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!

Deep dark brown color, small beige head; woody toffeish aroma with hints of vanill and citrus, rum, even slightly chocolate; flavor starts with kind of hot sweetness reminding me of the original Innis & Gunn and therefore, again, licorice powder (but you may disagree, however, I can’t describe the taste better) smoothening towards the finish and revealing notes of toffee, wood and rum; body is medium with quite high carbonation. I actually liked the original a bit better, but it doesn’t take anything away from this brew.

Aroma of somewhat malt, sweet/caramel, Vanilla and brown rum tones. Tast is light malty, but somewhat sweet/caramel with fruityness 9cherry & apple) with vanilla and light rum. A little bitter is coming up in the aftertaste. A nice combination but a little to sweet. Medium/full body.

Rum Finish 6.8% BBE FEB 18. Tumman ruskea kolan väri, mieto hapotus, niukka vaahto. Tuoksussa lievää vaniljaa, esanssia, viinaa. Suutuntuma ohut pahvinen esanssipommi, nopean ohut runko, jälkimaku keinotekoisen makeahko, ei mun makuun.

czlowiekwiadro (986) - POLAND - JUL 13, 2017
zapach niezbyt przyjemny, drewno, melasa, ale i gotowane warzywa i czosnek czai się gdzieś w tle, do tego lekka wanilia i plastelina. może kukurydza? kolor głębokiej miedzi, klarowny, ładny, wpadający w jasną czerwień. piana dość skąpa i raczej krótka, jasnobeżowa, stara się koronkować i zostawia małą warstwę. w smaku raczej wytrawne, ale nie wodniste, lekkie słody, karmel, trochę toffi, dużo drewna, dębu, wanilii, plasteliny, nuty rumu i przypraw, ładnie zgrane, choć subtelne. goryczka średnia, alkoholowo, przyprawowo ziołowa, krótka. nasycenie wysokie.

0.33l bottle. Malty aroma, caramel notes, light rum notes. Clear dark copper color, white head. Malty taste, caramel, rum notes, light alcohol notes, light sweet, light bitter. Full body, slick texture, soft carbonation and malty finish with caramel and rum notes. Ok.

Banzale (315) - FRANCE - JUL 11, 2017
Acheter à Auchan roncq (nord de france). Bouteille de 33cl. couleur brune avec de jolie reflet acajou/ruby et un brillance correct. mousse plutôt légère qui redescend rapidement. Au nez : c’est très aromatique , des notes boisée, canne à sucre, un peu d’epice et cannelle. En bouche : les malts caramel sont bien présents. Notes boisée très agréable et poignant. Notes épicé cannelle et sensation vanillé et sucré en milieu de bouche . Pas contre très peu de longueur et manque du corps . La robe s’estompe rapidement. Dommage
