4.03/5  rDev -1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

22oz bomber. no date. poured into tulip. tasted in mid/late april 2009

clear, deep copper amber. 2-finger light beige head doesn't fade easily, eventually a wispy, foamy thin layer and ring. decent lacing.

aroma: fresh citrus rind, hint of fresh pine, and a nice oaky vanilla sweetness into caramel and subtler apple tones. more hint of citrus, but light.

taste: ever so slightly less hoppy than the regular. not a perfect melding, but the oak and vanilla really are mixing with the fruit and caramel sweetness, and "do battle" with the hops. moderate to bold bitterness, with the oak, vanilla and caramel also revealing a faint diacetyl and phenols in the finish.

medium body, smooth, lightly syrupy upfront, then lots of resins and astringency later. moderate carbonation has moments of tingle, and actually gives structure.

sweetness of malt, citrusy hops and oaky vanilla can become almost cloying and cut down on drinkability. otherwise, an interesting experiment.

This brew pours up a murky copper color with a nice white head. great lacing. the nose is apricots, nectarines, oak, orange extract, floral hops. A beautiful aroma! the taste is super smooth, same as the nose, pretty sweet. full bodied, low carbo. A little too sweet for my preference. If the sweetness could have somehow been cut back significantly, this would have been my ultimate DIPA.

Thanks to corey0212 for the bottle.

Poured into tulip glass yellow-red with a thick white head. Great lacing. There is a interesting nose to this beer. Very complex, lots of wood smell but then there is a smell like brandy on it. Very sweet smelling. The taste is just as unique. The hop bite up front is rather slight for a IIPA, but not in a bad way because it's accompanied by warming of sweet malted grapefruity flavors. The taste mellows out to a rather slight alcohol feel. The mouthfeel is rather warm, the carbonation tickles the inner cheeks of my mouth. This is a very strong IIPA, drinkablilty is great, but it's definatly a sipper.

Pours into an oversized wine glass a golden orange with half finger light cream colored head. Minimal lacing. Sweet caramel malt and citrusy hops on the nose. Taste is big sweet roasted malt by oaky citrus hops. Complex and leaves an oaky, slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, creamy, silk mouthfeel. Good drinkability for a beer with this ABV.

Much like regular unearthly with the addition of some oak. Worth a try, another solid beer from ST.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bomber to my trusty Arrogant Bastard stemmed big boy glass. Nice clarity (second pour from the bomber produced a slight haze) and a perfect copper color with a huge 2 finger eggshell colored head. As I sip the beer there is superb lacing left around the glass. Hops could have faded a bit in this one, as the aroma is nice, but none too strong. I get a decent hop aroma, a mix of both lemon citrus and pine, potentially muted by the oak background, which is there, but faint. An upfront citrus hop taste to begin with, but quickly followed by a sweet malt. The hop to malt balance is superb, it tastes like a sweet citrus candy. There is an oak texture to it all, that somewhat mutes the flavor as you drink it. An alcohol warmth comes along afterwards, as well. The oak aging must make it so muted as it rests dense in your mouth. Also, must be the most deceptive 11% beer I have ever had.
I must admit, I have yet to try the regular Unearthly, I live in GA, so I get what I get. As a huge DIPA fan, I am thinking I would like it just a tad more, since I love an even stronger hop character. Definitely a very well built beer, though.

22 oz bottle, on private order from R+R! Thanks guys.

Pours a clear dark coppery orange, some red highlights, very thick and creamy slightly off white head forms, slowly settles to a very thick ring around the glass, nice big sheets of lace stick everywhere, looks good. Smell is neat, quite a bit of oak in the nose, some vanilla, caramel and biscuit, lots of good Unearthly hoppiness, grapefruit and floral, some pine, but muted somewhat by the wood and the extra age, but still melds together pretty well for me. Taste is similar, very oaky up front, somewhat raw, vanilla and caramel creme, pine and floral, grapefruit, orange peel, alcohol comes through, very big malty base, still the wicked balance of original unearthly but with the pungent aroma/flavour hops replaced by oak. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation, close to syrupy, some warmth going down but still pretty deadly for the ABV. They must use some real raw American oak, but I dig it! Wonder how this one ages!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Copper-bronze, off-white head, very little retention, some lacing.

S: Pine, citrus, rind, toffee, cotton-candy. Awesome aroma, though the hops have faded, so they're a little tame for a DIPA.

T: Pine, citrus rind, toffee, slight fruitiness, good bitterness, warming alcohol.

M: Well-attenuated, moderate body has plenty of hop acidity. Carbonation on the low-side of moderate.

D: Great for its strength.

It's good, but I prefer the usual, fresh, un-aged version.

Thanks to jamie2dope for the trade extra.

A = Pale orange with a slight white head. Little lacing throughout.

S = Earthy hop tones with obvious oak notes as well.

T = Very rich buttery caramel maltiness. A bit overbearing on the malt/sweet end, not quite as much hop balance as I'd expect. Either this is by design due to the oak aging, or my bottle was a bit aged and the hop presence has faded. This one almost tasted like an Arrogant Bastard minus the hop balance. I found this to be very tasty, but slightly deficient on hops.

M = Huge thick oily mouthfeel. I am tasting this beer 30 minutes after finishing it. Just how I like it.

D = Surprisingly drinkable considering the ABV and bold flavors. Easily finished the bomber and could probably handle another.

Overall, I thought a very fine beer and I'd love to try the original.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of oak predominantly as well as sweet citrus and grapefruit. Flavor of sweet fruit and oak. A bit of an odd combination really...I'm not really a fan of it but it wasn't terrible either. I'll stick with the regular IIPAs...

Bomber of 22 oz. Oak Aged Unearthly rescued from the fridge after it was liberated from an unappreciative mass retailer. Split with the wife so I can get up for work tomorrow.

Looks like an IPA, sitting there all innnocent with it's 11% ABV. Little head, golden red. Smells great, hoppy with a wiff of woody.

Taste is Unearthly on 'roids, Bonds-style. The hops hone in on my taste buds & flex their bicepts, shattering them after about six sips with their 99 MPH bitterness. Whooo! Tart, bitter, angry, with strong component of burr oak that takes the edge off, somewhat. Everything is smoothly integrated like a fine piece of engineering. I'm sure the specs for this one are flawless. The 11% should be more apparent. This could kill you after it assassinates your taste buds.

Excellent beer. It's not always the case with strictly oaked brews, but this is an improvement on the very, very good original. Kuds to ST!

22oz bottle. Viggo shared one of these last weekend and we split a case from the local importer. thanks eric!

pours crystal clear orangey amber with a big off-white head. the head drops fairly quick but leaves plenty of lace behind.

aroma is good. light alcohol. orange peel, grapefruit, tangerine. vanilla and raw oak. bit of buttery character too. white bread. biscuit. bit of cracker. touch of toasty character too.

taste is good. just over medium bitterness level. light alcohol. vanilla and buttery oak coming through more here. grapefruit, tangerine, and orange peel - but definitely more tame than in the un-oaked unearthly. just a touch of pine. biscuit. lightly toasted wheat bread.

mouthfeel is good. the body feels bigger than unearthly, fairly full bodied actually. well integrated very fine medium carbonation.

drinkability is great. nicely balanced, leaning a little more toward a barleywine than an imperial ipa. the oak works pretty well here. the only aspect of it i don't really like is the buttery character - but that's likely because i can't stand butterscotch at all. overall, very tasty.

Poured into a Duvel glass this beer is a mahoganey to deep burnished copper in color with soap bubble head that reduces quickly.

The aromas are muted floral hops and massively oaked malt. The citrus in the regular unearthly was much more pronounced and that was one of the best things about that beer. I'm not sure how well I care for oaked IPA's.

The taste is hot hot hot! There is a massive alcohol bite up front that kills the experience for me. I think 11% was a bit agressive for this one. The hops and hidden behind the oak (which doesn't taste bad just differnet). I much prefer oak with a scottish ale or a rich imperial stout.

The mouthfeel is buttery with lots of residual hop oils and plenty of alcohol viscosity.

Drinkability is low for me. I hate to slam a beer in any category especially a southern tier but this one was way to alcoholic and overly oaked. I think this was a mistake - I much prefer the unoaked version.

(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer pours a clear orange body with an antique white head that sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a strong carbonation of big bubbles racing to the surface.

S- The caramel sweet malt that fills the glass has a note of cream and a light oak butterscotch note.

T- The nice full green hop flavor is a bit mild and is followed by a big caramel sweetness. There is a soft green bitter bite in the finish that has a nice pungent hint that becomes more dandelion bitter as the beer warms. As the beer warms there is also more of an oak sweetness and a buttery note to the caramel malt.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with an alcohol heat that bites just a bit at the finish but it softens over time as more finish flavors come through.

D- This beer is big and sweet with a softer wood note but the hops taste a bit like they are gone. The freshness has really left the beer and the oak didn't really make up for the hops that are missing.

Well here's a treat, to review Unearthly and Oak-Aged Unearthly side by side; and all 44 ounces are mine!

Both appear pretty much the same, except that the oak-aged version is clearer, and thus appears to the eye to be just a slight touch darker (there's no yeast in it to reflect light back at you). Other than that, they deliver a deep amber body that has an orange cast to it, and glimmering golden highlights at the base of the glass. The finger-thick, off-white head is creamy and holds pretty well. The original leaves short, creamy mountains of lace rising up above the surface. The oak-aged leaves sheets of thinner, craggy lace that sticks to the glass and stays, where as the original version tends to slide down to near to the level of the head as it goes. Overall I'd guess I'd have to say that the original version has a bit of a better head, but that the clarity of the oak-aged version is generally more enticing.

In the nose, the original Unearthly is decidedly caramelish and malty with notes of pine/spruce and citrusy, and a bit of grassiness and leafiness as well. It's bold and bright, and somewhat sweetish.

The oak-aged version displays some subtle oak (which I kind of didn't expect), along with fruity and citrusy notes; and it's dryer with much less maltiness. I also get a little more grapefruit out of the oak-aged, and some lemon and what I think of as something like a tomato plant - it's vegetal, but in a good way... grassy I guess. And I get more spruce than pine.

As expected, in the flavor the standard version wraps piney, grassy, floral and citrusy hops in a rich blanket of bready and gently caramelish and honey-like malt. The oak-aged version also follows what its aroma suggests, and it's dryer and more fruity, although some raspy pine does appear in the finish. The woody touch is nice. I should also note, however, that even though the original is a bit sweetish, it still finishes fairly dry, with just a hint of doughy malt lingering, and it doesn't build on the palate.

Interesting! They're really like two different beers. The original version is very wide in its flavor profile, whereas the oak-aged is more focused, but with perhaps a touch more depth. Hmmmm....

The mouthfeel for each beer is a little bit different as well, with the original Unearthly displaying a more dextrinous body.

Oddly, both beers display the same bitterness to me, despite the fact that I find the fuller maltiness of the original to be sweeter, and the oak-aged to be drier. The bitterness somehow remains the same.

Both beers have their own charms in the end, and I again have to reiterate how different they really are. I like the fuller mouthfeel of the original, and its bready malt and bolder hop flavors. But I also like the fruitiness and dryness of the oak-aged version, and because of that I think I'd find it a little more drinkable in the long-run (although it seems to have just a little bit more alcohol to it as well). And on that note, perhaps the extra aging time, and surface contact with the oak allowed it to ferment out a bit more. Just a theory.

Conclusion: both versions are really good beers that don't overstep their bounds with too much maltiness, too much bitterness, or too much hop flavor - and yet all of those are present in abundance. Nicely balanced. Nicely rounded. Nicely drinkable. Certainly worth trying!

Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy orangey color ale with a small foamy head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with some floral and citrus hops also thrown in the mix. Taste is much similar to a barleywine then an imperial IPA with dominating sweet malt with a very light oak and a floral bitter finish. Body is quite full with limited filtration and no much carbonation. I honestly think the regular version is better.

Enjoyed on tap at Ron's Schoolhouse Grill, served in a tulip glass.

Poured a hazy amber with thin off-white head. OK retention left some good spotty lacing. Smells of vanilla, floral hops, honey, biscuits, and alcohol. Tastes of pine, vanilla, honey, toasted malts, oak, pineapple, oranges, apricot, and tangerine. Medium-full in body with moderate but nice carbonation. Syrupy, sweet, and slick with a warm finish. Definitely a sipper, but you should know what you're getting yourself into with anything Oak Aged. May not be something I want to drink too often, but a nice treat.

$8.99 for the bomber from Deciccio's Ardsley, NY. No freshness info to be had. Pours pretty clear, medium apricot infused amber, slight and off white head and not leaving fine, splattered lacing upon a medium swirl. I get some wood and citrussy hops in the nose. Love the style, typically love the ST offering, so this one was a cinch to please my palate. Big, hoppy and bold. Hops, oak and a malty underblanket to smooth things out. Simply lovely stuff and well worth seeking out and enjoying.

Thanks JCB!

Pours a bright orange. Big white foam head. The smell assaults you with oak. There's some citrus in the aroma, but mostly, oak.

Taste is abundantly strong and explosive. Kind of a souped up Oak Aged Arrogant Bastard, actually. Big time oak and vanilla, and some of the grapefruit citrus, and a hint of tropical fruits, along with it. The DIPA-ness of it is really subsumed by the barely aging. Resiny, syrupy, and with a nice sticky mouthfeel.

Would buy all the time if available. Very drinkable, quite delicious.

22 oz bottle I received from westvirginastyle. Been looking forward to this and pretty much any OA IPA/DIPA lately. Served up in my shaped Dogfish Head glass.

A: Pours a somewhat dark orange, coppery color. Held to the light you get some more a dark golden yellow with some light coppery hues. Had about two fingers of nice and foamy white head. That head has some pretty good retention other than the fact that the foam is so sticky and all over this glass in all this sticky foam on the glass. The body is pretty damn clear and shows a pretty slow and sporadic carbonation movement. Not bad at all.

S: This is absolutely where the IPA qualities are in this brew. As soon as I popped the cap, I got some hoppy goodness. There is a serious pine hops presence coming out. Has a really nice pine resin qualiy coming across with a touch of harsh hops presence. Behind that is the oak aged goodness. You get the woodiness along with a nice creamy, vanilla aroma. Maybe a touch of caramel malt coming across, but it comes back to the pine hops and maybe some floral hops as well. Very nice and very appetizing.

T: Not as big on the hoppy craziness as most people would probably want from a DIPA, but I like it. This thing starts off with a lot of nice oak and that sweet vanilla flavor that comes out. Pretty nice and lightly sweet caramel malt pushing forth as well. There is a bit of a butteriness here but it helps, does not hinder. Then come the hops, but they are more of a supporting attribute rather than the star of the show. Once again, it is absolutely pine hops in here that has a touch of bite. That bite that is produced is easily neutralized by all that oak and malty goodness though. I like it, but then again I really like oak aged IPAs/DIPAs.

M: I would weigh this one in at a nice and solid medium bodied brew. Has a very nice and pleasant creaminess in here. Oh so creamy and delightful. Carbonation is a bit lighter than I would expect and I can't really decide if this is a good thing or bad thing. Slight alcohol heat coming across in the throat, but I don't get a big and boozy beer at all. I think its pretty light in the alcohol realm considering the 11% that is here. Aftertaste is oak, carmel and that butteriness.

D: I am having absolutely no problem with this whatsoever. The oak really tames the hops and keeps this brew slightly sweet and very creamy. It doesn't kill you like some DIPAs can. It really gives both worlds that this beer is trying to showcase. I feel that maybe instead of just oak, maybe a little whiskey or bourbon aging would have been a better match and brought forth more flavors a bit more bite. I dig it for sure and will enjoy it to the last drop. Another fine beer by Southern Tier and its not a crazy dessert beer!!!

This beer pours a light, clear copper with a two finger white head that had good retention and sticky thick lacing. Nose was a mit muted for what I expected on a DIPA. Citrusy hops are the most prevelent with a touch of vanilla. Some sweetness caramel malts in the nose. Taste is of creamy vanilla at first and then of piney hops - a nice quick bite on it. It then lends itself to sweet caramel malts, and a citrusy bite to the finish. This beer is medium to full bodied, decent carbonation, creamy mouthfeel that gets a bit chewy as the beer warms. This was a decent beer that I would pick up again.

Thanks a lot bobsy for sending this bottle my way.
Pours clear orange/copper color with one finger foamy off-white head. Lots of lace. Smell - hoppy, slightly bitter with some citrusy notes. Oak is definitely there, it adds some kind of sweetness and plays very well with hops. Very nice and promising aroma. Taste - whiskey-like notes noticeable at first, then hoppiness comes into play. Some fruity sweetness is there, something mango-like, as well as some grapefruity bitterness. Somewhat bitter finish. Very interesting taste. Well balanced, rich, alcohol is hidden very well. Drinkable for ABV. Very nice example of DIPA, I'd definitely recommend this one.

Poured from 22oz brown bomber into a clear 12oz tulip glass. No freshness date. Purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA) for $7.99.

A: Luminescent ruby-orange with thick, meringue, 2-3 finger head with thick cap of lace with more lace formations down the glass.

S: Delicious caramel malts meet their match with bursting earthy and floral hops aromas. Grapefruit and pine are in there too. Oak edges in but is not dominant by any means.

T: Lush and complex flavors of earthy, spicy, and floral hops all horn in on a rock-solid malt backing which stands no chance but tries to all the same. Oak adds some depth to the earhty hops flavor, but only makes a minor difference in this outstanding DIPA.

M: Easily one of the best mouthfeels around, just like its big brother Unearthly. Silky smooth with low carbonation and a spicy, earthy hops aftertaste. Alcohol spiciness is all that is detectable.

D: An incredibly drinkable DIPA that rivals Great Divide Hercules in this category. Hoppy but not contortional with hops punch but excellent crafting that makes this a worthy excursion for any beer lover.

Pours a basic gold with a thin, well retained head. Decent lacing. Thin carbonation. Standard looking ipa.

The nose is nothing about standard - and very earthy. Hops leave a nice piney citrus smell. The oak is there, too, providing the earth tones. The beer smells like it will be thick.

The mouthfeel does not disappoint, coming across nice and chewy. The beer hits the mouth suprisingly calm, but explodes with a sweet, dry, bitter finish. Excellent! Notes of pineapple, tart esters, alcohol assuaged by the oak. All very, very good.

The beer hides its 11% well and is very drinkable.

Seek this one out.

Poured into a glass. Yep, just a simple Ikea 8 oz juice glass...with a funky Ikea design of course.

Big fan of Southern Tier's imperial series, especially the IPA's, so big hopes going into this. Not entirely disappointed either, barrel ages IPA's really are a tough cookie to crack.

The coloration of this is nothing stand out, no problems there, just a medium golden amber hue and pretty clear. The nose is 90% citrus/grapefruit hoppy and 10% some mix I can not put my finger on (besides the small oaky odors). I am reminded of a specific smell but can not put my finger on it (I will probably remember 4 hours from now and freak out).

My first impression is a mild dill flavor mixed with a spicy hop accent. The citrus yummy hops do come through, but are quickly pushed away by the alcohol presence and oak aging. My tongue still has a slight alcohol burn going on right now and I, silly me, have not had a sip in almost 2 whole minutes.

For the price, I will probably stick to the regular Unearthly....or just Gemini which still blows my mind. This bomber is tasty and worth a shot, but seriously overall drinkability is on the "share me please" level.

Appearance: Poured with a smooth creamy off white head that dissipated to a thin layer leaving some lacing on the top of my glass. The beer is clear and has an orangeish gold color.

Smell: Piney hops, oak, toasted malt.

Taste: Piney hops, smooth oak, slight nuttiness, toasted malt, subtle spiciness like in iced tea, some alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, silky smooth, some carbonation tingle, nice dry feel afterward.

Overall: Good drinkability, the alcohol makes it slightly harder to drink much of this, but the flavors are so interesting and very nicely meld together. Really good oak flavor and some nice piney hops.
