COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

22 oz Bottle, with a 14 oz pour into a snifter. Pours reddish brown with a nice head that lingers around for quite some time. Aroma was at first nothing but hops with some sweetness, perhaps caramel? First taste was very similar with a very hoppy finish. Very easy to drink. As I continued to drink I could definitely pick up some other sweet flavors, really couldnít pinpoint what exactly they were though. All in all though, an amazing beer that does not seem to be rocking the high abv it has.

Pours with lots of soapy foam head. Actually smells sweet to me. Taste is very malty with bitter and caramel on the end. This one starts off too sweet and malty for me but then the bitterness kicks in a good way with a twinge of caramel on the end which is strange but good too.

Coper colored with white head. Citrus aroma. Smooth taste with hop bitterness initially, followed by a malty finish. Great beer. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into pint glass, Dark amber to ruby color, heavy with generation of a small amount of off white head. Nose of candied fruit and malt. Initial flavors of alcohol and buttery hops, turning malty/sweet and finishing with a slightly bitter hoppiness. Very good, perhaps much better with age.

BrooHa (120) - New York, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Pours a murky copper. Off-white head. Smells mostly of dark fruits like plum and fig, dark sugar. Strong but smooth. Earthy, nutty (?) Alcohol prevalent but warming. Really nice. Iíve had this before but not for a long while. I wonder why I donít drink it more often? Could be new addition to cold weather quaffables. I still wonder if Iím worthy?

22oz bomber poured into a large Duvel tulip glass. Pours a cloudy brown color with clear golden edges and a one inch head that leaves no lacing. I love the smell of this beer. Thereís so much going on in terms of the aroma, hops, cherries, malt, dark stone fruits and some alcohol. It is 10.5% after all. The taste came up a little short in my opinion. Even after it warmed up the fruit and malt flavors werenít as pronounced in the taste as did hops and alcohol. Still, this is a really good beer that I think can only get better with some aging.

Pours a hazy copper color. Caramel citrusy taste. Hoppy flavor. Thick on the palat. Low carbonation but the head retention is very good. Alcohol warmth is noticable but not overpowering.

2006 Release, Rated 11/21/06. Pours a deep mahogany red-brown with a medium light brown head. Thereís a nice piney, herbal hop aroma to start with, and then some grapefruit citrus kicks in. Thereís good malt presence in the nose, mostly caramel, and sweet at that. Double Bastard is big and full bodied. Lots of malts, lots of alcohol, and above average bitterness. There is quite a bit of sweetness to this beer, and at times youíre reminded of a flat cola. As time goes on, Iím noticing more and more spiciness. Thereís definite pepperiness from the alcohol. Thereís something similar to the aftertaste of a good cigar. Maybe something like nutmeg or even a bit of cinnamon. The beer is smooth drinking for its alcohol, and it passes with a fairly long bitter finish. Given the current sweetness and alcohol, I can only imagine what might happen to this beer after aging a few years. You could be looking at an American competitor to the likes of J.W. Lees.

22oz. bomber. Pours a clear, dark copper color with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly. Heavy aromas of citrus fruit, hops, grass and some hints of apple. Flavor is of bitter fruits and hops, but has hints of sweet caramel and some spicey notes. Mouthfeel is very soft and smooth. Better then Arrogant Bastard and one of the best Stone brews I have tried.
