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.""""

This beer was hard to drink, I think. Thought it would be better. Smells uncertain. Tastes not good strangely. The aftertaste is perhaps a little thin but okay.

Ordinær og kedelig Strong Ale. Meget fin og klar farve. Savner den gode smag af øl.

This is OK. A bit more palatable than the rum-aged version I had recently. Nose is first malty with caramel, toffee, a bit of oak, some tobacco notes, which also show up front and center on in the flavor, strong oaky flavors, almost a bourbon type oaky note (without the corn or wheat graininess of bourbon). Semi-sweet finish is sweet malt and oak. That’s pretty much the theme of this beer, sweet toffee malts and oak.

Bottle at home.The taste has a subtle maltiness with a hint of sweet. Okay but lacks depth of flavour.

The beer tasted nice and it smelled reasonable. Good slightly syrup like vibes and nice aftertaste. Perfect for a lamb BBQ muddafucka!

Sweet malty smell and even sweeter taste, buttery taste though...prominent..no hops at all, buttery-ness not a great attribute though that’s the most prominent...

Whiskey aroma is the overall impression of this beer. Golden White head, nose - caramel, malt, vanilla, taste adds a more malty bread. Fine alcohol balance. Sweet and very faint bitterness.

Hieman kuplivaa ja vaahtoavaa. Nestemäisen hunajan värinen, läpinäkyvä mutta sameahko. Oltuaan hetken hapen kanssa tekemisissä tuoksussa on selkeästi toffeisuutta ja tammitynnyriä. Maku on pehmeä, kermainen ja toffeinen. Mieleen nousee mausteinen kuivakakku, vanilja ja tammisuus ovat miellyttäviä. Hyvin etäinen Lapin Kulta yrittää puskea läpi, mutta se kannattaa jättää huomiotta. (7.3.2015)
