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.""""

Pours clear brown with small white head; toffeish malty, honeyish aroma is also slightly spicy with hints of oak and a touch of citrus; malty flavor is sweet toffeish, tasting actually also - this was the first impression - quite a bit like those sweetened licorice powder candies (I dont know if they have any specific name, at least in english), and honey, with a somewhat spicy, dry, oaky finish; body is medium with moderate carbonation.

Ibrew2or3 (8283) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2010
Clear 11.2oz bottle pours clear copper with thin tan head. The aroma is smooth oak bleeding into sweet bourbon like booze and maybe a faint roasted malt note hinting at the beer that was poured into the barrel. The taste has soft well used oaky wood barrel notes, sweet tranquil boozy bourbon sweetness and vanilla. It then becomes oak and pure sweet booze into the finish. I get no beer notes after a few ounces. With concentration and getting into the last few sips of the from the bottle I think Im sensing malts or slightly roasted malts. I would prefer the beer shine through a bit more.

thb (811) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a yellowy-amber with a nice big head. Tastes more or less as advertised - big toffee and vanilla flavours, right from the start to the finish. The sugariness and alcohol do definitely give you that whiskey impression. Theres basically no bitterness, making it really unbalanced. Very smooth mouthfeel. Ive had this a few different times and its been wildly inconsistent. Maybe it has something to do with the clear glass bottle. I also think serving temperature has a particularly huge effect here.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - APR 23, 2010
Pours fairly light amber with a quick white head. The nose is almost offensive (to me, anyway), with a mixture of scotch, malt, and skunk dominating. The taste, however, is pleasantly much better. Virtually no hops noticable. Malt is moderately strong and quite sweet, with a bit of an oak and whiskey-like hue in the finish. Different from what Im used to but Id have it again.

ogivlado (7311) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 14, 2010
Bottled 330ml. -Nice clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, sweet nose. Biscuity malty, oaky and caramel with notes of vanilla and tiramisu cake. Sweet finish. Interesting and pleasant beer.

AndrewC (357) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
A present. Nice whiskey, cinnamon, vanilla flavours. Whiskey on the finish was a bit off putting though; felt like I was drinking Famous Grouse. Not really my kind of beer but okay I guess

Spab (3487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
330 ml clear bottle from LCBO. Pours a deep orange gold with virtually non-existent head but lots of big bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and oak. Flavour is bready, caramel and a definite oakiness that lingers through the mildly bitter finish. Decent.

scotinottawa (6) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010 does not count
Innis & Gunn Original (Scotland) 6.6% 330ml - $3.45 Oak aged beer with hints of toffee and vanilla. Very smooth finish. One of my favourites.

tgncc (3107) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2010
The aroma is bread and butter, some oak. The appearance is a clear dark yellow/amber, white head. The flavor is butterscotch, toffee. the finish is a mild hop bitering, mainly noble hops. Decent.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2010
12 oz bottle, honey-golden appearance with little head. No lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma is sweet with hints of honey, vanilla, and maltiness, also mixed in with some doughyness reminiscent of a pale lager. Spicyness also present. Taste is sweet and honeylike along with sharp bitterness, but not as complex as the aroma would suggest. Palate is smooth and sits well on the tongue. Not a bad beer.
