On tap @ Haket Pub. Reddish brown with a small off white head. Malty and hoppy tones. Malt, fruit and loads of hops. Medium to full body with a long bitter finish.

Now available in Alberta, Canada. Not sure what the huge fuss over this one is, has some good malt characteristics and some spicy notes. Very pine-y and caramel-y. Decent beer but not living up to the hype for me.

Matly smell with a nice two inch head. Matly taste in your mouth. Going down a bit bitter and definitely nice malty after taste.

This strong ale from Stone bursts with a big hop profile and a sticky bitterness that lasts... Nothing weak here. While the hops certainly play a lead role, the malt backbone also comes through on the back end. Banana, Toast, Rind and just a touch of tobacco can be picked up. Truly a beer that sets itself apart from the pack~

Deuce poured into pint glass. Beautiful color, weak head. Decent ratio of hop to malt flavor. A staple for a reason, but not spectacular, just solud good beer.

Pours a deep, dark amber colour with a 2 finger head. Strong malt taste but stronger hops - heavy on both, but perfect ratio. Gets slightly caramel sweet when warmer. Thick after taste. Excellent

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a deep amber. Aroma is a little sweet malt and a little hops. Not getting much there maybe too cold. Taste is malt with a nice hop bitterness and a little alcohol. Really nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma was not as strong as I would have thought. Sweet malt, reminiscent of a pancake with the slightest hint of hops. Looks great - more red than brown with a white head of foam. Tastes strong, bitter at first, then sweet, then back to bitter in the aftertaste. Complex flavor, but a little too bitter for me. Perhaps it would be a little better with some aging. Palate is good for the style. Overall good, but not something I would actively look for. I thought Double Bastard and Lucky Bastard were better.

The branding and story on the bottle was excellent... Probably the best story for a beer. The bottle is definitely a keeper.
Nice brown color with a quarter inch creamy head. Malty flavor with a good hop hit, but not overly bitter. Very balanced and easy drinking.
