Beerdedone (2785) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle as southern charred. Pours a murky reddish brown with a small tan head. Big boozy bourbon aroma with caramel, vanilla, and oak. Rich and creamy flavor with oaky bourbon, caramel, vanilla, toffee and pine. Oily texture, medium-full body, soft carbonation.

StefanSD (2217) - Lakeside, California, USA - NOV 16, 2014
500ml bottle--Purchased as Stone Southern Charred. Pours a murky brown color with a small off-white head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is big and bold with whiskey, caramel and vanilla. The taste, like the aroma, is a big blast of whiskey set in a caramel and toffee malt base that is nicely accentuated by bitter walnuts. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Toughest damn cork to extract in a long time, had to use a corkscrew. That aside not fucken bad. .

rxeight (1573) - Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Fobab 2014. Red and black southern charred bottles. Had this next to the bastard in the rye. Both were similar, too much booze and stale hops. This one however was slightly smoother but still barely drinkable. In the company of everything else at fobab, this was garbage.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - OCT 15, 2014
DB with a softer though still aggressive hop bite and a big, whiskey barrel front and rear. Really fully on. One to groove on and savour.

Deep hazy Amber, massive bourbon caramel and American hops nose. Full on hops, malt, bourbon, super full body. Sweet, boozy, bourobon. Over the top in every way. Love this stuff so much.

SOUTHERN CHARRDED
Appearance: Pours a hazy bright amber. Active creamy tan top.

Aroma: Maple syrup, caramel, soft bourbon.

Taste: Toffee, bourbon, piney hops, oak.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy with easy carbonation.

Overall: I’ve tried many iterations of Double Bastard over the years. Fresh, cellared, aged on oak chips, aged on hot peppers, but this is by far, the best treated version of Double Bastard I’ve ever had. After re-reading Stone’s marketing materials, I found out this beer rested in bourbon barrels that once held Stone Suitable for Cave Aging – An Imperial Smoked Porter Tribute to Danny Williams. Smooth edges, decadent flavor profile, damn near perfect.

dalekliz (885) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Sampled at Hop Con 2.0. Pours a murky reddish-brown with an off-white ring. Aroma of tons of bourbon, oak, sweeter malt and caramel. Huge taste, bourbon, oak, brown sugar, caramel, and malts. Lingering bourbon notes. Excellent.

Wombata (468) - Kobe, JAPAN - JUL 25, 2014
Aroma: Well-balanced bourbon, wood, vanilla and raisin. Flavor: Roasty, wood, bourbon, bready malt, vanilla. Very long finish with caramel and vanilla. Comment: The flavors seem to have meshed together well.
