22 OZ. of 2002 double bastard.
simply bliss. wow.
the appearance is brilliant. bright, clear ruby red color. thick, full, off white head that sticks to the sides of the glass.
the aroma is heavy with malt, carmel, and alcohol, slight earthy and citrus scent.
taste... AHHHHH. so complex. from the first sip, i was in love. it was well balanced, full bodied and coated my mouth and trout with yummy goodness. for being such a large beer ( 10% ABV) it is hard to imagine that thie baby could be so smooth in mouthfeel. full of syrupy/chocolate malt. alcohol and perfect flavor hops. pretty earthy and little bit of a piney taste. i cant quite pick out the exact citrus, since i dont eat many citric foods, but it is kinda deep, and low.
the finish.. DRY, malt and alcohol. this beer is so warming its like a a hundred degree day with no air conditioning. it warms with every sip. watch out because this will creep up on you.

poured 22oz bottle into chalice. Dated 9/16/13
A - Dark amber with 1 finger eggshell head. Fair retention and no lacing.
S - Earthy hops, brown sugar, toffee, burnt caramel, and dark fruit. Scent is reminiscent of a barelywine.
T - Even at 6 months the hops are still very present. Earthy with citrus notes, they give off a bitterness. The malts come in with many different flavors of brown sugar, burnt caramel, toffee, and a little dark fruit. The finish has a nice bitterness to it.
M - Medium body with decent carbonation. Quite smooth with a barleywine like feel.
O - Big and bold this one can be drank fresh with huge hop notes or aged to make it more mellow and sweet.
