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!

mikkellund42 (766) - DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear dark reddish brown with small non-lasting white head. Aroma is melon, peach, banana, vanilla, caramel, malt, dough and mild cheese. Hints of coffee. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Body is oily with lively carbonation. Finish is long, bitter and sweet, with notes of caramel, licorice, coffee, cream and brown sugar. Refreshing yet complex beer.

Nice beer with woody aftertaste. I miss a bit more taste of malt, but the warmth of alkohol in the end is just perfect.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a clear and dark copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, rum and notes of alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and a low level of carbonation. Overall an average beer.

Foffern (1685) - Bodř, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at home. In the glass the beer has a clear nut-brown colour with a pretty big light beige head. The aroma is characterized by sweet malt, caramel, and some roast and alcohol. The taste is quite sweet with a touch of caramel, salty licorice, sweet biscuits, and a little bit roast again. The beer feels quite soft, smooth and silky in the mouth, and holds very little bitterness. A very easy-drinking beer. It appears to me as a sweeter type of British ale.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 8, 2012
Sötét borostyán színnel ragyog poharunkban ez a sör, aminek tetején egy közepes méretű, sárgás színű hab csücsül, ami elég hamar nyugovóra tér és csak egy vékony lepedőt hagy maga után. Illata intenzíven rumos, mazsolás, vaníliás, karamellás és igen malátás és tölgyes. Ezek a jegyek az ízében is nagyon szépen jönnek és valahogy igen kiegyensúlyozottnak tűnnek, szépen támogatják egymást. Nagyszerűen érezni a rumot, sok mazsolát, vaníliát, és a tölgyhordós aromákat is. Közepesen testes és alig szénsavas, az alkohol szépen elrejtve maradt az alkohol. Utóíze karamellás, gyümölcsös és édeskés, enyhén száraz és lassan cseng le. Igen különleges és érdekes söröcske, ami a rumot és az édesebb söröket kedvelők között nagy sikert arathat, nem beszélve a kalózokról. Én szárazföldi patkány vagyok, de ez az ale nekem is ízlett.

Voodoo (562) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pours from a clear bottle with the look of root beer with a quickly dissipating head. Rum, slight raisin and oak hit hard with a lingering bit of alcohol in a full bodied taste and just slightly oily finish.

humlelala (1307) - DENMARK - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 (33 cl bottle from a supermarket) Pours clear, dark copper with medium, tan head that fades quickly. Some lace. Initial aroma is a bit skunky with buttery notes, followed by pleasant, malty notes with smooth hints of oak and what might well be spiced rum. Medium carbonation, oily texture with a medium body, lively carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Taste is mildly bitter upfront with some brown sugar impressions. If it weren’t skunky it would probably be good on an autumn evening in a pub. Girlfriend says: "It’s nearly fizzy."

Nilz (503) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours Clear but so dark with red tinge, head is pale magnolia, last although thins. The nose is rum and a spiciness. The taste is a vanilla, oak and rum taste and spice fruits, general sweetness. Medium, almost light body considering the taste. The carbonation fine. A glass of ale to savour its unconventionality!

Bottle. Pours a thin dark brown with little head. Some mild smokey flavor at the first taste that fades as you drink it. OK overall, but not memorable.
