22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 7.99. Served in a large snifter. 2011 vintage, no bottling date.
Pours russet brown with 1.5 fingers rich cream head. Fair lacing.
The smell is a nice blend of tropical hops and sweet biscuity caramel malts.
Taste delivers on the smell. A simultanious punch of big sweet malts and orangey hops. Bold, unforgiving and tasty. The alcohol kick blends nicely.
Mouthfeel is moderately thick without much carbonation at all to get in the way. Fairly resinous, coating the tongue for a long bitter hoppy aftertaste.
All in all this is a damn fine beer. "American Strong Ale" is a vague style but that's definately what Double Bastard is. It's big, bold and satisfying. I'll be drinking more of this in the future.
