4.13/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a dark red with a small fluffy white head.

The sweet smell of the rum is obvious, as well as oak and vanilla.

The taste is quite sweet with the rum and brown sugar. There also a little alcohol in there.

The mouth feel is medium with medium carbonation with a little burn from the alcohol.

Overall I've been impressed by Innes and Gunn and will be looking to try some of their other offerings.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 oz. bottle, no freshness dating. Pours a deep, amber, mostly clear body, with a slight red tint. The head starts out strong with about two-fingers of tan head, but does not retain long and leaves only a little lacing.

The aroma is very sweet. The rum is apparent, as is brown sugar, molasses, and a bit of earthy hops. A good set up for the taste overall.

The taste is along similar lines of the aroma with a sweet malt flavor featuring molasses and a hint of chocolate, and the ever-present rum notes. The earthy hop notes are muted and take a back seat to the sweet malt and rum flavors.

Medium texture in the mouthfeel and only a slight note of the alcohol. Overall, for my first rum-barrel aged brew, I'm decently impressed with the flavors and would recommend this brew.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Appearance- beautiful dark inviting!

Smell- Molassas, brown sugar, raisin, grain bread, and RUM!

Taste- A sweet beer with tonnes of follow up to the nose! Lots of molasses and run. Truely more complex than my meager palate can translate. Grain bread dark fruits and the tail has a sweet rum that leaves you craving more.

Mouth- a bit boozey with the smallest sting. Lightness on the young and a hint of lingering satisfying film.

Overall- 9.5 out of 10! I'll be looking for this to bring home! A beer very well thought out!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Had on draft at WFM Columbus circle- poured a dark brown color, with a one finger off-white head, very little retention and no lacing. Kinda clear like cola without the bubbles.

Definitely smells like rum- sweet dark rum with the alcohol softened by dark malt. Oak lingers but is hard to pinpoint.

Tastes pretty sweet- not sickeningly so at all. The sweet rum is omnipresent and is mixed with some malt sweetness and a little of the oak. Alcohol warms in the way day but very pleasantly.

Mouthfeel is syrupy but with the proper carbonation to make it highly quaffable. Of course its not a beer you'll tear through but it's not disgustingly thick. Good stuff.

Serving type: on-tap

4.03/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - A lot of fizz, but not much of a head. Thick, amber hue makes up for it.

S - Sweet caramel and roast coffee aroma.

T/M - Smooth, sweet taste of the above. Hints of cinnamon, brown sugar, mocha and syrup. It's all a bit too sweet. Carbonation hurts the mouthfeel a bit.

O - I had previously called this one of the best beers around. Time has changed me a bit. Still, it's a lovely tasting beer for sipping, and I admire a great deal about it. Grab a bottle and hang out on the deck this spring.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 3/3/12

A clear reddish amber with a short lived two finger beige head that leaves no lace

S rye bread dipped in molasses with some vanilla

T some oak, cola and a little rum raisin on top of what I smell

M medium bodied with decent carbonation, spicy finish with just a little heat

O worth the price but not worth searching for

the pioneers of barrel aging beer haven't really kept up with the times IMO, decent stuff but not the best barrel aged offering I've had recently

3.23/5  rDev -15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured on tap at Sunset Boston.
Pours an amber brown with good head.
Smells of vanilla malts and alcohol - rum.
Taste is of malty alcohol. Typical scotch ale flavors but lots of rum flavors. It seems lacking and unbalanced.
Not my fav style but its ok. I wouldn't get again.
