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...

Finally got my hands on some! Pours dark brown with a ruby tint when held to light. Faint off whit to brown head that disappeared quickly. NIce carmel smell with mild cirtus raisins pine and hop aroma. Flavor had chocolate , molasses hop flavor , light cherry , and some vanilla flavors. very impressed with this brew! And the price makes it even better..

excellent beer the alcohol is very present and has a devastating effect. not for the faint of heart. Very pleasantly bitter aftertaste, not unlike Campari, but not as sweet strong hop presence

Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a brown, copper-red liquid light can penetrate with a small amount of off-white head that perfectly compliments the beer color. Head dissipates quickly, but leaves a thin film. Aroma is of sugar, some malt, molasses, and hand candy like "rocks" and circus peanuts. Flavor is of overpowering hops ending somewhat, or faintly dry. High alcohol content warms the belly and may be why that taste isn't too unpleasant. Good alternative to wine. Sampled at 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

One mother bruiser of a beer. Solid aroma on the pour highlighted by bright citrus and freshly baked bread. Beautiful ruby coloured body with a velvety tan head. Sweet and warming up front featuring citrus and pine hops backed by caramel malts. The mouth is very full and filling. Bitter, bitter, bitter finish! As it warms, the ABV becomes more prominent and the background flavours of anise and whiskey cask present themselves. This is a sipper from start to finish.

Wow. Without question the strongest, angriest, beer Ive ever tasted. I had been waiting on this one for a while since Im from a backward state when it comes to "malted beverages." Its piney, citrus-y, hoppy, bitter, and was thoroughly enjoyed with a bowl of chili (the first time). Color was deep gold, head was light and dissipated moderately. Even as an IPA lover, this one wouldnt be a daily drinker -- more of a special occasion one to pull out.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2004 Wow, what an ale! I generally enjoy Stone products a great deal, and my first encounter with the infamous Double Bastard was definitely satisfying. If you like strong, "hopped up" ales, you must try this once. Their label's blatant arrogance is justly backed-up by the quality of the bottle's contents. This is one wonderful, delicious, fun beer. The alcohol is omnipresent, as is the hoppiness that softens up a bit as you sip and allow the beer to warm up a little. I've tried this one several times now, and keep wanting to try it a little warmer than frigid, but I'm always too impatient to let it sit unrefrigerated.

Another winner from Stone. Pours a ruby red with a tan head that dissipates to a thin layer of bubbles. Aroma is caramel malt, with, of course, boatloads of hops. Flavor is a bit like Oaked AB, but I think there is a heavier malt flavor to this one. Hops are obviously American flavors... grapefruit, some pine. Im not sure what I like better, Stone beers, or the insults they print on the bottle.

2007 Bottle, aged one year. Pours a dark murky reddish body with a loose off white, almost tan, head. Huge vineous alcohol scent with sweet sticky bready notes beyond what must have been a hop overload. Sensation is still hot on the pallate with lots of alcohol soak and dry puckering bitterness. It feels disorganized on my pallate like the malts are all boozed up and dont know how to act. Flavors are deep and complex with citrusy hops, caramel malts, boozey vodka like alcohol notes, and some sweet woody malts. Still not sure what to make of this one, but I know not to mess with it.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2004 Split a 3 Litre bottle with some friends. One beer everyone should try. Seems more like a barleywine...
