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!

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2011
12 ounce bottle- pours out a really beautiful auburn color with a thin white head, very attractive in a pub glass. Aroma was sweet, a quirky mix of wood and candied berries. Tastes of apples and brown sugar, very enjoyable. Mouth filling and smooth. A very nice brew with a wonderful potential, Ill be looking for this one again.

Acaro (70) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2017
Aroma: Very subtle resin/caramel notes and a woody touch. Appearance: Nice dark brown color with clear liquid and a thin white head. Taste: Medium sweetness and light bitter notes Palate: Medium body with thin texture and average carbonation. Subtle but long bitter finish with wood notes. Overall: It misses stronger aroma and palate. It doesnt leave a memory. Very soft flavour. Maybe too much carbonation for the style

pitch992 (188) - SLOVENIA - MAR 7, 2017
Bottle from maximarket. Aroma of rum, vanilla, birch, alcohol. Everything is clashing, the sweetness is too high and the wood and the rum notes need to mellow a lot more. Alcohol could be more hidden. Overall has potential.

lokis333 (454) - Birai, LITHUANIA - FEB 28, 2017
Clear deep ruby amber color with medium frothy off white foam. Aromas of caramel malts, tofee, banana peel, vanila and notes of dried oak planks and oak sawdust. Palate, medium body with smooth texture and noticable carbonation, leaving woody finish. Taste, sweet-ish of oak, caramel with some herbs and light touch of booze. Overall, nice interesting oak tasing beer, unfortunatly bit lacking on the palate side, but still nice to try.
