Innis & Gunn Rum Aged

This is a 6.8% ABV beer aged on rum oak chips. It is by Innis & Gunn of Edinburgh, Scotland. 

The beer pours a dark brown with a ruby tinge. There is about a half inch of off-white head. The aroma is sweet, with a fruity tang, and a bit of spices, molasses, dark fruits, with a light woodiness. The taste follows the aromas, and has a hint of smokiness. On the end, there is a bit of vanilla. The beer drinks quite light, almost watery. The aftertaste has a weird effect, like artificial sweetener and too much woodiness. 

I have now tried four of their beers. I liked the Original Oak Aged, but the other three I have tried have been fairly disappointing, although this is better than the Toasted Oak IPA and the Scottish Porter which were both extremely disappointing.
