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.""""

Pours a light brown body with foamy, creamy head. Fragrance isn’t spectacular, but flavor makes up for it. Tastes of malt, oak, caramel, and a hint of butterscotch. Creamy palate that is extremely smooth. I would marry this beer if it asked me. Of course I’m sure the US would have a problem with that. Excellent beer.

Metalchopz (3685) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
Nice presentation in a clear bottle that is embossed and good looking labels. Pours a copper colour with a bubbly-foam head that has decent retention. Lacing is left, kind of thin, but all around. Caramel and floral nose, that is well-mixed. Slick mouthfeel. Wow ! The taste starts on caramel, then a smokey note kicks in and stays. Nutty touches are also found in there, and maple syrup in the aftertaste. Very well-balanced flavours. Expensive for a beer, but worth the price to see if you enjoy it. I know I did, and have more in the cellar.

Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10

Aroma: The nose has some wood to it, vanilla, bread, and a touch of whiskey.
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-caramel color with pretty much no head.
Flavor: The taste is pretty much a simple, but well-made, malty/roasted sweetness.
Palate: The feel of this one is extremely smooth, creamy, and somewhat light of body.
Overall Impression: This is one of those beers that I must have seen around a million times, but never bothered to purchase/rate, and I’m not really sure why. I know everybody has beers like that, where they finally try it and think to themselves "Why have I never rated this?" Anyway, all you really need to know about this one is that is really smooth. Verbatim from my notes: "SMOOTH, SMOOTH, SMOOTH." So, I’ll just leave it there.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2011 Bottle sampled at Brewfest 2010 NYC on Gov Island. Pours a golden amber body with no head, and some minimal lacing. Aroma is very light vanilla. Mouthfeel is extremely smooth - definitely a session brew with light malty notes of vanilla, honey, and wood.

hayduke (5732) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 26, 2010
From a restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland. This poured a whiskey color with a thin white head. Nose of booze, with vanilla, toffee, malts, and of course oak. Medium body with a smooth creamy mouthfeel. Lightly bitter flavor with lots of oak. Bitter finish. Good Scotch beer.

Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2010
bottle in Edinburgh pub, ugly looking bottle, corono like beer. Smell: malty, sugary. Taste: also malty and sugary, very stump and a bit too sweet.

Muggus69 (2807) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2010
330ml, All-Bar-One, London. Couldn’t resist when I saw this on the men. Suprisingly clean gold body with some whispy lace. Distinctly strong wood aroma; vanilla oakiness, smoked malt, earthy undertones, maple syrup and citrus fruit. Smells damn good! Reasonably low carbonation, richly bodied, sticky texture. Fantastic malt and oak flavours drive the body; vanilla, maple syrup, burnt wood, muscat, bitter orange, bread crust. Such a pleasure to slowly sniff and savour. Wish beers like this were more common place!

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear light reddish brown with a short-lived off white head. Nose has some slight caramel and vanilla, sweet and malty. Thin, slightly sweet, some caramel, oak, vanilla, light malts. Almost no hops.

Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2010
Sweet peachy aroma which continues through into the mouth. Very little hop aroma or bitterness. Finish is gentle and malty. A pleasant well-crafted beer.I think calling it English might cause a few hackles to rise north of the border!
