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.""""

dchmela (2834) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2008
330ml bottle poured in a snifter. Pours a brownish amber with a medium white head. Big oak and sour vanilla aroma. The vanilla was so overwhelming I wasn’t sure I could finish it. Taste was much better, though. Smooth crisp and malty with just hint of the vanilla and oak. Finishes dry with a slight oakiness. Interesting beer, but not worth what I paid for it.

bhensonb (12467) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
330 ml bottle. Dated 08 Jan 09. Dark copper amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is lightly malt, much like Newcastle Brown. Medium body. Slightly sweet. Rather oaky. Mild, lightly spicey hop. Bitter builds with time. Leaves a tingle behind. Seems a bit of malt whisky notes. Pretty good.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 333ml bottle amber reddish color small white head. Looks pretty nice. Taste is very sweet of caramel and toffee. First few drinks are very nice but I got a bit annoyed after a while.. But overall I still think it was an above average beer

wyzzywyz22 (2102) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, BB West Kirby. Pretty nasty sweet, woody whisky flavour. Not what I really look for in a beer. Seems somehow artifical. 77 day process? Don’t waste yer time.

esox (1189) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2008
330 ml bottle. Small white head. Clear, deep reddish / amber liquid. Lots of vanilla and sweet caramel malt. Low bitteration and sharp carbonatioin. Flavor is mostly sweet but dries up a bit in the slightly woody finish. Almost too sweet for me. Clear oak notes in the finish. A bit thin moutfeel.

patricks110 (2076) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2008
Great beer. Tastes like a hint of Whiskey in it. This is because it is aged in oak barrels. Crisp flavour.
