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.""""

squidknuckle (22) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - NOV 14, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 Sample bottle from CT distributor. Clear glass -- never a good idea (I wish Belhaven would switch back to brown). Pours a dull hue of brownish orange. A lot of vanilla. Smooth, slightly clingy texture. A little goopy. Sweet, kind of marshmallowy finish. Sticky. Good college party curiosity beer for people afraid of dry things with subtle, nuanced flavors.

Ambree limpide, carbo moyenne, petit collet Aromes faibles, pain, caramel, cereales Autant le nez est faiblard autant en bouche cest bien meilleur. Bois legerement, vanille, fruit (mures). Un peu court mais bien agreable

DavidWoodruff (570) - Windsor, California, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Copper with an off-white head. Aroma is smokey with an odd chemical note. Wood, vanilla and smoke flavors with a slightly sweet malt finish. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Would love to try these flavor combinations in a 9% ABV brew. Interesting and fun.

moldovan9807 (161) - Oradea, ROMANIA - MAY 23, 2017

Dorqui (2233) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 23, 2017
Bottled 0,33L. Dark and hazy orange color, charged aspect with solid head resistance. Unusual sweetish and cognac nose, aroma of caramel and sweet woody. Unstable and very unbalanced taste, strong alcoholic and too much sweet body, mellow and warm mouth.

geolgau (169) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - MAY 22, 2017
Pale, clear amber, almost no (white) head. Aroma is pale and subtle. Notes of honey, wood, caramel and malts. Light body, a bit watery. Taste is sweet. Grassy hops, a bit of honey, caramel and a light oak flavor. It has a pilsner-ish feeling. It is a nice surprise, but too simple.

Rotaldinho (188) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 22, 2017
Light amber with a head that disappears quickly. Aroma is a light malt with vanilla from the oak. Sweet vanilla mixed with malt.

vbaudry (101) - - MAY 18, 2017
Orange/red robe, no foam. Nose with oak notes and caramel malt close to a sweet whisky. Medium body, quite sweet, aromas of caramel and whisky. Finish is juste some liquorous sweetness. Not totally bad but quite sickening, wouldnt be able to drink the whole bottle.

Oiolosse (125) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 16, 2017
Madera sutil y aromas tostados. Color cobrizo, con cabeza blanca que se desvanece. De cuerpo ligero a mediano, de carbonatacin media. El sabor es un poco dulce, con algunas nueces y notas de madera. Retrogusto dulce. Demasiada vainilla para mi gusto.
