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.""""

Parket (581) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2010
bottle in Edinburgh pub, ugly looking bottle, corono like beer. Smell: malty, sugary. Taste: also malty and sugary, very stump and a bit too sweet.

Muggus69 (2044) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2010
330ml, All-Bar-One, London. Couldn’t resist when I saw this on the men. Suprisingly clean gold body with some whispy lace. Distinctly strong wood aroma; vanilla oakiness, smoked malt, earthy undertones, maple syrup and citrus fruit. Smells damn good! Reasonably low carbonation, richly bodied, sticky texture. Fantastic malt and oak flavours drive the body; vanilla, maple syrup, burnt wood, muscat, bitter orange, bread crust. Such a pleasure to slowly sniff and savour. Wish beers like this were more common place!

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear light reddish brown with a short-lived off white head. Nose has some slight caramel and vanilla, sweet and malty. Thin, slightly sweet, some caramel, oak, vanilla, light malts. Almost no hops.

Vladivostok (432) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2010
Sweet peachy aroma which continues through into the mouth. Very little hop aroma or bitterness. Finish is gentle and malty. A pleasant well-crafted beer.I think calling it English might cause a few hackles to rise north of the border!

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Sample from a bottle at NY Brew Fest 2010. Pours scotch tan with zero head. Aroma of gin, bourbon, sweet malts, oak, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and candy. Medium bodied with an insanely smooth, creamy palate. Very good English strong.

canicule (90) - IRELAND - JUN 21, 2010
Whiskey coloured. Subtle, slight aroma. Very smooth. Sweet, vanilla taste is the highlight. Slight hop finish, not too bitter. Not a heavyweight - surprised this weighs in at 6.6%abv - but pleasant and suitable to accompany a meal.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Sampled during Brew Fest 2010 on Governor’s Island. I really liked this sucker. Mellow, honey, vanilla, oak. Very sessionable.

jkwood04 (5260) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2010
12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of oak, toffee, and some malt. Flavor starts with malt that is a little bitter, has the oakiness too it the entire time, and a very slight hop undertone. Light on the palate and average body. A decent beer, but way overpriced. Wouldn’t buy again.

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
