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.""""

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes

Bottle @ Bothy Bar, Mac Donald Hotel, Kinlochleven. Amber colour, white foam. Soft carbonation. Aroma of caramel and tropical fruits. Light hints of oak and honey. Little bit tart with sweet hints. Watery. Nothing special.

Bottle at party. Poured a dark orange with a slight head. Smells slightly of butter and sweet honey. Tastes mildly sweet and engaging. Fair

A rich golden colour with a slight white top. Tastes of malt, toffee and oakwood. A buttery, medium body. Certainly an interesting beer that you can’t really go calling bland in any way.

kustie (153) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Alko. Golden color and small head. Vanilla, caramel and oak in aroma. Taste is quite sweet with same elements as in aroma. A bit soapy flavor also.

fordest (2005) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2014
From a bottle in Airth, Scotland. I had the rum finish in Vegas but never rated it. I loved it so I started seeking these out when I got to the UK. I have more to try. This one was not as good but just as interesting. The oak and vanilla were there but in a much more mild form. I really like this brand.

Tap. Interesting beer--a unique yeast quality brings out the good bready, sweet malts. Almost refreshing.
