Brewed by Belhaven for Innis & Gunn
Originally marketed simply as Innis & Gun Oak Aged Beer. "Original" was added later.

""""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.""""

Got this beer in a variety pack because it came with a glass and I was pleasantly surprised. Pours golden honey color with almost no head. Smells sweet and spicy. Taste-Vanilla and caramel sweetness. I thought I tasted a hint of honey so I looked it up because I am vegan. There is no honey so there is a third sweetness factor that i couldnt put my finger on. Mouthfeel- Refreshing, very drinkable. Overall great beer I will definitely have it again.

21-11-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Lidl, somewhere in The Netherlands). The looks of the beer are nice. The beer has a nice amber golden color. It is a crystal clear beer. On top of the beer some rough offwhite foam is formed. Foam retention is rater low. A minimal drape is left after a while. The color reminds a bit of Whisky...something that comes back in both the smell and the taste. The beer has some lovely aromas. Some sweet malts, with a tiny fruity touch. Hops give some floral notes. The smell is mainly filled with lovely oak wood aroma's, reminding me a lot of whiskey. I smell strong aromas of vanilla, toffee and oak wood. It has a nice warming, slightly spicy nose. I love the depth of the smell, it's done very nicely. The oakwood is more than clearly present, without being overwhelming. The taste of the beer also is very nice. It is pretty much the same as the smell. It has some good sweet malts and some sweet tones from the oak and vanilla. Hops give a nice floral note and a good bitterness. The oaks also gives a tiny sour touch. This results in a well balanced beer. The palate of the beer is fine. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium body, smooth and medium low carbonation. The finish of the beer is not to long. It contains a clear alcohol flavour and some hints of oak, but it isn't to strong. All in all, a nice beer with clear oak wood, but it is to to complicated to drink. It remains easy drinkable. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 This was a great find today. A very tasty bottle. Nutty and malty with that delicious barrel/scotchy taste. All without being too heavy.

craftyrocker (85) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2017
330mL bottle (old gold and red label), BB Nov 17. $3.50 in the bargain trolley. Appearance: Amber body. Off-white head. 3 Aroma: Oak, spice, caramel and honey. 8 Taste: Woody/oak with bourbon sweetness. Interesting but lacks structure without much malt. Awkward hollow finish. Moderate bitterness. 7 Palate: Thin body, overcarbonated. 1 Overall: The oak notes differentiate it from other beers, but the beer remains one dimensional. 14

Buena cerveza de cuerpo denso, sabor a malta con toques de madera seguramente debido a su maceración en barril

Aus der kleinen Flasche getrunken (Danke an Constanze fürs Mitbringen). Sehr weich. Die Eichennoten kommen gut im Antrunk durch. Später ins Wässrige gehend.

Bottle, small creamy bubbly head, clear light brown to dark red color, aroma of dark honey, nuts and minerals, flavor of nuts, vanila, caramel, some light fried fruits and an earthy hintm quite sweet but just a hint of bitterness complementing, carbonation a but too intrusive. Nice and enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Vanilla notes on the nose. A little boozy but the subtle bourbon sweetness comes through and brings a lot more depth of flavour
