This is my third go at Double Bastard. 22oz Bomber into an Arrogant Bastard mug (without bias).
A: Stellar...beautiful red. Thick foamy head that makes you wait...damnit.
S: Dark fruit with aromatic hops. The aroma will not prepare you for what is ahead.
T: Dark cherry blast of sweet malt that is immediately offset by hops...and then the battle begins. This is how Stone does beer; Malt. Hops. Malt.Hops.Malt. Hops...big long bitter finish that ends with the perfect marriage of malt and hops that results in this signature Stone aftertaste that reminds me of cotton candy: It's in virtually all their brews. I don't kmow how they manage to do it so consistently across so many styles. It's just so damn delicious. This is a world class brew.
D: For me, very high, I can drink anyone under the table, so the alcohol doesn't even factor.
Notes: This is liquid ecstasy...man, I could really die for this.
Serving type: bottle
