COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
Originally brewed at Belhaven for Innis & Gunn. Production moved to Wellpark - date unknown.
NOTE: This is the same beer as the Oak Aged Beer Rum Finish. According to Innis & Gunn "they are the same beer, the process changed slightly so we changed the name. But the recipe is the same."

Has also been seen at 6.8%
Ingredients: Golden Promise and Crystal malt; Phoenix hops.
We are delighted to present this unique limited bottling of Innis & Gunn finished in oak barrels which previously contained navy rum. Maturation in special oak barrels imparts Navy rums with the sweet, spicy character for which they are renowned. We have long wondered what flavours might be imparted to our beer by finishing it in these same barrels and earlier this year we decided to find out. We brewed a special batch of Innis & Gunn beer and matured it in oak for 60 days. Every single drop spent half of that time in American oak barrels before being refilled into selected navy rum barrels to finish the lengthy maturation. Once the beer had absorbed the unique character the barrels were emptied, the beer blended and then maturation continued for a further 47 days until all of the flavours had married together and mellowed. We think the result is absolutely delicious!

This is a beautifully done beer, very smooth finish. The flavour is just amazing. The kick is pretty good too! Definitely one of my favorites.

Cerveza con curioso sabor a tofe, suave a la vez que con cuerpo. Con la graduacion suficiente para disfrutarla y a la vez dulce para que no amargue. Mi favorita Nine Tails

Hands down, my favorite beer ever. Iím not going to get all fancy with aromas of this and hints of that. It is fantastic and if you donít like this stick to Budweiser.

One of the few beers I regularly enjoy, with a beautiful aroma and sophisticated taste. The rum cask ageing process is well worth the effort!

The single most exquisite beer I have ever tried. I joined this site solely to praise this beer. I should mention I am not a rum drinker, whisky being my drink of choice. Where has this beer been hiding all my life. I have been given a lavish selection of beers to give feedback on and would happily trade them all for a second bottle of this! Absolutely delicious.

12 oz bottle from The Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Probably lucky to have found this just sitting on the shelf at the Hive -- have to go back to get the rest of the dusty remainders. The combo of rum and beer is perfect and produces a very smooth mouth feel and swallowing. The rum is strong, but balanced, and lingers on the palate for just the right amount of time. Hurry up and get one before theyíre gone!

Dark beer that is aged right. The taste touches your taste buds and it stays there for awhile. If you have never tried this beer it is certainly worth a try and worth the money.

An excellent beer, maintains the character of innis & gunnís oak aged beer, but also picks up a strong rummy flavour. Perfectly carbonised, feel wonderful in the mouth.

Smells almost coffee like and malty smooth. Jonathanís favorite, its very smooth with a lot of sweet rum flavors, and itís not heavy or dry, it very light and refreshing.
