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. Pours clear brownish-orange with a small white head that’s gone in a blink on an eye leaving no lacing. Label says it has ’hints of toffee, vanilla and oak’, though I would edit it to say, ’vague and very distant hints’. Lightly sour and bitter taste, light flavor of whiskey and wood, average carbo, vague tasteless finish.

Bottle. Pours orange gold, pure white head with great retention. Toffee, vanilla, slight spice...cloves and nutmeg? Spicy and wooded noted dominate with nice, medium to full malt character and sweetness. Low to mild bitterness, but balanced with spices, wood and malt. easy drinking and great food beer... very enjoyable.

Whiskey aroma is the overall impression of this beer. Golden White head, nose - caramel, malt, vanilla, taste adds a more malty bread. Fine alcohol balance. Sweet and very faint bitterness.

Hieman kuplivaa ja vaahtoavaa. Nestemäisen hunajan värinen, läpinäkyvä mutta sameahko. Oltuaan hetken hapen kanssa tekemisissä tuoksussa on selkeästi toffeisuutta ja tammitynnyriä. Maku on pehmeä, kermainen ja toffeinen. Mieleen nousee mausteinen kuivakakku, vanilja ja tammisuus ovat miellyttäviä. Hyvin etäinen Lapin Kulta yrittää puskea läpi, mutta se kannattaa jättää huomiotta. (7.3.2015)

This is OK. A bit more palatable than the rum-aged version I had recently. Nose is first malty with caramel, toffee, a bit of oak, some tobacco notes, which also show up front and center on in the flavor, strong oaky flavors, almost a bourbon type oaky note (without the corn or wheat graininess of bourbon). Semi-sweet finish is sweet malt and oak. That’s pretty much the theme of this beer, sweet toffee malts and oak.

Ordinær og kedelig Strong Ale. Meget fin og klar farve. Savner den gode smag af øl.
