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!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear amber with a slightly lacing off-white head. Sweet toffee and wood in the nose - same as in every Innis & Gunn. Medium body, butterscotch and wood, heavy burned caramel. Absolutely no hops. Pretty much the same as all other I & G. 130612

(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear deep amber golden with a dense and creamy beige head leaving laces. Distinct aroma of wood and rum. Medium-bodied, very sweet - almost sticky - caramel. Distinct rum notes and an absolutely absent bitterness. Starts well but ends so-so. 210908

Noze: Cherry is very present with alcool hitting after. A small touch of caramel with a bit of spices. Nice red color but with almost no head. I tought at first that it was flat but was not the case.Very warm attack because of alcool. A lot of sugar: cherry, candy cane, sugar cane; probably because of rum infusing.For those who like beers with a lot of sugar. Would be perfect with blue cheese.

markodm (23) - ITALY - JUN 12, 2012
Pours a deep brownish/reddish colour with a one finger off-white compact head. Very strong smells of hay and dryness, with some traces of nutshell and oak wood. Aroma is very complex, it is a powerful mix of rhum and nutty hints, with a caramel-toasted aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very pleasant and itís full-bodied. Very tasty and drinkable, it is one of the most interesting ales iíve ever drunk.

Dark brown colour, semi-transparent, with off white head. Aroma of sweet grains, bananas and rum. Taste is a bit boozy, sweet malts, spices, a bit of a flat finish. Average mouthfeel. Quite good.
Earlier Rating: 8/8/2011 Total Score: 2.6
This may be sacrelig to some but I really was disappointed in this. Itís okay, but the alcoholic/rum flavour is too strong.

Not quite as good as oak aged, but ok. Alcoholic strength is a little too obvious, and this goes out of taste to the whole.
