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.

From tap at Stone Bistro, as Double Bastard French Wine Barrels. Pours hazy brown with a lacing tan head. Dense wineous aroma with a dense caramel presence. Smooth and very grape fruity flavour. Dense caramel presence. Mild spiced too. Warming finish.

Draft at the Bistro. Pours a great looking dark maroon, with a small light tan head. The aroma definitely has some oak in it, with other grapes, and figs, and yeast all being there. The flavor actually is very oaky. Really pounds at you, although it seems to smooth this beer out a great deal. Some vanillafrom that oak was evident in the finish and sweeter aftertaste. Nicely done.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Draft at Stone Bistro at RBSG, aged on French Oak. Pours a deep copper with a dissipating off white head. Cognac like aroma. Nice body and mouthfeel. Initial flavor of caramel, maple, and sweet raisens that moves toward a spicy and subtle pepper bitterness. Wood comes through on the finish. This beer warms the wind pipe. Not quite as bitey as the Brandy Barrel version, and a bit more simple (in a good way).

Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
RBSG on tap. Has a smooth sweet, aroma. Not much of a head, with a moderate haze. Hints of almost burnt citrus. The oak flaver stood out in a very nice way. I was suprized at how much the flavors were effected by the different woods, or lack of.

A unique and gorgeous dark red, thick and foamy head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and inviting. Bitter and spicy up front, pleasant and malty. A nice beer.
