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.""""

WOW! The only bad thing I can say about this beer is that it has a rather thin head that disapears quickly. Other than that, its got a lovely colour, it smells faintly of a lovely scotch, and tastes of it moreso, strong tastes of oak and butterscotch. Its just awesome to behold!

Bottle purchased in Atlanta, Ga. Carbonated, copper pour with a nice lasting head. Buttery aroma but also somehow sharp at the same time. Who still bottles in a clear bottle? 77 days in the Oak has made this far less horrible than I imagined. Now it is a bit sharp followed by some odd malt flavors, but it is the overwhelming butter level that makes this nasty. There is a touch of dark fruit in there that might be described as bad dates or prunes. Has a bit of alcohol to it as well. Creamy mouth feel and medium body. I could not finish the bottle but I finished my glass. That should be enough to remind me not to get this again.

muffel (150) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Pours a clear amber/golden color with a very thin white head. Medium carbonation. Smells a bit hoppy at first and somewhat reminds me of a Pils. Aroma is malty with notes of vanilla, citrus, toffee and oak. Strong frutiness in there as well. A lot less bitter than I thought. Long creamy and sweet finish. Very interesting and refreshing beer.

Bottle. Not very good. Aroma in glass was almost malt liquor. Carbonated fairly heavily, Hints of citrus hops are there but well hidden.

Capa (3020) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Pours a pretty copper with a white head. Toffee, light caramel, some malts, vanilla, and oak in the aroma. Watery feel to the body. Flavor of light caramel malts, vanilla, some toffee, light oak, and some sweetness to it. A decent brew.

jeff789 (1408) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Pours exactly what you see through the clear bottle with a somewhat sustained white head... Big whiff of vanilla/oak to start with some fruitiness underneath... Big oak flavor, almost scotch/bourbony, malty backbone with some fruits... Mildly dry finish, lingering oakiness, medium bodied, nice beer... Almost too oaky/bourbony, kind of got old before i finished the beer... Very Very one note...

Linnet (1758) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2010
Amber colour, off-white head. Ar: Sweet malts, diacetyl, butter, honey, some oak sugar. F: Same as in the nose, overwhelmingly buttery, toffee, acidity, oak, perfume. M: Average. T: Dont like this one, incredibly overrated here in Sweden.

bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle.ith Pours a very deep amber with a white creamy head. Minimal lacing. Very nice looking beer in the glass. True to the description huge vanilla aromas along with some bourbon toffee and a little wood. Flavours are much the same as the aromas thought the vanilla is slightly more restrained replaced by malt sweetness. Minimal bitterness. The vanilla makes this slightly one dimensional but never the less a really nice beer.

Overall a pretty decent beer. Not particularly hoppy and a bit more sulfur than Id like, but its extremely refreshing and easy to drink while retaining a respectable amount of class.

I can find nothing critical to say about this beer. The aroma is like ambrosia right off the bat. Beautiful scents of vanilla and toffee hit you, and you can discern a hint of malt already drifting upwards. A beautiful caramel flavor hits the palate as soon as you take a sip. It is a very complex beer with beautiful vanilla overtones that follow through to the finish. The finish itself is long and almost sweet still...this is my absolute favorite beer right now.
