COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

A great beer. Certainly on the strong side with gobs of hops. Bitter yet smooth, a perfect blend with the cheese raviolis I just had for dinner!

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2005
A beautiful pour, with rich color and great frothy head. A prominent nose of flowery hops. A great initial sweet taste of malt and a hint of honey, which blends smoothly to the huge hop finish. Great beer. Had it on tap in San Diego.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Smells dry and roasty. dark brown/red color with tan head that lasts. Very chocolatey with a strong bitter finish that lingers on the tongue and roof of the mouth. Very roasty aftertaste.

What has not already been said about this beer hundreds of times. A great American strong ale. Big malt Big hop and great depth. Great mouthfeel and wonderful finish. I wont go ito depth here. Everyone else has said it. Except much better on tap than out of the bottle which is still pretty good.

Arnoud (35) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Big, like all Stone beers. On draught at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Philadelphia. Small but tight head. Big hoppy nose with plenty of malt coming through. Reddish color. Lots of hop bitterness at first then the malt comes through. Bitterness lingers for a long time on the tounge. Might he slightly too malty for my tastes but still a great beer.

This rocked. First brew of the day at Mike’s going away party. Very hoppy, tasted of spices, chocolate, hints of pine. awesome dark appearance with perfect amount of tan head. great way to start the day at liar’s

rauchbier (3731) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2005
2000th rating, I am finaly worthy. Bottle, with big thanks to BeerLimey for this. Deep chestnut, lasting yellow beige head and good condition. Initial hit of sweet chocolate malt before the blast of spicy resinous hops takes over, big mouthfull of roast barley, sweet caramel malt, pine resin, menthol and mouth tingling hops. Excellent restrained hop bitterness, raw grain and toffee linger into the finish.

Brilliant deep red pour with reocurring tan head. If you like hops you wont mind the bitter finish at all, I don’t. It really has some kick but the alcohol is hid well and for my taste is well balanced. This is what I wanted Double Bastard to taste like and I stand by my statement that if you add a shot of vodka to this beer you will in deed have created Double Bastard. This reminds me of a more bitter Bigfoot Ale.

All very good, except for the excessive hops. Too much of a bitter aftertaste, but overall excellent. Would recommend to anyone who likes strong ales.

Tastes like anyone’s homebrew. Too hoppy. i guess I’m not worthy. I’m grateful.
