4.4/5  rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Clear medium copper color, with a small off-white head, which retains well.

Aroma: Very sweet caramel aroma with a mild note of aromatic hops.

Taste: Intensely, almost cloyingly sweet caramel taste, with secondary notes of brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit, moderated but not subdued by an undercurrent of metallic and medicinal hops, which finally overcome the plethora of sweet flavors and then fade away.

Mouth feel: Very rich, smooth, and full, velvety, with just a hint of soft carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: An utterly superb dessert beer, to be shared with friends. Double Bastard compares favorably to brandy or cognac, in my opinion. In my own estimation, a bomber of this is a bit much for a single person, both because of its alcoholic content and its richness.

Many thanks to Beer Czar Rick for generously sharing this excellent beer.
