On tap at the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens on 08/03/2008 on day three of RBSG 2008. 2006 Vintage with French Oak. Clear caramel body with a small tan head. Big vanilla oak aroma with some caramel. Big caramel and light vanilla oak flavor. Medium full body with moderate carbonation.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2008
On tap @ Stone, RBSG. Deep amber color, thin light white head. Heavily tannic aroma over rich malts, peppery hops and alcohol. Slight vanilla also. Taste has a defined alcoholic burn along with a defined spiciness given off by the hops and oak. Very much more oak forward than the brandy barrel version, but I really like the fresh oak characters, so I dug this one.

hopscotch (8544) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Draft... RBSG ‘08... Hazy, brilliant orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Terrific retention. Muted, sweaty, woodsy nose. Full-bodied and very smooth with soft carbonation. Caramelly, malty flavor with sufficient bitterness to keep things in balance. Lengthy, bitter finish.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On-tap at STone the day after the RBSG get together. Menu said "06 Double Bastard w/ French Oak. I assumed that meant it was oaked like AB is oaked thus I am putting my rating here. Pours reddish amber with a whispy, offwhite head. Smells spicy, dark hoppy with a big sweet wood presence as well. Sweet malt flavors hit the tongues first and then a ton of sweetness from the wood. Sweet oak flavors throughout and to the finish with a bit ofspicy hops and some alcohol. Full body, good carbonation.

From tap at Stone Bistro, as Double Bastard French Wine Barrels. Pours hazy brown with a lacing tan head. Dense wineous aroma with a dense caramel presence. Smooth and very grape fruity flavour. Dense caramel presence. Mild spiced too. Warming finish.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Draft at the Bistro. Pours a great looking dark maroon, with a small light tan head. The aroma definitely has some oak in it, with other grapes, and figs, and yeast all being there. The flavor actually is very oaky. Really pounds at you, although it seems to smooth this beer out a great deal. Some vanillafrom that oak was evident in the finish and sweeter aftertaste. Nicely done.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Draft at Stone Bistro at RBSG, aged on French Oak. Pours a deep copper with a dissipating off white head. Cognac like aroma. Nice body and mouthfeel. Initial flavor of caramel, maple, and sweet raisens that moves toward a spicy and subtle pepper bitterness. Wood comes through on the finish. This beer warms the wind pipe. Not quite as bitey as the Brandy Barrel version, and a bit more simple (in a good way).
