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. Aroma of whiskey and vanilla and English malts. This tasted like an English bitter to me with some rum or whiskey poured in with it. Very bitter sweet palate and hard to drink quickly.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle. Amber body with a light off white body. Lots of vanilla, light fruit, light whiskey, sweet sugar, and light oakiness. Has a vanilla cream soda feel with very light barreling. Sessionable at a price.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 poured clear amber with a small white head. Malty, earthy aroma with mild vanilla note. Smooth but slightly oily on the tongue. Taste of malt sweetness with nice woody notes. Slight earthy undertone and some vanilla in the finish.

RIXbeer (102) - USA - NOV 28, 2008
clear glass....do I need a glass? Yeah i guess so. Pours a watery looking light amber. no head. no action. Aroma of a grolsch like lager and oak. Hint of whiskey.Nice smooth oaky flavor but it still reminds me of a german/european lager. The whiskey is very present and surprisingly smooth. Nice smoothness and a light [,lager like] flavor. The ABV will sneak right up on you but this beer, although very easy to drink isn’t a beer I want to keep drinking.

33 cL clear bottle. Pours almost clear and golden yellow to orange with a small yet dense and off-white head. Dry malty and slight grassy hoppy aroma. Flavour is breadish malty, light sweet and with a mild roasted note. Caramelish too. Light bitterness showing through. Bitter and breadish malty in the finish.

SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle, 33cl. Pours an ochre-bronze, with quickly disappearing thin head. Honey, citrus, malt and toffee on the nose, and quite oakey on the palate. Low carbonation, nicely blended alcohol in the mouthfeel, with sour tail. Unusual, but quite decent.

malrubius (2239) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bright copper with lasting ring. Toasty toffee woodsy whiskey coffee-cake aroma. Malty toasted toffee flavor with mild whiskey barrel and British hop. Medium body and carbo. Fairly complex and tasty. I like the whiskey barrel again of this. I could drink many of these.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 1, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Bottle from the Scottish Pub in downtown Savannah, GA. Pours a clear orange with low carbonation and a thin, white head. This is quite a change of pace. Nose is vanilla, cream soda, oak, honey. Taste is very creamy- pretty much really good cream soda albeit alcoholic. Aftertaste is a little sour. Very oily on the palate. Interesting and I would recommend it to others. 11/1/2008 5/3/7/4/14=3.3

330mL courtesy of beerandblues2. Poured a clear gold with really no head formation. Aroma is macro lager, sharp import macro lager metallic, butter, light whiskey. Taste is smooth, bourbon heavy, lots of butter. Pretty interesting but not integrated very well. Overall comes off as much too sweet and heavy on old toffee malts. Body has too many brewing flaws (diacetyl) that the barrel aging attempts to cover up. 2/12/2011 4/2/6/3/10=2.5
