Double Bastard Ale 2011
served into mug
a. A dark ruby red color, and clean but barely opaque. A finger head with a bit of retention. a light bit of foam around the rim with a little bit of soapy buildup towards the middle.
s. A cherry flavor then meets with malts and a bit of a buttery diacetyl. Aroma is pretty tame.
t. A bright toffee flavor, then tame by a bit of malts, and then a bit of an alcohol burn. A fruity toffee flavor like some type of berry someone could be cranberry or something.
m. Very creamy, on the milder end of carbonation. Kind of oily and the warming alcohol lingers around your mouth. You can definitely feel the alcohol warming all the way down into your belly!
o. A nice sipping beer. I really don't know what to say here. I haven't had regular arrogant bastard in a while, and only had one other beer of this style. If ya dig American strong ales you're gonna have a good time if you drink this!

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.
