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.""""

Lively, clear dark golden beer with a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with an edge of something I recognise but canít place. Flavour is light, crisp and sweet and the same something I couldnít pick out in the flavour is there too. Something from the way itís matured in the barrels, perhaps? Iím not in love with it but itís nice enough.

Very weak aroma. Not much to mention. Not an special looking beer one poured. Palate is clean with a slight oily feel. More much carbonation. Very sweet. Every flavor more is sweet which combined together is just too much.

Clear ligth amber colour (whisky) with white diminishing head. Weak aroma, soffly malty with oak tinges. Taste has soft maltiness, sweetness, vanilla notes and oak presence. Very low carbonation, almost unnoticeable. Soft and nice but too weak beer.

1.8.2014. Aroma has oak and toffee, also vanilla. Same in taste, first oak then toffee and oak again in finish, also fruity hops. Bitter, woody, stuffy. Good in small amounts.
