On tap at Lucky Baldwins in Pasadena, CA.

Billed as 2012 Double Bastard with toasted oak. 10.4% ABV.

Pours a clear orange-red with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, citrus zest, and wood. Taste is much the same with vanilla and woody flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but fairly strong.

2009 Is still tasting great after being cold stored for the last 3 years. What a nice suprise to have been treated to this from a local friend. The carbonation was a little off however that is to be expected after such a long time in a growler. Still enough carb. to give a nice off white head that lasted through the entire glass. Poured into a tulip, stone fruits came through as well as a bit of toffee. Slight hop bitterness showed itself toward the end making for a nice crisp sipper. Wish I didnt have to drink it while i was working. I would have enjoyed it much more.

Another bottle, enjoyed by myself. You have to like Stone's painted bottles.
Poured slightly cloudy, reddish mahogany brown, with a thin, cream colored head. Good retention, thin coating lace.
Smell had lots of bready malts, some sweetness but then lots of citrus hops. Nice wafting aroma of oak wood barrel.
Taste starts with some caramel sweetness, slightly fruity. Lots of bitter hops, earthy and leafy. Then comes the wood, touch of vanilla, nice oaky finish.
Medium to full body, medium carbonation, smooth, oak flavor hangs around giving a slightly oily mouthfeel.
Lots of flavor, but still easy to drink, no hint of the 10+ % alcohol.

A dark, cloudy caramel-coffee colored ale with an overly energetic pile of oatmeal colored fuzz on top and decent lacing. The nose brings somewhat boozy nutty caramel with a vague sherry touch. Woodsy malt is obvious, of course, and it's pretty enticing with a sort of fruit nougat sweetness and a grassy edge. The taste buds detect an elite Harvey's Bristol Cream sweet warmth with deep dark caramel malt and cashew and lots of woodsy tones. It's the top end of a medium bodied brew with a tempered but full carbonation and a pretty lush, smooth feel. There's a hint of deep evergreen/spruce mixed in with some licroice and dark fruits. It's focused on the caramel-malt-wood and sherry theme and it works pretty nicely, and is even reasonably drinkable despite the evidence of some of that hefty ABV. But still, no session brew obviously. A taste treat and just another Stone beauty, though it may be a challenge to some palates.
