Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a cloudy thick caramel colour, with a small fizzy tan head. Nose of oak, chocolate and citrusy hops. My mouth is lit up with bitter hops and sweet malts. Finishing dry with bitter hops leaving a tartness on your lips.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Oak and floral aroma. Initial sweet caramel malty taste followed quickly by the taste of oak and bitter hops, some alcohol taste shows through. Dry, bitter, some what fruity finish with a very pleasant lingering hoppy perfume taste.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2007
Very cloudy amber with moderate head formation. Aroma is strong yet nondeScript citrus, caramel and moderate simplistic oakiness. A weird combination. A somewhat unctuous oakiness dominates on the sweetish beginning of the sip, followed by some perfumey hops and the expected strong bitterness. I like bits and pieces here, but itís an odd combination. Iím a bastard fan as well, but I donít see the point of this beer. It doesnít work. At all. Hops in large quantity and oak simply do not mix.

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Murky amber in colour with strong aromas of dark caramel, pine, white grapefruit, vanilla, almond, and a hint of raisin. Very woody in the mouth (both fresh cut wood and bark), red grape skins, a bit of port (probably the combination of the caramel and grape elements), with a cookie like malt character coming through near the finish. Thereís a citrus fruit + woody astringency that balances out the malt in a very interesting way.

Beerdedone (3008) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2007
Pours a reddish amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of fruit, citrusy hops, oak and some mild spices. Flavor of rich malts, bitter hops and sweet caramel malts. Very well balanced. Finishes crisp and dry. excellent american strong.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2007
There is a nice, dark malty aroma with significant grapefruit notes. The taste is of AB with a slightly harsh oak taste. I think that aged in a barrel without chips it would be a little more subdued and better.

smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - APR 16, 2007
pours like the typical ab. aroma is mostly grapefruit with hints of raisin and oak. taste is grapefruit and sweet raisiny malt with lots of toasty oak throughout. finish is a little tanniny with typical grapefruit bitterness. pretty tasty treat but i enjoy regular bastard more.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a tarnished copper color with an off-white head. Nose is hoppy with dried apricots. Flavors are initially wonderful, full bodied and nicely balanced between the hops and malt. The fruit remains in the background but I could not discern any wood. As the beer warmed, the hop profile intensified becoming more bitter and overall more prominent. The oak never surfaced and this was a boldly flavored brew. Thanks to ogglethorp for the bottle.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 On draft - remember thinking, "i probably wonít order this again" - . Def not my favorite offering from Stone.
