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...

Poured an amber dark color with an off white creamy head. Aroma was hoppy and citrusy, very nice. Flavor was harshly hoppy but I loved it. It had a smooth finish and alcohol was hidden nicely as well. Ill be getting more of these in the future.

22 oz bottle. Very excited to be able to pick up both this and Lucky Bastard at the same time; thinking it made more sense to have the Double Bastard before Lucky though. Pours a bronze/brown color (reminds me of a dark apple cider) with a small light tan head. Smells of light citrus, dried fruit, a bunch of hops, a bit of caramel, and a little alcohol. Taste emphasizes the hops, dried fruit, with the alcohol being more cleverly disguised near the end. Very heavy body to it, and definitely packs a punch. Very impressive, and makes me excited to try the Lucky Bastard.

Dark orange pour with a thick white head. Head subsides after time. Smell of pine hops and florals as well as molasses and something else sweet. Taste is powerful hoppy and malty with a complex taste at the end of malty sugar giving way to piney hops.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2008
Huge light brown head, that lasts a long time. Aroma - heavy malt, dark bread, light hops, resin, and dough. Also allspice and pepper.Initial flavor is sweet and moderately acidic. Can really taste the alcohol. This was good, but not great. I have a few others that Ill keep for a year or so to see what happens.

mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Deep dark red color with off tan head. Heavy malt in the nose mixed with some hops and flowers. It almost punches you on the first taste, heavy hops with grapefruit covered in honey. Almost leaves your tongue numb. Heavy mouthfeel, great flavor, very bitter. Extremely solid, like this one better than last years, very aggressive

Flaske, drukket sammen med klubben. Uklar rverd, stort set intet skum. Dufter og smager af mrke trrede frugter, karameller, noget gran og godt med humle.

BCAR (223) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Rich brown color with a layer of cream on top. Sweet malt with alcohol detected with the aroma. Very enticing. Initial taste is malt with a high alcohol front-end. I have had this before, but not noticed the overwhelming alcohol presence. Overdone a l little. Have to try again.

Very good. Very malty. Almost like a barely wine. Probably one of my favorite strong ales.

Fevernova (222) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2009
22 oz Bottle -- Pours a rich cloudy amber with an off-white head. Very complex and balanced. Malts are strong providing caramel, dried fruits, and some roasted flavors on the back end. Hops are there for sure bringing some citrus and pine. A little salty and the alcohol is very present on the palate. Flavors last long for a long finish. Its arrogant bastard turned up a notch with some more sweetness.
