Honestly, if you had the southern charred, you prob won't like this. This is nothing like it. Two completely different beers. For one, this is very much like a bastard with a hint of bourbon, tad bit of smoke, very soft on the palate. All in all, i'd skip over this again. It wasn't bad, it as actually very well done. I just can't go to this now that I've had southern charred. It's missing the sweetness that I love. This is just an incomplete charred.

On tap at Champions in Copley Square in Boston.

Was an "experiment" for Stone to see how far they can stretch the bourbon barrels; this one was done as a third barreling. Not a significant taste of bourbon, but I was left with a much more bitter, burnt wood quality. Overall not terrible, but not what I was expecting.
