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.""""

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 bottle. pours a light amber with a small white head.... light sweet malt aroma with a touch of oak and some apple. the apple carries through the body along with the sweet malts. I really donít get the oak aged flavors at all.... I didnít really know what to expect from this one, but I was disappointed.... a very average import.

From the 1 pt. 7.6 fl. oz clear bottle marked 16 Jan 09-8017A 12:38. The pour was amber in tone with a decent amount of beige head that stays around for an extended period and excellent lacing. The aroma was a welll-balanced misture of sweet malts and something fruity like apple or wine. Medium mouthfeel. The taste had a sweet malt character subtle hops. It had a sort of dry fermented sensation of wine and there was no aftertaste. This was an exclellent beer and one of the best Iíve had lately.

Rich and clear amber colour. Malt and caramel aromas. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Fairly sweet flavours of malt and caremels. Not a bad ale.

zach8270 (3913) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2009
(bottle 330 ml) Clear copper color with a puffy white head. Aroma is quite intense. Lots of spice, vanilla, fruit, oak, butter, and caramel malts. Some scotch as well. Flavor is buttery and sweet at the beginning with a smooth sweetness from the oak, a mild bitterness in the middle, and a very buttery and sweet finish. Warms a little more than I thought 6.6% would. Very tasty.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Clear copper pour. Fluffy off white head and surprisingly no lace. Sweet malts and oak on the nose. Bourbon, toffee, oak, and vanilla. Slight citric finish. Seemed like there was more more alcohol evident then the list 6.6% ABV

aroma has some serious pears, with a touch of vanilla. flavour is caramel, spices, surrounded by apples and pears. Its whiskey notes come through on the bitter sweet and, I think, gorgeous backend. itís medium bodied and ultra smooth. this stuff is underrated, perphaps because its so easy to find a skunked bottle. i really wish innis and gunn would sell this in their singles boxes, most stores donít know how to store this stuff!

330 ml bottle. Clear, golden body with a nice, but collapsing off-white head. Aroma is strong caramel with vanilla. Flavor is sweet caramel, vanilla, oak and descent bitterness, quite smooth. The aftertaste has a clear indication of whisky. There is a lot better and stronger flavored oak aged beers out there, but this is quite nice anyway.
