This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

This beer..... has the wonderful taste of crushed asprin. But towards the bottum of the bottle I started to notice the hops. And it reminded me of a really crappy, watery version of my homebrew. Its an ok beer.

Deep copper color with ruby highlights.Nice rocky tan head and nice lace.The smell is sweet with apples,grapefruit, and a light hint of malt.The taste had apples,hops, and a little malt.Hop bitterness in the finish.Well balanced.Medium-heavy body with lots of carbonation sting.Wouldnt take many of these to mess someone up.Seem to have more kick than 7.2%.Good beer indeed.

(draft) Roasty, malty, hoppy, weirdness. Id like this more without the bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Re-rate, the first Stone bottle I have bought in our Great Lake State. Transparent ruby red with nice off-white head that lasts awhile, revives with a quick swirl. Duvel glass is completely full of lacing. Huge bitter pine resins up front, very sticky, plenty of caramel and syruppy mollasses in the background. Flavor again all pine resin up front, pine through and through, but surprisingly balanced in a way. Huge malt backbone really helps balance this out. Very smooth palate/mouthfeel. Bit of alcohol showing up for only 7.2%, still well done regardless.

One tasty, great beer. Not a beer for all, but well worth the try. This is one hell of a beer! Buy one, open one, drink it, and become a Bastard!

What is there to say...perfect. Strong hops, no balance what so ever, just strong hops. Dry, Crisp. Perfect

This beer comes out kicking. Thick off white head stays a while on top of the beautiful red/amber pour. Grapefuit is the dominant aroma here, although there is a hint of floral as well. Roasted malts add a bitter chocolate base, which is offset by a very bitter hoppy finish. I get a hint of grapefruit in the finish as well.

Bottle obtained from Trader Joes in Phoenix. Deep copper with a small white head. crisp citrus hoppy aroma, there is also a little bit of caramel? This is great, lots of bitterness up front, creamy body with lots of malt to back it up. Finish is bitter but doesnt last quite as long as Rogue Santa. Im looking forward to trying the Double Bastard that I have stowed away somewhere.
