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!

Bottled 330ml. Nice drinkability. Not the best offering from the oak aged beer series in my opinion. Some potato sneaking in.
Earlier Rating: 3/14/2011 Total Score: 3.6
Bottled 33cl. Demerara, oak and caramel showing up in the nose. Sweet. Patato and mocha sneaking in. Very low bitterness. Remarkably smooth. Not much carbonation. Residual sugars in the finish.

nearbeer (4992) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2012
33 cl. poured into an I&G stem glass. Dark rum color with a sticky cobweb of foam. Nose is sweet - bananas foster, vanilla and maybe a hint of oak. Flavor is the same with just a touch of spice, earthy potato, and wood on the finish to provide the slightest bit of drying. Medium body is smooth, but way too sweet. OK dessert sipper, but there are many better.

Sweet deep aroma with a slight spiritness to it, has rum in its aftertaste.

dogbomb (1156) - ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep bronze with little head. Im a big fan of the Innis & Gunn Oak Aged - so I was looking forward to this one. Not disappointed at all. The same Oaky earthiness on this with the Rum really punching through to create a sweetness. Spicy toffee notes and caramel touches make this dance on the tongue like a slowly melting candy. Refreshingly sweet and tasty without being too sickly.

Definite oak in aroma and taste. Thin body and amber color. Modest head. Clear bottle was a negative.

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2012
Pours a transparent dark orange, sparse head that dissipates quickly. High carbonation. Looks like root beer. Aroma: Very pungent. Smells a bit foul, but strongly of oak and rum. Caramel. butterscotch. Palate: medium bodied, syrupy, oily. Smooth finish. Taste: Very sweet. Can taste the rum. Not bad.

Bottle @ home. Aroma is candy like sweetness, some malt and liquorice. Flavour is sweet malt, liquorice, red fruit, touch of smoke, coconutty wood and rum. Very nice.

Pretty ruby red with a small head. The aroma is candy sweet with some vanilla and fruit and a hint of rum. The flavor is the same. Very nice but just a bit too sweet for me. Save it to enjoy with dessert.
