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."

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 dark brown color. Smell is of rum. Taste is rum, alcohol, oak, a touch of malts. Overall not a bad beer, but I just don’t get it.

Bottle from a supermarket. Family tasty no aroma but a nice gentle taste. Not much rum though.

Här var det vanilj för nästan hela slanten, både i aromen och smaken. I smaken hittas också en viss bärsmak (smultron?), och i både smak och arom hittas romen. Svagt skum som snart lägger sig. Rödbrun öl. Serverad i konjakskupa.

2010 review. Dark red brown colour with small head. Aroma and flavour is vanilla, rum, boozy. Might retest again.

12 oz bottle from The Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Probably lucky to have found this just sitting on the shelf at the Hive -- have to go back to get the rest of the dusty remainders. The combo of rum and beer is perfect and produces a very smooth mouth feel and swallowing. The rum is strong, but balanced, and lingers on the palate for just the right amount of time. Hurry up and get one before they’re gone!

Smells almost coffee like and malty smooth. Jonathan’s favorite, its very smooth with a lot of sweet rum flavors, and it’s not heavy or dry, it very light and refreshing.

Poured from a bottle at Taco Macs. Great aroma up front. Small but persistent head. Good rum and oakey tastes.

Bottle poured into glass. Dark brown color, murky and cloudy. The aroma doesn’t give off much rum but the flavor is creamy and rummy. Very easy to drink.

Bottle, had last night, brownish color. Aroma was very impressive with awesome boozy oaked wood tones. I couldn’t stop sniffing this beer. Nice smooth taste, slick texture. Malty flavor. Really enjoyed.

Bottle. Mahogany pour tan head. Aroma is sweet toasted malt and rum, vanilla, raisin, woody and dried fruit. Medium oily body. Booze well hidden. Virtually no discernable hop character. Balanced and clean finish. Generally pleasant although quite sweet. I’d appreciate it more if it had a more complex wood/smoke complexity.
