bomber into my hardywood park chalice. bottled on date: 03/01/2012.
A: crystal clear dark amber colored brew. head is a dark off-white color and foamy. retention is more of a rim and the lacing isnt much more impressive.
S: initial notes of oak, vanilla, and alcohol. a quick sniff after the pour showcases some tropical fruit hop aromas as well. just as detectable is the malt sweetness as it combines with the oak to provide a very inviting nose.
T: wow, right off the bat you can really taste the oaky flavors. vanilla is definitely in there from the wood. the bitterness from the Unearthly is on the palate throughout w/ the maltiness/body giving enough backbone to stand up to the powerful oak flavors.
M: mouth is mild to average carbonation on a full bodied beer.
D: interesting take on their double ipa that is oh-so-good. it certainly works fine, but i must say that i am more of a fan of the un-oak aged unearthly. or even more of a fan of their blended gemini. both worth seeking over this example in my opinion.

Holy oak taste, Batman!
Forget aged in oak. This tastes like I'm just drinking right out of the barrel. Oak, brown, tannins. That's what this beer tastes like. Also some hops and malt... but mostly just oak.
No real good aromas to speak of.
What am I drinking? Sigh. Drinkable and unique, but wouldn't have it again
Serving type: on-tap
