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!

Dark amber pour with reddish hue and small creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, rum and oak. Taste of caramel, toffee, slight woodiness, tinge of rum and a slightly dry finish. This is best ice cold, pretty good interesting beer.

Tasting this right after tasting I&G Original. Dark red brown, clear, beige fading head. Aroma is comparable with Original, not much, just a distant vanilla and oak. Taste is a bit less of the vanilla and oak and a bit more rum. It’s got a better body and is a bit drier.

Bottle at Luxor Public House, Las Vegas. Pours clear brownish with a tan head. Aroma of rum, dark fruit, and sweet malt, with a sweet, somewhat boozy taste. Medium bodied and a tad syrupy.

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...

33 cl bottle @ Turtola. Rated on 03.09.2010
Vertical with Orginal & Triple Matured. This won the test.
Aroma has (surprisingly) rum, some vanilla and hints of toffee. Flavour has lots of rum, some woody notes, vanilla, toffee and hints of licorice. Good.

Benfi (692) - DENMARK - SEP 20, 2012
33cl bottle. Dark brown with dirty white head. Filtered. Nose : Alcohol , caramel , herbs and mountain honey notes. Tiramisu tart. Sip : Oily, low to medium density liquid. Low carbonation. Sweet and woody, alcohol taste. I confirm the tiramisu overall taste. Overall , I don’t enjoy aromatic beers. Interesting but nothing exciting.

dnstone (3404) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours a ruby-brown color with a nice white head that settles off completely. Aroma is like rum and wood chips, quite nice. Smooth and rum-boozy off the bat, then rather sweet, approaching a barleywine flavor.
