On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a hazy dark amber with medium off-white head. Aroma brings out toasted caramel, woody oak, and still loads of hops detectable. Flavour is quite complex, full of toasted caramel, quite a bit of the oak, and lots of hops. Loads of depth in here, with the toasted oak adding a wonderful element on this. Excellent stuff - even better than the base beer.brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 7, 2013

On tap at PIB, pours a hazy amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma of wood chips, caramel, and still quite a big punch. Flavour brings out loads of wood chips, caramel, and piney hops. A nice mix of wood and hops, with a solid caramel malt backbone. Very solid stuff.
Served as 2006 Double Bastard on French Oak. Mahogany pour with a soapy off-white head. Huge oak aroma, caramel sweetness, mild vanilla, and a fair amount of alcohol. A definite apple note, too. The flavor has some spiciness to it, presumably from the oak. Mild charred oak notes, vanilla, caramel, and toffee. A bit of alcohol and some green apple.

Bottle. Poured reddish brown color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy malt, wood and earth hop aroma. Moderate to full body with a smooth slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy biitersweet flavor to medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with a complex standout beer.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a tall long-lasting beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread, citrus, vanilla, and pine. Flavor of hops (citrus, pine), caramel malt, and vanilla. This beer has heavenly goodness! slowrunner77 (12044) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 20, 2014
oaked: "a little sweeter and less intense than the "regular" double bastard. quite a treat if you can find it! i still like the regular a little better. although the wood notes are nice, the additional sweetness and comparitive lack of punch makes this one fall just a hair short...great beer though!" 4.2
dark oak: "A surprisingly unique, but at least equally as awesome companion to Dbl Bastard and the not quite as good Oaked Dbl Bastard. The charred oak really imparts a nice sweet and smokey quality without covering up the base. Can’t say it is definitely better than regular old DB as I didn’t do a side by side, but it is a big hoppy monster tasty brew." 4.4
I’d add these seperately but they’ll just be aliased (though they are significantly different brews). hopscotch (11101) - 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.
