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.""""

Paladares (63) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 22, 2015
Botella. Buena espuma, un par de dedos. Aroma interesante: caramelo e higo, también vainilla. En boca, muy curiosa como las otras Innis. Mismos sabores que por el aroma, predominando vainilla. También caramelo y brandy. Final más seco y pelín amargo. En la etiqueta dice que recomiendan maridar con marisco a la plancha, pero creo que quedaría sensacional con unas gambitas al ajillo y su jerez. Otra estupenda cerveza de Innis.

Bardakta düşük gövdeli.. Koku vanilya, Ahşap (meşe), akide şekeri tınıları içeren tatlı-acı şeker kokusu var.. Tadım gerçekten ilginç, Yanık tatların yanında tatlı tınılar, hafif alkol.. Damakta kalıcılık yüksek değil ancak dil kuvvetli ve karakterli..

Smells of oak, tobacco, malt and toffee. No hop or fruit discernible at all. Slightly sour smell, which contrasts with the sweet, buttery flavour of the beer. Not really a fan of this.

Bottle. Pours clear brownish-orange with a small white head that’s gone in a blink on an eye leaving no lacing. Label says it has ’hints of toffee, vanilla and oak’, though I would edit it to say, ’vague and very distant hints’. Lightly sour and bitter taste, light flavor of whiskey and wood, average carbo, vague tasteless finish.
