When I had it fresh 2010 Double Bastard seemed a different beer to my previous experiences with the beer - alcohol presence was much more noticeably, and hops character was not as outstanding as with previous years.
Now, in September it's more drinkable. I cellard in my cold cellar 45 degrees. It is now a luscious beer with a complex nose. Alcohol, still noticeable. Malty aroma is nice, and it is not overly oxidized (have had overly oxidized DB off the shelves. The flavor is a bitter and malty (good balance) with quite a bit of cherry and caramel. Mouth feel is velvety. Wow, I am glad I saved most of these.
