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.""""

reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Poirs a golden honey color...crystal clear...with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet and malty...loaded with butterscotch and toffee...slight oak. Flavor follows suit...sweet but pleasant...tastes like some scotches I’ve had without the boozyness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery and the finish is dry, earthy, and sort of biscuity.

Clear orange, golden pour with a quick fading thick white head. Left some light lace. Aroma was full of rich vanilla, caramel and light wood. Very pleasing. Flavors were also full of vanilla, light oak, big caramel, and a lingering malty sweetness. The mouthfeel is what sets this apart. It’s extremely creamy and smooth, carbonation light and fitting. This is one of the most flavorful yet drinkable beers I have come across in a long time. One for the masses.

mbgrayson (774) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Pours a clear amber gold. Thin white head, that disappears quickly. Aroma is a bit skunky, with malt in the background. Taste is oaky and rich, with lots of malty sweetness. I would love to try this one fresh from the brewery. Would be even better. Still a thumbs up.

tmrmwel (2089) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear amber, with a finger thick head. Flavour is of sweet malts and oak, with notes of tropical fruit, candi sugar and sweet vanilla. Flavour is very sweet, with an almost overwhelming vanilla presence, and some oakyness adding a vinous touch. It has a port wine-ish finish, with oak, vanilla and notes of strawberry. It’s a good brew, but the combination of oak and vanilla was just a bit over the top.

3.2
berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - AUG 12, 2011
Bottle (33cl) from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Clear amber colour. Small offwhite head that disappears completely. Aroma of butterscotch, vanilla, citrus, wood. Fairly flat carbonation, medium body. Taste is quite sweet and malty, nicely balanced by a good deal of acidity. Mild bitterness.

3.5
northropfrye (3601) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013 This was one of those beers I tried when I was first getting into craft beer. If anything, I like it now more than ever. Sweet, oaky, nice aroma, vanilla. Palate is a bit flat, I couldn’t stir up a head after the initial one, even with swirling. Nice and tasty overall, though.

3.3
HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
330ml bottle. Amber/orange colour, not much head. Aroma is toffee and butterscotch, taste is sweet malts and some woodsiness. Good texture. Overall, something interesting.

3.4
rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
Appearance: Brown-golden transparent, medium carbonation. Huge, thick, frothy head, which dissipates slowly. Aroma: Caramel, scotch, vanilla, toffee, bananas. Palate: Smooth and creamy. Soft finish. Taste: Not as complex as the other innis & gunn’s I’ve tried. Fairly sweet, not sour or bitter at all. A bit bland, to be honest, but still a pleasant drink.

4.2
dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Strange...a butterscotch aroma, but in a good, intentional way. I actually like this quite a bit. Some like oaky flavor, very easy finish. Not an everyday beer, but certainly worthy.

3.2
niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle from Tesco. Pours amber with little head. Honey, carbonated, oak smoke finish. Refreshing and feels lighter than it’s ABV.
