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!

Caramel pour with a light head. Interesting scent. A touch of hops and something minty? Thick caramel and soyish taste. The best Innis and Gunn beer I have had. The taste is very overpowering and distinct. Still seems too strong and too overpowering, not balanced.

Why the glass bottles?? sigh. This is actually quite enjoyable. Pouts totally clear mahogany. Some head, but it doesnt last too long. Aromas - like a lot of their beers its got a sweet caramel/butterscotch front to it. This one seems especially syrupy although that could be an artifact of the rum cask. The rum really adds an exotic twist to it - maybe even something like coconut in there? I could be imagining it. Its a bit like a belgian dubbel in some ways. Its not often I say this but I would really prefer this more carbonated - as it is its a bit sticky and heavy.

Cant help but question a beer in a clear glass bottle. Very fancy-looking for sure, but, on the whole, Innis and Gunn Rum Cask tastes pedestrian; the oak is there but light, the rum makes an appearance but doesnt stick around, and the base ale makes for a rather no-frills playing field. Sticky sweetness begins to pop up as the beer warms; couple the English gooey malts with sugary navy rum and things start to border on cloy. Eh. Nice packaging, though.

02/02/2010. 330ml bottle, courtesy of Highlandlad. Perfumy brown ale, smoky at first but becoming an intoxicating mix of alcohol and spice, with a slender grainy sweet body and a long dry (slightly green) oaky finish. Ive had a bit of a mixed bag from these guys but this one is quite a decent step up. Cheers Highlandlad!

11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark mahogany brown with an average (1-2 finger) beige fizzy head that was fully diminishing with no lacing to speak of. The aroma was quite intense with a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of vanilla, rum, dark fruit (raisons and plums) and a light hint of toffee. The taste was moderately sweet and malty with notes of caramel, vanilla and dark fruit throughout with a nice cask presence and a mild rum alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with a mild boozy taste that faded slowly off the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a slight syrupy texture and a mildly soft carbonation. Overall a fantastic tasting brew with a good sweet rum flavor and a strong malty presence...

mikkellund42 (797) - DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear dark reddish brown with small non-lasting white head. Aroma is melon, peach, banana, vanilla, caramel, malt, dough and mild cheese. Hints of coffee. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Body is oily with lively carbonation. Finish is long, bitter and sweet, with notes of caramel, licorice, coffee, cream and brown sugar. Refreshing yet complex beer.
