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.""""

I must admit this is something different. That’s for sure. Still, I don’t find it very nice. If you like vanilla flavours in drinks with already a fruity character and if you enjoy whiskey.. Probably you’ll like this. Light/medium body, nice head that dissappears quickly. Not my kind of beer, yet I admit it’s different from others. Prost!

Biroholik (213) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 11, 2016
Kolor : Żółty/Złoty. W 100% klarowne.
Piana : Biała, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowata. Opada bardzo szybko. Brak lacingu na szkle.
Zapach: Jak na piwo z supermarketu to aromat jest bardzo złożony. Początkowo pojawiają się aromaty chmielowe, potem nieco słodowe akcenty. Wyczuwalny jest karmel, miód i vanillia. Po jakimś czasie pojawiają się również drzewne aromaty dębiny. Smak: Interesujący. Różnorodny. Najwięcej słodowych akcentów. W smaku : miód, toffi, karmel, vanillia. Bardzo smaczne, stosunkowo słodkie w odczuciu. Pojawiają się również nuty dębiny oraz whisky. Na samym końcu pojawiają się słodkie, ciasteczkowe detale. Wyczuwalny również łagodny, aromatyczny chmiel. Goryczka umiarkowana. Słodkawo-miodowy finisz. Perfekcyjnie zbalansowane.
Wysycenie: Wysokie.
Podsumowanie:
Piwo zakupione w angielskim Tesco (£1). Piwo to jest dojrzewające w dębowych beczkach.. Ciekawe, złożone w smaku i aromacie. Dobry balans słodowej bazy z umiarkowaną goryczką. Akcenty whisky oraz dębowej beczki nadają temu trunkowi szlachetnego znaczenia.

500ml can poured into a pint glass. Pours pale amber with a white fizzy head that fades quickly. Has a woody, caramel with a hint of vanilla aroma. Can taste the sweetness of the toffee and vanilla with the accent of whisky. Goes down smooth.

Alpha10 (497) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
2016/02/09 - Pours a clear, orange-copper colour with a thin, fizzy, off white head that immediately reduces. Aroma is bread, apple, butterscotch, oak, light vanilla, caramel and hints of whisky. Taste is oak, vanilla, whisky, bread and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is light to medium with smooth carbonation and a moderately sweet, slightly metallic, drying finish. Enjoyable, but nothing extraordinary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka 0,33l kolor bursztynowy, klarowny, piana nie występuje. Nagazowanie dobre, aromat whisky i karmelu, słodycz zbyt mocna, smak słodowy, trochę miodu.Goryczka nie jest wyczuwalna , w sumie dobrze pijalny napój słodowy z procentami, jako piwo nie zachwyca.

Perfectly balanced malty beer. Deep amber color, a lot of carb, almost no head. Smells wisky, tastes sweet malt. Love it

Wooden smells dominates and reminds on whiskey. Aroma has wood, malt and some vanilla. Taste is quite sweet with a light hoppy bitterness in the middle. Very delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

glacier (107) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 26, 2016
Szkockie piwo dojrzewające 77 dni w beczkach po whisky. Kolor bursztynowy. Piana szybko znika. Aromaty glownie slodkawe (miodowo-karmelowe, toffi, moze faktycznie w tle dalekim wanilia, niekiedy alkohol a la whisky). W smaku słodowe. pojawią się nuty dębowe, vanili, whisky. Dobrze pijalne piwo.

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle - Clear golden colour, medium white head, poor retention. Smoth oak nose with some vanilla and caramel, honey and some breadcrust. Taste is sweet malty with whiskey-like tone, some honey, vanilla and a touch of smoke. Medium body, soft carbonation, sweet finish, smooth texture. Nice, well rounded oak aged beer, I like it.
