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. Course theres always the masochists...

Pours a very reddish amber with a small white head that laces the glass. Sweet, floral aroma, it definitely tells the tale of the road ahead. Big, sweet, and sticky malt blast up front is met with a lesser hop finish, with a trace of burning alcohol. Mouthfeel is certainly thick and sticky, but its balanced enough to make the 22oz bottle enjoyable, not a chore.

Stop. Hammer Time. Violence in a bottle. This will turn the baddest mofos into little piteous heaps of blood and tears. Itll send shivers down your spine and decrease your fertility by 23%. This stuff is too good for a puny mortal like myself. In short: Awesome.

Pours a syrupy deep amber color, kind of brownish, with a thick crop of tan foam. Nose is thick and sweet, with hints of caramel and citrus. Flavor is thick as well. Heavy sweet malts give way to an overpowering alcohol vibe, has a heavy heat on it. Again with stone, you get a beer that isnt terribly good, Its just a kick in the mouth.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
Dark copper with a nice tan head and great lacing. Big dark fruit aroma of plum/raisin. Lots of malts upfront with a great bitter kick at the end. Lots of lingering bitterness at the finish. I prefer the regular bastard but this ones a winner too.

Had a friend bring be a 3 Litre of DB for Super Bowl weekend. It didnt last one day! Another huge beer by Stone, actually easier to drink than Arrogant Bastard.......

A great beer that I thoroughly enjoyed drinking. Great color, aroma, minimal head, and a taste that was both sweet and a bit fruity at the same time.

I brought a HUGE bottle to a board meeting to celebrate the launch of a startup; I brought it to make the point that a truly unique product can sell at a premium price and does not need to competet with commodities like Budweiser solely on retail price. Appearance is good ... a striking copper gold, crystal clear, with a frothy tan head. Nose is sweet toffee, sweet fruits, and alcohol. Taste is sweet toffee, dried fruit, cherries, and an alcohol burn; the strong bitterness is not quite sufficien t to compensate for the alcohol. Mouth is syruppy. The pieces are all ok, the total package is a little better than ok, but with a bit more carbonation to cut the syrup and less of an alcohol presence this would be much better. I strongly prefer Arrogant Bastard, Ruination, Smoked Porter, and a few others from Stone.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 A well timed trip to Seattle allowed me to score one precious bottle of this stuff. I checked 7 places that had some, at least at some point, and one bottle is all I could I find. Not bad considering I live in helplessly Stone-less Florida. Very good beer. The beer poured out of the 22oz bottle with little head. There wasnt much in the way of aroma. Being a Double Bastard I was anticipating double everything youll find in a single Bastard. Not the case. Still I found it a very smooth and balanced beer. The only fault I find in this beer, other than its availability, is that it was a little too smooth and subdued. Not a bad thing at all. Just not what I had expected after waiting so long to finally get a bottle. I thought Id get run over by the In your face taste I was expecting. Great beer. Id love another.
