4.83/5 rDev +13.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
This is really one of the only A+ beers a man can drink. 22oz. bomber.
It is a cloudy beer.
It smells like heaven. You can smell everything there == malt, hops, and alcohol. Perfect balance.
The taste is something for which one could die. I thought Ruination was amazing---this is the end-all if I have ever had an end-all. BUY IT, DRINK IT.
Mouthfeel is thick. The 4.5 is there just to keep it real.
Drinkability==drink two or more and you will be as $h!+f@ced as anyone...but is it not the best feeling EVER? 4.5 is so you know that you may not know exactly what you are doing after two bombers. You may not taste the 10.5 right away, but it will show up in your decisions after the fact.
Do yourself a favor---buy and drink two. You will smile for a while.
Double Bastard is it. Really---the only thing close is Pisgah's Hellbender (and I bet you will have a difficult time finding that).
Thank god for DBA. Stone is king.

Served on tap in a 14oz glass at Heartbreakers in Chaska.
Great beer, who's 2013 edition is far better than some of the recent Enjoy bys. In a beer this strong, you sometimes worry that the alcohol content will take over the taste profile. That is definitely not the case here.
