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!

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 Ive had from this brewery better.

CObiased (403) - 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 (376) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2016
Color marrn con reflejos rojizos y/o anaranjados segn le d la luz. Capa de espuma de un blanco sucio, casi marrn, de un dedo de grosor. Escasa carbonatacion. Olor a madera, malta, algo de licor (muy mnimo), especias, caramelo... Sabor dulce, robusto, con regusto final a licor (no dir ron, porque no soy de beber ron y sera columpiarme). Muy interesante pero lejos de mi gusto personal en cuanto a cervezas. Aun as, la recomiendo al que est interesado en este tipo de hbridos.

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

mice (868) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Vriltn tumma, coca-colan vrinen, hyvin heikko vaahto, kupliva olut. Haju makeahko, ehk hivenen toffeinen. Maussa hieman rommia, toffeeta, ei kuitenkaan hirven vahva olut maultaan, vaikka prosentteja onkin. Hyv, mutta odotuksiin nhden pettymys.

Pours dark ruby red with small white head. Faint aroma. Lovely flavour. Sweet fruity barley and some rum. Toffee and vanilla present
