hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2009
french oaked cask at papago 11/8/2009. dark woody brown colored pour with the traditional soft cask head which is shade of beige. the nose is extremely floral. it’s jam packed with vanilla and wood notes while the db sits somewhat quietly in the background... dust, spicy hops, grass, brown sugar and some faint citrus. normally, db is far too sweet and syrupy for me to enjoy. but this, this is incredible! tons of hoppy dryness balances out the massive caramel malt. vanilla richness and depth complements notes of spice, brown sugar, soft wood, grass, flowers and a dry finish. pine shows up as it warms and lingers in the aftertaste. the mellow cask texture really suits this... otherwise it might come off too brash or alcoholic. 8/4/8/4/17/4.1

On tap, listed as 2006 French Oaked Double Bastard. Pours with a huge, fluffy, off-white head and a hazed amber body. Amazing lace. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, toffee, vanilla and oak. Taste is cotton candy, fruit, oak, toffee and light flan. Nicely aged. Syrupy mouthfeel, delicious!

2006 French Oak Aged version on tap at Stone Bistro. Hazy amber in color with a medium cream-colored head and good lacing aroma. Aroma is oak, citrus hops, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is oaky with loads of caramel malt, toffee, and brown sugar, along with some dark fruits and vanilla. Very tasty. Palate is medium-full with lively carbonation. Not boozy in the least. An incredible beer overall.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2009
06 vintage at blind lady during sd beer week: pours beautiful...dark cream/tan head...lacey as fuck atop a opaque orange tinted body..orgasmic nose of wood, vanilla, aged malt and booze. Creamy flavors bursting with vanilla and oak, whipped cream, slight anise, pinch of cocoa powder, and candy...sweet, creamy, delightful beer candy. Seriously, stone should discontinue every one of their beers and just sell this, in great quantities.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2009
Red colour, little bit of wood on the nose. Lots of malt, oak, quick finish, little bit of lingering oak, dry. Pretty good overall, compliments the double bastard pretty well.

1st rating I guess! On tap at Hamilton’s 2nd Saturday. Pours a rich amber. Hop bitterness hits first and then fades to a sweet caramel. The French Oak really builds up as your drink this one and almost gets to the point where it last like you liked the inside of the barrel. Mouth is really smooth, a little hop. The Oak adds a nice layer to the already good DB.

Entered to celebrate my rating number 13,300. Draft at Stone Bistro as Double Bastard French Oak. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt, caramel, and oak. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, oak, and over ripe fruits. Thick body.

Aroma of sugars, caramel, honey, oak smoke. Flavor very similar, but a bit of a stale taste, tap dirty? Nice brew though, would have again.
