Southern Charred

Double Bastard Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels


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 for those with the eye, heart and inner fortitude to step up to Southern Charred.

Drawn Off Unfiltered. Aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels

Cellar Notes

This oak bomb bursts on the palate with a well-rounded mixture of deep caramel, molasses, hops and char plus hints of brown sugar, with bourbony influence amplifying the beer’s maltiness. These interwoven flavors crescendo in an intense, lingering finish, yet for such a high-gravity beer, it is one helluva smooth operator. Quiet. Confident. Arrogant.
