This beer was sampled at the San Diego Strong Ale Festival 2004. This beer was the first one I ran to at the fest. It poured a reddish dark brown color with a very small pearlish white head and minor lacing. The aroma is oakey, malty, with some tangy orange, alcohol, and slight whiskey. The flavor has some heavy orange/citrus and hard alcohol with a heavy dose of caramel and malt in the finish. Strangely enough well balanced and smooth. Medium mouthfeel with some brown sugar toward mid-sip. It had some obvious wood qualities as it warmed and it definitely had some fairly active carbonation. This was a well rounded solid beer, but call me crazy..I enjoyed the regular aged Double Bastard more.

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2004
On tap @ the San Diego Strong Ale Fest. Poured a medium to a dark brownish color with a very small off white head. Flavors and tastes of sweet (almost brown sugary), citrus (oranges) and of course Whiskey. Woody. Whiskey stronger in the taste than the smell. I enjoyed this much more than the regular Double Bastard.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2004
The nose was really nice consisting of smokey, honey, whiskey, and malt. The pour was rich golden brown w/ hints of red and orange. The head was minor and almost no lacing. Big whiskey and woody flavors w/ hints of honey sweetness and citrus undertones. Creamy, medium body and little effervescence on the back of the tongue.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2004
This bohemoth pours with a deep amber body topped by a thin head with little lacing. The flavor and aroma are slightly sweetand fruity (orange?) with a nice alcohol note and a nice oak note. Full bodied, smooth and slightly warming.
