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!

A dark, mahogany pour with reddish edges and a lightly tan head. The aroma has sugary caramel, oak, and some earthy notes. The medium body has a slightly sticky texture with soft carbonation. It has a sweet taste with rum flavor and slight warmth in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2014 Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Aroma is pure Jamaica brown rum. Taste is exactly the same. Rum, sweetness, whiskey, vanilla and rum raisins. I really like it but I also like whiskey. Guess this beer will be kinda hard for a person that doesn’t like spirits.

Bottle shared with McTapps. An unforgettable meeting. Optic is like a darker Newcastle brown with a nice bug head. Nose is whiskey. Taste with aroma of honey, whiskey and vanilla. Sweetish beer. Maybe for fans, but now I am one.

Bottle pours deep amber, fast settling head, rum and oak and a little malt on the nose, rich, slightly sweet palate with vanilla, caramel toffee and a faint hint of pear, then more oak and rum. Nicely balanced.

RB says this is my rating no 3800. Clear glass bottle, pours a beautiful tawny color with a rocky tan head. Nose of rum and oak barrel, a little vanilla and whisky-like spice. Taste much the same, a little spicier with more alcohol memory and a pleasant slow-warm. Vibrantly fruity with a solid but lesser toffee malt base. Medium body, a little fizzy at first but smooths out. These last few I’ve had by I&G have been all about the barrelwork, and it’s hard to tell how good they are at the ales underneath.

0,33 flaske delt med medbrygger Ovesen: nydelig dyp, nesten rød farge og flott beige skum. Lukter ikke særlig rom,heller vanilje og lys karamell (fudge). Assosiasjonene til rom finner jeg i smaken og varmen.I tillegg kandiserte og tørkede frukter og litt krydder. Et deilig øl som jeg må kjøpe flere av.

glassware: Innis and Gunn...occasion: Shark Tank retruns to TV!...aroma: rummy, for certain, with its trademark I&G whisky maltiness... intriguing as with all their brews...appearance:cognac-bodied, thinly headed with an unassuming white rim...palate: thick, soda-like fizzy body that has a syrup drip...taste: definitely vanilla and fruity esters combine wth an aggressive, bold strength...overall: a challenging brew that doesn’t quiet have the spive that the bottle proclaims; it is noticeably alcoholic in its exhale
