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"!

I bought this on the Aran Islands in a SPAR Grocery Store after biking ~20 km. Really good beer!

Bottle. Deep red color with medium white head. Aroma of burnt wood, caramel, spice, rum. Interesting. In flavor rum, dates, caramel and some unusual, but not unpleasant bitterness. Rum is also present in aftertaste. I like this beer, would buy again.

Reminds me of a thinner abbey dubbel. Slightly sweet and fruity with a very refined flavor & light bittersweet aftertaste.
