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.""""

GreenCat (47) - SLOVENIA - DEC 3, 2016
0,33 l bottle. Pours clear golden orange with small off white head, good retention. Aroma is dominated by wood and liquor (whiskey). Some toffee is present and light floral and herbal hop notes. Taste is light sweet and moderate woody bitterness. Body is medium, slick with light carbonation. Maybe too much wood for my taste, but this is decent brew.

Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy copper pour with thin and frothy white head. Very good retention. Interesting smell, lots of wood, touch of liquor. Medium body with oily texture. Soft carbonation adds to the overall smooth feel. Moderately bitter with slightly sweet aftertaste. Lovely aroma, strong wood presence, liquor, herbs, vanilla, caramel. Very smooth, lovely balanced. Boozy and warming aftertaste. Overall, very nice brew. Perfect drink for winter evenings.

johnarktor (30) - FRANCE - NOV 25, 2016
Aroma: caramel/ toffee malt, faint floral hops, oak wook and leaves, old whiskey or rum, pain dpices (underneath) ; Appearance: clear amber, minimal head ; Taste: medium sweetness, very lightly bitter ; Palate: medium body, slightly oily feel, soft carbonation, not very long finish, a little bitterness at the end. A very scottish tasting beer that made me feel a little like I was drinking a light whiskey. Overall: this beer offers a high degree of aromatic complexity, albeit based on a otherwise fairly average and somewhat disappointing basis.

VueltaBirrista (53) - Murcia, SPAIN - OCT 19, 2016
De un color caramelo dorado super brillante y limpio, con una escassima corona de espuma, que termina por disiparse casi totalmente. En la primera esnifada te entra un aroma a vainilla que rete t de las Danets. Luego llega el olor a caramelo y roble. Mucho roble. En boca ms de lo mismo: vainilla, madera, el caramelo masticable de toffee de toda la vida y al final, cuando ya casi no tiene espuma debido a su escasa carbonatacin, esa sensacin de no saber muy bien si ests ante una birra o un bourbon.

Antzrhere (96) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
Pours clear golden honey coloured with white head. Well carbonated for the style. Aroma of sweet vanilla and toffee. Taste is smooth vanilla, biscuit, toffee and butter scotch. Sweet, minimal bitterness, with no noticable hop or yeast flavours. Probably the best example of oak imparted flavours in a beer ive tasted to date with a great degree of complexity, even if the actual base beer itself is mediocre.

Cokemonkey11 (603) - - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours medium chestnut amber with a thin thin white foam subsiding average. Scent is light scotch ale. Light smoke. Taste is vanilla, oak, resin, toasted malt, and notes of pepper. Finish is peppery and a bit unsavory whiskey ethanol. Very good.

PanMarek (301) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Pale, cloudy, light orange pour with quick, beige foam. Malty nose with toffee and some caramel and a little vanilla. Flavors are sweet with long duration, more caramel and vanilla and some oakiness. Medium body, light fizz. A pleasantly flavorful surprise for a 6.6% beer.
