COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unobtanium is a barrel-aged English-style Old Ale that ages for six months in a bourbon barrel, soaking up all sorts of amazing whiskey character as well as hints of oak and vanilla. The name was taken from an old aerospace/engineering term for a specific material or object (often imaginary, impossible or highly improbable to obtain) needed to complete any given project. And, before you ask, we did not take the name from the elusive metal in Avatar. James Cameron reportedly named the substance as an inside joke to his fellow techie/gear-heads. Our version is much tastier, though.

This beer is a great season with a great bourbon kick to too off the maltiness. A fine beer

This Old Ale is "alive" with witch’s brew bubbles percolating in the glass to the very last drop. I have no problem with any aspect of this recipe, finished product or even the chemistry professor doing lab work label pic. I can’t fault it’s uniqueness like too many picky [thy ass] people out there. Maybe it matches my character: Strong, Rich, Bold, Radioactive.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 Damn fine brew. Hint of bourbon and oak. Slight vanilla. Love bourbon barrel strong ales so this is right up my alley. Very impressed with the Straight to Ale brews.
