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.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Nice dark appearance with brown head. Aroma of citrus, pine, hops and notes of caramel. Taste was mostly bitter with some very light sweetness. Not my favorite, but not bad.

It has a good Full body flavor. The malt gives a caramel taste with the hop aftertaste which is delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beast has a lot to it. You get licorice, sweet alcohol and hops in the nose. Very pleasant indeed. Then along with the obvious hefty malt and pungent hops you’d except there’s a flavour I can only describe as marmite followed by a bitterness that almost hurts. Very interesting and well worth trying even if it isn’t exactly to my taste.

For me: Yes! Found another great reddish ale to add to the collection. 7.2% ...nice color, perfect hoppiness

Deep red amber in the glass. Cream-colored head. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Tasted like burnt caramel. Light on the palate. Decent.

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!

One of the best ales I've had. A very dark, deep red, and a nice head. A full bodied ale with a great taste, can't wait untill my local pub gets the Double Bastard.

This is a great American beer. I was stationed in Germany for a year, and this is better than anything I tasted there. Bottle: Dark brown color, nice very light tan head. Smells sweet carmel. Tastes fantastic, bottle description is right it is "sophisticated" smooth bitter carmel hoppiness. Rolls down very smooth. I will be visiting this brewery on the next visit down to SOCAL. Superb.
