48FanInCali (808) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 2013 Southern Charred variant. Maple pour with off white head. Nose is caramel candy, sweet malt, and barrel. Taste has some bitterness left over from the hops. Sweet but no where near as sweet as the nose would lead you to believe. Some vanilla as well. Medium body and finishes a tad sweet. Very solid but a very hefty price tag for a Stone brew.

Hazy brown pour with off white head. Aroma is burnt caramel and raisin. Taste is an exponential version of the aroma.

Bottle from Proof. Labeled as Southern Charred. Deep ruby amber pour with a frothy tan head. Big charred oak barrel aroma, vanilla, molasses, toffee with some very light citrus. Sweet caramel and toffee malt entry fading into smooth vanilla oak, hints of smoke with a hints of citrus hops at the end. Slightly oily body with low carbonation and warming alcohol. Nice winter warmer.

Bottle purchased at Stone Bistro and Gardens... Poured brownish/mohagony with a a moderate light tan head. Aroma of whiskey and wood with charred grains and barrel notes. Strong whiskey and booze and heat. Bitter-sweet molasses with hoppiness and malt sweetness. Toffee and caramel with a nice toasted character. Oak and bourbon continued through to the warming finish.

Southern Charred here, Batch 07, 2013 release (w/2012 Double Bastard being aged). I guess this is the alias. Bottle from the Stone Bistro in San Diego. Pours a murky brownish amber with a ring of yellowish brown head. Aroma is big fruits, vanilla, bourbon, anise, caramel, toffee, maybe even a little chocolate. Smells very nice. Flavor follows with sweet caramel, fig, vanilla, smoke, peat, perhaps some chocolate. Very nice layer of flavors. Sweet but not cloying. Bourbon is there and had a slight burn, but it isn’t overly hot, albeit a strong whiskey presence. Medium carbonation, thick heavy mouthfeel. Overall a very nice barrel aged brew that I would put in the BA Barleywine category.

baraciisch (2290) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Hazy cloudy caramel reddish in color... Aroma of vanilla, cigar tobacco, caramel, oak, bourbon... Hint of alcohol on the nose... Flavor is amazingly complex... Sweet caramel, vanilla initially, gives way to gently bitter hops and tobacco, oak... Delicious, great if you like bourbon aged beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - NOV 30, 2013
2013 series. 500ml corked and caged bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Pours a reddish brown with a finger of light tan head. Big aroma of toffee and vanilla with a bit of hops. Medium bodied. Starts off with some hop bitterness and moves onto more toffee and vanilla. Long finish with some more hops. There’s a lot going on here. Tasty. Expensive.
