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.""""

Golden/copper coloured. Aroma and taste of wood, malt, oak and hops. Taste is sweet with a light hoppy bitterness, but its not lasting.

hellonearth (101) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2016
Dorée claire, cette bière révèle, du haut de son honnête mousse, des arômes de scotch et de bois fumé. Au goût, un peu la même chose: vif goût de caramel brûlé, de fumée, d?alcool brun et même de banane effouarée. Correcte, mais pas tant ma tasse de thé.

thellgren (672) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Golden clear colour and some head, well, it looks like a premium lager. Taste is, however, something else - Belgian like sweet malty flavours combined with butterscotch with some bitter end. Not really from any hops but from the oak barrell it was aged in.

kamillozo (105) - POLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Butelka. Piwo ma barwę jasnozłotą, jest perfekcyjnie krystaliczne. Przykrywa je drobniutka, biała piana wysoka na jeden palec. Utrzymuje się dzięki pracującemu ładnie nagazowaniu. Pozostawia niewielkie ślady na szkle. Aromat choć jest dość subtelny to faktycznie uwalnia wyraźną woń dębiny i wanilii. Jest też nuta alkoholu. Wydaj się też być lekko estrowe. Ogólnie aromatem przypomina jakiegoś mocniejszego belga. W smaku jest umiarkowanie słodkie, lekko landrynkowe. Wyraźne słody w typie herbatników, biszkoptu, do tego sporo toffi. Nadal też czuć alkohol. Piwo pozostawia zdecydowany waniliowy i taninowy posmak. Nagazowanie średnie do wysokiego, drobne i lekko szczypiące. Bąbelki nieustannie pracują w szkle. Goryczka niska.

hauxe (264) - Butzbach, GERMANY - FEB 24, 2016
Pours orange gold from the bottle with very little head. Aroma is whiskey, oak, and caramel. Taste reminds strongly of a whiskey and beer blend, with hints of vanilla. Finish is warm with a bit of smoke. Medium bodied, smooth, with low carbonation. Interesting and good.
