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!

Innis & Gunn have a way of making their beers resemble soda pop. For one, the bottle looks like a high-end rootbeer bottle and for two the beers resemble soda pop in both superficial and emaningfrul ways. This one in particular is just a slightly lighter shade than rootbeer and pours w/ a large bubbled and quickly dissipating head. The nose is sort of a musty toffee-ish flavor but the flavor has a sweet anise spicy character that resembles rootbeer to a noticeable degree. It’s good overall, I would say, and there is real beer character but it’s dominated by caramel sweetness and barrel character. I like the stuff I just don’t know if it’s quite what I look for in a beer, barrel aged or otherwise.

Flaske: Lys flaske brun øl med et let skumhoved. Duften er igen makro. Smagen er langt bedre med en god del rom. Ikke fantastisk.

Bottle. Deep amber with a thin head. Aroma of fruit, bread and rum. Flavour is sweet, with the warming rum feeling. Palate is dry.

Bottle gifted by the next door neighbor - many thanks! Easy toffee and caramel in the nose, quite sugary, slight aftertaste of rum(?). A nice beer.

bigdave341 (6) - USA - OCT 7, 2011 does not count
11.2 oz bottle fizzy white head no lacing smells like sugary sweet but definitely rum notes. Taste like brown sugar with vary little rum but all in all a good beer would drink it again

annunz123 (945) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bread, malt, and a little peat in the aroma. Pretty strong rum flavor, along with caramel and vanilla. Finish is a little harsh, but then again I think rum has a pretty harsh finish. Good, but a little less subtle than I expected and/or hoped

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear, dark ruby red with orange highlights, with a medium light tan head. Aromas of rum, vanilla, oak, some sweet malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet rum and oaky vanilla, slightly bitter, with notes of sugar cane, toffee, and vanilla in the finish. Easy-drinking; medium carbonation and medium/full body. Pretty tasty. [817]

Bottle at Rogue Tavern, pours an amber/brown color. Medium head, medium carbonation. Huge "barrel aged" flavor, togh to distinguish the rum. A nice alcohol burn, especially for only 7.4%ABV. Very nice brew.
