COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avaialable in 330ml & 750ml bottles and on draught: Pasteurised.
Brewed by Belhaven for Innis & Gunn
Originally marketed simply as Innis & Gun Oak Aged Beer. "Original" was added later.

Ingredients: Golden Promise and crystal malt; Phoenix hops.
""""For 30 days this honey-hued beer sleeps in hand selected oak barrels, locked inside a bonded warehouse, gradually assimilating the subtle flavours that reside in the wood. Barrels are then emptied and maturation continues for a further 47 days in a marrying tun where these natural flavours infuse and fall into perfect balance. This 77-day process is unique and produces a delicious, refreshing beer: Aromas of vanilla and toffee, hints of citrus, with a malty, lightly oaked,palate. Deftly balanced and light in texture, soothing and warming in the finish.""""

fhoublon (82) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Bouteille de 330 ml achetée dans une LCBO de Ottawa. Dégustée le 12 juin 2008. Bière rousse orangée limpide. Col mince et peu durable. Très effervescente. Odeur de cognac prononcée, de bois (chêne) et d’alcool. Très douce, peu sucrée. Goût fade au début puis de bois acidulé, un peu aigre. Goût peu agréable, décevant. L’odeur annonçait beaucoup mieux.

Renobob (452) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 1, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Arômes maltés présent et sucre candi (peut-être à peine trop). On sent le caramel et la vanille. Une très belle découverte au moment de la dégustation.

MRMedellin (170) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - APR 1, 2014
Clear Orange dark beer, with a small foam head and good carbonation, malt notes of caramel, citrus and vanilla. Medium body, clear flavor, a little bit more sweet than it mean to be but pretty good at the end; some wooden notes make it special and really enjoyable.

roballenby (7) - - MAR 29, 2014 does not count
Pint on draught in Edinburgh. A stunning pint with hints of vanilla, toffee and and whisky. One of my all time favourite made even better by being on tap on not just out of the bottle
