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. íCourse thereís always the masochists...

Ahh...I feel satisfied by the Bastard. Beautiful amber appearance, strong head and a powerful aroma filled with maltiness, hops, and yeast. Flavor is very hoppy, the spiciness of them lasting long after the beer has gone down the throat. This is a strong beer that demands respect. The flavor changes as it warms in your mouth. A well hopped yet well balanced recipe. I might buy another bottle and let it age for a few years. There are definite possibilities... Just try it and you wonít be let down.

Look: Ruby red body, creamy off-white head. Smell: Sweet caramel malts, fruity, pineapple, pine, brown sugar. Taste: Caramel, slight tropical fruits, earthy bitterness, semi dry finish. Feel: Medium body, tight carbonation. Overall: Agressive hop bitterness with extreme malt sweetness. Nice balance between the both. I wish this were year round. I prefer this vs. A.B. Recommended.

Pours a beautiful dark copper. Taste is strong, and it truly takes Arrogant Bastard to the next level. Some fruit tones, strong hops. The alcohol is well masked, but you get a slightly warm feeling afterwards. For such a stong beer it is incredibly smooth. This one is at the top of my list.

Bottle from Kenny Road Market in Columbus, OH. Dark amber color with a fluffy tan head. Wonderful aroma of hops, citrus, and more hops. Great caramelly, malty, fruity flavor with a thick mouthfeel. This beer is big and beautiful.

Amazing brew. Aroma is surprisingly very sweet. Drinking straight from the deuce-deuce so the bottle looks nice. Flavorful with a very bitter finish. Nice!

Coudy red without head. Sharp smell of sweet hops. Citrusy fruit taste. Astringent finish with a sting at the tip of your tongue.

Bottle. Ah, the Double Bastard. Iíve been looking forward to this since I started to get into craft beer. One of my first craft beers was the Arrogant Bastard. And now, having obtained this, Iím quite ecstatic. As I pour this, itís a dark ruby/amber with a really nice, velvety light tan head. As I swirl this beer, a cloud of bubbles engulfs the beer about one inch from the surface. The aroma is very intense in grapefruit and hops with subtle hints of banana. There are a darker fruit aroma to it, but I canít exactly pinpoint what fruit it resembles. As I start to quaff this beer, the pine and sharp grapefruit citrus qualities becomes very evident. More subtle notes, such as banana and darker fruits start to appear as the brew starts to pass the tongue. The finish is dry, much like a grainy bread, and a hopsy bitter. The alochol in it is a little noticeable as it warms the chest. This is amazing. This has lived up to my anticipation.

Copper color, like a dirty penny. Not much head, not alot in the way of lace. Aroma is funky, sweet molasses and caramel. Fruity. Lots of hops in the flavor, big stong malt backbone underneath. Flavor notes are hop oils, toasted wheat bread, and something smoky. Very full flavored, rich full mouthfeel, this one rides along like a barley wine, nothing less. Not a strong old ale as listed. This is a barley wine, one which could use a few years in the cellar in my opinion.

Yum! Beautiful color with a slightly off white head. Sweet, but not too sweet. It balances the hops very nicely. It has some definite citrus notes. I noticed flavors very much like orange blossom honey. This stuff'll kick you ass.
