This is a lacerative muther of a beer. The evil big brother of Arrogant Bastard Ale. It is strongly suggested you stay far, far away from this beer. Those foolish enough to venture close enough to taste will experience a punishingly unforgiving assault on the palate. ’Course there’s always the masochists...

This beer will knock your socks off!! It starts strong and finishes strong, lots of,"kick your butt flavor." One of the best I've ever tasted.

Truly Double the Arrogance. Very hoppy to start, then the hop/caramel/citrus tastes settles in, with a clean slightly sweet finish. I would never guess the ABV without checking the bottle. This really knocked my socks off!

Alotta anticipation in this one. Red/brown color with a very small head of orangy bubbles. Aroma was buttery with toffee, and malt followed with the unmistakeable blast of the hops. Flavor was huge with a massive, creamy almost sweet start then hitting the hop mingling together and finishing dry with a long wonderfully bitter aftertaste. This beer is very thick on the palate but finishes great. Though I am a fan of the big stouts I have learned alotta respect for these type of beers... Bravo to Stone.

Easy my fave of the Stones, sweeter and stronger, yet balanced with a more powerful hop bite. also more brown than the single bastard, and a more cumulous lighter fluff to the head. fruit and pine aromas, good finish.

I laboured over whether to enjoy this Ale tonight or wait. I thought about saving it for my 100th rating but decided against it (Impatient Bastard). I considered sharing it with my Brother-In-Law but decided against it (Selfish Bastard). After I made my decision to enjoy it I had difficulty logging on to rate it (Unlucky Bastard). The time is now. Deep garnet red with a slowly evolving, dense tan head. Pralines, candy sugar and citrusy hops on the nose. This beer has a definite beginning, middle and end. Initially, the mouth is greeted to sweet malt, candy sugar, sundried tree fruit and a floral bouquet of hops. Suddenly, an all out piney, citrusy hop attack. The finish is floral and sweet with a warming alcohol burn. I'm glad I didn't wait, but it leaves me wondering what Double Bastard might evolve into if given the time.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2004 tasted like fruit salad and boiled vegetables together at once. iced coffee aroma. not a lot of subtlety. plums, aniseed and obviously heaps of hops. but no real yeast or malt character. entertaining but not all that pleasant for this wussie. ta be to the bastard

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 Hazy and dark amber. Long-lasting beige white head. Syrupy sweet aroma of peaches, lemon and grapefruit. THICK flavour! Starts sweet, like spinned sugar or syrup. Then the fruity hops sets in. A grapefruity flavour that just keeps growing on. It's brutal and I just love it. Long hoppy finish (duh). Thanks to ciderguy for this gem!

2003: Wow! I thought regular AB was good. Double Bastard is great. Very thick and sticky with a hop bite to make your tastebuds crave for more. Grapefruit in the nose, and a sweet hoppy flavor.

This was one of the surprise beers that The_Beer_God included in our trade, Mike, YOU ROCK YOU NUTTY BASTARD!!
Rating # 370
2003 Release: From just the pour this Bastard is screaming “BITCH, don’t talk back or I’ll back hand your sissy ass!” A deep rusty mahogany body with a dense and lofty tan pillow of head. The nose is full of massive amounts of toffee, caramel, grapefruit, and wild berries. Exceptionally aromatic and delightful!
Sooooooo much malt in the palate! This is a caramelized grapefruit, freaking big brown sugar, that smoky Canadian grade-A molasses, and CITRUS out the BadonkAdonk! Big notes of Plums, Apples, Blackberries, Raspberries, and Apricot, damn good stuff! The palate is very velvety and viscous, hops up and slaps you with a bitter / sweet bite in the finish!
A damn fine Beer, but if consumed in vast quantity I think it would be a bit much!!
