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!

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 3, 2012
The liquid in the bottle looked more like a cherry coke or something similar than beer. Poured into an English pint glass. Aroma seemed off, maybe hints of rum barrel? Even bready. But, this was an interesting brew, rum flavored, alcohol, balanced with flavors of vanilla, oak. Decent. I wouldn’t buy a cse of this brew, but interesting to try.

StoutHead (966) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours a brownish/amber color with a small white head. Notes of malt and rum. Taste is malt, spices, caramel and rum. Very sweet. Pretty good beer.

annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Bread, malt, and a little peat in the aroma. Pretty strong rum flavor, along with caramel and vanilla. Finish is a little harsh, but then again I think rum has a pretty harsh finish. Good, but a little less subtle than I expected and/or hoped

MikeKeller (951) - Kemi, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, Haparanda. Nice dark amber looks and a dissapering bubbly head (which is always a small minus). Wood and rum in the aroma and taste. Quite dry, not very sweet. Decent body but a bit thin for the ABV.

PapaVillum (950) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2015
330 ml, flaske, 6,8 % ABV, BB: 05/2016, købt i Netto på Roskildevej i Valby, 11. august 2015. Mahognifarvet klar skotsk English Strong Ale med mindre offwhite skumkrone på 1-2 cm tykkelse. Aromaen er tydelig præget af rom og fadlagring/egetræ samt marcipan/mandler. Fin, let påvirket, rom-smag med lille let sødme og medium bitterhed. Rommen ligger i starten af smagsbilledet , mens egetræsnoterne kommer snigende i slutningen. Kroppen er middel fyldende og karboneringen på et middel niveau. Mundfølelsen er frisk og perlende. Olieret konsistens. Øllet smager en del henad en skotsk Ale, hvilket er ret imponerende prisen taget i betragtning. Men ligesom jeg tidligere er blevet, bliver jeg også denne gang, positivt overrasket over øllene fra Innis & Gunn.

330 ml, flaske, 6,8 % ABV, købt i Netto, 24. oktober 2014. Klar/filtreret og rolig kastaniebrun engelsk Strong Ale med en 4-5 cm tyk offwhite skumtop, som svinder langsomt. Aroma af rom og træ. Sødlig. En smule surhed i starten af smagsbilledet. Derefter går smagen over i en let sødme hånd i hånd med let bitterhed. Vel karboneret på et medium niveau og en konsistens, der er tynd til oily. Kroppen er let og en eftersmag, der ikke er særlig lang. En okay let sødlig engelsk Ale med underliggende bitterhed uden at sparke r__.

Milter (950) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 Une couleur ambrée assez foncé (caramel brûlé) la mousse et de couleur plâtre et se dissipe tranquillement Nez on va trouver des arômes de amende vanille caramel au beurre salé Embouche on va sentir la vanille abondamment (cela vient du rhum bien sûre!!!) va aussi sentir des saveurs d’amaretto ! C’est une bière qui manque un peu de corps. Le taux d’alcool est peut-être un peu trop faible...

Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle 330ml at the Bull&Castle. Brown color, towards copper. Small head. Aroma of rum, alcohol. Odd, like being at a dockyard. Taste is sweet, rummy, vanilla, somewhat spicy, but light. Really good but can be tiring. I recommend for 1

Sjohnh (947) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
6.8% version. Dark wood colour with a small white head leaving tendrils of lacing. Medium body, slightly oily and a nice bit of carbonation - I think the suggestions of it being watery are a bit harsh. Aroma of spice and brown bread. Tastes of malt, rum and banana. Nice.

3.4
jksipa (945) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a small tan head that quickly fades. Nose has lots of toffee rum, oak, banana and some dark fruits. Quite sweet cherry and caramel with some vanilla a bit of tartness as well. Medium slick mouth with soft carbonation
