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 (14389) - 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.

Drake (14358) - 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.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 A dark amber ale with a thick lacing moka head. Sweet aroma of rum barrel, woody, a bit of caramel malt. In mouth, a good sweet malt with tobacco notes, rum, a bit of acidic points, medium bodied. Bottle from LCBO, BB Dec 2009. 7-3-7-3-13

Rum Finish version: A clear brown ale with a thick big bubbled brown head. In aroma, sweet caramel with light rum, butterscotch, vanilla, a tad cloying. In mouth, nice sweet caramel malt with smooth rum notes, dark raisins, a bit light bodied, nice warming alcohol. Not sure if it was made in Nov 2012, or its the BB, but its not bad. 7-3-8-3-14

I thought the regular was okay, just barely, but it struck an odd note. This sucks though, very soapy, almost skunky. Shite.

Rune (14052) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2009
330ml bottle at Håndverkerstuene, which is the new great place for beer enjoyment in Oslo. Nice ruby coloured body with solid, beige patchwork. Aroma of barrel vanilla with rum. Dark vanilla in flavour in interplay with spiced malt. Dry, rounded bitter ending. Tolerable sweet. Feels well balanced and well bodied in the mouth. Likable (Oslo, 17.11.2009).

Desverger (14037) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2012
(Bottle 330ml) Pours dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is woody, very sweet toffee and caramel malts. Flavour is mix of sweet and bitter burnt caramel malt. Interesting and very different brew, just not to my taste, but can understand how others like this.
