Ruby-brown with a one finger off white and creamy looking head. It's clear with a moderate amount of carbonation.
I'm picking up notes of caramel, dark fruit and alcohol as it warms. It has a very deep, rich smell about it that just pours out of the glass.
This flavor is thick with caramel malts along with a slight citrus hop flavor and as it warms the alcohol, which there is a lot of, starts to show through.
On the palate it's smooth and deep with malt flavors followed by citrusy hops. The alcohol heat rounds out the feel along with a nice malt aftertaste.
Double Bastard is a very strong, tasty beer great for a cold night. If this thing doesn't warm you up I don't know what will.
