Aroma is vanilla, oak, cinnamon, coconut, roasted caramel, molasses, toffee and roasted malt syrup. Appears a deep copper with no foam whatsoever. Taste is big bourbon, oak, coconut, toffee, vanilla, and caramel latte upfront. Some more subtle notes of roasted molasses, roasted amber malts, espresso oils, cough syrup and strong malt syrup. Overall, this is absolutely incredible. I’m really impressed that I can taste the base beer on this one. It literally tastes like Double Bastard with bourbon, vanilla, coconut and oak added. Also, this is smooth as hell. I get no alcohol burn on this whatsoever. Really impressive.

This beer was awesome, one of the best barrel aged beers I have tasted. Follow the link below for the video review. http://youtu.be/_YWEhAFU4_0

Boutip (4920) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle: Poured a murky dirty brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of wood and rye whiskey is pretty dominant with some light hoppy relics notes. Taste is also dominated by rye whiskey notes with quite a bit of woody notes with some residuals sugar notes and light fading hoppy notes. Body is full with good carbonation with some well-balanced warming notes. One of the best nightcap beers I’ve tasted in the recent months.

Sous l’étiquette ’’Southern Charred’’. Après une petite rareté de Crooked Stave, je me disais que cette bouteille fraichement débusquer au coin allait me divertir pleinement pour l’arrivée tranquille de 2015. Je ne m’attendais pas à ça. Je ne m’attendais pas à tant de confort dans le corps, dans le siège du Whiskey. Ça se boit comme un bonbon vanillé brutalement riche avec des piliers houblonnés agonisants mais possédant encore une grande force. Des moments de perfection arrivent par soubresauts. Ce liquide est musclé, puissant et suave.

Out of a bottle, the aroma reminded me of a single barrel bourbon. Sweet malts, with hints of vanilla, toffees and spices. The complex flavors did not stay to the end. The hops that I was expecting to stay, instead tapered off.

BOSSbrewer (2095) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle at a tasting at Butler's place. Pours Amber brown with a very thin off white head. Aroma is dark fruits sweet malt wood. Lots of alcohol. Flavor has some bourbon lots of oak. Finishes surprisingly dry. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big bottle (as Southern Charred 2014) in Seattle, thanks to Matt! Rich hazy heavy malts. Lovely beer, alc bite, smooth and rich. Barrel smooth. Rich. A little cinnamon hot. Cool beer, very tasty.

Thanks to Matt for the taste from the bottle! This has all the right things going for it. Big, big flavor - the classic blend of aggressive hops and sweeter malts, only with some oak, and vastly intensified vanilla/caramel notes from the bourbon. This is delicious stuff!

tectactoe (2521) - Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Tap: Cloudy, swampy burnt amber body with a tan film & collar perched nicely up top. Aroma of scorched oak, light toffee, caramel, hints of licorice, & a strong presence of earthy, borderline piney hops. Lots of booze & wood in the back-end. Taste loaded with sweet brown sugar, caramel, & toffee candy. Hints of maple syrup, spicy oak, & earth. Finish is mostly sweet & syrupy; big, thick body. Nice stuff.
