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!

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 it’s full-bodied. Very tasty and drinkable, it is one of the most interesting ales i’ve 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.

This may be sacrelig to some but I really was disappointed in this. It’s okay, but the alcoholic/rum flavour is too strong.

The best innis and gunn selection I’ve had. Nice dark brown with minimal head. Sweet malty woody smells. Toffee. Bubble gum and brown sugar flavours with a boozy rum finish. Decent beer.

nazzty (1256) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2012
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.

Nobody does aroma like Innis and Gunn. Pours a dark brown with a small disappearing carbonation. Aroma is intense oak and rum with sweet caramel. Taste is a bold slap of rum raisin and caramel toffee alcohol. It slowly fades to oak dryness.

I really adore Innis & Gunn. The flavours that they inject into their beer are perfect for my palate. Aroma of rum, fruit and toffee. Taste is toffee, spice, malt and marvelousness!

330 ml bottle. Pours ruby colour with minimal creamy head that disappears quickly. Very pleasant aroma of rum, dark fruits, spices and some burnt sugar. Taste of vanilla, malt, sugarcane and raisins. Full bodied, lively carbonation. Vanilla finish with a hint of green tea. A fantastic beer with plenty of character.
