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.""""

Clear copper pour. Fluffy off white head and surprisingly no lace. Sweet malts and oak on the nose. Bourbon, toffee, oak, and vanilla. Slight citric finish. Seemed like there was more more alcohol evident then the list 6.6% ABV

aroma has some serious pears, with a touch of vanilla. flavour is caramel, spices, surrounded by apples and pears. Its whiskey notes come through on the bitter sweet and, I think, gorgeous backend. it’s medium bodied and ultra smooth. this stuff is underrated, perphaps because its so easy to find a skunked bottle. i really wish innis and gunn would sell this in their singles boxes, most stores don’t know how to store this stuff!

Beer5000 (5903) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2009
330 ml bottle. Clear, golden body with a nice, but collapsing off-white head. Aroma is strong caramel with vanilla. Flavor is sweet caramel, vanilla, oak and descent bitterness, quite smooth. The aftertaste has a clear indication of whisky. There is a lot better and stronger flavored oak aged beers out there, but this is quite nice anyway.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle from Doboy, shared at our last tasting. Clear gold with a sturdy, creamy white head. Oak aroma quite evident, caramel, some earthy character as well. Medium body, smooth, silky mouthfeel, light carbonation. Toffe flavors up front, soft, subtle bitterness on the back side allows a gently sweet finish. I like the oak flavors and aroma, and found this quite enjoyable.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle. Pours bourbon-esque orange brown. Aroma has wood, scotch, caramel and toffee. Palate is buttery and smooth, and flavors are soothingly sweet. This beer suggests barrel-aging very strongly, mainly due to sweet residual scotch flavors and woodiness rather than complexity. A solid drink.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Compliments of doboy! Pours from clear bottle a clear, copper body and a lush, white head. Aroma of malty, with an oaky whiskyish, with a woody accent. Flavour was reminiscent of whisky, vanilla, butterscotch, warming alcohol notes (strong ale, after all), and (surprisingly) a hint of dill. The aftertaste is all vanilla and dill. Lovely beer from my peoples homeland! Thanks Ed!

Bottle, Clear amber color, small white head. Smells a bit like butter. Taste like microwave popcorn with butter... strange.. Long end

n49921 (108) - USA - FEB 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with very little head. Aroma is malty with a hit of sherry or a little scotch. Taste a caramel malt that ends with a bit of scotch or sherry taste. Very good.
