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

I love always knowing how to expect a brew to do; this one is one is: "one not to miss"!
