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.""""

Bottle. Pours bourbon-esque orange brown. Aroma has wood, scotch, caramel and toffee. Palate is buttery and smooth, and flavors are soothingly sweet. This beer suggests barrel-aging very strongly, mainly due to sweet residual scotch flavors and woodiness rather than complexity. A solid drink.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Compliments of doboy! Pours from clear bottle a clear, copper body and a lush, white head. Aroma of malty, with an oaky whiskyish, with a woody accent. Flavour was reminiscent of whisky, vanilla, butterscotch, warming alcohol notes (strong ale, after all), and (surprisingly) a hint of dill. The aftertaste is all vanilla and dill. Lovely beer from my peoples homeland! Thanks Ed!

Bottle, Clear amber color, small white head. Smells a bit like butter. Taste like microwave popcorn with butter... strange.. Long end

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with very little head. Aroma is malty with a hit of sherry or a little scotch. Taste a caramel malt that ends with a bit of scotch or sherry taste. Very good.

Lowe1983 (1391) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, toasted malts, and oak. Flavor is the same with a slightly bitter finish with not too much oak. Not too strong but not too weak. A somewhat decent blend.

dnoaksson (758) - , SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2009
Öl med en rik palett av smaker. Frisk och fruktig, med en genomgående karaktär av kola. Frestar också med en inlindande honungssmak. Möjligtvis i sötaste laget för att nå de riktigt höga höjderna.

Bottle. Amberish color. Light head. Aroma is malty and smells very sweet. I get some booze(scotch)in the nose as well. Flavor is sweet with a dose of scotch? flavor. Not bad, pretty smooth.
