Gerbeer (3258) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
500 ml bottle as 2015 Southern Charred. Pours a mahogany color with moderate creamy head. Aromas of brown sugar, sweet malts, and jammy dark fruit. Flavors follow same with additional notes of toffee, light pine, light oak and pepper. A bit hot but not distracting. Like a smooth barley wine. One of the best Stones IMHO.

December 14, 2015 - Southern Charred bottle from Total Wine. Brown pour with nice amount of head that lasted. Aroma was caramel, vanilla, hops, light whiskey and wood. Taste was consistent with aroma, but quite a bit more bitterness than expected with the aroma.

Bottle - 500mL corked and caged. 2013 Series. Batch No. 7. Muddy brown pour with a medium, foamy tan head. Aroma is big caramel, toasted malt, toffee, hints of toasted coconut and soft oak. Taste is big caramel, toffee, vanilla notes, light booze, toasted coconut, sweet malt, toasted dark bread and brown sugar. Subtle faded hops as well. Body is medium-full with a moderate, creamy carbonation and a light warmth to it. Ends with more caramel, floral hops, booze, brown sugar, toasted coconut, oak, toffee and light vanilla. Yummy!

ctipping (1490) - Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2015
500 mL bottle. Murky deep brown body. Smells of whiskey, caramel malts and brown sugar. Very woody. Taste is caramel malt. Pretty sweet. Bourbon. Brown sugar sweetness. Then oak and bitterness take over, cutting all sweetness. Abrasive hop finish. Heavy. Bitter. Not very boozy, though. I remember the Rye version being a little more complex, but this is good.

Beerdrinker79 (2081) - Idaho, USA - NOV 22, 2015
500 corked n caged ml bottle known as Southern Charred, 12.7%- Pours very hazy dark amber with an off white head that sticks around more than i thought it would. Aroma is toasted oak, coconut, vanilla, bastard, intense and lightly fruity. The taste is oak, vanilla, toasted coconut, very reminiscent of Firestone Walker barrel beers, complex, good.

X (172) - California, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle as Southern Charred Double Bastard Ale(2015)(C&C). Roan brown with no head. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, toffee. Taste was a bitter whiskey. Palate was full and sticky. Finished long and sweet with vanilla and bitter walnuts. Very good, but not what I was expecting--when I see the word charred on a label Im thinking some campfire smoke, not this. Paired well with dry roasted peanuts and aged cheddar cheese.

Padron4KM (802) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2015
2015 bottle, poured into a tulip. Murky reddish brown, with a creamy beige head.
Aroma is oak, caramel, bourbon, vanilla, faint hops, and dry yeast.
Flavor is malty sweet up front, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, toffee, and finishes with a nice oaky dryness, and grapefruit hop bitterness. Never boozy, and abv is very well hidden.

kidmartinek (4751) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Deeply tinted red colored ale. The head is full and dirty white. The aroma is oak, steel, and medicinal. Rich malt and deep brown sugar dominate the flavor with strong notes of rye, oak, and vanilla. Good replacement for liquor if beer is your poison.
