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!

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2012
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 (400) - 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.

bu11zeye (12527) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2012
(11.2oz bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, oak, rum, vanilla, golden raisins, and cinnamon. Flavor of honey, oak, caramel, and toffee.

puboflyons (2873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2012
From the 25 ouncer. It pours a darker amber with loads of off-white, creamy head and upwardly bound carbonation bubbles moving nice and slow. The short deScription of the aroma is clean. But in more detail there is a mellow caramel sweetness, brown sugar, and a tick of hard liquor (rum). The body is medium to bold. The taste is incredibly sweet for a clear bottle of beer aged in rum barrels. I am always concerned about clear bottles but nothing offensive here. There is a vaguely boozy finish but all in all it is sweet and malty.

keanex (1695) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2012
From an 11.2 ounce bottle with no freshness date. Poured into a Sam Smith’s pint glass.

A: Clear brown with minimal carbonation activity, very little tan head that quickly dissipates.

S: Really oaky with hints of rum and brown nuts, very slight dark fruits. It smells good but I’m not too keen on it.

T: Tastes lot like a brown ale with nuts making the flavor with oak flavors through out. Slight spices and a slight rum flavor. The oak flavor is subtle but takes the palate overall leaves a cigar type taste when all is said and done.

M: Medium bodied, with light carbonation.

O: There’s a lot going on here, it’s worth a shot if you find a single of it. I wouldn’t buy a 4 pack, but it’s good enough to buy once.

Cybercat (4637) - Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Strong aroma is rather sweet and has a definite overtone of rum-soaked wood, as well as caramel and malty notes. It pours a beautiful clear mahogany with a fairly thick and fluffy pale tan head. Sublime flavor has tones of rum, caramel, malt and wood, and is rather sweet but not cloying. Full-bodied, syrupy texture has just a little fizz, though. A truly satisfying beer to be sipped and savored.
