This Magnificent Double Bastard of a Strong Ale was tasted on-tap at Half Time beverage in Poughkeepskie, NY. The 2005 edition was rolled out and the decadence began.
The apperance was maple-syrup thick,amber,a deep golden delicious elixer capped by a thin layer of cream.
The aromas were pinapples, super-sappy hops, toasted grainy malts super-charged by a blast of alcoholic phenols.
Taste...Not sweet as expected, thank you Stone! Instead we have a rich fruity mouthfeel of caramels,malts,pineapples,apricots,cherry-like sweet/tartness followed by a spicy hop/alcoholic blast.
Mouthfeel is so thick,yet balanced fantastically by the alcohol and hops. The drinkablity is fantastic, but due to the alcohol content (and price) this one is a sipper that you never want to end. Followed this one with a stone RIS, my god, what a good day!!
Serving type: on-tap
