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!

En besvikelse även denna Innis&Gunn. Enligt beskrivningen är det den söta och kryddiga smaken som ska göra dess finish och därmed är omtyckt. Men jag känner att just den söta smaken är det som drar ner betyget, detta öl hade annars varit medelbra. Och någon kryddig smak finns då inte. ~ Even this Innis&Gunn is a disappointment. According the deScription it is the sweet and spicy taste that does it’s finish and by that does it popular. But the sweet taste is what does my low grade on this Innis&Gunn., othervise it has bin middle-okey

brewtalita (227) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 14, 2016
Dark amber/light brown. High and stable beige head. Aroma vanilla, oak wood and strong herbal finish. Palate watery, carbonation high but quickly dissipates. Taste unfolds slowly. Begins with honey and chocolate and lends itself to a rum body. Nicest part on this is aftertaste - coconut, vanilla,banana and light hoppy finish. Definitely rum-a-like. Interesting beer.

Nice almost ruby in colour. The rum certainly comes through in the taste. Very little aroma and very clean finish. A personal favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very little aroma, some vanillins. Brilliantly clear dark copper, white head with fine bubbles. Medium sweetness, low bitterness, with the rum definitely coming through. Full mouthfeel, with the fine bubbles contributing as well. Finish is medium dry and clean.

Moolesen (470) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Rwd with almost no head. Strong nose of wood, vanilla and rum spices which also is present in the taste. Despite the reasonable strong taste, it has a rather short finish.

Gylden brun klar med lavt beige skum. Lukter eik, vanilje og noe karamell. Søtlig lett brent smak, vanilje og karamel. Søtlig avslutning

.33l pour from refrigerated bottle into wine glass. Translucent, ruby-brown, light head. Soap, brown bread, cherry on the nose. Thin body, smooth. Taste is slightly fruity, some spice, hint of woodiness. Much lighter than I would have expected for a 7% barrel-aged beer.

Thranemeister (28) - DENMARK - DEC 22, 2015
First impression is RUM! Amazing aroma of rum and caramel. Reminds me of whiskey aswell. Very red clear colour. Super surreal experience. The smell of rum and charred oak casks masks the taste, which might only be a bit boring malty.

Not as good as the "Original" for me. This sweet and spicy beer is a good winter ale, if they put the word Christmas on the label it wouldn’t be out of place.
