PP SAF ’07. Delicious concoction! Aroma was slightly lacking - but the palate and flavor made up for it. Oak influence added another dimension to an already great beer. Only other knock was it seemed to be a bit too boozy...I put it just above the original.

Tasted at the Strong ale fest in Carlsbad. Listed as 2006 DB Oak Chipped.Beautiful deep reddish brown with a small whitehead. Rich aromas of toffee caramel malt. Silky on the palate. Flavors are deep and complex with sweet malt and hops. Not overpowering bitterness. Excellent longevity in your mouth. The oak is subtle in the background and adds just another complex accent. My favorite beer of the night.Prefered this over the 2000 and 2002 tasted at the Stone DB night last week.Excellent.

On tap at Stone’s 2007 Double Bastard Night. Listed as 2007 Double Bastard with Oak Chips on CASK. Another tap was labeled 2006 French Oak Barrel Aged. I didn’t want to enter too many variations so this category will lump some together. Great fluffy cask head. Great mouthfeel. Small bubbles all over the place. Cloudy dark amber color. Very, very drinkable. Not bitter. Mild aroma. Least bitter of the double bastards, and my favorite of them all (by 0.1-0.2 points). Sweet. Excellent. Double Bastard is one of my favorite beers. I have been collecting and aging these. I now have 04,05,06, and 07. Tasted with kp, eyedrinkale, oodeftone (on BA), and darkelf.
