COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like the lacerative muther of a beer that is Double Bastard Ale, rye whiskey is not for everyone. Not remotely. Most are not emotionally or otherwise equipped to appreciate its unbridled intensity. So to sequester Double Bastard Ale in rye whiskey barrels is to conceive an experience that no doubt will be treasured by only a select few. It takes a special breed of exceptional depth to thrive under such demanding conditions and emerge with such stunning vibrancy. Something this sublime should never be squandered, however. Those plagued by even a smidge of self-doubt should look elsewhere. This rare treasure is strictly for those possessing the capacity to appreciate what many just like me.

500 ml release. Templeton Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A hazy reddish amber beer with a hgue most good lasting beige head. Aroma of strong red malt, riped fruits, wood. Taste of strong wooden malt, vanilla, riped fruits, oak, quite nice!

Pours a dark cloudy orange/brown with a creamy yellowish light tan head. Aroma is whiskey and vanilla. Taste is sweet roasted malt, caramel, whiskey, vanilla, toast and medium hop bitterness. ABV is noticeable in the taste and the warmth after the swallow. A little harsh around the edges, but well balanced and very good.

Slightly hazy amber color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, rye bread, resiny hops and wood notes. Taste starts sweet and malty, some spicy whiskey on the middle, resiny hops with quite intense bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. A really intense ale, malts and hops alike, not too boozy for its really high ABV.

2015 vintage drank 1/21/18. Murky deep amber under a medium-thick light beige head. Lovely caramalty biscuity aroma that’s got loads of rye whiskey barrel woody nuanced with a slight whiskey sweet undertone and some boozy phenols and general caramelly sweetness. Smooth and complex flavor that’s all at once amber biscuity malty, whiskeyed, woody, lightly charred, bready, boozy, warm, semisweet and lingers with some soft whiskey barrel flavors. Lingering warmth and light oak char and semisweet amber maltiness. Amazing.

Decadence personified. So much going on, hard to know where to start. The aroma is second to none: Lyles treacle, caramel, Devon fudge ( @Geek_girl38 ) Taste: Black Forest gateau, coffee, vanilla, oak, whiskey shines through on the long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 It looks like someone poured your ale in a dirty glass and I love it but I love double bastard and a rye old fashion so it’s a giving that this bottle is right up my aisle.

Kurtos (226) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours a copper/bronze colour. Aroma. can't smell much, faint whiskey smell and cinnamon. Taste. Flavour is very bitter with no other discernable hop characteristics, whiskey, dark fruits, spice. Overall. quite a nice beer, but I would prefer a beer of this type to have less bitterness and more pronounced malt profile, a complex beer with plenty going on, not my favourite but i can see why others would rate this highly.

Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle corked and capped poured into a glass. Copper with small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel malt, whiskey, wood, and a little alcohol.

Zapach karmelu, alkoholu, nuty whiskey. Smak mocno karmelowy, silnie wyczuwalny w posmaku alkohol i chmielowa goryczka. Piwo klarowne, piana mało imponująca. Najmniej imponujące z Bastardów, które piłem. Powodem alkohol.
