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!

Sweet taste, very light and smooth. The color is a dark amber, a little darker than their original beer. I really enjoy this one, definitely becoming one of my favorites.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2012 330ml bottle poured into my Innis & Gunn beer glass! Small off-white head quickly disappears. Zero lace! Aroma is definitely mix of coffee and rum. Beautiful brown-red ochre colour in the glass (Lovibond 23/24). Low to medium carbonation gives good mouth feel. Taste is certainly very sweet initially of rum, butterscotch and coffee flavours. Medium to full body. Not sure about the finish - its slightly bitter in a medicinal kind of way (not a hops way).

Smells like sugar cane adn the texture is similar to a thick dark rum. There’s some of the honey sweetness of good cane here as well but the body lacks substance. Some oakiness here as well. Bottle.

Cuso (8611) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle from rosenbergh, kiitos. Ruby color with small light beige Taste, caramel, dark berries, oak, vanilla, light bitterness in background. Woody bitter finish. Good.

On tap. Minimal head. Not noticing much of a nose. Dark sweet but not quite as cloying as molasses, good coffee flavor adds depth. very good winter type drink

Clear brown of color with a small beige head. A skunky aroma with sweets, caramel and weak spiced. A flavor of vegetables, sweets, rum, malt and caramel.

Pours clear dark brown with ruby highlight and a big tan but quickly fading head leaving little lacing. Toffee, malt and rum aroma. Taste is a little sweet and spicy with a woody finish.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
330ml bottle, 7.4% a/v Pours a dark, rich cola black. Nice tan head. Aroma is tremendously rich, fruity, and malty, with a bit of subtle spice. The taste is sublimely rich, smooth and malty. More like a rum with beer than beer conditioned in a rum barrel. This beer is vageuly like a spiced rum and coke, but subtly different and better,,, this beer is an absolute beauty! Rich mouthfeel and just a great sipper! Will be back to buy more for certain

Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
cola-like colour, slightly opaque, pours a thin head that settles to the side of the glass. the aromascape gives of sweet coconut with a honey side, while maintaining a wooden character with a low malty base, hinting towards rum or another stronger drink. not many strong things going on, but an interesting scape to explore. light, well balanced low sweetness supports the bitter sour base well, almost like the taste keeps bouncing back, leaning against the sweetness. light salt.. relies heavily on the sweetness but is not overly tacky or pushy. the alcohol comes out significantly more through the taste. the body is rather light but is backed up by the good balance of tastes and alcohol. the texture is slightly watery, but has a cotton-like, dry feel to it to save the feel. not much here to emphasize anything; just to make it work. The first time i tasted this beer, it was overly sweet with unpleasant coconut aroma all over the place. i do not know i it was simply a matter of the batch, experience, temperature.. but compared to this it was weak and all over the place. a different, "almost there" balanced beer with an idea. more character, depth, punch, strength could be used to make it even more complex but that is just my personal taste.

Pours deep reddish brown with off white head. Aroma dominated by vanilla rum. Flavor is also mostly rummy, yet nicely so.
