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!

Pours a brownish ruby red with a medium slowly dissipating off white head. Aroma is of sweet rum, caramel malt with a bit of sweet alcohol esters. Taste is sweet rum flavor and alcohol, brown sugar, toffee and caramel. Palate is a medium to full body, smooth and sweet mouth feel, with moderate carbonation. Finish is sweet caramel, rum barrel flavor, brown sugar, toffee and some dry sweet alcohol ending. Overall a bit on the sweet side by a good flavorful and enjoyable brew.

Special aroma and taste. May be because it is stored in oak barrels. Ously difficult to say what I think about this beer. Okay it is to drink anyway. The aftertaste is a little time left.

Pours a dark translucent mahogany with almost no head. Muted aroma of spring rain. Taste of honey brown sugar flowers and hint of rum. A dessert beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Appearance: clear, dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma: rich with caramel, vanilla, rum, and a bit of spice. Taste: boozy and sweet, with flavors of toffee, caramel, roasted spiced nuts, vanilla, and a hint of smoky wood. Finish: smooth, rummy and sweet. Notes: Lovely beer. Rich without being cloying; sweet but not overpowering, boozy and oaky but not too much so; complex yet somehow simple. Very nice with a bread pudding.

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.

2.8
rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Style et résumé: Strong Ale qui a vieillie 57 jours en fût de rhum construit de chêne américain sans grand intérêt.
Comment: Bouteille transparente de 330ml achetée en Ontario.
Description: Bière cuivrée foncée qui ne mousse pas. Le nez est sur le bois, beaucoup de bois. Le sucre transperce la masse boisée mais difficilement. En bouche le bois domine, il y a du rhum certes mais derrière tout ce fût de chêne. La finale est sur le sucre avec un côté piquant d’alcool.
Note: 5+/10

This is a beautifully done beer, very smooth finish. The flavour is just amazing. The kick is pretty good too! Definitely one of my favorites.
