1st rating I guess! On tap at Hamiltons 2nd Saturday. Pours a rich amber. Hop bitterness hits first and then fades to a sweet caramel. The French Oak really builds up as your drink this one and almost gets to the point where it last like you liked the inside of the barrel. Mouth is really smooth, a little hop. The Oak adds a nice layer to the already good DB.

Ungstrup (35682) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2009
Entered to celebrate my rating number 13,300. Draft at Stone Bistro as Double Bastard French Oak. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of sweet malt, caramel, and oak. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, oak, and over ripe fruits. Thick body.

Aroma of sugars, caramel, honey, oak smoke. Flavor very similar, but a bit of a stale taste, tap dirty? Nice brew though, would have again.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2008
On tap @ Stone, RBSG. Deep amber color, thin light white head. Heavily tannic aroma over rich malts, peppery hops and alcohol. Slight vanilla also. Taste has a defined alcoholic burn along with a defined spiciness given off by the hops and oak. Very much more oak forward than the brandy barrel version, but I really like the fresh oak characters, so I dug this one.

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Draft... RBSG 08... Hazy, brilliant orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Terrific retention. Muted, sweaty, woodsy nose. Full-bodied and very smooth with soft carbonation. Caramelly, malty flavor with sufficient bitterness to keep things in balance. Lengthy, bitter finish.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2008
On-tap at STone the day after the RBSG get together. Menu said "06 Double Bastard w/ French Oak. I assumed that meant it was oaked like AB is oaked thus I am putting my rating here. Pours reddish amber with a whispy, offwhite head. Smells spicy, dark hoppy with a big sweet wood presence as well. Sweet malt flavors hit the tongues first and then a ton of sweetness from the wood. Sweet oak flavors throughout and to the finish with a bit ofspicy hops and some alcohol. Full body, good carbonation.
