Stone Southern Charred
Stone Southern Charred is an American Strong Ale. A member of the Quingenti Millilitre series 2013 bottled into 500ml bottles, no kegs. The beer is 2012 Double Bastard Ale aged in a complex series of barrels which comes out delicious and complex on the other end. The smell is of butter and bourbon, rich and decedent. The flavor is crazy good: lots of bourbon with layers of butterscotch, caramel, char, a touch of chocolate and some wonderful hop bite on the finish. The hops linger with a sharp bitterness that clings to the tongue after the taste. Incredible right now but also cellar worthy, this will probably only get better with time.
