Poured a nice one finger head that dissipated quickly leaving a little lacing with a nice rim ring. The smell from the rum cask and red was great, very sweet with honey and caramel. The taste balanced with the rum and oak being on the backside and blended perfectly. A perfectly aged beer with light enough flavors for anyone to enjoy. Not a stand out beer, but one that stands on it's own. I will buy this again.

The aging on this beer appears to have been properly done. The beer certainly picked up the rum notes without tasting as if they were merely flavor additives. However, I like Scotch Ales and didn't rate this beer higher because it lacked some of the fullness I look for in a wee heavy, I've never had an Innis & Gunn without the rum aging and don't know if that is indicative of this beer or if the beer was mellowed too much during the aging process. Still a good beer and I would certainly drink it again.

Pours amber-brown clear beer with nice off-white head. Smell of rum, woody smoke, dark fruits and caramel. Taste is semisweet, caramel, nuts, notes of rum. Light body despite its ABV. Not very impressing.
