diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle at the Düsseldorf Gathering. Lightly hazy amber body. Creamy, lightly brown body. Splendid aroma of liquor and a lot of american hops. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet (caramel) flavour. More than ok, but the balance is not totally perfect. But still very complex. Not too aggressive.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, dark amber with an off-white head. Very pleasant hop aroma. Medium body with some caramel. A very discreet whiff of aroma hops, but otherwise just a raw and unrefined bitterness. A bit of a disappointment. 291206

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2007
Dusseldorf Gathering, Bottled. Very fruity and floral aroma mixed with whiskey. Orange/brown color, yellow head, good lace. Until now ok, but nothing exciting. But the flavor is something different. Sweet, hoppy, fruity, in the end very hoppy, not much oak though. Dry mouthfeel. Very complex, no exploding flavors but they are increasing slowly.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2007
I know this is deemed a great beer but it just was not my type. The oak adds an od flavor to the palate and the finish. It did have good body!

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 7, 2007
Bottle. Clear orange brown coloured with a beige head. Aroma of hops, pine needles and fruits. Flavour of malts, fruits, hops and pine needles.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottled. Pours a hazy mahogany with a lacy yellow head. Aroma of grapefruit, apricots, vanilla and wood. The body is medium, and the taste has the same notes as the aroma, but they are quickly overwhelmed by bitterness. This bastard gets a bit of wood at the finish.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle. Ruby colour with a big beige head. The aroma is of wood, almost fruity, citric hop aroma and the taste is very dusty and dry, malty, floral hop and wood. Medium body with a light vanilla and wood finish.

aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2007
bottle, not as "dark" as I expected. flavor or color. Sort of a burnt nutty flavor, with a strong citrus hop flavor. Lots of hops. Also does have a nice mellowness to it, a recognizabley oaked ale.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2007
bottle. subtule, really subtule(sp?). I remember the bastard as a hit you upside the head beer, and this was more of a laid back beer with a really nice hop flavor. Could be the oak, or just my palate actually getting used to the amount of stuff Stone puts in the beer. Tasty, but would probably not have again.

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 1, 2007
12oz bottle: a dark amber with an orange head. Nose of hops and citrus. Taste of wood, malt and again more hops. I too prefer the origibal or the double bastard, but still good
