A- Pours a thick dark red/ caramel. Some head that fades, leaving little carbonation present.

S- Sweet tangy pineapples. A bready malt background. Hops stand out.

T- Under ripe pineapple. A sweet caramel malt. Bitterness with some burnt notes. Light alc detectable.

M- Thick and chewy. Lingering in both flavor and bitterness. Big and wet.

D- Only slight alc. A great beer.

The Double Bastard poured a deep mahogany color with a wicked foam head that left some nice sea foam lacing. It set up the way a guinesss does with the carbonation rising to the top.

The aroma is very caramel and cherries.

The taste is smooth with a little alcohol flavor. It is initially sweet and finishes with a nice burn, then goes back to sweet. "Round of shots on me".

Overall a wicked strong ale but as the bottle says only for those not faint of heart. I might need to go to bed after this and sleep it off.
