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!

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Rich dark brown colour, good head. Sweet spicy grassy malt aroma. Rum & malt flavour. A bit too strong sweet and sickly for my liking.

Well it started off smelling fruity,then smelt warmth/spicyness. Taste is same body taste as most Innus n Gunn I had. Taste boozy,citrus orange like on the fruity part with a hint of spicyness.A little much for me but worth trying out. cheer’s.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear amber pour with a thick beige head. Skunky nose (damn clear bottle!) with some malt. Malty and skunky flavor with a sweet and syrup rum finish. Get this stuff in a brown bottle and it might be tasty.

BillWyce (984) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2012
From notes: Poured reddish-amber with a thick, ivory-colored head. Sweet caramelly aroma, with notes of vanilla and spice. Medium-thick with a nice depth of flavor. Mild, malty sweet taste up front that gives way to a pleasing warming note of rum and vanilla in the finish.

BigBeer45 (1422) - Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle, this beer had a clear, bright red-brown pour with bronze color at the sides of the glass and made a three to four finger head of off-white and light tan colored bubbles, the effervescence looked to be medium or so, this beer left some spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle, the aromas were wood, faint vanilla, caramel, rum liquor and malt, there were flavors of wood, vanilla, some toasted malt, faint spice and rum, mouth feel was a little less than medium, some creaminess on the palate, a nice drink, the rum and wood stood out in this drink.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Pours a murky amber brown with little head. Smell is malt forward with hints of oak and sweetness. Taste is nutty with oak and rum, vanilla and some dark fruit accents, but watered down. Not bad but one was enough for me.

Dogbrick (11332) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Sample at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. This brew pours a dark amber-orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Oaky aroma with notes of dark malt and ripe fruit. Medium body with flavors of oaky vanilla, ripe fruit and earthy malt. The finish is sweet with the rum taste coming through in the end. The different elements don’t quite come together in the end. Just alright overall.

Alphadelic (2147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Beautiful chestnut colour with a dish-soap foamy head. Lightly spicy and weighted with vanilla and orange peel. Heaps of toffee on the nose and in the mouth, bringing a sweetness that dominates the whole experience. It is, however, not overbearing. The beer is surprisingly light and lacks any real kind of heat. There is the smallest hint of a traditional British hop in the dusty finish. Unique.
Earlier Rating: 11/1/2009 Total Score: 3.1
Pretty flat and malty on the nose. Nothing special. Plenty in the mouth though. Very relaxed but with heaps of delicious sweet but spicy rum flavours. Very old-school sailor style. I actually like the flavour that is brought out here. Very different. Not too delicate or culture but definitely different.
