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!

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a clear and dark copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, rum and notes of alcohol. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and a low level of carbonation. Overall an average beer.

Foffern (1715) - Bod, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at home. In the glass the beer has a clear nut-brown colour with a pretty big light beige head. The aroma is characterized by sweet malt, caramel, and some roast and alcohol. The taste is quite sweet with a touch of caramel, salty licorice, sweet biscuits, and a little bit roast again. The beer feels quite soft, smooth and silky in the mouth, and holds very little bitterness. A very easy-drinking beer. It appears to me as a sweeter type of British ale.

Stt borostyn sznnel ragyog poharunkban ez a sr, aminek tetejn egy kzepes mretű, srgs sznű hab cscsl, ami elg hamar nyugovra tr s csak egy vkony lepedőt hagy maga utn. Illata intenzven rumos, mazsols, vanlis, karamells s igen malts s tlgyes. Ezek a jegyek az zben is nagyon szpen jnnek s valahogy igen kiegyenslyozottnak tűnnek, szpen tmogatjk egymst. Nagyszerűen rezni a rumot, sok mazsolt, vanlit, s a tlgyhords aromkat is. Kzepesen testes s alig sznsavas, az alkohol szpen elrejtve maradt az alkohol. Utze karamells, gymlcss s desks, enyhn szraz s lassan cseng le.

Voodoo (596) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Pours from a clear bottle with the look of root beer with a quickly dissipating head. Rum, slight raisin and oak hit hard with a lingering bit of alcohol in a full bodied taste and just slightly oily finish.

humlelala (1348) - DENMARK - MAY 5, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2012 (33 cl bottle from a supermarket) Pours clear, dark copper with medium, tan head that fades quickly. Some lace. Initial aroma is a bit skunky with buttery notes, followed by pleasant, malty notes with smooth hints of oak and what might well be spiced rum. Medium carbonation, oily texture with a medium body, lively carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Taste is mildly bitter upfront with some brown sugar impressions. If it werent skunky it would probably be good on an autumn evening in a pub. Girlfriend says: "Its nearly fizzy."

Nilz (506) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours Clear but so dark with red tinge, head is pale magnolia, last although thins. The nose is rum and a spiciness. The taste is a vanilla, oak and rum taste and spice fruits, general sweetness. Medium, almost light body considering the taste. The carbonation fine. A glass of ale to savour its unconventionality!

Bottle. Pours a thin dark brown with little head. Some mild smokey flavor at the first taste that fades as you drink it. OK overall, but not memorable.

Good smooth english ale, strong with a rich taste. I like this. There is a hint of spiced rum which is pretty cool. Good ale.
