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.""""

Gylden med fint skum, lidt flad sødlig smag, der er lidt påskebryg over den, men til den maltede side.

corkyrory66 (1320) - BELGIUM - APR 1, 2016
Ambrée de 6,6 % abv, définie par son brasseur comme une (respiration...) « american heartwood oak aged, brewed in small batches, carrefuly matured for 77 days prior to release ». Pas mal … Malt d’orge, froment. Couleur ambre moyen assez cuivré, à la clarté nette, brillante (pas de refermentation …). Bulles fines en fontaine centrale principalement, bien vive, mais aussi autour (de la fontaine). Mousse qui est un nappage diaphane ténu, je dirais même ténu diaphane … Arômes de malt grillé, tourbé, bois de fût, whisky, malt à whisky (à ne pas confondre avec whisky single malt …), muscade, pointe de noix. 1ère bouche soyeuse sur du malt à whisky vieille mode, fût, malt grillé, tourbe. Arrière-bouche longue, un peu complexe. 2ème sur du whisky à pépé, plante de marais, pointe de tourbe. Arrière-bouche plus diluée que la 1ère. 3ème avec du chêne, muscade, pointe d’armagnac à pépé. Arrière-bouche plus ou moins riche (allez, on va dire moins …). Longueur bof, bof, il faut aimer les vieilles bouteilles que papy vous sort pour montrer qu’il en a (des bouteilles …). Alcool plutôt banal, il se promène dans le paysage (écossais). Finale comment dire, inaperçue … CONCLUSION : beaucoup d’idées à la base de cette bière, mais peu de choses concrètes dans la réalisation. On n’a pas sorti le gros gun chez Innis ...

veceo (1189) - CROATIA - MAR 19, 2016
Clear amber color, average sized white head. Aroma of pear, oak, vanilla, malt. Taste is interesting... Again, pears, very smooth and silky, no alcohol, malts, oak, honey. Medium body, soft carbonation. Slightly dry at the end. Good stuff, I must admit.

AnG_BrgNor (429) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2016
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 (109) - 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 (758) - 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.
