Innis & Gunn Rum Cask Ale ****

7.4% Strong rum aroma with no head. Effervescent dark body, but not lager bubbly. Pronounced malt flavor, sweet due to the malt with a taste of alcohol.  B’s comment was that it tasted like ‘rum and coke’ without knowing what it was, and well that wasn’t too far off. It comes from a Scottish brewer based in Edinburgh who uses oak aged barrels, and this limited edition beer from 150 barrels only, comes in a neat little box and at 7.4% for a pound fifty at Waitross, I recommend it strongly.
