Poured into a pint glass from a bomber...
A. Pours a dark mahogany with a nice cream head that coats the side of the glass as it thins. For it's strength, it is quite active as far as carbonation goes.
S. Biter hops overwhelm the nose at first, but soon aromas of graperuit and pine stand out. The malty backbone is only somewhat present.
T. Reminded me at first of Arrogant Bastard, but then it hit me with that hoppy character. Flavors of pine, citrus, and hemp were dominant. The finish was malty. Sweet and supple, yet aggressive on the palate.
M. Wow. This was a brew that soaked the tongue and stayed there. Full bodied and smooth ay the same time, the alcohol didn't even really poke through. It was there, and there to stay. That flavor didn't leave the palate for quite some time.
D. Double Bastard is no session beer by any means. A 22 oz. bottle at a time is all one needs. Very tasty though. If you can find it, buy a bottle. It's definitely worth the taste.

4.2/5 rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
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.
