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.""""

speedywinger (29) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 Bottle from LCBO. Beautiful clear amber/copper color (same as pic) with an off-white head. This beer has an insane amount of oak aroma and flavor. If you like oaky wines or whiskey this beer is heaven in a bottle. The flavor is sweet vanilla, oak, malt and caramel...mmmmmm. A little boozy aftertaste and wood. Unique beer.

Clear, honey amber colour with nice white head. Oak and caramel aroma with a hint of vanilla. Oak and butterscotch flavour with bitter floral hops. Clean dry bitter finish. Unusual, but nonetheless very drinkable. While I can appreciate it may not suit all tastes, well worth trying.

Bottle. Pale amber with a nice, white head. Floral malt, is that an aroma? Nevertheless, it has some floral character to it. Slightly bitter. Thin, Nice aroma and beginning but short aftertaste.

BeerEssential (96) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Poured into a Trappist style glass this beer came out a rich amber colour with a nice white head. The head disappeared quite quickly, though. This had one of the nicest aromas Iíve experienced in a beer, with a rich vanilla/caramel scent. Creamy taste of oak and vanilla. Not as overly rich or overpowering as I expected. Fairly dry finish. Believe the hype. This is a beer to be savoured.
