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 beautiful orange-amber with bone white head that dissipates with little trace. Big aroma of toffee, oak, vanilla and a hint of honey and alcohol. Taste is sweet malt with a bit of citrus hops, and slight whiskey note, but is not as big as the aroma. Body is light and smooth. The selling points here are the color and nose. The palate isn’t that complex, though the manageable alcohol makes it sessionable.

Pours a clears pale copper topped by a finger or so of fizzy white head showing minimal retention and lacing properties. The nose is awesome, and this might be the BBQ fan speaking, but there are tons of oak paired with a nice nutty malt feature. The taste is also dominated by oak and nutty malts with some buttery notes. You get some fine, as in small, carbonation through a low to medium body. As the brew expands, the oak stays but the hops rise up with a grassy element. That beer surprised me, and might deliver the best oak flavour I have had since I review beers. Cheers!

Clear golden with a medium sized off-white head, good lacing. Aroma and taste is very malty, bready and oak.
Ok

Light copper pour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, biscuit. Taste is a solid malt body, little dry in the finish. Does have a slight vanilla flavor. OK beer.

Bottle - A rich honey color. Smells very sweet and like oak on the nose. Lots of oak taste on this beer, don’t much care for it. The oak and sweet flavor just over powers all others tastes I get from this one. I wish there was some bitterness to cut the oak taste.

33cl bottle at home. Clear orange brown with almost no head. Medium body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones in its finish. Caramel, oak, malts, vanilla, citrus and grass. A tasty refreshing oak aged brew.

Bottle pour of gold with a white head that lasts but a blink. The flavor is smooth vanilla caramel that lingers a tad. A tasty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
