Very murky toffee colored pour. Thick creamy khaki head. Plenty of lacing. Nice peppery vanilla aroma reminiscent of bourbon. Taste is a malt up front, followed up by some bourbon heat, pepper and thinned out vanilla. Very good.

Enjoyed with other Stone Brewing Co regulars on tap as Southern Charred. If you like strong ales this is your Messiah. Pours a cloudy reddish color with a beige head. Taste is where this one prevails. It?s double bastard with extra vanilla notes, butterscotch, and bourbon. And the mouth feel is very smooth. Finishes very well for how strong this brew is at 12.6%. Just came out again a couple months ago but was told by my Stone insiders that this beer.does not age well. That buttery flavor gets way stronger and will overpower. If you find it drink it immediately. Just insiders information for you all.

Delicious; the best barrel aged experiment Stone has put forth. Huge bourbon in the nose, vanilla, butterscotch. Pours a hazy full body. Itís sweeter than DB, and a lot better too, I think. Killer stuff; I just wish they it was a proper 750ml bottle for the price tag, considering how generous Stone is usually. :)

Bottle at Blippsmas!. Pours a hazed amber ruby with a thin white head. Big malty with a lot of malt. Long malt and oxidized malt and old bitterness. Boozy and warm.

í500 ml c&c bottle (as Southern Charred at 12.6%) from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark amber/brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma is primarily bourbon. Med + body. Flavor is bourbon, oak, vanilla - lots of those - and some nice roasty malt. This stuff is not bitter, but itís not excessively sweet. Finishes mainline bourbon, and trying to be dry. The alcohol is not a problem. Merely detectable.

Bottle "Southern Charred." Pours deep amber with a beige head. Big whiskey sweetness, light oak, vanilla, sweet malts, and hints of fruit. Good, not great.

Stone Southern Charred bottle pours with a murky amber like body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up big spicy oak mixed with some pine hops and a mild degree of bourbon booze notes. Hmm. The taste delivers sweet malts and then it quickly heads into a firm level of pine hop resin. To midway it gets into big spicy oak notes. Nice big oaky brew.

Bottle at Blippsmas as Southern Charred. Pours muddy brown with white head. Nose and taste of charred oak, cherry, whiskey and toffee. Medium body.

16.9 oz bottle, really?! This is for the recent Southern Charred. Murky brown with a big, foamy beige head. Nose is bourbon, caramel, faint orange peel and wood. Medium body with a brisk tingle. Taste is on the sweeter side with caramel and maple then bourbon, grass and grapefruit. Impressive work from Stone but at a price.
