What is there to say about this? It’s a glorious taste that cannot be described in "wine" terms. wetherel (1899) - Cupertino, California, USA - DEC 1, 2007
On tap at Stone’s 2007 Double Bastard Night. Listed as 2007 Double Bastard with Oak Chips on CASK. Another tap was labeled 2006 French Oak Barrel Aged. I didn’t want to enter too many variations so this category will lump some together. Great fluffy cask head. Great mouthfeel. Small bubbles all over the place. Cloudy dark amber color. Very, very drinkable. Not bitter. Mild aroma. Least bitter of the double bastards, and my favorite of them all (by 0.1-0.2 points). Sweet. Excellent. Double Bastard is one of my favorite beers. I have been collecting and aging these. I now have 04,05,06, and 07. Tasted with kp, eyedrinkale, oodeftone (on BA), and darkelf. carl4beer (522) - Fairfax Station, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Draft at stone. 2006 on french oak. pours a ruddy brown with little to no head. aroma is a bit sweet with a hint of wood. mouthful is less sweet but with all the double bastard flavors. finish is dry and has a lingering mouthful of wood. great aging of the DB!! ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 30, 2017
One of the best of the beers in the Stone flight we sampled at the Flying Saucer back in 2011. Only now getting around to transferring the rating. Quite nice, the added vanilla character of the oak aging mellows the bastard a bit. 505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - DEC 17, 2007
I like this beer a lot, on tap at 2007 SD SAF. Like the normal double bastard, but somewhat dulled down hoppiness, and nice vanilla oakiness.
