330 ml bottle from LCBO into a pint glass. ABV indicates 7.4% on my bottle of I&G Spiced Rum Finish.

Appearance - Golden orange with some brown hues thrown in. A nice rich looking color with minimal bubbles. One finger of head is poured even with a fairly aggressive pour. Head dissipates quickly.

Smell - Definitely the spiced rum comes through here. Otherwise similar to other Innis & Gunn offerings from the Oak aged barrels. Caramel, toffee and vanilla. Quite a bit going on here and smells are quite potent.

Taste - Similar to the s,ell, spiced rum, caramel and vanilla. Quite rich and sweet tasting. A hint of an earthy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Nice on the mouth, yet there is a certain thinness there that was unexpected.. Very low carbonation on the mouth as with the other offerings.

Overall - A nice change, but I feel the Original and Rum Cask are better options than the spiced rum cask. Would consider purchasing again, but not in large quantities.

This is the now-called "Rum Finish", looks a little different than the posted image but the same stuff for the most part as far as I can tell - though it looks more of a deep red and less of a copper.

Appearance: Dark, rich red-brown.

Nose: Red licorice

Taste: More red licorince, rum spices, sweet apple, vanilla. Powerful sweetness, almost sickly sweet but great flavours. Kind of hits you over the head with its flavour but a great accompaniment to rich foods.

Mouthfeel: Malty, quite average in carbonation and body.

7.4% ABV per the label.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, vanilla, spice, wood, and rum aromas. Taste is much the same with vanilla, spice, and wood flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a fairly solid spiced rum presence in the aroma and flavor.

Pours dark amber with a large head.
Nose shows lots of toffee and butterscotch along with vanilla and soft spiced apple. Very sweet-smelling.
Equally sweet flavours. Maybe too sweet. More butter, butterscotch and toffee. Incredibly sweet.
Could use a lot more carbonation.
