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.""""

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle. Pale amber with a nice, white head. Floral malt, is that an aroma? Nevertheless, it has some floral character to it. Slightly bitter. Thin, Nice aroma and beginning but short aftertaste.

A very good beer I must say I don’t care about anyone else’s opinion. Yes, I’ll agree it’s a little different but sometimes different is good, in this case very good they run out all the time at the LC (MOST Canadians will know what an LC is)

BeerEssential (96) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Poured into a Trappist style glass this beer came out a rich amber colour with a nice white head. The head disappeared quite quickly, though. This had one of the nicest aromas I’ve experienced in a beer, with a rich vanilla/caramel scent. Creamy taste of oak and vanilla. Not as overly rich or overpowering as I expected. Fairly dry finish. Believe the hype. This is a beer to be savoured.

Cask at the Bricklayers Arms, 9th March 2008. Very clear amber with a white head. Strong vanilla and citrus aroma. Flavour is similar with a creamy mouthfeel. Nice enough.

italianjohn (2430) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2008
This was a great beer cost me five dollars for one bottle but i feel it was worth it ... it had so many flavors and was very smooth considering the 6.6% The vanilla stands out to me with toffee and the slight oak finish which is different .... its a very drinkable beer it hides the alcohol well i see it was brewed by belhaven another good beer if you haven’t tried it

pivnizub (9160) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle:Deep golden, small, but stable lacy white head; wood, vanilla and turpentine in the nose; moderate sweetish flavour, medium bodied; vanilla aromas in the sweet-bitter finish. Who needs this.....?

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2008
(33cl bottle) Clear, golden colour with a medium-sized, slightly off-white foamy head. Sweet and slightly oaky, barrique-like nose with peaty accents, notes of alcohol, vanilla and a restrained hops character. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Soft malty base with distinctive notes of vanilla, toffee and slightly peaty, whiskey-like flavours; medium-dry, sweet and faint bitter finish with shy hoppy notes and too much of vanilla and alcoholic accents. It´s like in the wine, I just must not have barrique flavours (05.03.08).
