RBSG on tap. Has a smooth sweet, aroma. Not much of a head, with a moderate haze. Hints of almost burnt citrus. The oak flaver stood out in a very nice way. I was suprized at how much the flavors were effected by the different woods, or lack of.

A unique and gorgeous dark red, thick and foamy head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and inviting. Bitter and spicy up front, pleasant and malty. A nice beer.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a tall long-lasting beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread, citrus, vanilla, and pine. Flavor of hops (citrus, pine), caramel malt, and vanilla. This beer has heavenly goodness!

ACBF 2008. Wow, this was the first beer that I had at the fest, and I guess in my head I didn’t distinguish between the oaked AB and the oaked double, so didn’t think this was anything too special. It sure was tasty though....

What is there to say about this? It’s a glorious taste that cannot be described in "wine" terms.

Tasted at the 5th Annual (2008) Triple Rock Firkin Fest. This American Strong Ale poured a medium amber color from the firkin. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt, earthy hops and a bunch of oak. A medium to full bodied American Strong Ale. The malts are caramel and fruity. The hops are grapefruity and floral. The oak flavors are mostly in the back end and the finish. Yeah it’s double bastard and all that implies, but the oak aging has mellowed the beer a little, the oak and malts go well together here. Another beer that does very well as a live firkin ale. Very smooth taste. Nice soft carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 From the Firken fest, a sweet taste that hides the booze well. Nice reddish brown color to it. The oak flavor comes through a it strong for me, but its nice and tasty nonetheless. Much better than the oaked arrogant bastard.

Poured at Firken fest, listed as on American oak, a golden brown with medium sized white head. Aroma has a huge oak presence along with a floral hoppiness and some caramel sweetness. The flavor is a well blended compilation of toasted oak, vanilla, floral citrusy hops and a smooth caramel sweetness. The palate is sticky with a slight hop drying and an alcohol warmth. This is a great beer from cask. The low carbonation and higher temp help to bring out and blend the flavors.
