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.""""

A copper-coloured beer with a distinct smokey flavour, almost like a cheap whisky. Despite the cheap whisky aftertaste, this is an enjoyable beer, but one or two will do it for me, before I need a real beer.

Tap at Gordon Ramsay’s Burgr. Amber color with no head or lacing to speak of. Big malty, toffee aroma with a light woody dryness and dry apple. Taste is sweet with a light dry finish. Body is lighter and watery.

Bottle, 330 ml. Overall decent ale, nice foam, medium finish. A tad too much toffee in the aroma.

Lively, clear dark golden beer with a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with an edge of something I recognise but can’t place. Flavour is light, crisp and sweet and the same something I couldn’t pick out in the flavour is there too. Something from the way it’s matured in the barrels, perhaps? I’m not in love with it but it’s nice enough.

clear amber with moderate carbonation & one finger head with heavy lacing. Aroma of herbal hop with toasted malt. vanilla. The aroma changes to boozy whisky with moderate sweetness. long boozy finish. surprising taste compared to aroma. i would drink again.

demannu (110) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Very weak aroma. Not much to mention. Not an special looking beer one poured. Palate is clean with a slight oily feel. More much carbonation. Very sweet. Every flavor more is sweet which combined together is just too much.
