Scottish Oak Aged Beer

DSC_2096a

Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer

This Scottish brewer is quite well known, especially for this product - a beer aged in used bourbon casks. I wanted a taste, out of curiousity. It's not for me - this is certainly more so a novelty beer than one of taste. Let's be honest, yes? The oak use is hideous. Completely obliterates what flavour the beer had, if it had any to begin with. Caramel and vanilla on the palate, sickeningly sweet from the oak. Sticky and viscous, just undrinkable.
