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...

Poured on tap at Stone Oceanside. Aroma is rich malty sweetness with a generous portion of hoppiness. Taste is toasted malts, raisins and a little plum. Nice hoppiness in the taste with a lingering astringency. Huge fan of this beer.

Appearance-great dark amber appearance with a wonderful head. Aroma-very good. Slight alcohol smell with plenty of hops. Flavor-Very complex taste with alcohol finish. Not for the weak. Palate-Smooth. Leaves the bitter taste but not like Runination. Overall-Good. I don’t know if I could drink this all nite. I think after one bomber, I would be done. Overall a very good beer. I like the Ruination IPA better but this is good.

deep copper amberwith a fairly frothy light brown head. nose is potent West Coast hopswith a touch of barley sweetness.this beer is aggressive as advertised with tons of hop bitterness balanced against a big sticky barley malt. alcohol is well hidden. A very well made American barleywine

What a lovely and luxiourious beer. The aroma sets the bar VERY high. It Hoppy, a little flowery, and slight undertones of malt and alcohol. This beer is much more full bodied and round than it’s little brother. It does not really have the spikey upfrontness as a regular bastard. ;) But this is because it is just all things wrapped up in one drink. FAR more strong booze wise than it tastes. ;) Unlike ABA, it is more equally balanced between malts and hops, with malts getting the edge slightly. This is a hard beer for me to describe since it is able to be ALL things except weak.

Aroma - a touch of oak along with the malt? A touch of caramel. Hops are staying in the background. Some alcohol though not as prominent as I would expect given the ABV. Appearance- a fairly dark copper with very little head. Pretty clear. Mild to moderate carbonation. Taste- not as sweet as I would expect given the ABV. Some fairly distinct bitterness. Palate - medium to full body, finish has that wood flavor on it. Overall a good enjoyable beer. Not quite complex enough to be a great beer.

Heavy toasted caramel malt flavor. Very bitter and tons of citrusy hop flavor. The malts and hops are very well balanced. There is a slight alcohol finish. The body is full with a creamy and syrupy texture along with soft carbonation.

Good beer. Honestly reminds me a lot of regular arrogant bastard. Another solid creation from stone.

Deep red-Brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma is citrus, pine, caramel. You can taste the alcohol from the first sip. Also has a citrusi, hoppy flavor with a sweet hint. Did not like it because Of the alcohol taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

i have to say that i like the arrogant bastard over the double bastard. the double has too strong an alcoholy flavor which overpowers the others. a bit sweet with nice hoppiness. a decent beer.
