Thoroughly enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a sifter. This fine Scottish pours a reddish brown with a dissipating off white head of fine beaded bubbles that finely comes to rest in a thin ring and little lacing. Nose of oak, brown sugars, toffee, and roasted nuts. Flavors are complex with rum and brown sugars coming through on the front and sides, a light oak character on the back, and a nice nutty character on the aftertaste blending in nicely with brown sugars and a sweet vanilla note. Smooth lightly carbonated mouth feel is slick and crisp with alcohol warmth slowly coming through. Very nice. Another great from Innis and Gunn.

Cheers!

A: crystal clear; reddish brown; 1 finger khaki head that receded quickly to a thin patchy cap; very little lacing;

S: sweet malt, brown sugar, oak; a little medicinal; a little musty;

T: the barrel aging is most noticeable up front; molasses becomes predominant at mid-palate with a hint of dark fruit; almost no bitterness;

M: medium to full bodied; light carbonation;

O: flavor wasn't as complex as I expected, but this was quite nice;

Mahogany in color with a fingers worth of head. Smell is sweet sugar with a mixture of vanilla, oak, and rum. Taste is initially sweet, dominated by rum with oak more towards the finish. Mouthful is thin with medium carbonation. Overall a great beer for rum lovers.

Finished in oak rum barrels, this beer imparts the sweet and spicy characters of the barrels. Simply delicious!

I love beer and I love rum, so I thought I'd love this. But I don't. I still love the idea, but this one didn't work for me.
