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!

Overall a decent beer that I would have again. The smell is rich in oak and sweet. Don’t really get too much rum in either the smell of the taste imo. Taste is good and smooth with little aftertaste.

This made me want to drink a rum and coke. The rum character is not overpowering but is definitely noticeable. Colour is slightly darker than the Canada Day or regular oak aged beer. Again, finishes slightly sweet with a very malt forward mouthfeel that is quite full bodied. Very nice beer indeed.

Bottled. Ambery red colour, with a small beige head. Aroma is fruits, some maltyness and mild floral notes. Flavour is fruity, rum, quite nicely balanced. Pleasant, and one of the most surprising ones in this series.

Nice deep aroma. Some caramel, roasty, wood and vanilla. Deep red/brown clear appearance with a light brown quickly disapearing head. Very small fizzy bubbles. Not much carbonation in the beer itself. Some sweetness with a bit of sour, saltyness and a slight bitter. The sour and sweet lingers for a while. Not bad at all and the rum cask comes through nicely.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on the first Saturday of December at home. Appearance is a nice dark brown, gold at the bottom of the glass with a rich off white head. Aroma of oak, rum, bit of vanilla, a bit of malt, mostly booze over beer smell. Taste is more balanced, nice alcoholic flavor from rum/oak that to me makes it taste a bit like bourbon, maybe a touch of spice in the flavor, vanilla. It’s pretty good.

341ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel dark fruits and maybe something slightly resembling rum. Not as good as the original. The vanilla is not very well pronounced.

Searched for this one, saw the Spiced rum finish, aged 47 days. saw the rum cask, aged 102 days... this is the Rum Finish, Aged for 57 Days. Clear bottle, yay, but that is their norm. Pours an amber color with about a finger of head. it is nice... Nose is odd. I get the crappy Innis and Gunn beer nose, but then the soft and actually quite nice oaky rum nose. it is not an over powering rum nose, and it is not an over powering oak nose, but it is a nice blend of the two... now, if they could get rid of the crappy underlying beer nose. Taste is much the same as the nose. i get the crappy underlying beer... then i get the nice smooth oaky rum. It finishes quite nice. VERY nice actually. But the regular innis and gunn is there, and I can taste it. This is the best Innis and Gunn I have ever had though. I have had the Canada whiskey version as well, and this one is quite better. The rum is subtle and the oak is smooth, and they blend quite well. Mouthfeel is the same as all the other versions.

Deep nutty brown color with orange highlights. Big off-white head that slowly fades away to a layer of bubbles with plenty of lacing. A peppery, woody aroma with hints of vanilla and rum. The same taste as there was aromas. A bit woodier than it smells, with a nice velvety sweet mouthfeel. This is way better than the other I&G I had. I like it.
