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.""""

750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a tulip. Pours clear golden-amber with a medium dense white head. The head decays to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. The nose has aromas of caramel, citrus, honey, oak and a hint of hops. The flavour is moderately honey sweet with a distinct oaky quality, balanced with subtle herbal hops. The finish is short and malty. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this was better than I was expecting. A pleasant light ale with a reasonable depth. Might be nice on a warm summer afternoon. 2011-04-22

Bottle at The Porter in ATL. Pours amber-scotch with slight white head. Little lacing. Nose is all vanilla, toffee, sweet, sweet, and sweet. Taste is brown sugar, more toffee, caramel. No hops. Pretty one-note, and a giant sugar bomb to boot. Not cool.

A lovely and unique tasting beer, Rich oak malt scotch flavours dominate the palate with suttle after hints of vanilla and butterscotch, usually a flaw but in the case lovely.

flying_pig (1621) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2011
This one is a rich copper in colour with a large, foamy & very slightly off-white head that reduces to about a finger sized one and then lasts. Oak from the maturing process however the main aroma is a mix of sweet honey and vanilla with hints of caramel. Hints of butterscotch too. Similar to the smell and is also sweet & pleasant. Vanilla is the upfront taste followed by butterscotch and a caramel & toffee combination.A warm, light bitter finish and a sweet lingering taste. Very smooth and creamy with a medium body and light carbonation making this a very easy to drink beer. An excellent beer that tis sweet and pleasant all round, a beer to be savoured & enjoyed. - - - - - www.abarwithnoname.wordpress.com

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
Bottle at the Shark Club. Pours clear tawny/orange, thin white head, no real lacing. Nose is immediately foul - vanilla, cough syrup, loads of fruit, oak, touch of sweet cigar tobacco. God the oak and sugar just dominate the poor barley. Flavours of sweet oak, more coconut and vanilla, very mouthcoating, slick mouthfeel. Tough to finish, I really struggle with the sweetness. Not nearly so bad as some of the special editions, however.

Bouteille 330ml sous le nom "Original Oak Aged Beer". De couleur dorée et claire. Nez boisé (fût de chêne), léger de vanille, légèrement malté de caramel toffee sucré avec de faibles notes fruitées (agrumes) et des traces de beurre. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses et sirupeuses. Léger goût fruité (agrumes) accompagné d’un moyen-léger goût de vanille lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel toffee avec des notes de beurre ainsi que des traces de miel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un goût boisé (fût de chêne) asséchant jusqu’en finale, avec de faibles notes d’alcool doux et de noix. Post-goût moyen-long et aux notes sèches, composé d’un léger goût de fût de chêne avec des traces fruitées (zest d’agrumes).

Tasted with Ryan outside of Woody’s - Pours yellow and a bit copper. Aromas of toffee, caramel, vanilla, orange creme, cream sickle, lots of oak. Very wood driven is this beer. Palate is fat like a creme soda. Can’t taste any alcohol though. Not much fruit to be found here. All oak and oak derivatives. Aroma good. Palate weak.
