2005 Vintage - Poured into a DFH Snifter
Shared this with one of my BA buddies this past weekend. I have always loved the Double Bastard and this did not let me down. It poured a hazy dark ruby orange with very little to no head. The smell was full of oily pine and citrus. Huge malts with phenols and sweet candied fruit. Taste was an ass kicking mouthful of sweet malt, creamy caramel and a finish full of pine and grapefruit. Mouthfeel was rich and creamy, sweet and almost cloying. Just the right amount of carbonation make this reasonably drinkable for the ABV. It definitely rears it strong head as it warms but the experience is so full and rich you could care less. The DB is an arrogant cocky brew that is not for the faint of heart. I however will continue to enjoy it for years to come!
