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!

Frothmeister (709) - 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.

There’s very little beer here and as I only ever write about beer I’m a little stuck on what to say. In these moments I like to turn to our great colleague, beer advocate extraordinaire, Mr Hank Rollins, who said this about some of the lesser writers on here... Jealous cowards try to control. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. They distort what they say. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. Try and stop what we do. Rise above, when they can’t do it themselves. We are tired of your abuse. Try and stop us, it’s no use. Society’s arms of control. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. Think they’re smart, can’t think for themselves. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. Laugh at us behind our backs. I find satisfaction in what they lack. We are tired of your abuse. Try to stop us, it’s no use. We are born with a chance. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. I am gonna have my chance. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. We are tired of your abuse. Try to stop us, it’s no use. Rise above. Rise above. Rise above. We’re gonna rise above. We’re gonna rise above. We’re gonna rise above.

Sjohnh (703) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
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.

Milter (699) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 Une couleur ambrée assez foncé (caramel brûlé) la mousse et de couleur plâtre et se dissipe tranquillement Nez on va trouver des arômes de amende vanille caramel au beurre salé Embouche on va sentir la vanille abondamment (cela vient du rhum bien sûre!!!) va aussi sentir des saveurs d’amaretto ! C’est une bière qui manque un peu de corps. Le taux d’alcool est peut-être un peu trop faible...

BBHansen (698) - Køge, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2014
bottle @ friends. Appearance: pours dark amber (some sedimentation) with low short lived off-white head with limited lacing. Aroma/taste: caramel, cream, toffee, wood, rum and some fruity notes. Palate: low to average carbonation, full body, distinct caramel sweetness, low bitterness, long duration and an oily texture. Overall: very nice strong ale

Cimbasso (698) - - DEC 7, 2014
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.

Benfi (692) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark brown with dirty white head. Filtered. Nose : Alcohol , caramel , herbs and mountain honey notes. Tiramisu tart. Sip : Oily, low to medium density liquid. Low carbonation. Sweet and woody, alcohol taste. I confirm the tiramisu overall taste. Overall , I don’t enjoy aromatic beers. Interesting but nothing exciting.

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2012
The beer smells of vanilla and sweet rum. The beer is a beautiful red brown with a small cream head. The taste is sweet rum and vanilla. Thick and very smooth.

Not much nose to speak of but nice drinking overall. Slight rum flavor with a clean finish. A bit of alcohol taste as it goes down.
