A nice dark copper color with a thick off-white head. Good retention. Brown sugar, caramel, hops, and citrus on the nose. Taste of sweet caramel, bread, bitter hops, and a slight alcohol finish. Like a double IPA, only a bit darker. Delicious. Thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation.

Amont my favorite beers of all time. Even better than the regular bastard.

Note: This bottle was a year old. I've had it fresh and at a year old, and it's much better after waiting. It's not bad at all fresh, just slightly too hot. Give it a year to mellow out, and I promise you'll be glad you did.
