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.""""

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 [330ml bottle, gift from Lee - cheers mate!] I had been planning to have a Rochefort 8 as my 300th beer, but when the time came I fancied something lighter, and after scanning the beers in the cupboard decided that as Innis & Gunn are one of my favourite beer brands, this would be a good one for the 300th. It pours a gingery amber colour, with no head and rather excessive carbonation. The aroma is of vanilla and oaky wood. The taste is of vanilla and cream soda with lots of woodiness and a buttery finish, which means its much smoother than the fizziness would suggest. A slight sour/cough mixture whisky taste comes through afterwards, and you can taste this and the woodiness long after you have finished drinking it. Perhaps not as good as some of their limited editions, but a fine beer nevertheless. Re-rate 20/3/2009: Previous comments stand, but less fizzy and more buttery then I remember; enjoyed it more as a result. Adjusted ratings accordingly.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2008
330mL Bottle. Poured clear medium amber colour with a solid off-white head. Aromas of toffee, toasted malts, sweet fruit and oak. Flavours of creamy caramel/toffee and vanilla,with a good malt base. Finishes balanced and soft on the bitterness. I would have liked to see a bit more emphasis on the oak flavours but overall I was still very impressed by its flavouring. I will defintely be looking for more of this in the future.

Clear 330ml bottle served in an English pint glass. Light amber body topped by a diminishing head. Tons of sediment floating around, I am guessing it is wood chips. Sweet vanilla wafts up from the glass as well as a good deal of bourbon. Tastes of wood, bourbon, and vanilla. Has a gritty texture from the wood particles. I am not quite sure how to rate this, I thought it tasted good, but it does not taste like beer at all. More like a shot of bourbon mixed into some seltzer water. The base beer does not come through the wood or whiskey at all.

moseslikesbeer (183) - conestoga, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of whiskey and vanilla and English malts. This tasted like an English bitter to me with some rum or whiskey poured in with it. Very bitter sweet palate and hard to drink quickly.

Bottle. Amber body with a light off white body. Lots of vanilla, light fruit, light whiskey, sweet sugar, and light oakiness. Has a vanilla cream soda feel with very light barreling. Sessionable at a price.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2012 poured clear amber with a small white head. Malty, earthy aroma with mild vanilla note. Smooth but slightly oily on the tongue. Taste of malt sweetness with nice woody notes. Slight earthy undertone and some vanilla in the finish.

clear glass....do I need a glass? Yeah i guess so. Pours a watery looking light amber. no head. no action. Aroma of a grolsch like lager and oak. Hint of whiskey.Nice smooth oaky flavor but it still reminds me of a german/european lager. The whiskey is very present and surprisingly smooth. Nice smoothness and a light [,lager like] flavor. The ABV will sneak right up on you but this beer, although very easy to drink isn’t a beer I want to keep drinking.
