Southern charred share. Aroma is lots-o-whiskey and almost a barley wine aroma. Appearance is brown with a cream colored head. Taste is lots of booze. Palate is dark and sweet. Overall, a good charr flavor with whiskey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Picked up a bottle from the Stone store in Pasadena. "Southern Charred" 2014. Pours dark brown/amber with intense aroma. Smells of malt, caramel and bourbon on the nose. Super dense, but smooth for the high alcohol content, 13.2%. I consider this a dessert beer but highly enjoyable.

Enjoyed at an all barley wine tasting at Traviss house on February 21. 500 mL bottle was labeled Southern Charred. The pour was a nice amber color, pretty foggy, with a thin ring of cream colored head. The aroma is pretty heavy on the bourbon. There are hints of vanilla as well, along with lots of malts. The barrel is quite prevalent on the nose. The flavor has a lot more dark fruit than the nose offers. The booze makes its heat fully realized as this is pretty toasty. The mouth feel is pretty thick, with a nice carbonation that helps keep the flavors lingering. Nice boozy and malty aftertaste. Only think this will get better with age

Muddy, rusty, Sedona pour with a small eggshell crown. Caramel, toffee, molasses, vanilla, oak, whisky, and hints of cocoa. Really good but enjoy DB...this might be a slight improvement but slight is slight.

(from notes) Bottle shared at the Stuffed Sandwich last week - thanks! 2014 bottle. Hazy amber pour. Hoppy bourbon malty goodness accompanied by a rather substantial bitter finish.

Bottle (2013) shared by wolf. Nose of slight smoke/peat/moss.... Pours a muddy red color. Nose of bourbon/vanilla. Taste reminds me of a barley wine... to be more exact north coast old stock barrel aged barley wine. I love the strong malt presence...light smoke/moss. Tons of dark fruits with a slight burn from the high alcohol content. Body is super smooth and will probably get even better with age. Wish I had a bottle to age but oh well. ****good night to a classy lady known as Annie. Rest in peace.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with minimal of white head. Aroma of bourbon and oak with some hops. Taste of yummy malts, hops, and booze with some nice oakiness.

Aroma is vanilla, oak, cinnamon, coconut, roasted caramel, molasses, toffee and roasted malt syrup. Appears a deep copper with no foam whatsoever. Taste is big bourbon, oak, coconut, toffee, vanilla, and caramel latte upfront. Some more subtle notes of roasted molasses, roasted amber malts, espresso oils, cough syrup and strong malt syrup. Overall, this is absolutely incredible. Im really impressed that I can taste the base beer on this one. It literally tastes like Double Bastard with bourbon, vanilla, coconut and oak added. Also, this is smooth as hell. I get no alcohol burn on this whatsoever. Really impressive.
