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.

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 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
