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.""""

In bottles (of course) at Perfect Pint, amazing smoothness with a great taste reminding of cream sickle. When drinking it, you can almost taste the richness of barrel and the well balance of the flavors for a delightful experience.

Dark honey color with sweet honey and oak taste, the oak really comes out of the casks and into the beer, delicious

bottle - Pours clear amber and smells of lightly toasted caramel malt and oak. The flavor is rich, sweet, and definitely oaked. Itís medium bodied and has minimal bitterness. I very much enjoyed it.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Clean amber pour with lively carbonation a a two finger white head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma is quite sweet- honey, toffee, caramel, nut, toast, bread, and hints of vanilla extract and a light skunky note. The flavor is nutty, toasty, and loaded with caramel, honey, and toffee. Oak is barely noticeable if at all. The palate is smooth, caressing, crisp, and clean with a chewy mouthfeel and grainy finish.

Pours clear brown with small white head; toffeish malty, honeyish aroma is also slightly spicy with hints of oak and a touch of citrus; malty flavor is sweet toffeish, tasting actually also - this was the first impression - quite a bit like those sweetened licorice powder candies (I donít know if they have any specific name, at least in english), and honey, with a somewhat spicy, dry, oaky finish; body is medium with moderate carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (8024) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2010
Clear 11.2oz bottle pours clear copper with thin tan head. The aroma is smooth oak bleeding into sweet bourbon like booze and maybe a faint roasted malt note hinting at the beer that was poured into the barrel. The taste has soft well used oaky wood barrel notes, sweet tranquil boozy bourbon sweetness and vanilla. It then becomes oak and pure sweet booze into the finish. I get no beer notes after a few ounces. With concentration and getting into the last few sips of the from the bottle I think Iím sensing malts or slightly roasted malts. I would prefer the beer shine through a bit more.

thb (799) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a yellowy-amber with a nice big head. Tastes more or less as advertised - big toffee and vanilla flavours, right from the start to the finish. The sugariness and alcohol do definitely give you that whiskey impression. Thereís basically no bitterness, making it really unbalanced. Very smooth mouthfeel. Iíve had this a few different times and itís been wildly inconsistent. Maybe it has something to do with the clear glass bottle. I also think serving temperature has a particularly huge effect here.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2010
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 Iím used to but Iíd 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.
