Boutip (5856) - 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.

Marheb (4793) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 1, 2015
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.

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 (3125) - 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.

Bottle as southern charred. Pours a murky reddish brown with a small tan head. Big boozy bourbon aroma with caramel, vanilla, and oak. Rich and creamy flavor with oaky bourbon, caramel, vanilla, toffee and pine. Oily texture, medium-full body, soft carbonation.

StefanSD (2356) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
500ml bottle--Purchased as Stone Southern Charred. Pours a murky brown color with a small off-white head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is big and bold with whiskey, caramel and vanilla. The taste, like the aroma, is a big blast of whiskey set in a caramel and toffee malt base that is nicely accentuated by bitter walnuts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Toughest damn cork to extract in a long time, had to use a corkscrew. That aside not fucken bad. .
