Innis & Gunn were one of the first beer companies I encountered using barrel ageing to give additional flavours to their brews.
This Caribbean Rum Cask is the latest I picked up in a local Co-op on my Scottish travels.
It’s slightly unusual in using Red Beer as the donor brew rather than the commoner stouts normally found.
I do like the neck collar motif proudly displaying ‘Aged 51 Days‘.
There’s a lovely foamy head on pouring.
I’m getting a dark, rich malty aroma.
The palate is almost luxurious – sweet & heavy.
Suits my tastes.
Another nice one from Innis & Gunn!
