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!

Bottle from indigo yard in Edinburgh. Nose is pretty rum-y, liccorice, cough syrup, honey. Palate is rum cough syrup, honey, wheat. Weird, like the other English strong ale I tried.

AssKicker (455) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUN 9, 2017
Couleur ambrée, mousse correcte, nez sur le boisé. Légèrement sucrée, assez ronde, boisée également en bouche sans y aller violemment sur le Bourbon. Plaisant mais rien de foufou.

Bottle, Innis & Gunn Rum Finish 6.8%. Color: In between ruby and copper, dense cream head. Taste: Pretty complex taste, hard to describe.

Rustig biertje met geen opdringerige smaak, je proeft de rum heel licht, zeker niet bitter, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very original flavour with sweet tastes like chocolate and rum. Brown colour and light foam. Although the taste is original it doesn’t give a feeling of drinking beer.

bigcat03 (316) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2017 Pours a copper color with a big tan head. Aroma is very odd...rum? Almost smells skunked. Initial taste is oak, rum, and roasted malt. Aftertaste is dominated by rum. Palate is watery. Not great. Drain pour.
