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.""""

Ginger and toffee nose. Nice appearance but head disappears. Good structure but doesnt refresh on the end. Overall, an option to go to if you end up in a mono-pub but not if youre in a well stocked pub.

MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Transparent nut brown, wispy beige head. A bit more heat and butterscotch than the rum oak Gunn. More malty, less spiced than oak, heavy vanilla and way too much butter in finish.
