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.

thomat (2200) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2014
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.

MunBro (575) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

Mora (15) - West Milford, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Matly smell with a nice two inch head. Matly taste in your mouth. Going down a bit bitter and definitely nice malty after taste.

Look 9/10 Smell 17/20 Taste 33/40 Feel 7/10 Drinkability 16/20 Overall 82/100 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.

exeter (399) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
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.

coachd (173) - Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2014
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.
