Bottle share courtesy of Rich. Big rich wooden notes abound, smoky, caramel, stinging palate. Sip, savor and enjoy.All the best Double Bastard has to offer, enriched with some nice barrel aging. Tasty.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2009 Double Bastard aged in Bourbon Barrels. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep amber with an off-white head and nice surface bubbles.

Smell - Incredible bourbon and oak barrel notes. No booze, but also not much of the base beer on the nose.

Taste - Bourbon, vanilla, and oak. Caramel malt. Still has quite the hop presence of Double Bastard. Bitter and oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Not boozy. Not very thick, either. Oak and hops make the finish a little harsh.

Overall - Loads of vanilla. Excellent barrel flavors. I never would have thought the base beer a good candidate for barreling, but this worked out nicely.
