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!

6.8% version. Dark wood colour with a small white head leaving tendrils of lacing. Medium body, slightly oily and a nice bit of carbonation - I think the suggestions of it being watery are a bit harsh. Aroma of spice and brown bread. Tastes of malt, rum and banana. Nice.

Grabbed this because it was on discount. 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Iím not a fan of scotch ales, but I do love rum and barrel aged beers so I figured Iíd give it a try. A - Pours a dark red/purple color. Looks almost black until its head up to the light. An aggressive pour yielded a good size head which lasted only a minute or so. Decent lacing/retention. S - Sweet malt, vanilla, and oak. There is slight hints of rum, but overall I just smell standard oak. T - Vanilla, oak, and malts blend together to form a somewhat one dimensional taste profile. The aftertaste is buttery and smooth, the high abv is hidden really well. Not a ton of flavor, but it is pleasant. O - I did somewhat enjoy this beer. It wasnít anything spectacular, but it had some nice flavors and I found it fairly easy drinking despite the big alcohol content. I was excited to see a rum aged beer, but I think Iíd pass if I came across some more.

Pours a copper colour with a creamy head. The aroma is dominated by rum. The taste is rather sweet with notes of toffee, vanilla, spices but mostly rum. Some bitterness, but the finish is mostly rum. A sweetish strong ale which is not unpleasant, but rather one dimensional.

11.2oz bottle, best before Feb 2012. Served at cellar temperature.

Pours clear red/copper with a two finger off white head that leaves some bubbly walls of lacing and holds a creamy cap.

Aroma is bread, toast, some caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, some raisins and dark fruits, a bit of herbal hops. Good strength.

Flavor is sweet rum, vanilla, caramel, toffee, raisins, a touch of earthy hops, and a hint of alcohol on the finish. Rather sweet, overall.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with good carbonation.

A tasty and unique brew and Iíll have to check out the regular version sometime in the near future. Boo to the clear bottles, though.

Draught. Surprising light expression of oak and booze aging. The navy rum flavor and smell are distinct as is the oak tanin on the palate. And the booze is not hidden. But somehow that is not all in your face like so many imperial stouts. Really pleasant for a change. I get alcohol flamed bananas vanilla and coconut or maybe i am just remembering my last painkiller! The aroma is clean malty. Flavor is very sweet. The texture is smooth and it finishes cool and fast with little carbonation in the palate. Pretty enjoyable as a ípainkillerí. ;)

0.33L bottle. Rum essence and caramel aroma. Clear brown color with small hat on top. Toffee, bread, wood, light whiskey, some spice flavors. Not for me.

Frothmeister (727) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. Heavy aromas of candied sugar, apple, dried fruit, alcohol. The taste is pretty complex. Lots of dried fruit, with alcohol, faint oak, and some smoke, faint rum / molasses, in the finish.
