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!

Scipio's rating

Scipio (1185) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a clear, dark amber with a thin beige head. Aroma contains lots of rum, and that is all that is noticed initially. But then you get some chocolate and caramel undertones. Taste has a bunch of rum offerings as well. Nuts and caramel are in there also. Sweet rum aftertaste is rather mild, but it is long lasting. Fizzy carbonation, medium in body, with a slightly sticky texture. I suppose this is ok, but I really don’t like rum. If you like rum, you should enjoy this.

Piepenhenrich (1198) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2017
Bottle. Pours red-brown with little to no head. Curious aroma of booze, wood, butter. Taste is a malty basis, then som alcoholic elements and taste of spirit (maybe rum, but I can't tell). There is still this hint of wood and butter, that takes this a bit far away from my definition of a beer, but on the other hand it tastes good after all. Interesting and enjoyable!

Let maltet med hvede og bygmalt, toffee, samt et romfinish Rødbrun, ikke rubinrød, rigtig fin label, intet værdigt hoved heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, rommen er tydeligvis til stede full body, creamy, sticky, soft carbonation, long finish, carbonation er ikke vigtig, da det har romintensitet, og er ikke identificeret med carbonation.

Tretinková fľaška. Žiadny zázrak sa veľmi nekonal. Keby nebolo napísané, tak asi ani neidentifikujem rumový koniec...
