Ron (3549) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle. Nose of bourbon, smoke, caramel, vanilla. Lovely red-brown color with lace. Sweet bourbon and caramel flavor, toffee, hops and alcohol to balance, making it a bit hot and burning. Silky, oily, decent palate, sweet and boozy.

jb (2898) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2016
In the Christmas 2-pack - I enjoyed this much more than the single arrogant rye one. Similar barley-ish nose full of booze fruit and caramel, but the body and taste was much better with this one. Candy-ish sweet stick notes perfectly fused with the warm booze. Very hazy dark orange.

GenDV138 (5703) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016

poisoneddwarf (2269) - Coeur dí Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 9, 2016
16.9 oz corked and caged, as "Southern Charred." Aroma is damn near perfect for a bourbon barrel beer--coconut, caramel, vanilla, touch of whiskey, raisin. Itís an ugly beer--muddy orange-brown with an immediately collapsing beige head. Taste is sweet and boozy with strong flavors of licorice along with those aroma deScriptors. Fairly low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. A tad too boozy for my tastes, but itís still good.

Travlr (21169) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle as Southern Charred. Clear amber color, off white head. Aroma of lemony pine resin. Taste is very resiny, very bitter and boozy.

DuffMan (9497) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle, purchased at the brewery as Southern Charred BBADB. Murky amber, golden highlights. Tons of sweet whiskey vanilla, buttery toffee, chewy, with a long bitter finish. Sweet and warming.

jbruner (3922) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Pours a murky golden brown from the bomber with thin tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild vanilla and caramel malts. Taste is bigger, with an interesting hoppy bight, but mostly barrel. Not worth the money, but decent enough.
