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...

Like cake batter - sweet and thick, warm and spongey - with a hint of toffee icing and the slight tang of raspberry glaze on top.

Dark pour, the label is worth the price of the beer. The beer is strong but pleasant.

The classic, kick your palletes ass beer. Malt sweetness, good hop background, and nice warmth from the alcohol.

An excellent kick butt ale. Strong but not overwheming. Kind of thick/syrupy but that is good and Double Bastard passes the test as to its worthiness to accompany a good afternoon of tv football. This is definitly worth the expense to give it a try.

22oz Bottle. Reddish amber hue, crystal clear, almost glows in the glass. What could be a hop assault on the nose is balanced nicely with sweet malt and alcohol warmth. Aromas of big fruity hops, big earthy hops, toffee and caramel, mollasses, and alcohol. Flavor is also incredibly well-balanced for how big the beer is. Sweet and syruppy, with flavors of big pungent hops and thick toffee malt, smoothed out by a healthy bitterness and drying alcohol throughout. Finish is warm and semi-sweet. Drinks like a nice barleywine, fantastic stuff!

Wow, reminds me of a double IPA with tons of malt present as well! Packs a big punch, you will say wow when you take your first sip. Very syrupy, almost burns you with the alcohol present, more like taking medicine than drinking a beer. Nice.

Big woodsy hop nose, sweet toffee and very fruity flavors. ABs big brother, certainly. Plenty of peppery alcohol in the finish. Viscous mouthfeel.

Fantastic hoppy/molasses aroma. The taste is odd - it certainly has a lot of hops, but it doesnt really taste like beer that much. It leaves a clingy feeling on the back of my teeth and really thickens into something less than stellar. I wouldnt even call this a top-five Stone beer.

This beer introduces itself with a robust aroma of hops that lures you to inhale even deeper to discover the subtle hints of caramel and citrus that linger ever so faintly in the background. It goes on boasting a deep chestnut color, but it lets you know its confidence as its big thick camel colored head rests perfectly upon that solution. After you have been awed by this beers introduction and its strong demeanor you let this fluid into your mouth to experience an explosion of hops. The solution is thick and hoppy. There is a mild sweetness that hides in the background which turns into a mild citrus taste in the aftertaste. This beer warms the throat and then the tummy. The hoppy taste hangs on eventually turning a little nutty as it sits in the throat waiting for you to replenish it with another drink.
