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!

Sweet deep aroma with a slight spiritness to it, has rum in its aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours a deep bronze with little head. I’m a big fan of the Innis & Gunn Oak Aged - so I was looking forward to this one. Not disappointed at all. The same Oaky earthiness on this with the Rum really punching through to create a sweetness. Spicy toffee notes and caramel touches make this dance on the tongue like a slowly melting candy. Refreshingly sweet and tasty without being too sickly.

Definite oak in aroma and taste. Thin body and amber color. Modest head. Clear bottle was a negative.

Pours a transparent dark orange, sparse head that dissipates quickly. High carbonation. Looks like root beer. Aroma: Very pungent. Smells a bit foul, but strongly of oak and rum. Caramel. butterscotch. Palate: medium bodied, syrupy, oily. Smooth finish. Taste: Very sweet. Can taste the rum. Not bad.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is candy like sweetness, some malt and liquorice. Flavour is sweet malt, liquorice, red fruit, touch of smoke, coconutty wood and rum. Very nice.

Pretty ruby red with a small head. The aroma is candy sweet with some vanilla and fruit and a hint of rum. The flavor is the same. Very nice but just a bit too sweet for me. Save it to enjoy with dessert.

TATE (374) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is sweet like candy. This follows through in the flavor that is sweet and the aftertaste of rum. Apparently, I like my beer to be rum free and would pass on this one next time.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep reddish brown, somewhere between rust and garnet, with fleeting khaki head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, cola, a hint of oak/vanillin, some molasses and rum. The flavor is very caramelly with some wood and molasses notes. The finish is a bit spicy. Not as complex as I was hoping. Ok, though.
