This limited brew is a complex one. From the first sip, you can taste the spiced rum, along with notes of vanilla. A complex taste and a perfect sipping beer.

bottle from Bev Co. Pours translucent copper with 3-finger creamy, uniform off-white head that laces well. Nose is toffee, oak, spicy spirity, and malty. Tastes very malty, woody and spirity, with some mid-palate spices, fruit, and caramel. Finishes oaky, spicy, and malty. worth the price

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into the Innis and Gunn tulip.
The appearance was a nice hazy brown color with some light red tinges around the edges of the glass. There was a decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a million. There was a moderate amount of white foamy lacing trickling down the glass.
The smell had a nice toasted oaky vanilla to glaze over top of a light rum.
The taste was sweet and oaky along with the rum but not in an overly boozy way.
On the palate, this one sat right at medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation was pretty smooth.
Overall, this was a pretty good beer worthy of coming back to.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ingen skumkrona, mörkare än normal ale, men samma avslagna "munkänsla" som engelsk real ale. Maltig, söt sirapsmak, men ingen rom i eftersmaken. Väldigt lättdrucket för att vara 7,4%!

Pours a clear deep red with a small. All white ring. Aroma of rich caramel, creamy pudding, baked apples, pears, vanilla and oak. Taste is biscuit, caramelized fruits like pear and apple with cinnamon spice like spiced rum. Also a bit of oak and lychee on the finish from the hop bitterness. Excellent oak aged Scottish export ale.
