Great mixture of malt and hops. Quite possibly the best American Strong Ale Iíve had. Really looking forward to experiencing more Stone products.

22oz bottle. Poured a rich brown with a small head. This was the first bottle Iíd had in a few years - smoother than I remembered, with more spice by smell than by taste. Smooth start with a hoppy, bitter finish.

I poured a pint from a 22, and I gotta say, it was bitter, very bitter. While I got the other flavors from it, it just was bitter, add had a very dry bitter after taste. I have been a fan of the oaked version of this beer, which I found to be a lot smoother, I have to chalk this experience up to the beer being old or slightly skunked. That being said, I still enjoyed the flavor while drinking the brew.

Smells great, pours a beautiful hazy brown and taste great. definatly on my top 5 favs

One of the greatest beers Iíve ever tasted. Bitter and strong, the Bastard is thick and rich. Some of my fondest memories involve this beer.

Piney hop aromas on the nose, along with some hints of caramel. Nice maltiness cuts down on the citrus/resin hop bitterness, very drinkable. The bitter finish lingers for a while, I enjoy it quite a bit. Definitely one of my go-to beers.

Definately a good beer...memorable. I donít think I would have been able to have more than one of these in one night...not because of the alcohol content, but because the taste is really stong. Too bad itís hard to find here and so expensive =(
