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% (Rum Aged)
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!

A 330ml bottle with a best before end of March 2016 date and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a clear dark reddish copper with a slightly less than one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly leaving some nice lacing. Aromas are strong vanilla, raisins and oak with hints of toffee, caramel and rum. Taste was sweet-ish rum and plum with a nice long vanilla, oak, coconut finish. There was also some hints of caramel and butterscotch in between. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Overall, this was nice and interesting albeit a bit vanilla heavy. I would not categorise this as an everyday drink but it’s something I wouldn’t mind trying every now and then.

Brandman (2824) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Mahogany body, small white head. Aroma has huge sugary butterness, rum ia present and some caramel behind the first scent. Flavour turns nutty and buttery with rum notes all over. Underlying there is layer of fruitiness. Warming and really much different things going on in the beer. Not sure if I like em all.

Garrold (4020) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle. A quid, from the local offy. Clear, dark copper colour. Messy, thin, pale tan head. Toffee malts. Mint rock. Vine fruits. Taste is sugary sweet. Some nasty, burnt sugar bitterness. Claggy mouthfeel. Artificial sweetener on the finish. Interesting to note the rating disparity with these beers. I’m in the, "I’m glad I only paid a quid" category.
