4.18/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Double Bastard pours a deep ruby color with about a finger of head. Retention is decent, but there ends up being no lacing at all. At 11% ABV, not that surprising. Still a good looking beer.
Smell: Toasted malts, caramel, a bunch of resinous hops, and some rummy booziness are all prevalent. It certainly smells stronger than the regular Arrogant Bastard.
Taste: Caramel and toasted malts are very prevalent up front, with some booziness and plenty of hops on the back end. Honestly, this beer reminds of a barleywine with a more roasted malt profile. It tastes very good.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied with fairly low carbonation leads to a syrupy, very smooth drinking beer. Very nice. This is a pretty strong beer, and I can tell. It's certainly not a chore to drink, but it's also not the most drinkable beer I've had by any stretch.
Serving type: bottle
