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.""""

Lowe1983 (1480) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts, toasted malts, and oak. Flavor is the same with a slightly bitter finish with not too much oak. Not too strong but not too weak. A somewhat decent blend.

dnoaksson (781) - , SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2009
Öl med en rik palett av smaker. Frisk och fruktig, med en genomgående karaktär av kola. Frestar också med en inlindande honungssmak. Möjligtvis i sötaste laget för att nå de riktigt höga höjderna.

daknole (10828) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. Amberish color. Light head. Aroma is malty and smells very sweet. I get some booze(scotch)in the nose as well. Flavor is sweet with a dose of scotch? flavor. Not bad, pretty smooth.

McWorta (1339) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 27, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2012 Light CO2 a bit spicy, frothy head and some nut tastes. Orange-brown...ale colour. Light fruity and sweetwith a dash of sourness. Well developped body a bit oily texture some fizzy carbonation. All showing a long pleasant finish. Rightly balanced and the oak rounds it all off. A must give it a go!

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Amber body, no head. Malty and oaky. Taste of hops, apples. Quite strong for my likes.

PolishHammer (124) - Norwalk, Connecticut, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Medium sized egg-shell colored head which dissapears quickly. A slight skunk smell, but also some sweetness. Golden color. Flavor is complex...definitely some unfermented sugars, a bit of alcohol taste, and some vanilla, and a bit of citrus (grapefruit?). I keep thinking I’m tasting some oak, but that’s prob because I’m reading the word all over the label. Not one of my favorites, but I can appreciate it. Very well rounded and mellowed, presumably from the aging process.

BiddleBrau (1128) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Clear and rich amber color but little to no head to speak of. Malty nose with some oak aromas. Toasty malt, notes of vanilla and oak, hops are very light and it finishes a bit dry with a medium body.

marctacoma (35) - Fircrest, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Clear Bottle Pours reddish-gold, aroma is pleasant - cola is the best I can come up with - but understated. Flavor is subtle, and incredibly smooth. There’s little to point to here that would indicate the oaking other than general smoothness. No vanilla or sweetness that bourbon casks might impart, but that might make it too saccharine. Doesn’t taste like 6.6%. Not bad, not bad.
