clear copper color with a two finger tan head with good retention and lacing. The aroma has caramel malt, oak, brown sugar, and citrus hops.

The taste is a very nice combination of sweetness and bitterness with toasted caramel malt, brown sugar, oak, citrus, and pine. Nothing subtle about the taste of this beer, which is probably why I love it so much.

Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Has a bit of a sticky feel, and a bittersweet aftertaste. Very nicely made.

Pours a clear, copper color with just over one finger of head that had good retention. The head settles to a thin cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass.

Interesting aroma just like all the Stone Bastards. Pine and citrus hops in the forefront with a deep malt notes of caramel and bread.

Hop flavors lead the assualt on the tastebuds. Citrus, pine, and herbs are all there. Bitterness is moderate to high but there is enough malt sweetness to make the beer palatable. Nice caramel/toffee notes. Just the faintest hint of oak. Booze comes in the finish with flavor and warmth.

Solid body and wonderfully carbonated. One of the better Stone beers in this area. Great big beer texture that is smooth and gentle despite the alcohol in the finish.

A very good Bastard. A blend that worked in this case.

A: Deep, clear ruby red with a light brown, frothy, pillowy head that builds well and fades slowly leaving behind good lace and great retention. Nice when held up to light.

S: Huge burst of sweet, roasted malt, caramelized sugar, maple sugar, wood, earth, and a bit of booze. Give it a swirl to build the head again and some really complex aromas come out. Maple syrup, bourbon, dark, dried fruits...as the beer warms, some strange metallic aromas come out and it smells too sweet. I'm not gonna knock it too much because it's been in my glass for nearly two hours.

T: The flavors are very complex, as well. Heavily roasted, almost smoked or charred malt stand out with hints of booze and wood. The booze is very complementary with the malt character. In my opinion, the blend works out really well. I'm a big fan of this.

M: Surprisingly not-so-heavy body with a clean, flavorful finish. Fairly cloying at room temperature with plenty of time to breathe. But that's just the heavy roasted malt tiring out the palate I'm sure.

O: Awesome concept with equally awesome execution. To me, the Oaked Bastard really shows itself. Fantastic stuff!
