Innis And Gunn Original Oak Aged BeerInnis And Gunn Original Oak Aged Beer

Brewed by:
Innis & Gunn
Scotland, United Kingdom

Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is our firstborn brew, whose accidental discovery started our story in 2003. Its originality also lies in its singular taste – notes of biscuity malt and vanilla swirling within a creamy, mellow character.

A pioneering beer, its flavour finds favour with brewing juries, blind tasting panels and barflies alike.

Had on tap for the purpose of this review but have tried this from the bottle on many prior occasions ... This was one of the brews that first introduced me to a life beyond Molson Pilsener and other industrial lagers. It is widely available and the description on the bottle sparks considerable interest. Whiskey and vanilla eh? Alright. A reddish bronze beer with unassuming white foam, smells like mellow brown sugar or butterscotch, what I would describe as a corn sugar sort of sweetness, hints of floral vanilla and green grass, and a dry oakiness that evokes whiskey. Tastes much like it smells, with the same basic elements just listed except that the taste is much more woody, dry, and somewhat earthy. Less sweet than the aroma would suggest and feels somewhat like a lager: Thinnish body and rather assertive carbonation. Hints of bread crust, tobacco, and some other floral note flit in and out of the whisky-like, woody, semi-sweet murk. Its just OK in my view. I prefer a few other Innis & Gunn offerings. The vanilla is great but I'd tone down the barrel flavor and amp up the caramel, thicken up the body and add a few extra layers of flavor.

330 ml. bottle. Amber to red colour, with a minimal head that vanishes too soon. Smell like a damp cellar with spider webs, oak, whisky, Maybe some vanilla or something, but it's buried under the whisky. Light palate, taste of whisky, oak and spices.
