wxman (1341) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a ruby/amber with a thin light tan head with plenty of lace. Has a wet rag aroma that is not bad. Taste is sweet maple syrup malt and a smokiness. There’s also a whiskey character along with molasses and a bit of hop bitterness. Nice.

Not crazy about this one. Too viscous, unbalanced; malts are cloying, bittering hops are totally forward, but taste is rather simple, despite the aggressiveness. Just a big, big american ale, which i think could have been tipped over into a decent barleywine with some work.

gripweed57 (518) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2013
22 ounce bottle. 2013 vintage. 11.25 % ABV. Pours dark amber color with a creamy beige head. Rich toasted malt aroma with notes of vanilla, slight oak, burnt caramel and dark fruit. Intense bittersweet toasted malt flavor has hints of burnt sugar, currants, roasted beets and vanilla. Big cloying, chewy mid taste. Finish is bitter and dry, long and spicy.

On tap at brewery. Hazy dark golden brown with a thin creamy off white head. Big oak, caramel, molasses, cereal grain, vanilla and citrus aroma and taste with a bitter oaky tannic finish and a bright full bodied palate. Nice.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Reddish caramel, thin frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   Huge graham cracker and caramel nose.   Has a slight burnt or spicy vanilla like quality.   Sweet toasted malts on the tongue.   Some oak and vanilla as well.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Spicy finish, oak, vanilla, some marshmallow.   A weird beer overall.   Very unique at least.   Lingering toasted oak.   Very simple overall, toasted oak.   Fun, but the underlying beer is not at hand.   Simply toasted oak is how I would describe this one.   Oh, and sweet.   Tasty, interesting, if a little simple.

mcberko (5378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a hazy dark amber with medium off-white head. Aroma brings out toasted caramel, woody oak, and still loads of hops detectable. Flavour is quite complex, full of toasted caramel, quite a bit of the oak, and lots of hops. Loads of depth in here, with the toasted oak adding a wonderful element on this. Excellent stuff - even better than the base beer.

On tap at PIB, pours a hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma of wood chips, caramel, and still quite a big punch. Flavour brings out loads of wood chips, caramel, and piney hops. A nice mix of wood and hops, with a solid caramel malt backbone. Very solid stuff.

freeofthoughts (635) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap pours dark amber (like the regular double bastard) with a tall frothy khaki head. The aroma is smooth barley grains toasted oak with some sweetness. The flavor is modest on the oak, just a little hearty earthy element and a light vanilla and softness. There is also a spice, a tang that I don’t recall in the base double bastard. Nice big barley wine like beer with a lingering spice and sweetness. Listed at 11.2% Drinks easy, very easy even as it warms. Soft carbonation and lingering drying palate make it interesting and adds some roundness. Very nice.

Nice amber color, good foam. Piney hop aroma with a piney & slightly citrus flavor. Somewhat acidic with a strong warming feeling. Solid.
