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.""""

A copper-coloured beer with a distinct smokey flavour, almost like a cheap whisky. Despite the cheap whisky aftertaste, this is an enjoyable beer, but one or two will do it for me, before I need a real beer.

MAGICuenca91 (29) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - JAN 10, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2017 No esperaba mucho de esta cerveza y sin embargo me ha impresionado favorablemente. A pesar de no tener un aroma intenso, tiene un sabor y sobre todo un gusto en el paladar muy bueno. Combina muy bien lo amargo con lo dulce. Sabor a caramelo.

From bottle. Clear copper with small white head. Strong vanilla, possibly from the oak chips. Sweet with oat, vanilla and dark, spicy notes.

seymour (1929) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Shared from a fresh 12oz brown bottle into nonic pub glasses. Crystal-clear reddish amber colour with moderate beige foam, lasting with a little lace. A true-to-style Scottish ale, though less sticky-sweet than some, with a drier finish like Odell 90 Shilling, perhaps to appeal more to a modern craft beer/American palate? Subtle grainbill complexity, hint of caramel malt, toasty, nuts, well-balanced with faint earthy/herbal hops, then pleasantly enhanced with definite oak barrel traits: vanillin, black pepper, black tea. Soft, creamy, bready mouthfeel. None of the excessive, astringent tannins so many other barrel-aged beers have. Light-medium body, Well-crafted, easy-drinking, and very tasty.

CurlyJoe (108) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2016 A different beer this one. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Taste starts quite bitter and moves to vanilla. Ending quite sweet. Light on the palate and smooth. Not sure I?d get it regularly, but interesting nonetheless.
