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.""""

330ml bottle. Strong pleasant English toffee specialty coffee or butterscotch aromas. A lasting frothy milkshake like head. Cherry coke looking body. Sweet deserts are abound in this oak aged treat. The bitterness of the oak is quickly overtaken by maple. Ive never tasted anything quite like this. I would skip the after dinner delights for a pint of Innis & Gunn any time.

(Sample Date: 7/12/2009 Source:Other) Bottle shared by Bill. Caramel, vanilla and oak in the aroma. Clear light golden brown with a small white head. Rich carmelization in flavor with a woodiness and touch of peat smoke. Creamy with hints of scotch in the finish and a hint of alcohol warming.

Bottle. Golden brown pour with slight head. Aroma of vanilla and whiskey. Tastes of vanilla, sweet, malt, oak, caramel, butterscoth and whiskey. A unique drinking experience but it does not taste like a beer. Pleasant and drinkable all the same.

Thanks to Dave for the introduction to this very fine beer. Beautiful whiskey coloured crystal clear brew. Small dense head with a fair amount of carbonation and decent head retention. Very clean flavour with highlights of vanilla, caramel malts, woody oak, and just enough hops to balance the taste. The flavours really shine as this warms to 50 to 55 degrees F. Great choice to share with unsuspecting friends.

Honey, cream head of tiny bubbles. Sweet toffee and vanilla nose as well as some interesting but not surprising woody notes. Tastes quite sweet and doesn’t have complexity the nose suggests. No noticeable bitterness although I guess the hopping keeps the caramel/ bubblegum from getting completely out of hand. An unusual beer that reminds me of ordinary scotch and water.

The look of the bottle and appearance of the beer reminded me of scotch, so I was not disappointed when I discovered the beer was smooth and aromatic with notes of vanilla and toffee. Just enough hops to give it some kick but not too bitter. I hope to have this beer again, but in scotland.

Clear medium amber/copper body with a fair amount of carbonation and a wonderful creamy off-white head. Nice lacing and good head retention. The aroma has got some strong notes of vanilla, toffee and a good amount of oakiness. Loads of malts and not much in the way of hops. Some alcohol is also noticeable. The taste starts with a fairly sweet, vanilla and toffee (or butterscotch) maltness, with a nice oak character and a bit of alcohol. The finish is woody and a bit sweet and dry. After a while, the whisky flavours start to come out more and more and linger throughout the aftertaste as well. This beer is medium-bodied, with some crisp carbonation. All in all, Innis & Gunn is an oustanding beer, giving you quite a unique drinking experience. Highly recommended!

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.
