330ml bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: the beer poured s small head that has reduced to a layer. It is a copper amber color with clarity and visions of carbonation coming up through the glass.

Smell: caramel maltiness, vanilla, spices, oak, and some fruitiness.

Taste: this beer has the Caribbean rum twist to it and is delicious. All above aromas blended well together and the rum cask aging makes this a tasty brew.

Mouthfeel: creamy smooth, medium carbonation, medium bodied, delicious, tasty, silky, and quite enjoyable.

Overall: Out of all the I&G beers I have tried so far, this one tastes the best and goes down easy. Would be cool to find this guy out on draft someday.

Fills a Dogfish Head Fisheye pint glass with clear, dark amber beer and ruby highlights. Carbonation clings to the glass while the rocky white head quickly leaves no lace but a viscous film on the glass.

The aroma has a distinct impression of Meyer’s spiced rum. Warmth brings out the quality of rum and Coke with a background of raisins, candied sugar and black cherry. There is also a nutty aroma to be found.

Alcohol is upfront with caramel and oak. There is a light rum accent with sweet malty flavors including nuts. The finish is lightly sweet at first but lingers with a touch of bitterness.

Heavily carbonated with a light body, watery texture and alcohol well above expectations.

Easy drinking, but still a sipping beer. Perhaps this one is best with dessert.

glassware: Innis and Gunn...occasion: Shark Tank retruns to TV!...aroma: rummy, for certain, with its trademark I&G whisky maltiness... intriguing as with all their brews...appearance:cognac-bodied, thinly headed with an unassuming white rim...palate: thick, soda-like fizzy body that has a syrup drip...taste: definitely vanilla and fruity esters combine wth an aggressive, bold strength...overall: a challenging brew that doesn't quiet have the spive that the bottle proclaims; it is noticeably alcoholic in its exhale
