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."

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!

abstractbeer (241) - NORWAY - NOV 8, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Dark brown color, almost one cm offwhite head. Aroma is coffee, red fruits, licorice. Sweet taste, with flavors of licorice, red berries, nuts, sweet caramel, hints of bananas and pears, some spicy notes. Some coconut and other nuts in the aftertaste. Quite full mouthfeel. Too sweet for me, almost cloyingly so, but apart from that I like it.

Aurelius (5030) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2011
LIghtly powdered, muted vanilla ale aroma. Clear bottle, good label, clear tea-colored beer with a tight, almost white head which fades quickly. Sugary, spiced rum and wood flavors. Flat, non-effervescent mouthfeel. A bitter rum aftertaste, like a cocktail that wasn’t quite mixed properly. Medium to slightly light body. An interesting excursion, but it just ended up being average, and I wouldn’t want more than one or two. ABC Liquors, Betton.

marcus (9011) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 3, 2011
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours light brown with a nice tan head and a smoky oaky aroma. There is a slightly sweet rum-laden caramel malt flavor with an alcohol trail. The rum doesn’t really help the flavor much, but does make it a more interesting brew.
