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 fairly light amber with a quick white head. The nose is almost offensive (to me, anyway), with a mixture of scotch, malt, and skunk dominating. The taste, however, is pleasantly much better. Virtually no hops noticable. Malt is moderately strong and quite sweet, with a bit of an oak and whiskey-like hue in the finish. Different from what Im used to but Id have it again.

Bottled 330ml. -Nice clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, sweet nose. Biscuity malty, oaky and caramel with notes of vanilla and tiramisu cake. Sweet finish. Interesting and pleasant beer.

AndrewC (353) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
A present. Nice whiskey, cinnamon, vanilla flavours. Whiskey on the finish was a bit off putting though; felt like I was drinking Famous Grouse. Not really my kind of beer but okay I guess

Spab (3182) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
330 ml clear bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep orange gold with virtually non-existent head but lots of big bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and oak. Flavour is bready, caramel and a definite oakiness that lingers through the mildly bitter finish. Decent.

Innis & Gunn Original (Scotland) 6.6% 330ml - $3.45 Oak aged beer with hints of toffee and vanilla. Very smooth finish. One of my favourites.

tgncc (3080) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2010
The aroma is bread and butter, some oak. The appearance is a clear dark yellow/amber, white head. The flavor is butterscotch, toffee. the finish is a mild hop bitering, mainly noble hops. Decent.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2010
12 oz bottle, honey-golden appearance with little head. No lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is sweet with hints of honey, vanilla, and maltiness, also mixed in with some doughyness reminiscent of a pale lager. Spicyness also present. Taste is sweet and honeylike along with sharp bitterness, but not as complex as the aroma would suggest. Palate is smooth and sits well on the tongue. Not a bad beer.

WOW! The only bad thing I can say about this beer is that it has a rather thin head that disapears quickly. Other than that, its got a lovely colour, it smells faintly of a lovely scotch, and tastes of it moreso, strong tastes of oak and butterscotch. Its just awesome to behold!

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle purchased in Atlanta, Ga. Carbonated, copper pour with a nice lasting head. Buttery aroma but also somehow sharp at the same time. Who still bottles in a clear bottle? 77 days in the Oak has made this far less horrible than I imagined. Now it is a bit sharp followed by some odd malt flavors, but it is the overwhelming butter level that makes this nasty. There is a touch of dark fruit in there that might be described as bad dates or prunes. Has a bit of alcohol to it as well. Creamy mouth feel and medium body. I could not finish the bottle but I finished my glass. That should be enough to remind me not to get this again.

muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Pours a clear amber/golden color with a very thin white head. Medium carbonation. Smells a bit hoppy at first and somewhat reminds me of a Pils. Aroma is malty with notes of vanilla, citrus, toffee and oak. Strong frutiness in there as well. A lot less bitter than I thought. Long creamy and sweet finish. Very interesting and refreshing beer.
