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.""""

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!

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.

Pale amber color. Relatively mild oak flavor. Smooth and slightly warming, somewhat like scotch. Good, somewhat different ale.

33cl Bottle at a restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland. Golden amber colour, white head. Sweet aroma of oak, vanilla, toffee. Flavour is very much the same, almost no bitterness. Too sweet imo. Light bodied.

Jag kan inte skriva annat än direkt vidrig. Den gick rätt i slasken. Det får vara gränser för vad man ska dricka.

This is probably among my favourite beers. It’s something about the taste that I like.

Vanilla, toffee, and nougat aroma. Flavor has a nice dose of vanilla and has a distinct butteriness that is not entirely bad - it works for the beer. Off dry, OK mouthfeel. Not a bad beer.

Suspicious clear glass bottle - why do they use them? How much more pricey is tinted glass? Surely it’s worth the price of having a drinker buy your beer again. Anyway.... This pours amber with a finger of frothy head, which is quick to disappear. A bit of sulphur on the nose, but not much of anything really. Possibly a faint toffee smell. In the mouth it’s sweet, with lots of caramel and honey. Then there’s a bit of wood, but it’s not a vanilla taste - somehow this manages to taste like artificial wood flavouring. (How is that even possible?) What this reminds me of is a very milky coffee with caramel syrup added to it. The mouth feel is thin and it’s way too carbonated. I can’t say I get much on the finish besides sugar and the gassy taste of forced carbonation. This is a dull, mass produced, careless beer masquerading as craft - which is pretty damn insidious.

Tried on bottle. Colout is a nice brownish, dark, amber and the head is light and rich. Taste is sweet with the aroma adding banana and toffee, very little bitterness.
