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!

Flesje gekocht in Schotland. Bruinrode kleur, aardig wat kraag dat snel verdwijnt. Ruikt muffig en licht naar rum. De smaak is vrij zoet, rum, caramel, bitterkoekjes. Niet heel veel body maar best te drinken.

Brandman (2537) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Mahogany body, small white head. Aroma has huge sugary butterness, rum ia present and some caramel behind the first scent. Flavour turns nutty and buttery with rum notes all over. Underlying there is layer of fruitiness. Warming and really much different things going on in the beer. Not sure if I like em all.

Garrold (3337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle. A quid, from the local offy. Clear, dark copper colour. Messy, thin, pale tan head. Toffee malts. Mint rock. Vine fruits. Taste is sugary sweet. Some nasty, burnt sugar bitterness. Claggy mouthfeel. Artificial sweetener on the finish. Interesting to note the rating disparity with these beers. I’m in the, "I’m glad I only paid a quid" category.

Ale ambrée ronde à l’anglaise et rhum : du boisé de la vanille, du sucre, du biscuit, caramel. Les deux juxtaposé.Sans peu de chose d’autre.Donc assez binaire. Pas mauvais cependant.

En besvikelse även denna Innis&Gunn. Enligt beskrivningen är det den söta och kryddiga smaken som ska göra dess finish och därmed är omtyckt. Men jag känner att just den söta smaken är det som drar ner betyget, detta öl hade annars varit medelbra. Och någon kryddig smak finns då inte. ~ Even this Innis&Gunn is a disappointment. According the deScription it is the sweet and spicy taste that does it’s finish and by that does it popular. But the sweet taste is what does my low grade on this Innis&Gunn., othervise it has bin middle-okey

brewtalita (128) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 14, 2016
Dark amber/light brown. High and stable beige head. Aroma vanilla, oak wood and strong herbal finish. Palate watery, carbonation high but quickly dissipates. Taste unfolds slowly. Begins with honey and chocolate and lends itself to a rum body. Nicest part on this is aftertaste - coconut, vanilla,banana and light hoppy finish. Definitely rum-a-like. Interesting beer.

Nice almost ruby in colour. The rum certainly comes through in the taste. Very little aroma and very clean finish. A personal favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very little aroma, some vanillins. Brilliantly clear dark copper, white head with fine bubbles. Medium sweetness, low bitterness, with the rum definitely coming through. Full mouthfeel, with the fine bubbles contributing as well. Finish is medium dry and clean.
