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.""""

33 cL clear bottle. Pours almost clear and golden yellow to orange with a small yet dense and off-white head. Dry malty and slight grassy hoppy aroma. Flavour is breadish malty, light sweet and with a mild roasted note. Caramelish too. Light bitterness showing through. Bitter and breadish malty in the finish.

Ungstrup (29807) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2005 An amber or nutbrown beer with a fine yellow head. The aroma is very fruity and very hoppy with notes of strawberries. The flavor is sweet malty with a very hoppy end. A really good beer. Compared to the cask strength, this is boring.

16th August 2008. Clear pale brown beer. Sweet with lots of vanilla and a little oak. Just a touch of hops buried under the vanilla.

Golden to amber color. Intense aroma, peculiar; malt, mushrooms, vegetables (artichokes…) ; sweet and lightly smoked. Interesting flavor, some malty sweetness, then similar sensations as for the aroma; correct bitterness, raising at the end. Really original. Thanks Rauchbier for this bottle.
