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.""""

Ordinær og kedelig Strong Ale. Meget fin og klar farve. Savner den gode smag af øl.

The beer tasted nice and it smelled reasonable. Good slightly syrup like vibes and nice aftertaste. Perfect for a lamb BBQ muddafucka!

Sweet malty smell and even sweeter taste, buttery taste though...prominent..no hops at all, buttery-ness not a great attribute though that’s the most prominent...

Bottle at home.The taste has a subtle maltiness with a hint of sweet. Okay but lacks depth of flavour.

Bright Copper brown, Smell of oak, vanilla, caramel. Sweet flavor with some grain and wood. Drinkable but nothing extraordinary. Good vanilla though.

Cerveja dourada e translúcida, sem presença de espuma. O aroma já traz o toque exótico da cerveja maturada em barril de carvalho com um leve toque de especiarias. Porém a grande surpresa vem no sabor; exótico e mantendo o sabor proveniente do casco, o fundo é picante e lembra especiarias utilizadas no tempero de carnes, proporcionando um aftertaste agradável e refrescante. O amargor é fraco e permite que a excentricidade do sabor seja aproveitada de maneira plena. Uma cerveja equibrada e de ótima drinkability devido ao corpo leve, que pôr-me deixa um pouco a desejar no pálato, que é pouco envolvente. Ótima para acompanhar carnes devido a harmonia com temperos.

Bottle from Tesco; clear amber pour with a frothy off white head, aroma does have vanilla could be from oak or essence, taste has smoke, smooth vanilla, sweet caramel, some citrus action in the form of tangerine, I thought I would hate this but I don’t.
