From a 650 ml bottle into a globe glass.

A-The pour is thick-looking. The brew is reddish with a deep amber, iron-wood color. The head is on the thin side and light tan in color. A few bubbles are visible. Some lacing on the glass.

S-This smells like a lumber mill...in a good way, with lots of fresh pine and herbal forest scents. I detect mint, and fruity booze, along with some burnt caramel, spice, and chocolate as it warms up. Nice and earthy.

T-The taste is also earthy, herbal, and heavy on the pine-forward hops, but there is less mint and more chocolate. The booze is very apparent, but not in a hot, stout like manner. Instead, you get an almost medicinal, brandy-like flavor of sweet, fruity booze.

M-Feel is medium to full body with a pine-heavy dankness to it. Carb is mild, alcohol is noticeable.

O-This is a unique and delicious beer. I have had regular Bastard on numerous occasions, but nothing prepared me for the pine-bomb that this beer let off. Sweet, fruity, and full of herbal, medicinal alcohol, this is definitely a big beer. I suggest pairing with spicy foods or drinking alone as a digestif-like after dinner drink.
