Alpha10 (616) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
2016/05/01 - Southern Charred 2015. Pours a ruby brown with a thick, frothy, khaki head that slowly reduces. Aroma is toffee, oak, roasted malt, vanilla, brown sugar, light molasses and a hint of bourbon. Taste is sweet toffee, molasses and vanilla, with a roasted malt base and an oaky/bourbon, lightly herbal hop finish. Super smooth. Mouthfeel is full and oily, with creamy carbonation and a bittersweet, warming finish. The bourbon barrel aging really mellows the aggressiveness of the regular Double Bastard. Awesome stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JMerritt (1941) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2016
Bottled, labeled as Southern Charred (2015 version). Dark maroon with a thin, medium tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, molasses, moderately charred oak - very rich! Heavy malts dominate the flavor, though subtle leathers and pine sap trickle through. Finish is where all the whiskey ended up - mildly hot at first but rapidly mellowing. A fantastic sipper.

kbudd19 (984) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Bottle. Southern charred 15. Dark muddy brown with dense white head. Wonderful aroma, oak, vanilla, sweet malts, and spirits. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, mixed in with bitter hops, followed by vanilla and sprit character. Sticky , bitter sweet finish. The barrel treatment has smoothed out the base beer quite a bit, very good.

From a 500ml bottle - as "Southern Charred". Poured a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet malts, smokey, boozy notes are strong in this one. Lots to take in with this one.

ICEatALAMO (1301) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2016
í15 bottle. The pour is a murky orange/amber, with a thick head at first. The aroma is mostly that of a strong ale with a hint of booze. The taste has a ton of flavor. Not as harsh as I would have thought from the aroma or just from regular DB. The bourbon is light, but compliments it very well.
