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.""""

Thanks to a friend who split this bottle with me. We poured it into snifters and were greeted with a slight white head that sat on top of the most awesome caramel honey colored brew I have seen in a while. The whisky aroma was well present in the nose. I also got some nice woodiness and a slight fruit aromas as well. The flavor was good I got a little caramel sweetness from the malts and the barrel aging worked well with it. Hints of vanilla and some smoke came thru as it warmed. A good brew I have had it in my hands a few time and never pulled the plug on buying it. I will the next time I see it though.

2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 14C Scottish Export)

AROMA: Sweet butterscotch candy; some light apple character. Wood is faint. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Rusty brownish/orange; mostly clear. Small, tan foam mostly dissipates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Red apple flavor, but not cider-tasting per se. Mild toffee and butterscotch notes, with a strong sensation at the finish. Wood character is faint and imparts minor earthy flavor. Some butter in the aftertaste. Almost not hop presence. Not bad, but not much of a palette to latch onto. 12/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-low body and CO2. Feels flat and a little slick. No alcohol presence. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Has the basic elements of the style, but is in no way superior because it’s oak aged. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 31/50

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.

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.

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.

I really like this beer for it’s extra 80 and the tastes of Carmel and whiskey oak aged. Barrel.
