Strong rum aroma. Flavour is full-bodied with lots of fruit. Good, but didn’t actually taste much like beer.

Bottle. Poured brown with a quick tan head that settled to a ring. Aroma of rum and milk chocolate. The flavor found rum, vanilla, brown sugar, milk chocolate, and molasses. Medium body, smooth, and a milk chocolate aftertaste.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber/brown. NO HEAD AT all, which seems weird considering other reviews. Aroma is plums, raisins, and caramelized malts. Taste is plums, vanilla, malts, and... oak barrels, for a lack of a better word. Watery/oily mouthfeel. Short finale, really. A bit boozy. Not bad, but this one is utterly unspectacular.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer is a clear, sparkling, copper-brown with a thin, dense, khaki head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. It smells like a cave with some resiny wood, a little roast and a hint of sweetness and alcohol. It’s medium bodied and syrupy with a sticky finish. It’s quite sweet. It starts out a little nutty, with no bitterness. Flavors of oak and rum take over and last past the finish. Sweetness lingers in the aftertaste. It’s not for chugging! This delivers exactly what it advertises: rum and oak.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. Heavy aromas of candied sugar, apple, dried fruit, alcohol. The taste is pretty complex. Lots of dried fruit, with alcohol, faint oak, and some smoke, faint rum / molasses, in the finish.
