So I just got knocked on my ass. Thanks again Stone!
I decided to treat myself to some Double Bastard Ale for my birthday, you know, because I figured the good people at Stone would now how to humble a guy and entertain him on a lazy birthday! Somehow I feel more awake...
Anyways, the beer comes in a bomber with TWO fiendish looking gargoyles on the cover and a diatribe about how I don't deserve to drink this beer. So I told them to "Suck it" and proceeded to drink it anyway. The brew pours a murky golden brown with a head the doesn't give a $%@#.
The aroma has hints of pine, carmel, malts, hazlenut, and a hint of honey-bourbon. The flavor hits you like a ton of bricks, although tempered slightly by the light carbonation. This beer is going to take you on a rocky ride whether you like it or not - I can't even pin down all the flavors coming at my palate. There's a buttery overtone with strong hop-citrus, balance by thicker malt flavor for balance...and surely a host of other flavors.
Overall this beer will set your soul on fire, spit on it, then make YOU pay for parking. Tread with caution.
