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!

Sjohnh (724) - 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.

shorlin (721) - St. Johnís, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 23, 2008
Pours a thick deep reddish-brown. Little head. Mild lacing. Looks pretty good. Spicy fruity aroma. Also smells a little like store brand cola. Not the good stuff, but the cheap stuff. Flavor is really not what I was expecting. It is a lot like drinking a rum and cheap cola that someone watered down with beer. But thats not all bad. It is interesting and drinkable. Palate is smooth, a little thick. Could be fuller. Overall, I willl take it and enjoy.

Frothmeister (717) - 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.

demmbonz (716) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Very dark amber brown. Odd aroma. Only very slightly skunky. Little booze in the nose. Clear bottle. Very sweet oak and vanilla taste with some rum and spice on the finish. Interesting brew.

BBHansen (712) - KÝge, 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 (705) - - 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.

Moebbels (705) - FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Body has a nice clear amber color with lots of bubbles clinging to the glass walls. The white head disappear quickly. Nose has loads of sweet vanilla accompanied by dark syrup and coconut notes. Taste has a boozy rummy sweetness to it with a short bitter finish. Carbonation is quite high and the palate oddly thin-feeling. The alcoholic rum-flavour is a bit overpowering but the sweet bouquet is nice.
