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.

Deep red color and Strong full bodied flavor. Stone brewery is fast becoming a favorite of mine.

This is some good stuff. Assaults the palate with a strong bitter taste unlike anything ive ever had.

Stck in a Holiday Inn in Flagstaff, AZ I wandered across the sreet to a gas station to buy a couple of beers. I bought this brew and what a find. This is an excellent ale! Nice dark copper color, a small head, pine scent, tremendous flavor, very enjoyable.

Want to chew a beer? If you are a bud light lover, you will not like this beer. If you however like strong bitter beers, this is your beer. This is definately an agressive beer to quote Greg Koch. One of my personal favs.

Dark red in color. A strong, harsh piney aroma. The bitterness is not balanced well in my opinion, or maybe I'm just getting fed up with beers that pretend to be great through high IBUs. Assertive but not balanced right. Not a big fan of this one.

Good stuff. Skunky aroma, a little bitter, yet easy going. This was very enjoyable to me. I give props to the fine brewers over at Stone for this one. Go so cal!

Wow, the best of the three Stone Brewing Co. beers I've tried. A intersting red amber awaits you as the bottle is poured. A interesting blend of citrus and and other bitter flavors are expierenced. Would recommend this beer to anyone. Thanks mwsf for the Stone's experience.

Pours a nice deep amber color with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine immediately greets you. The flavor has as complex a hop flavor as any beer I can recall. Grass, pine, and citrus hop flavors all blend well on a background of malt sweetness. An excellent beer that hides it's strength well.

Long live the Bastard. Great beer. Just the right amount of hop flavor. Looked great. Poured great.
