X (172) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle as Southern Charred Double Bastard Ale(2015)(C&C). Roan brown with no head. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, toffee. Taste was a bitter whiskey. Palate was full and sticky. Finished long and sweet with vanilla and bitter walnuts. Very good, but not what I was expecting--when I see the word charred on a label Im thinking some campfire smoke, not this. Paired well with dry roasted peanuts and aged cheddar cheese.

Padron4KM (809) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2015
2015 bottle, poured into a tulip. Murky reddish brown, with a creamy beige head.
Aroma is oak, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, faint hops, and dry yeast.
Flavor is malty sweet up front, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, toffee, and finishes with a nice oaky dryness, and grapefruit hop bitterness. Never boozy, and abv is very well hidden.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Deeply tinted red colored ale. The head is full and dirty white. The aroma is oak, steel, and medicinal. Rich malt and deep brown sugar dominate the flavor with strong notes of rye, oak, and vanilla. Good replacement for liquor if beer is your poison.

** Bouteille sous la vieille tiquette Southern Charred 2014 ** - Une mousse mince se pose sur une bire voile aux reflets ambrs. Du bois imbib dalcool, quelques pices et surtout du gros sucre dorge forment son bouquet. La signature ronde et malte de Stone est au rendez-vous, supporte par une vague chaleureuse dalcool fort. Les tannins de la barrique sont trs puissants, coupant ainsi un peu le sucre. Du bonbon liquide.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2015
2013 bottling; Sampled February 2014
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a one finger thick, amber tinged, tan colored head. The beer is a dark, concentrated amber color that shows a richly hazy, red-amber hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells tart, of vanilla, toasted coconut, with some rich buttery oak notes, and lots of warming, spicy, Bourbon fruit character and alcohol.

Slightly sweet, perhaps a touch of Bourbon tartness, and a finish that is quite oak influenced with a mix of rich, buttery, toasted coconut and vanillin character. Bitter hop notes have mellowed quite a bit, but are still quite present and help to balance the rich malt and sweet accentuating Bourbon notes; the bitterness gets a bit more firm in the finish where it combines with a bit of hot alcohol. Fruit notes of concentrated plum, and a touch of fig, as well as lots of fruit leaning Bourbon notes. Rich, definitely a sipping brew, though the barrel aging lightens the beer up just a bit.

Beers with a strong Bourbon barrel influence just arent my thing in the end; this is enjoyable in small amounts, and the Bourbon heat can get to be a bit too much after a bit.

Erzengel (8447) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2015
Many thanks to Rian. 2013 Series, Batch No.7. Nice sweetish-round nose. Intense dark beginning. Malty, easy to drink for the ABV. Nice smooth round body. The malty body fits in ideal to the woody vanilla whisky beer. The aftertaste is long, smooth. Vanilla, wood, nice malty dryness. Great. Dry fruits, thick. Liquorice, great depth.
