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!

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2012
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fizzy head that was fully diminishing with no lacing to speak of. The aroma was quite intense with a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of vanilla, rum, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a light hint of toffee. The taste was moderately sweet and malty with notes of caramel, vanilla and dark fruit throughout with a nice cask presence and a mild rum alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with a mild boozy taste that faded slowly off the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a slight syrupy texture and a mildly soft carbonation. Overall a fantastic tasting brew with a good sweet rum flavor and a strong malty presence...

Clear deep Amber colored under a thin spotty ivory head. Lovely aroma of lightly spiced rum, woody oak, dark malt and bright toasted English muffin. Crisp and delightfully playful flavor featuring deep woody and semisweet toasty malts, lightly spiced rum and a kiss of whiskey, no boozy presence though, just woody and semisweet and a kiss of English toffee and bready malts. Nice.

The beer pour clear brown with a good sized beige head. The aroma has toffee, caramel, toasty malt, plastic and sweetness. It has a medium body with a moderate amount of soft carbonation. The taste has toffee scottish ale malt, sweetness, some oak and and bit of earthy spice. This one is okay, but think I prefer the others I’ve had from this brewery better.

Fules (792) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 8, 2016
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, sötét réz szín. Nádcukros, rumos illat. Édes, karamelles, vaníliás, nádcukros-rumos ízvilág, halvány aszalt gyümölcsös beütéssel. Testes, enyhén szénsavas és keserű. Nagyon finom, egy picit lehetne szárazabb.

CObiased (317) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2016
11.2 oz bottle - my bottle reads 6.8 ABV & rum aged. Nice appearance of clear red plum/ruby ale with a thin off white head. Layered malt goodness - fruit cake, ripe fruit, wood tannin, herbaceousness & hearty bread. A hint too sweet

kaserov (174) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2016
Color marrón con reflejos rojizos y/o anaranjados según le dé la luz. Capa de espuma de un blanco sucio, casi marrón, de un dedo de grosor. Escasa carbonatacion. Olor a madera, malta, algo de licor (muy mínimo), especias, caramelo... Sabor dulce, robusto, con regusto final a licor (no diré ron, porque no soy de beber ron y sería columpiarme). Muy interesante pero lejos de mi gusto personal en cuanto a cervezas. Aun así, la recomiendo al que esté interesado en este tipo de híbridos.

Wersja 6,8%. Przyjemne. Aromat nieciekawy, ale resztą nadrabia. Cena 4,99 zł też robi swoje.

mice (801) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Väriltään tumma, coca-colan värinen, hyvin heikko vaahto, kupliva olut. Haju makeahko, ehkä hivenen toffeinen. Maussa hieman rommia, toffeeta, ei kuitenkaan hirveän vahva olut maultaan, vaikka prosentteja onkin. Hyvä, mutta odotuksiin nähden pettymys.
