most others I've tried. Definitely one to sip... great for a cold night. Very glad I tried it.

Clear dark caramel amber.. Bottle purchased at the COOP.. Thin wispy head with no lacing. Hints of rum and oak.. caramel and treacle are present but seem drier than the original.

This is a solid beer with a pleasing aroma and a distinctive taste. I won't pretend to be an expert, but I could detect a strong maltiness and a hint of rum. I&G will definitely get a future pickup.

My first Innis and Gunn, and how could I resist? I love rum...

A very nice dark tan color, though there is really no head and no lacing. An interesting smell of the oak, the rum, and the hops - not what I expected since I am a rum lover, and not as much smell to the rum though I could tell it was there. A very smooth feel, with a slight creaminess with the plus that the carbonation is low. As stated, I love rum. This is my first rum cask beer and I expected more of a rum flavor. It was there, just not what I expected. I think I'll have to look for others and try them out to see if I do find what I'm looking for. Nonetheless, this is a good beer. Though not necessarily sessionable, I can definitely down a few of these on a "sit-back-and-just-relax" evening.

Mildly sulfuric in taste but not smell (??), probably not intended. Very smooth and refreshing otherwise. Cant taste the rum at all
