Well, donít get me wrong. I enjoy Stone offerings, including the Double Bastrad, their Enjoy By IPAs, and their Imperial Russian Stout, but this was not one of my favorites. Unfortunately, I got tngled in the enjoyment of this hybrid. Does everything have to be barrel aged? I think the nose is the best sense here for me, sweet and upfront booziness, but the taste does not run concurrent to my expectations. It has a bit of bite in the tail, but is like a tug of war for me, and there is no clear winner.

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: Iíve 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 Iíve ever had. After re-reading Stoneís marketing materials, I found out this beer rested in bourbon barrels that once held Stone Suitable for Cave Aging Ė An Imperial Smoked Porter Tribute to Danny Williams. Smooth edges, decadent flavor profile, damn near perfect.

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.

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.

KyotoLefty (6569) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle as Southern Char. 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, wonderful palate. But too sweet, but very nice.

500 ml caged and corked bottle (labeled as Southern Charred), bottled October 2013. Served in a Great Lakes Brewing chalice, the beer pours a murky hazelnut brown color with about an inch tan head that stuck around for a little while. Thereís also a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty, the brew smells like toffee, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit (raisins), and wood. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some plums, dark bread, candied oranges and a little bit of peppery spice. Mouthfeel/body is full, itís syrupy and creamy with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good brew. Itís pricey at $19.99 a bottle, but definitely worth trying. Iíd consider buying another bottle if I found some again.

A great beer that has a fantastic balance between the peppers and malts and oats.

bytemesis (3318) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle, as Southern Charred. Pours cloudy hazel, medium creamy tan head, dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Quite a pretty beer. Aroma is bourbon, toffee, toasted caramel, vanilla, oak, other dark sugars. Flavor is fairly sweet and medium bitter, rich and malty, vanilla and bourbon everywhere. Full body, rich creamy mouthfeel. Perhaps a bit harsh on the finish.
