WTF?!?!

I've tried to be as objective in my individual scores so the accumulative score might appear higher than what it should. WTFX2?

I picked one up because I had one of their glasses early on in my beer exploation days. I figured, hey... they gave me a free glass - I'll give their beer a shot. Although, even their bottle never captivated me.

Not to be redundant but WTF? It doesn't even taste like a beer. Perhaps an acquired taste?? Sweet, sparkling, cider? WTF? It's just wrong. Sorry Innis. All that Oak Aging gone to waste. Not for me, although I know some must appreciate you.

Best By MAR2014

A: Pours a deep ruby color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a thin layer of bubbles after about a minute

S: Some sweet malts, cherry, oak, more dark fruits, and a hint of the rum make up for a majority of the nose. Some nice complexity going on

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a bit of sweetness accompanied by the same cherry, oak, and dark fruits found in the nose. Also get some vanilla and a hint of rum that gives off some more fruitiness

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. A little on the prickly side

O: A very nice dessert beer with a good amount of sweetness balanced by the oak and fruitiness. A solid example of using spirit-soaked oak chips to add a nice depth and complexity to a beer. Can't complain about price, either

Copper amber body with a light tan head fizzy carbonation dwindles quick with scant amounts of lacing, the aroma is upfront with a sweet sugar cane rum and mild oak notes. Pretty pleasant smelling stuff, I'm engaged let's take the first sip. A bit sweet but very enjoyable limited heat from the rum, which is a good thing. The oak chips soaked in rum added to a nice base Scotch ale is great concept, definitely solid and enjoyable. Flavors are straight forward hints of vanilla oak, caramelized sugars with a soothing hint of alcohol in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with no cloying or over done qualities, carbonation is rather light but appropriate for this beer. Overall I would drink this again, a solid offering that any liquor or beer drinker will enjoy. This could be a perfect cigar beer, next time I will try that pairing.
