4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brilliant deep red pour with reocurring tan head. If you like hops you wont mind the bitter finish at all, I donít. 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.

Pours a gorgeous dark red, fruity aroma with HUGE hoppy flavors--yet it never becomes unbalanced. For anyone who likes a beer that bites back, this is a brilliant choice.

Dark red/brown in color. Aroma is of mostly hops and some malt. You can definitely tastes the hops but is balanced well with malt. Overall a good beer.

Fridge Temp. Strong spicy hops aroma. Luminous blood red in and English pint with a tan head that laces well and mostly diminishes. Flavors are huge, supperhoppy, resinous and complex with a unique, massive spicy mutant cinnamon like flavor dominating. Finishes with pronounced bitterness but a nice almost port-like aftertaste. A fun, spectacular beer.

Overall pretty solid beer, Looks absolutely beautiful, nice dark reddish brown color with a tannish head, smells tastes strongly of hops, still plenty of roasted malt flavor too, not my particular cup of tea, (tasted very West Coast to me) but I can taste and acknowledge this is a solid beer Thank you Probiere

The 22 oz. bottle pours brilliant deep red copper in color with a giant tan head; good lacing. Bountiful hops dominate the aroma, but I also spotted some caramel malt. The initial palate is malty sweet (and more so as the ale warms). There is a powerful, unsubtle hop finish with slight alcohol warming and a super long-lasting aftertaste.

Tap at the Yardhouse, Long Beach. Dark amber colour, with quickly gone white head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy and malty taste. Full bodied with very noticable alcohol. Not bad, but I was expecting better.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 Rating Number 100.. Poured an dark amber color with a two finger head that dissapeared quickly. Nice hoppy aroma with a malty presence. This one kicks you in the face with taste. Very heavy hop beginning with a bitter yet malty middle and some alcohol and hops bitter in the finish. Definitely a great beer.
