Rainy day, kind of hungover from the weekend...why not pop open a double bastard ale? Pours a cloudy, amberish brown with a thick, pale caramel head of foam. After a few swirls, I'm picking up a strong aroma of juicy citrus, and fat caramel malt. The raisiny, dark fruity character of crystal malt harmonizes with the heavy dosage of American c-hops for an assertively rich, robust flavor. Huge bitterness on the finish. Medium - full bodied, has a perfect amount of carbonation to keep it from being too heavy. Such an enjoyable beer, so smooth for near 11% abv. The balance achieved between massive malt and massive hops is incredible, making this a world class beer in my book.
