When Double Bastard Ale spends months sequestered in Kentucky bourbon barrels, a most unique reverse-transmogrification takes place. A once-burly behemoth emerges as a stunningly graceful beast, with its bold, bullish roots lingering just under the surface. This Southernized paragon of liquid glory exudes sophistication, exalted character and uncompromising independence courtesy of American oak. Only the worthiest of imbibers are invited to experience a fleeting yet unforgettable encounter with this rare breed. This is what awaits those with the eye, heart and inner fortitude to step up to Southern Charred.
The result is a monster of a beer that, in addition to its brawny malt bill and raging hop character, also pounces on taste buds with a well-rounded assault of vanilla, smoke, butterscotch and caramel.
