As great as the original Unearthly is, this IPA takes it to the next level. It pours a deep amber color and the nose has notes of piny hops and oakiness. Both are reflected in the taste as well, balanced by sweet caramel and a woody bourbon backbone. Oak Aged Unearthly is silky smooth for an beer of its potency, and youíll want to savor it slowly to truly appreciate this ale. http://www.billysbeerblog.com/2010/05/soli

Pours deep orange with small off-white/tan fizz. Smells hoppy as hell, lots of floral, citrus and earthy hops with some vanilla. Taste follows the nose, lots of hop bitterness and a touch of vanilla sweetness followed with some oaky dryness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Southern Tier Oak Aged Un*Earthly finishes dry, making oneís mouth water.

Very smooth smell, doesnít smell or taste as strong as it actually is. Smooth taste, the oak balances the hops well. Finishes crisp with a very gentle aftertaste. Probably the smoothest IPA Iíve ever had.

"Someone spiked my Un*Earthly with Oban." Despite trying, I couldnít pick up the "Oak Aged" flavor at all, until halfway through the bottle (poor me). Aroma: Oak, alcohol, caramel, raisins, apricot. Appearance: A sultry amber orange with very healthy carbonation. Taste: Very similar to Un*Earthly, but improved (possible?) by a balanced ghostly oakiness. Palate: Looong finish typical of Un*Earthly, accented by a building throat-coat of quality bourbon/scotch. Overall: Beware of the ABV, but on my deathbed I want to drink this.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2011 Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Orange/amber colored, off-white head. Fantastic complex aroma of hops, fruit and floral notes, some yeast. Smooth and balanced hoppy flavor, some wood, the floral notes again. Lasting finish. The oak aging makes the fantastic original beer even better. Extremely smooth, balanced and complex. The best Double IPA iíve ever had, hands down.

This is a fantastic beer. No need to write anything about it, itís probably already written here.

Clear, dark amber to copper color with a quickly falling medium head. The aroma is intense, like a tangerine the moment it is cut into. Smells very much like the rind as well. A little caramel sweetness in the background, but lets not kid ourselves; itís all hop. The flavor... oh so good. The tangerine/orange flavor dies back down to íjustí screaming. Rounded out with a big, thick, chewy French oak flavor. Lots of vanilla and woodiness, playing with the caramel and light toasted malt. A more than slight bit of floral hops lingering on the finish. Big mouthfeel. I am a sucker for oak and hops, and together they are grand. Goodness.

unclemattie (4199) - Georgia, USA - FEB 4, 2011
22oz bottle. Thick pour, off-white head, deep copper color. Aroma of sugary malts, caramel and toffee, and vanilla. Then the hops. Loads of grapefruit rind, pine, and resin. Vanilla and resin, the too most craved flavors in big American IPAs. Tastes of sugar. Nice liquid barley tea sweetness. Super sweet sugary malts overpower the beer. Finishes with a mouthful of hop complexity. Wood and pine tips, citrus, and leather, a bit of fresh cut grass. Finishes with a hearty honey bread flavor with plenty of floral hop spiciness. Soft and smooth texture with characteristics of vanilla oak and toffee. Very heavy bodied. It is a big beer that took a lot of malt to create and balanced with just as much hops. Whoo, thatís good!

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Pours a clear dark burnt orange with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and very little oak. Taste starts medium sweet and ends medium bitter. Caramel, citrus and some oak and booze on the end. Full bodied with a thick yet slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, I like this beer. I think it would be interesting to do a side-by-side tasting with the regular UnEarthly.
