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.""""

Got this beer in a variety pack because it came with a glass and I was pleasantly surprised. Pours golden honey color with almost no head. Smells sweet and spicy. Taste-Vanilla and caramel sweetness. I thought I tasted a hint of honey so I looked it up because I am vegan. There is no honey so there is a third sweetness factor that i couldnt put my finger on. Mouthfeel- Refreshing, very drinkable. Overall great beer I will definitely have it again.

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

Caramel, vanilla, wood and some fruits in the aroma. Amber with a off-white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a interesting ale, drinkable.

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.

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.

2014.08 - gedeeld flesje van 33cl (met dank aan Cis/Inge), mooie aantrekkelijke lay-out - helder koperkleurig bier, onaantrekkelijk wit schuimpje - neus : vanille en mout - mond : vanille, licht zoet, tikje bitter

Ok öl. Är en bra ingångs öl för att få folk intresserade av annat än lager. Men inte så kul. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ruigo (1108) - PORTUGAL - AUG 26, 2014
33cl bottle. Clear golden colour with almost no head. Oak, malts and caramel in the aroma. Average carbonation and light body. Taste is more sweet than bitter with some liquor notes. Overall, not bad but boring beer.

Bork (172) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Very fruity with lots of vanilla and toffee. Fruits take over a bit too much and the aftertaste has an unpleasant soapy flavor to it. Different.
