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.

Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, gyönyörű réz szín. Enyhe, tölgyfahordós illat. Angol ale-s ízvilág, élénk tölgyfahordós aromával, és egy kis karamellel, valamint vaníliával. Közepesen testes, erősen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Jól eltalált, finom sör.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Väri tumman, mutta kirkkaan kellertävä ja kuparinen, hyvin ohut vaahto, joka haihtuu nopeasti. Haju miedon hunajainen ja toffeinen. Maku kevyehkö ja imelä, hunaja ja toffee maistuvat jälkimaussa selvästi. Mitä pidemmelle tätä juo, alkaa maku ehkä jopa hieman ällöttää. Kahta ei pystyisi missään nimessä juomaan peräkkäin. Häivähdys viskiä maussa.

PL: Klarowne, bursztynowe. Ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana. W zapachu przede wszystkim miód, ciasteczka. Trochę karmelu. Smak złożony. Czuć whiskey. I to ona jest na pierwszym planie. Do tego trochę karmelu. No smakuje całkiem okej. Posmak troche maślany.

pushkinwow (2551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle. Amber with owh. Grainy, sweet, caramel, dry, not a fan of the finish, high carbonation, mild body, uninspired. Would write more but don’t want more beer and not terrible enough to inspire prose.

Bottle. Unusual and distinctive taste and smell, but pleasant. Amber coloured pour. A touch smoky.
