look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

poured 500ml bottle into chalice. Bottled Oct, 2013.

A - A murky brown color with a thin head. Fades quickly and leaves the slightest ring with some spotty lacing. Not the most attractive beer, but that is not what it is about.

S - Sweet brown sugar, molasses, burnt caramel, and some dark fruit. The bourbon, vanilla, and oak all stand out and there is some butterscotch. I don't find any of the hops in the nose.

T - Starts off sweet with brown sugar, molasses, and some dark fruit. The vanilla and butterscotch stand out more and there are notes of bourbon and oak. The hops are muted from the Double Bastard base with some noticeable alcohol. Has some Old ale and Scotch ale qualities.

M - Medium body with nominal carbonation. Somewhat of a syrup feel, but smooth with a warming finish.

O - This was really nice and shows you just how versatile Double Bastard can be. It had some qualities that reminded me of a old ale or barrel aged scotch ale.
