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!

Dogbrick (12936) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Sample at Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. This brew pours a dark amber-orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Oaky aroma with notes of dark malt and ripe fruit. Medium body with flavors of oaky vanilla, ripe fruit and earthy malt. The finish is sweet with the rum taste coming through in the end. The different elements don’t quite come together in the end. Just alright overall.

Alphadelic (2235) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Beautiful chestnut colour with a dish-soap foamy head. Lightly spicy and weighted with vanilla and orange peel. Heaps of toffee on the nose and in the mouth, bringing a sweetness that dominates the whole experience. It is, however, not overbearing. The beer is surprisingly light and lacks any real kind of heat. There is the smallest hint of a traditional British hop in the dusty finish. Unique.

Pretty flat and malty on the nose. Nothing special. Plenty in the mouth though. Very relaxed but with heaps of delicious sweet but spicy rum flavours. Very old-school sailor style. I actually like the flavour that is brought out here. Very different. Not too delicate or culture but definitely different.

AGAquino (667) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2012
Pours clear dark amber with tan head and some lace. Aroma is strong rum and oak wood. Slightly sweep malt flavours, dried fruit, figs and rum. A bit overpowering, but nice to have once in a while.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2012
Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Very sweet beer with a lot of bourbon and vanillia notes from the casks. Some off flavor as the temperature increases but still way better than the std I&G beer.

Drake (13654) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 7, 2012
330 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Thanks to the clear bottle a good wave of skunk has spread across the room. Other aroma notes include butter, wood, spice and rum. The taste is rum, wood, toasted malts, butter, floral hops. Medium bodied. Decent.

Draught. Surprising light expression of oak and booze aging. The navy rum flavor and smell are distinct as is the oak tanin on the palate. And the booze is not hidden. But somehow that is not all in your face like so many imperial stouts. Really pleasant for a change. I get alcohol flamed bananas vanilla and coconut or maybe i am just remembering my last painkiller! The aroma is clean malty. Flavor is very sweet. The texture is smooth and it finishes cool and fast with little carbonation in the palate. Pretty enjoyable as a ’painkiller’. ;)
