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.""""

tdtm82 (1700) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle, bought from random offie in London, consumed at home, poured into pint glass. Excellent white lacing, bog standard copper colour with good measured carbonation, aroma is oak, diacrytl, butterscotch, spices, wood and egg. Really not great. Taste is oak, wood chips, alcohol, plum, leather, some spirits, burning finish of plum, wood and alcohol. Interesting combination. Has evened out a little and is one to age but just not doing anything for me whatsoever.

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 18, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a clear gold/copper with a big white head. Aroma was a muddled mix of malt, vanilla, wood, grain. Taste: very muddled malts, vanilla, wood, bourbon, grain, sweet-ish. Thinnish body. Overall not a bad beer - but it is very undefined... seemed to be lost.

Honestly they dont get much better than this beer. They do everything so right. The beer pours bright in the glass, the hop and oak aroma is stunning, nice malt flavour underneath. If you havent tried this one run dont walk, to the store now to buy a bottle!

Zoney (144) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle. A very short head with light head. A very thought of beer it feels. The oak feels very right in such a beer. The oak is very prominent, and I like it!

j12601 (9799) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Big vanilla and bourbon notes, sweet corn aromas behind them. Light sweetness, and a bit more of that sweet corn liquor flavor. Wood, but very faint, not as pronounced as in the rum version. Sweet vanilla and warming whisky on the finish.
