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.""""

Simply divine. No other beer even comes close to the flavour of Innis & Gunn. The flavour starts off bitter with a slight oakiness, which gives way to subtle caramel and vanilla after-notes. A MUST TRY Scotish beer.

Pint on draught in Edinburgh. A stunning pint with hints of vanilla, toffee and and whisky. One of my all time favourite made even better by being on tap on not just out of the bottle

Absolutely the best beer I’ve ever tasted. It’s like a slice of heaven poured into a bottle.

Foam subsides nice and close to the glass and smell of vanilla is not to be mistaken. The smell also though of fresh oak, some caramel and slightly smoky. The taste is very special. I have never tasted anything like this amazing brew before. It tastes wonderful of vanilla, slightly citrus and fresh newly carved oak. During the fermentation is added a little honey, which gives it a good sweet balance. The finish is long and pleasantly bitter.

Pours with an okay foam. Color is whisky. Aroma is whiskey like having strong "barrel-matured aroma", highlands whisky and some fermented dark fruits (plums, dates and such). Taste is sweet and has cooked mushrooms, caramel ice cream, some sweet citrus notes and a plethora of other tastes. The taste of this is very complex and thus interesting. It’s a good beer, with a very unique and luxurious aroma and taste. I like it and will want to try more beer from this brewery.
