Had on tap at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach on 11/16/07
After working a 24 hour shift, I needed a little pick me up with a delicious pulled pork sandwich and Double Bastard at Beachwood
Poured into a 16 oz pint glass for $6.00
Looked good, very dark ruby red with a minimal head that left early in the drinking experience
Smelled a bit strange to me. Perhaps it was served a bit too cold, but I could pick up very little in the nose besides over-powering hops and some sort of funky malt
Taste was great as ever. Very spicy hop bite, followed by a thick malt and then flowery, grassy hops.
Mouthfeel was very good too. Thick, coating and delightful. This seems in the mouthfeel to be a bit more barleywine-ish, but the beautiful use of hops quickly kick some sense nto me that this beer is held above all standards and in a class of it's own as an American Strong Ale.
Drinkability was good, because I wanted another with lunch, but the pricetag and 10% alcohol persueded me to call it quits.
Another very fine example of craft brewing from the masters at Stone.
