I've many of the Stone beers, but this one has escaped me. I will pick up another bottle to cellar without question. A lot of complex flavors. I was a bit worried, because the last couple of time that I had Arrogant Bastard. It was then stellar. It was once one of my favorites, but perhaps I've had a few bad batches.

As for Double Bastard. I will cellar this one. The alcohol taste plays a big part. The normal flavoring comes out caramel, toffee. Raisins strong, also a very slight citrus, or orange zest in this one.

A: Pours an orange, but more of a red. Finger of head with aggressive pour. Moderate lacing, fairly minimal retention. Carbonation appears moderate. Beer is just shy of being clear. Some haziness.

S: Big, bruising toffee malts. Lot of spice from the hops. Citrus, floral in combination with the large malt presence. The smell is kind of the opposite of what you taste.

Take this beer slow.
