popway (178) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Well, dont 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.

Bought this as Southern Charred 2016, which is Arrogant Bastards bourbon barrel-aged barley wine (basically their Double Bastard Ale under a different name). Corked big bottle poured into a snifter. Appearance is murky and hazy, as if its apple cider thats been shaken before pouring. No head or lacing. Aroma is musty old ale with whiffs of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, smokiness from the bourbon barrel, and a slight tannic, acidic scent. The flavor is all of the above on steroids followed by a balancing hop bitterness and the boozy burn of its 12.6 percent-alcohol. Mouthfeel is syrupy with almost no carbonation. A good winter sipper. Typical of the Arrogant Bastard beers, not for the meek.

Fantastic aromas and flavors of whiskey, resin, oak, piney hops and some spice. Copperish color and weighty with good carbonation.

So intense. So intense. But this is stone. Barrel concentrated into an intense beer with tons of caramel. some hops and lots of tongue conquring flavors. wow. I have had better but it is nice, but at the price not getting it again.

deyholla (10686) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a tan head that dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of sweet grains and caramel with some whiskey and a bit of bitterness underlying. Flavor starts with sweet grains, caramel and toffee but finish has more of a barrel bite and a light grassiness.

Taste is malty and sweet with huge caramel and toffee notes as well as fruit jam and oak character. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very well hidden alcohol. Very good!!

Corked bomber of "Stone Southern Charred." Mahogany Amber color with creamy, hazy appearance. Bourbon dominates but does not overwhelm. Malt, toffee, vanilla, woody. Good stuff.
