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.""""

hank37 (188) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2015
Not much oak on the nose, a slight caramel note. Oak comes into its own in the taste dept. Lending vanilla and spice. Slight chewy toffee flavour. Pleasant.

Pours a caramel coloured body with a small white head, low carbonation. The taste of oak is very clear, but also includes nodes of malt and bitter hops on the side

Bottle from Waitrose. Really surprised that I haven’t gotten around to rating this yet. Dark orangey gold, not all that much carbonation. The famous oak and vanilla is undeniable, with some orange peel, whiskey and woodsmoke. Really sweet, sickly for a while, then it pulls back with a balancing bitter/sour note. Kumquat and caramel notes in the finish. A funny beer. It has problems but it’s decent overall. And the 6.6% is warming (especially for someone who’s been on a low-boost diet for the past few weeks).

660ml bottle pouring golden with gentle carbonation and thin white head. Not much lacing. Lovely vanilla, light whiskey, biscuity, oaky aroma with some berry. Vanilla, malt and berry with balancing bitterness and light body. Dry finish. Deliciously, unusual ale. Now for the rest of it :0)
