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!

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

The liquid in the bottle looked more like a cherry coke or something similar than beer. Poured into an English pint glass. Aroma seemed off, maybe hints of rum barrel? Even bready. But, this was an interesting brew, rum flavored, alcohol, balanced with flavors of vanilla, oak. Decent. I wouldnít buy a cse of this brew, but interesting to try.

Clear bottle from nike, thanks bud! Reminds me of a new castle bottle for some reason. Nice brownish pour, just a tad of that pilsner noble hops aroma. First taste is medium kick then.....shocking blue ring dang doo! Yes, each swig is this evolution, fools you into into taking a big swig then its sudden volatile nose hair curling apex and mouth full of high alky brew; well, at least until the anticeptic effect mulls over your taste buds and olfactory. Gradually however, it becomes more acceptable and you caníst stop sipping, like not being able to ignore a fire right across the street. Donít get too close, might burn the cilia on your forehead. Yez, not as bad as I thought it would be, goes down fairly smooth, more smooth than cheap american ice beer, eh?! Even begins to get milder as I get towards the bottom of the bottle; I wonder why? Iíll tell you this, I like the rum flavor barrels better than the whiskey flavored ones. Towards the end, seems to get just a tad cloying, but in a good way. Hey B, thanks for the chance to try this, otherwise out of my reach, beer. In the summer time when the weather is high, you can jump right up and touch the sky, when the weatherís right, you got innis, you got gunner on your mind. Have a drink, have a drive (golf) and go out and see what you can find.

Very dark amber brown. Odd aroma. Only very slightly skunky. Little booze in the nose. Clear bottle. Very sweet oak and vanilla taste with some rum and spice on the finish. Interesting brew.

Bottle. Deep brown color. Smells of booze and vanilla. Raisen..fig and malt. Really good example of a oak aged english pale ale. Very good
