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!

Kryddig! my wife said when she sipped it, and I agree. An unusually spiced beer, but it doesnt really feel like rum. Perhaps the combination with maturation process and the restrained hoppyness. A successful experiment, this one, fruity and spicy but still heavy bodied and convincing in the whole spectrum. Like!

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice clear copper colour with a short beige head that quickly diminishes to surface cover. Aroma is quite spicy with notes of malt, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and ginger. Flavour is more malty but is otherwise the same as the aroma. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry, spicy finish. Overall a pretty good, but still unusual, beer. One of the better ones from this brewery.

bottle @ friends. Appearance: pours dark amber (some sedimentation) with low short lived off-white head with limited lacing. Aroma/taste: caramel, cream, toffee, wood, rum and some fruity notes. Palate: low to average carbonation, full body, distinct caramel sweetness, low bitterness, long duration and an oily texture. Overall: very nice strong ale

Sjohnh (895) - 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.

Pours a copper colour with a creamy head. The aroma is dominated by rum. The taste is rather sweet with notes of toffee, vanilla, spices but mostly rum. Some bitterness, but the finish is mostly rum. A sweetish strong ale which is not unpleasant, but rather one dimensional.

Klar colafarget med fint hvitt skum. Kjenner godt eikefatene og rom i lukten sammen med en snodig duft av smr (ufrisk). Eik i smaken sammen med en tam cuba libre. gir meg en billig rusbrus flelse.
