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...

If arrogant bastard is a bit one-note, youd think double bastard would be even more so, but this is a trickier beer than the original, not-born-of-married-stock ale that was the beer that got me hooked on Stone and craft beer in general. This one has some sweetness to counter the harsh bitterness. They is something chemical and off-putting in the aroma that makes this hard to enjoy. It affects the taste as well. The high abv is masked very well. Perhaps I could get used to the off smell, but I am not going to try too hard. Not worth $8 for a 22-oz bomber

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle at home in front of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Pours a very attractive deep Red/Amber with a cream coloured head. Quite intense aroma of toffee with perhaps a little pine on the edges. Flavour is extremely in your face. Caramel and booze. First impression is sweet but thaat quickly subsides to bitter. The booze has an immediate warming effect on your chest. A huge beer with a lot going on. Very enjoyable.

Big toffee blast on the nose. Caramel, dark fruit (plum; maybe a bit of figgy pudding too), and more toffee. Piney hops, roasted malts. Excellent sipper.

A nice complex beer, while strong is easily approachable. Notes of molasses, honey, cereal, raisin, fig compote, apricot, chocolate, hazelnut, coffee and baking spice. Nice and creamy on the palate a true example of one of the best craft brews out of the USA.

Bardzo, wręcz agresywnie nachmielone , bardzo słodowe, sporo karmelu, biszkoptowe, rodzynkowe, pomarańcze, żywica, kandyzowane owoce, dochodza lekkie nuty herbaciane, może ziołowe. Piwo bezkompromisowe i potężne.
