Ok, Iíve had this a few times now, reserving a review to try and get the freshest example (being several thousand miles away from where itís brewed) possible. Iíve decided that this is way too crystal malt heavy for me. The aroma is very heavy with caramel, toffee, with some welcome notes of pine and oak. The flavor is again laden with caramel, toffee and hints of oak. Very sweet an alcoholic. It definitely has an interesting twist with the oak, but this really isnít my kind of thing. Just Ok.

callmemickey (2563) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Hazy orange body, large white head, decent lacing. Nose is boozy, resinous, and oaky. Not particularly inviting. Flavor is a bit disjointed as the strong presence of oak, combined with a hop profile that is more bitter than flavorful, undermines this beer. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, a bit astringent. Not my thing.

Quack-Duck (7777) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
bottle from Bierkompass. Hazy/cloudy orangey brownish colour, small, but very persistent and creamy off-white head. Aroma of resiny hops. Full-bodied, solid malty base with a fruity background and lots of resiny and citrusy hops with a shy dusty-woody character.

ellolovey (447) - Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pours a medium amber with a off white head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel malt with hints of resin and citrus hops and a touch of bubblegum. Taste is amazing. Sweet malts surrounded by the oak and fruity hops. Awesome balance between the sweet malts and slightly bitter hops. Tons of both. Sweet, vanilla and alcoholy finish.

Glass pint. Dark/burnt orange, like a light brown leather. Smells sweet and of high alcohol. Is sweet and of high alcohol. Can really taste what Iím assuming are bourbon barrels. Hops too, kinda lingering and morphing, though always hoppy, in the background while the sweet oaky flavor saunters down your palate. I wanna say sticky.

sonnycheeba (3377) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear, deep amber with thin, frothy off-white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is toasted and cookie malts, floral hops, oak, pears, pine, caramel, and light spice. Flavor is sweet malts and floral hops (medium bitterness) with light fruit esters and some oak; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

CampesinoTino (753) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Bomber. Appearance is a dark orange and ruby color with a dense circle of off-white foam and bubbles. The aroma is a blend of hops oil, orange peel, caramel, butterscotch and coconut. The flavor has some bitter resiny hops, tangerine and grapefruit notes at the start that quickly give way to the oak and malt characteristics. Lots of toasted malt, vanilla, caramel, toffee and oaky alcohol flavors the rest of the way. Mouthfeel is a tad sticky and syrupy with low carbonation. The finish delivers a final dose of hops resin, malt sweetness and booze. While closer to a Barley Wine than a DIPA, itís still a worthy companion to Un*Earthly.

oc4111 (119) - USA - AUG 31, 2012
On tap at Stocks & Blondes in Chicago. Deep amber color with all sorts of lacing. Being a double IPA I expected a hop bomb but this was more malt sweetness. Donít know if I would have it again but worth a try.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Dark clear amber with an ample white head and thick lacing. Vanilla nose with some citrus aromatics. Medium to full bodied, the palate is a bit candied from the oak and malts. Layers of vanilla peach and nectarine. A bit creamier than many DIPAís. Long, delicious finish.

Copper pour, white head. Yeast, pine, caramel malt and citrus. Taste is similar with some oak flavor as well. Good stuff!
