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.""""

Gravelle (104) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Amber/copper color with an off-white head. The oak aroma and flavor gives the sweet vanilla, butter, malt and caramel. A little strong on the aftertaste of the still lingering oak. Different. But different good or different bad.

This beer pours a nice maple brown colour with a small white head. The aroma is good with vanilla and toffee evident. The flavour is somewhat muted but there is hints of butterscotch, vanilla and a woody, whisky taste. Overall it is nothing special but it is unique.

16th August 2008. Clear pale brown beer. Sweet with lots of vanilla and a little oak. Just a touch of hops buried under the vanilla.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2009
This is quite a unique tasting beer. It is thick and syrupy. The flavor is a heavy malt, tasting like hard butterscotch candy. Very sweet, oozing with honey.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 11, 2009
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a short lived white head. Aroma has notes of honey, caramel, vanilla, butterscotch and malt. Flavour isn’t as sweet as the aroma but is otherwise almost identical, the vanilla notes imparted by the oak standing out even more. Light bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and a short dry finish, this is an alright beer but pretty thin for an ESA. Pleasant but wouldn’t drink more than one in a sitting.

MullMan (1099) - New York, USA - NOV 6, 2009
bottle. Pale golden amber color, short thick foamy off-white head. Aroma is whiskey and butter, oak chips, some toffee and crystal malt, butterscotch too. Flavor is different, starts dry,woody, and skunky then toffee/crystal malt. Some whiskey & water, lots of carbonation, and a skunkwatery finish. Oaky bitter aftertaste.

mcberko (13483) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2009
330mL bottle - pours golden with a minimal white head. Aroma vanilla, oak and butterscotch. Flavour is a weak combination of these. Slight bitterness at the end. Quite dull / boring for all that’s in it. Drinkable, but nothing special.

I would have to say his is one of the most unique beers I;ve had. Every flavr is over the top. Oak,vanilla, butterscotch. Not to mention the sweetness of honey. Aroma of skunk or wet ashtry,but sweet.

Bottle. Poured a amber blonde witha foamy head. Light honey and caramel nose. Slightly creamy mouthful with some sweetness and light hops. Some oak notes and pretty smooth. The barrel aging adds to the mix but the base beer is only decent.
