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!

11.2 oz. bottle. My buddy grabbed a 4 pack of this from the Beverage King. Rum is one of the few hard types of liquor I drink, so Im excited for this one! English pint shows dark, nearly transparent brown/ lots of ruby highlights, with thin white head. Different nose of skunky oak, cane sugar and rum for sure. Flavor has lots of vanilla, butterscotch and gentle spice. Lots of malt. Soft Co2. Funny thing is, it tastes like a rum and Coke. Did I mix a Captain and Coke here?? LOL. Medium body and an interesting sipping beer. Makes a good after dinner brew. ABV is non- existent. I & G made me want to try a few more of their oak aged brews with this one.

Une bouteille achete Toronto. Une bire plutt rouge qui se prsente avec une feuille de mousse. Un nez de sucre et de caramel avec des parfums de rhum et des effluves de fruits. Ma fille trouve des fraises et des cerises tandis que je trouve des parfums de raisins pics. Des saveurs domines par la douceur. Des saveurs de rhum sucr avec un retour fruit tout aussi sucr. Une bouche presque moyenne avec un ptillement convenable. Une texture toute en souplesse. Une finale balaye par les malts et par des extraits de rhum. Bref, des flaveurs intressantes qui ne sont pas renversantes.

Bottle. Looks almost like a dark rum with a nice flat tan head. Love the slight alcohol taste. Really nice beer. I can pick out the oak aging as well. Maybe more in rum barrels and less in oak. I would drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
