Pours dark with full head from bomber. Aroma is strong. Starts easy and builds with bit harsh finish. Complex darker beer than I expected.

A solid off-white head atop a rich looking deep amber-brown colour. The nose warns of the malt to come, with a touch of citrus hops. Roasted malt is the hallmark of the "Bastard" series. Secondary tastes include rich dark berries, citrus and piney hops, and toffee. Solid richness in the body works well with the soft carbonation. A clean sweetness that isn’t cloying helps smooth it all together. A really great beer, but I am not giving it extra "Rogue" points.

Tap. Pours clear brown amber with frothy huge beige head, long lasting. Aroma is malty, toffee, fresh orange and hops. Some tobacco.Has grassy notes from the hops, almost minty too. Dried fruits and toasty malts. Quite fruity and fresh. Taste os toasty and malty at first, then comes the fruity, yammy and biitter hops. Alon some bitter chocolate and coffe. Delicious tobacco to find. Grapefruit, zesty orange and spicy honey. Light body with nice carbonation and hoppy fresh bitter finish. Quite creamy and oily feel though. Long lasting bitterness with some minty notes and peach candy.
This one grew a lot on me as i drank it! Really dry and toasty finish along the hops.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great strong ale with a delicious taste and aroma, despite its strong taste and hoppiness it won’t have that excessively bitter taste that many other well-known strong ales high in hops leave, but will deliver a fine feel in the palate. Perhaps one of the best strong dark ales around, a must-drink if you’re into strong hoppy ales.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Âmbar escuro, marrom, espuma bege de fácil formação e boa retenção. Aroma amendoado, açucarado, levemente alcoólico, bastante intenso e atraente. Paladar de amargor médio/alto, dulçor médio que remete a açúcar queimado, um pouco amadeirado. Corpo licoroso e baixa carbonatação. No aftertaste aparece mais um resinal, mantendo o amargor elevado. Uma cerveja forte, mas muito bem dosada.
