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.""""

Pours a clear golden color with very thin white head. Interesting aroma with hints of honey, oakwood, citrus and fresh green apples. Thin watery flavor of sour applejuice, oakwood and walnut with a sour alcoholic finishing. Mouthwatering sourness and thin watery body

Co-worker got a case for his birthday and I was able to wrestle a bottle away from him. Scottish brewers add dimension to their portfolio with whiskey-oaked English Strong Ale. Woody, vanilla, whiskey sweetened ale that I found unique and enjoyable.

Sour oak aroma. Clear orange color with a small white head. Moderate oak flavor to start off. Finishes with a creamy vanilla taste.

Bouteille transparente de 330 ml. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur dorée-cuivrée avec une mousse blanche modeste. Notre nez respire des arômes de whiskie, de purée de banane, de vanille et de caramel avec des effluves d’alcool. En bouche notre langue supporte un corps moyen avec une effervescence moyenne. Nos papilles gustatives quand à elles font connaissance avec des saveurs de vanille, de banane, de whiskie avec des notes caramélisées, boisées et alcoolisées. Excellent. Merci Thierry

Had this in a gold rimmed Innis & Gunn glass on 1/1/07 at an All-Bar-One in London. Pours a coppery color with a smaller 1/4 finger off white head. Earth tones, scotch, oak, and hops on the aroma. First taste is Vanilla, oak, malt, chocolate, caramel and grapes. Finishes with some light bitters, oak, chocolate, earth, and a big dry malt taste. Palate is smooth and creamy. An excellent beer for sure. I wonder what everyone else was drinking! Aftertaste is a little malt heavy.

Yeah, this is the one that I tried. Oak aged beer indeed. Well they can age it as much as they want in their special way, but this is one of the few beers I could only have half a bottle of, only 330ml and all thats how disgusting this tasted!

BelgiskOlklub (1035) - Viby J, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden colour like apple juice, small diminishing white head with fair lacing. Aroma of malt and citrus. Thin watery body, smooth. Good balanced flavor, medium sweet and very light bitter.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 17, 2008
Copper, small thin white head. Fresh woody, oaky aroma. Little vanilla, toffee and mushrooms. Flavor is toffeeish, oaky, little alchol and vanilla ice cream. It doesn’t have enough body and character in itself to justify the barrel ageing, now it’s just thin and oaky.

oakbluff (434) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 14, 2008
Pours a highly filtered amber/golden with fluffy white head. Lacing is minimal. Nose- buttery, wood. Taste- sweet caramel malts, some vanilla oak notes. Body is medium thickness. Finish continues to be just as sweet as initial sip. No hops to speak of. too sweet.

KM (416) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle. Pale brown body. Small non-lasting head. First of all: A nice malt whisky aroma. Also malty and sweet fruitiness. It seems that the aroma disappears after a while. Flavour is a heavy sweet fruitiness, combined with butter. The flavour is complex, it si different for each sip. A warming beer. Served two months after the expiration date. (At home, 12.06.08)
