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.""""

Bottle, 33cl. Pours an ochre-bronze, with quickly disappearing thin head. Honey, citrus, malt and toffee on the nose, and quite oakey on the palate. Low carbonation, nicely blended alcohol in the mouthfeel, with sour tail. Unusual, but quite decent.

Bright copper with lasting ring. Toasty toffee woodsy whiskey coffee-cake aroma. Malty toasted toffee flavor with mild whiskey barrel and British hop. Medium body and carbo. Fairly complex and tasty. I like the whiskey barrel again of this. I could drink many of these.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 1, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bottle from the Scottish Pub in downtown Savannah, GA. Pours a clear orange with low carbonation and a thin, white head. This is quite a change of pace. Nose is vanilla, cream soda, oak, honey. Taste is very creamy- pretty much really good cream soda albeit alcoholic. Aftertaste is a little sour. Very oily on the palate. Interesting and I would recommend it to others. 11/1/2008 5/3/7/4/14=3.3

330mL courtesy of beerandblues2. Poured a clear gold with really no head formation. Aroma is macro lager, sharp import macro lager metallic, butter, light whiskey. Taste is smooth, bourbon heavy, lots of butter. Pretty interesting but not integrated very well. Overall comes off as much too sweet and heavy on old toffee malts. Body has too many brewing flaws (diacetyl) that the barrel aging attempts to cover up. 2/12/2011 4/2/6/3/10=2.5

lowgun1212 (109) - Carlstadt, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2012 Fabulous nose. smalls like cookies and oatmeal and brownies and heath bar and peach. Also a pretty beer. slightly red amber, Sweet and soft taste, a little penny taste in there takes away some. Mostly smooth on the palate but not gooey; a little seltzery. The oak definitely has its way with this beer and i really like it. especially the nose. Highly underrated in IMHO!

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle. Copper coloured with white head. Smoked wood and vanilla aroma. First flavour is quite sweet followed by a smoky bitterness that doesn’t quite balance that initial sweetness. Complex flavours of whisky, vanilla, wood, berries and honey. A good effort but its excessive sweetness lets it down.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2008 Pours out of the bottle yellow-ish brown with a small cloying head that almost looks sticky. Aroma is sweet, cinamon and honey. It smells like a cinnamon bun. The palate is super complex. Honey, oak, cinnamon, almost a scotch-esque favor in there as well, most definatly a fruitier highland scotch. There are also some soft fruit notes in there as well (possible pear) and a gentile hoppiness. Finnish lingers with an oaky bite. Good, good beer.

Kavu (4172) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2013 Pours brownish amber with a white top. Aroma is filled with honey and unfortunately so is the flavor. It was so sweet that I could barely finish the bottle. Not my cup of tea. Re-rate: Not really 1.2 as I said previously but too sweet nevertheless.
