Draft at Stone Bistro. This was the dark toasted oak variety. Clear reddish copper pour, with a small caramel colored head. Sweet malt, caramel, toffee, mild fruit, nice oak flavor, a bit of vanilla, and some bittering hops. Enjoyable.

2006 french oak barrel aged at the 08 double bastard release (on tap). Pours like the standard double bastard. The barrel aging really did good on this. The hops and malts are really working well together. Sweet caramel, bread, vanilla, oak, bitter hops, and something that reminds me of honey. mmmmm good.

NeuroPliny (242) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
Poured from a growler filled at Stone brewery in Escondido. Pours clear reddish-brown. Large off-white head that lingers. Aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, ripe fruit, heavy malt, and hops. And yes, I do think there is toasted oak there! Flavour is a wonderful balance between IPA-like hops and "toasted oak" sweetness with hints of burnt sugar and butter. The finish is long with nice hops rising out of the sweetness. Overall a fascinating beer that is gold for beer nerds.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2013
Growler from the brewery in Escondido, served in a snifter. Pours clear copper with a large beige head that remains and laces well. The nose has a huge kick of toasted oak, along with caramel, dark fruit, resin and pine. The flavour is balanced between resinous hops and a moderate sweetness with brown sugar, toasted oak, popcorn and earth. The finish is long and toasty with resinous hops. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a great American strong with the intense hopping of the original paired with elegant toasted oak notes. A definite improvement on an already great brew! 2013-03-22

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Served as 2006 Double Bastard on French Oak. Mahogany pour with a soapy off-white head. Huge oak aroma, caramel sweetness, mild vanilla, and a fair amount of alcohol. A definite apple note, too. The flavor has some spiciness to it, presumably from the oak. Mild charred oak notes, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. A bit of alcohol and some green apple.

ADfan (852) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a dark amber color in the glass. There is toasty malts on the nose with with a touch of sweetness maybe prunes or raisins. Taste has some caramel malts with the oak coming through. I notice a touch of licorice and dark fruits. Good beer.

troopie (2295) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2012
From Hennie’s cellar. The malt is strong with this one. Not a barrel monster, the aroma has caramel. Full Bodied, Malty flavour with what I can only call oakey stripes. Long lasting finish some citrus
