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!

auburn brown colour but kinda clear. mostly beer aroma with caramel and toast but a slight hint of rum and a woodsy note. Medium bodied brew but has a quick flavour profile. Sweet caramel and a slight hint of heat. better than their other brews but still not so impressive.

This is an amazing beer. Very much a sipper, on the sweet side, but very nice. Hard to get, had to go to Canada for this one.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagans place. Thanks troubles. Clear dark amber-brown. Aroma of malt, honey, caramel, coconut, vanilla, some fruitiness, rum and alcohol. Sweet alcoholic flavor, honey-ish and candy-ish, with coconut and some fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Not my thing.

Pours deep chestnut with a firm, medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has oak, definitely some spiced rum, light roasted, mildly boozy, some plums and raisins. Medium, light prickly carbonation, fine dryish and oily palate. Flavour has liqourice, spiced rum, mild oak. Caramel and toasted malts. Fair dryness in the end. Quite elegant.

Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget.
Pours coppery chestnut with a small, creamy and kinda fizzy off-white head. Aroma has mild dried fruits, toasted caramel, mild toffee and a mild oaky dryness. Low to medium carbonation, kinda light mouthfeel with good dryness. Flavour is quite oaky, nice character from the rum, toffee and good caramel base. Perhaps a bit of oaky astringency as well. Fine beer.

330ml bottle, I cant stand brewers offering their wares in smaller bottles to hide an often over inflated price - I aways mark down for that reason! Aroma - it gives you pretty much what you would expect - rum, oak, wood and spice notes. Visually its quite a dark beer with a all too quickly disapearing head. But taste wise it si a superb 1 off ale: its surprisingly sweet (esp in comparison to its sister Oak aged) which gives way to a smokiness and Oak followed by the sweet rum aftertaste. A lovely beer in bottles THAT ARE TOO SMALL!!!

11.2 oz bottle to snifter. Looks okay; dark and syrupy with very little carbonation and thin lacing. Smells sweet and malty. Tastes okay; you can pick up the rum, but the base beer doesnt stand out. Mouthfeel is average. Yesteryears rum barreled beer.
