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.""""

From a 330ml bottle on 8/11/2012. Pours golden with a tiny head which disappears immediately. Has a sweet malty aroma with toffee, caramel and vanilla all present. The flavour is similar with lots of sweet toffee and caramel up front, along with a touch of booziness, The oak is quite noticeable, with the beer exhibiting a light but distinct scotch whiskey like finish. The bitterness is medium and the texture is slightly oily. An interesting and enjoyable beer.

Bottle. Clear amber to yellow color, fading white head. Intense vanilla and bourbon aroma, vanilla and toffee, reminds me of a bourbon cask aged scotch. Light taste, decent sweetness, very low bitterness, lightly sour, slightly astringent. Medium texture, average low carbonation. More vanilla and toffee in the aftertaste. My first entry into wood aged beer, very pleasant, very promising.

Birthday beer at the Rhu Cafe. Another winner from this brewery. Malty sweet start with nice hopping. The ABV is certainly there to support the maltiness. Then there is the vanilla which runs as a silky scarf around the experience. Great to see this in the Cafe.

Bottle 0.33 l, Piwnica, Worcław, Poland.
Złote piwo z obfitą i puszystą pianą oraz słodowym, lekko drewnianym i alkoholowym aromacie. W smaku lekko wodniste, początkowo trochę słodowe, minimalnie miodowe, lekko leśne z alkoholową goryczką i rozgrzewającym finiszem.

ryanhunter_4 (128) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 21, 2015
500 ml bottle poured at home. Pours an orange/amber color with a white head that dies quickly. Smells sweet; first thought was honey but some grassy aroma as well. Taste is sweet, almost sickly. Honey and a bit of alcohol to round it out. Little bit of carbonation. Not what I was expecting; I had this before and had anticipated much more bitterness. Still it’s drinkable.

Brew_Cat (97) - St. Ives, Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2015
33cl bottle bought from local liquor store. Pours clear orange with small diminishing white head, no lacing. Light to medium body, smooth almost watery texture, bitter sweet finish with light aftertaste. Aromas not as rich as I would expect. Caramel, toffee, honey, oak, vanilla, toasted malts, light bitterness, some sourness resembling apple cider, hints of citrus. Decent ale.

Brilliant amber color. Almost no head with minimal lacing, but very bubbly. Tasty aroma and flavor of smoky toffee, almost bread like, but more on the bitter side with a pleasant fruity citrus sensation. Warming rich and almost creamy. Prickly and a bitter mouthcoating finish but well intensified. Ending with a nice smoky aftertaste. Very good beer overall, great unique fresh smoky feel.

rami_pl (779) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 27, 2015
butelka, Pod Mosteczkiem. Przejrzyste, jasne, z kiepskawa piana. Aromaty glownie slodkawe (miodowo-karmelowe, toffi, moze faktycznie w tle dalekim wanilia, niekiedy alkohol a la whiski). W smaku rpwniez slodkie, pojawiaja sie jakies delikatne utki owocowe, pozatem to co w aromacie, nieco lepkawe w ustach, dosc ciezkie, z goryczka odalkoholowa. Moze poza miodowo-karmelowymi klimatami - reszta bardzo stonowana. Beczki a la drewno nie czuc. sumarycznie - rozczarowanie, ale bez jakichs tragedii
