22 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber color with a rich cream colored head. Aroma is of banannas, caramel, floral and citrus. Taste is strong with the hops throughout, but carrying a sugary undertone throughout, with a hint of roasted malt in the long finish. Full bodied, with a thick texture.

2009 vintage. Served in globe glass.

Aroma- very lacking. cookies, bready, lots of caramel. toasty. subtle alc. very little hop aroma. where is the arrogant bastard times two?

App- clear red. tan foam breaks down. no lacing.

Taste- sweet caramel, cloying. some chocolate, raisin, citrus resin. piney and grapefruit. bready, burnt malt flavor. hops and malt clash. strong character, nothing new from stone but not well done.

Mouth- sweet, resin, lingering bitterness. med high carb.

Overall- gets better as it warms. good job from stone but not any better than expected. where is the AB character?

On tap at the Ginger Man in Fort Worth. Paid $6.75 for a pint. Unsure of abv.

A-Pours a dark brown with lots of reddish hue. It has a two finger tan head that has some awesome staying power. There is some nice lacing left in between sips.

S-Starts out with a lot of apple aroma. Citrus hops and pine also jump out. There is also some sweetness to this one.

T-The apple that was so strong in the nose is also very upfront in the mouth. Sweet malt, brown sugar, citrus, banana, raw pine, and some roast malt all are evident. There is a little bit of booze as it goes down. It ends with a nice bitterness.

M-Thicker bodied with a smooth carbonation level.

D-It tastes big. A great beer full of flavor and complexity.

I had never had this on tap and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was the perfect cold weather beer. Well worth seeking it out.

2009 Vintage

A: Pours a murky red-brown with more foamy lacing than any other beer I've ever seen. Sweet cascading effect (similar to Guinness) when poured.

S: Sweet malt and hops, pear, citrus, and grapefruit. Smells a bit like an IPA, but with a much stronger malt profile.

T: The best way I can think to describe this is a cross between a Belgian Strong Dark Ale and an IPA. Some malts up front give way to a slew of sweeter flavors: dark fruits, pine, grapefruit. Sweetness gives way to a potent, bitter hop finish. Booze is also very apparent throughout. This is a very unique flavor that achieves pretty good balance between some unique elements. I think after this ages a year or two it will be even better.

M: Medium body, boozy and warm.

D: This is a pretty unique brew in my opinion. Lots of interesting flavors that balance out pretty well with each other. Even though I feel this is more of a sipper, drinkability is pretty good for the style and amount of alcohol that is readily apparent. I think with a year or two of age this one will be even better than it already is.

2009 release. Comes in the usual Stone bottle with a bunch of hogwash on the back. Served around 50.

Pours into my American pint glass with a dark brownish red with a short lived white head that leaves some lacing.

Smell is like floral hop candy. Hints of sugary caramel blend with some doughy, bready malts. The hops are very floral and perfumey. There is some fruitiness in there too.

Taste is huge with smooth malts and good bittering hops. Theres so much going on with each, the malts are slightly chocolaty and roasty, sweet, and a bit caramally, the hops are nice and bitter with a touch of pine. The alcohol is more prevalent as you go.

The mouthfeel is decadent and the drinkability amazing the style.

Overall this is a big beer that is worth challenging, because it is highly drinkable and smooth, not an alcohol bomb like it could have been.

Split a 22 oz bottle two ways, in stemless wine glass.

Ar: Pine resin, toasty malt, vegetative hops, alcohol, mild aroma, citrus peel, crisp dry malt, grassy, doughy, alcohol and sweetness increase with warmth.

Ap: Clear beautiful red, off white low head, good retention

F: Alcohol, candy sweetness, caramel, mild fresh hop, slightly vegetative, pleasant resin, hot alcohol, tastes like a fresh hop barleywine, nice maltiness, rich caramel, rather sweet, pine, almost cloying, raisin, malt and hops clash

M: Hot alcohol, medium carbonation, light lingering vegetative bitterness, full/medium mouthfeel, sweetness is a bit overpowering

O: Better than old guardian, but i was expecting more hop character, arrogant bastard tastes hoppier, better as warms, very barleywine-like.

Decided to give this one a go for my first review, as it is a big favorite of mine.

2009 Release, poured into a snifter.

Looks to be a hazy, reddish-orange hue. Decent head, that leaves a little lacing.

The smell is very citrusy, a little piney, but there is a bit of maltiness.

Taste is just amazing, very strong on the hops, it is a mix of pine cone and grapefruit. It is also very sweet with a bit of malt. The taste of hops does linger in a great way. Can tell it is a high ABV, but it isn't unbalanced at all.

It is very smooth, and well balanced on the alcohol end.

I do love this beer, especially when fresh. It is not a beer you can have more than one of, and that one must be drank slowly.

Overall I do love this beer and highly recommend it to everyone.

I bought this from Trenton Road Takeout. The'09 stock. Poured into a snifter.Pours a deep hazy amber with some ruby highlight's.Very thick retention in the heading. Left lacing globs all throughout the tasting.

Smell is malty at first with a heavy alcohol aroma. Hop is there but seems to not compare up to the warming alchol malty aroma's.

Taste is amazing. Very malty with an apple taste that is replaced by a brief visit of warming booze.Replaced by an insane piney,citrus,grassy,floral taste. Doesn't leave a crazy linger of hop but leaves foaming at the mouth for more.

Mouth is super smooth and a nice bitterness that tingles the teeth. Very nice carbonation in the mouth that tingles all the way down to the belly.Full bodied and did I mention super smooth.

I wasn't to sure how much of this I could handle when I took the first whiff. Seemed a little to boozey but suprisingly it wasn't at all.Very drinkable for a high ABV.

An absolute must try for everyone.

Drinking my second 2009 Double Bastard by Stone, served in a pint glass.

Appearance - A deep beautiful amber hints of orange and mahogany. Light foam and light lacing.

Smell - Deep fruity and sweet smell with tones of alcohol and the typical stone character (from hops, yeast, and high alcohol?)

Taste - Extremely sweet and relatively high alcohol bite. Hop character is relatively strong but surprisingly subtle for a stone's double bastard. There is a sweet caramel undertone.

Mouthfeel - Very sweet with solid carbonation. Mouth feels dry afterwards most likely to high hop content.

Drinkability - I love stone beers and this one is generally well brewed but I think they could do better. The hops aren't as aggresive as expected for a beer of this caliber and the sweetness is overwhelming. Tastes similar to lagunitas brews (which I love) in my opinion. Essentially a great beer that could be improved.

2009 Vintage

Pours a dark beautiful amber color with a perfect amount of head and some patchy lacing.

Smell is mostly caramel malt with an odd bubblegum aroma that is very faint.

Taste is hot and malty, slight burnt bitterness in the aftertaste, way too much heat from this, needs a bit of age on it.

pours deep brown with a tan fluffy head, and good lacing.

smells wonderful. citrusy (grapefruit) hops with a slight vanilla scent and maybe a lemony finish.

the taste is bitter, lots of piney/floral hops and caramel malts. finishes BITTER.

mouthfeel is creamy with low carbonation, nice.

drinkable but can be very hard on the pallet.

nice beer but not too many.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - pours into a murky mass of malt and lupilin, which glows a deep purple-amber in the light

S - rich malt, reminiscent of a decoction mash (but most likely not), notes of coffee, carmel, and a little chocolate, overall hop armoa is very subdued with all the malt, yum...

T - initial burst of butterscotch and carmel sweet falling into the hop bitterness which slowly rotates to hop flavor in the finish

M - rich, with a zesty quality from the high alcohol level

D - very, what's not to love? it's got a lot of hops and a lot of malt, both balanced together, it's luxury for the palate.

The best part of living near and working in Escondido, California is Stone Brewery. Not only is the beer great, but they have a full service restaurant with equivalent tasting food.

I have been to the brewery, done the tour and have tried all of the various Stone brews except Double Bastard. Up to this point, Arrogant Bastard was my favorite. Not any more.

By far, the Double Bastard is the best.

When I opened the 22 oz. bomber, I could smell the complex mixture of hops and malt. I detected overtones of pine and grapefruit. I poured the beer into a standard 20 oz. beer glass and watched as the magical stream filled to the top.

This beer has ruined me for ordinary, proletariat weak yellow beer made by the billions of gallons for the yearning masses. [not that AB hadn't already done that!].

There's no going back. But there is going forward. I think I will go out to the Stone Brewery this weekend and try this on tap!

Pours a deep reddish brown into a large wine glass from a 22 oz. bomber. An inch of frothy light tan head sticks to the top of the pour and yields a fair amount of lacing, not at all unlike the regular bastard. Retention is a bit brief in comparison, a likely byproduct of the ABV.

Caramel and toffee on the nose with some muddled piney hops. Notably more depth on the nose and with a bit of a barleywine sense given the malt structure and alcohol volatiles.

Flavor is richer as well. Sweet and lightly viscous yet quite flavorful and never syrupy. More caramel and spice though not quite as coarse on the palate as the 'single' bastard given the additional malt. Some light chocolate and cherry liqueur after some air. This beer can warm up nicely without any negative effects, and develops a slightly warming nature to the finish as it does so, not unlike some brandy without the bite.

An interesting brew, richer and more robust than regular AB and without the occasional 'dead spot', yet in exchange the hop notes can be scuttled beneath the malts at times. Still robustly hoppy through the foam of a fresh pour nonetheless. A fair and equitable exchange per se. Equally enjoyable given the mood though likely better served in 12 oz. bottles given the potent. A style bender for sure.

Poured into Sierra Nevada Hop Tulip glass. Pours a cherry red/brown. Head has wonderful stamina and leaves a few spots of lace behind. Attractive bastard, looks like a barleywine. Aroma is a blast of sugary malts and hops, brown sugar and fruit. Caramel and oranges. Hints of some alcohol.

Flavor delivers on the promise of the nose and expands upon it. Caramel and brown sugar, cherries and oranges, bitter pith. The hops on this is pretty expansive, if it was not for the sugary malt this would wreck the mouth with bitter hops. Fruity, sugary, hoppy blend into a mean wicked s.o.b. of a brew. I've drank a good deal of this over the last 2 years (since Stone came to WI). Outside of Ruination, this is the one that does it for me. Finish is surprisingly dry for such a malty beer. Is it really surprising given the ridiculous amount of hops crammed in this bomber? I suppose not, but it is quite welcome.

Mouthfeel is pretty full, chewy. Well-carbonated. Drinkable? Well, kinda. The heat, while mild, reminds of the 10.5% abv. That said, 22oz. goes down pretty easy. This is the Stone beer that just gets me going. I'm not the biggest fan of AB, unless it's on tap. This one however is one Bad MoFo.

From the bomber into a snifter.

A- Pours like syrup, both in color and viscosity. Its a deep shade of ruby. Very little head and no retention. This looks like a glass of brandy.

S- Piney and oily smelling hops over top some sweet malts, caramel and cherry fruitiness.

T- Big strong caramel malts, cherry and hops on the finish. Some alcohol and pine linger around.

M- Full bodied, thick and syrupy. Nice and smooth. It really helps these big bold flavors go down. Its warming and delightful.

D- Really nice. I feel like sipping this all night.

Draught poured into a pint glass at Shady McGrady's in Harrisburg

A-dark amber color, hazy in clarity, light khaki head

S-sweet caramel malt nose with a piney hop resign note

T-big and bold with all its flavors, caramel malt in there, pine resign flavors, some citrus and bitter hops towards the finish

M-slightly syrupy, smooth and full body with a nice warming from the alcohol

D-so much flavor that I love to drink it. As long as it has big flavor I give it 2 thumbs up. Can't drink a lot bc I'd black out...again. I would drink it until I woke up not knowing I stopped!

***
Trying a 2004 Bottle, today's date is 3/27/2010. Probably past its prime but lets see what happens.

A-pours a hazy ruby red colored beer with hues of orange shining through. the head is a light tan, almost just off white. no retention but a good lace is left on the glass

S-the nose is still pretty big and comes through with big time sweet malts. tons of caramel and brown sugar. Some dark fruits, raisin and prunes, with notes of rum.

T-hmmm, the booze is actually still slightly present but much more mellow and doesn't bring any of the heat. very sweet, big time caramel, pine, lots of carmalized brown sugar. The back has some dark fruits, prunes and raisins, notes of rum. A touch of chocolate and toffee. There is still a hop presence in the back bringing a light citric taste and touch of bitterness.

M-so syrupy, this is thick and coats the mouth. the carbonation is extremely low but still present after all these years. smooth on the palate.

Notes-put it up next to an 09 and there is virtually no difference. I think the malt may have added some very faint notes of chocolate; but honestly I don't think I could pick out which was which.

I was surprised to see that I had never reviewed double bastard when having it fresh (i reviewed the 2005 last year from the brewery, but not the 2008). anyways, here goes:

This is beautiful and unique looking beer. Different lighting produces anything from dark brown to bright orange, and at all ends of the spectrum it looks great. it's murky and difficult to see through, except when directly backlit. the head is an off-white-nearly-tan color that compliments the body and laces the glass nicely. This one smells much better when it has a little age on it, but nevertheless it smells great fresh. hops and alcohol dominate here, though the malty goodness that shines as the beer matures is already apparent. a nice combination of dark and citrus fruitiness.

The flavor is, of course, the best part of the beer. if i were to classify this beer i would call it an old ale or a barleywine. it is overly-hopped for either style (something which of course changes over time), but, unlike most other overly-hopped old ales and barleywines, it doesn't matter here. The hops are most pronounced in the finsh and grapefruit-like bitter aftertaste. up front there is a deluge of sweet dark fruitiness (figs, red grapes, prunes) that evolves into a roasty(?) and sweet (brown sugar) maltiness that makes the transition to overwhelming hops nearly seamless. this is a very complex beer that is just so fucking good all the way around.

The mouthfeel is thick, but perhaps over-carbonated in its youth. this progresses favorably as time goes on. drinkability is nothing other than constantly reaching for more.

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a Macado's Halloween-branded American pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy dark brown color with a tight fizzy head that has a strange kind of egg-white color to it. The head doesn't really dissipate and leaves nice lacing.

Smell: Definitely hoppy. Also has strong aromas of grapefruit and pine.

Taste: Hoppy as all hell. Has grapefruit and other fruity notes as well in the taste. Has malty sweetness but not so much as to overpower the hops. Seems strangely balanced despite the fact that it's hopped out the ass. You can also really taste the alcohol in this one. Leaves a bitter kind of piney aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and smooth as can be. Has a nice carbonation bite to it as well.

Drinkability: A great beer! If you haven't tried this, do whatever you can to find it. Arrogant Bastard is great but Double Bastard is awesome! Hoppy enough for hopheads but surprisingly drinkable enough for the rest of us. Get it at whatever cost!

2008 release poured from 22oz bottle into Macado's "Halloween 2009" branded American pint glass.

Appearance: Dark and hazy caramel/amber color with a small brown head that stays for a long time and leaves behind substantial lacing.

Smell: Grapefruit over sweet, buttery malt aromas and floral hops. Also has a hint of sweet tea.

Taste: Bitter all the way- starts toasty and a bit buttery, finishing with a powerful, yet balanced, earthy and herbal bitterness. Notes of sour alcohol and a lingering bitter aftertaste. Hints of sweet tea and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel: Heavy and chewy body with a slight, natural carbonation hint. Dryer finish with warming alcohol. Oh so smooth.

Drinkability: What can I say- this beer is outstanding. The best I've had. Simply the greatest. There is none better.

Wow.

Served from a 22oz. bottle (2009 vintage) purchased at the Perfect Pour in Columbia, MD into my new Double Bastard glass at around 50 degrees (11/17/09).

A: Pours a murky chestnut brown with one finger of an off-white head which disappears rather quickly leaving little lacing.

S: An intense bouquet of sweet malt, piney hops, molasses, toffee, and a pleasant sweet alcohol.

T: The palate is truly assaulted with sweet malt, molasses, piney hops, and alcohol. Very harsh yet quite pleasant, but a little rough around the edges.

M: Full-bodied with nice carbonation and an almost buttery mouthfeel with a dry, bitter finish.

D: Drinkability is good, but that is only because this is such a flavorful beer that fully exercises the palate.

Overall this is such an extreme beer that it needs to be tried by any fan of beer with intense and rich flavor. Let's see what some age does to it. Recommended.

Stone is celebrating 10 years of the Double Bastard and I was fortunate enough to have the current vintage (2009) on draft at a local beer bar. Much appreciated treat for myself.

Beer was clear and brown. Formed a thin white head (slightly yellowish bubbles) and has low carbonation. Lacing is high, its an attractive beer.

The aroma is primarily hops and malt. There is some detectable alcohol in the nose, but its not solvent-like at all.

Beer is surprisingly smooth, really high bitterness at the back of the mouth, a little (less than I expected) sweetness at the front. Sweetness in the front is primarily malt based syrup flavor. Its good. There is some alcohol in the midpalate but its not bad and is well balanced by the high hop bitterness in the back. Drinkability is fine, not high, couldn't pound this beer, Mouthfeel is good, nice connectivity throughout the beer, good body, not thin or too thick. Beer gets a little dry after a few drinks but that's OK. A really nice beer.

Whenever I drink a beer like this I wonder how it will age. This is one of those strong ales that I bet would get sweeter with time as the hops fell back and the alcohol warmness mellowed.

Had this on-tap several times this past week at Spike's in SLO ("Most Arrogant Bar in the Country" week). Review written Friday night.

Served in a Delirium Tremens snifter.

Appearance: A number of autumn colors (orange, red, brown, etc.) make up the color of the body. Not a whole lot of clarity; very murky. A bubbly, frothy, off-white head sits on top for the entire session and produces some fantastic lacing. Looks like a beast - scary even.

Smell: Molasses, piney hops, and alcohol. Butter and soft spices peak through as well. Pretty malty on the whole with a strong alcoholic presence.

Taste: Butter, toffee, molasses, piney hops, and alcohol. Very bitter and hot. Rough, but equally delicious. Awesome!

Mouthfeel: Dry and warm but very creamy. Alcohol/hops give the beer a peppery kick, but the carbonation adds a beautiful velvety character. Heavy, a touch syrupy.

Drinkability: True to it's name, this beer is extremely arrogant. The bitterness and alcohol are upfront and unapologetic. To quote Terrell Owens, "Don't hate me, cause you love me."
