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!

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

Gehbe (13) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 22, 2016
Look: Redish dark amber and clear. Medium creamy head, doesn’t last long though. Aroma: Oak, vanilla, some spicy and malty notes. Taste: Rather sweet, oaky vanilla mixed with maltines, very light bitterness on the finish. Palate: Medium body, quite creamy, some alcoholic warmth but not in excess. Overall: Nice beer, a tad too sweet for me, but that’s what I expect from scottish ales. The oak and spice notes provide a nice balance to the maltiness.

Many thanks to Eike for sharing this bottle! Smooth malty, nice wood, intense and sweetish. Wood, hints of rum, sweetish. Very dry with woody hints of rum. Interesting with a sweetish malty body.

Aus der Flasche von Händler des Vertrauens. Rotgolden im Glas mit instabiler Schaumkrone. Im Geruch und Geschmack deutlich nach Rumfass schmeckend. Endlich einmal, wo Anspruch und Realität korrespondieren.

Pours a copper color liquid with a thin head. Somewhat metallic aroma of roasted malt. Taste is rather flat, disapointing... will not buy again. Rather pour bear.
