3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served as 2006 Double Bastard on French Oak. Mahogany pour with a soapy off-white head. Huge oak aroma, caramel sweetness, mild vanilla, and a fair amount of alcohol. A definite apple note, too. The flavor has some spiciness to it, presumably from the oak. Mild charred oak notes, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. A bit of alcohol and some green apple.

Pours a dark amber color in the glass. There is toasty malts on the nose with with a touch of sweetness maybe prunes or raisins. Taste has some caramel malts with the oak coming through. I notice a touch of licorice and dark fruits. Good beer.

From Hennie’s cellar. The malt is strong with this one. Not a barrel monster, the aroma has caramel. Full Bodied, Malty flavour with what I can only call oakey stripes. Long lasting finish some citrus

The beer is a dark burnt amber with creamy white head lacing the glass. It tastes sweet smokey and oakey with nice heat on the backend of the palate. Very good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Beer Revolution. They said that this is last years version, so the hoppiness had faded. They were right. It pours a rather clear orangy brown color with a disappearing off white head. The aroma is sweet with fruit, caramel and light oak. The flavor is sweet and bitter with big notes of caramel, toffee and big earthy bitterness in the finish. Notes of dry oakiness prevail throughout. Pretty nice if a bit brutal in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Beer Revolution - minimal head. Slightly reddish body. Flavors of caramel and malts as compared to lots of hops. Fruits if plums and apricots. Like this because it ’s not too hoppy despite the IBUs.

This Double Bastard is smoothed out with a little oak. It makes for a great beer. Very enjoyable sipper. The Oak adds just a little more reason to enjoy this beer.
