4.01/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Enjoy by January 13.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a frothy khaki head that lingers.

Pine, resin, and grapefruit are supported by sweet burnt sugar and toasted bread in the aroma. Pine dominates. Dark fruit notes of prunes and fig add intrigue.

Flavor begins with burnt breadcrust and deeply caramelized sugar, with underlying grapefruit pith, herbal tea, and pine, finishing fairly dry and bitter. Oak and resin linger in the aftertaste.

Body is a little full, with low carbonation and moderate alcohol warmth.

Interesting combination of flavors, thought the burnt character dominates and is slightly unpleasant.

damn good, this takes the edges off some of the other bastards in a really great way. its got a deep dark red color, richer looking than the others, with a full inch of thick off white head. it smells only a little oaky, not too much of that one in the blend i dont imagine. a good mix of the sweet red malt and the burnt sugar complex of the other ones, i also dont get an obnoxious amount of alcohol which i kind of do in double bastard. this is more refined, more nuanced, more interesting, and certainly more enjoyable to drink than even the classic bastard in my opinion. the caramel desserty flavors without all the sugars is the great success of this beer, and the layers of grain are also beautiful. a really full bodied brew, a tough bomber to drink alone, if you want to stay coherent at least, and a great long aftertaste. filling but no more than necessary. a good food beer too, this worked well with fresh pheasant stew. dont know if they made this more than once or not, but i would try it again. thanks a lot to drlovemd87 for hooking it up.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into standard (Stone) pint glass.

A: Dark amber hue. Pours a 1 finger, foamy, white head. Settle slowly. Constant foam blanket. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Heavy oak chips, molasses, honey, diacetyl all on a nice lightly roasted malt base.

T: Roasted malt, molasses, licorice, peat, pecan shells.

M: Thick, hearty, and roasty. Bittersweet finish. High alcohol apparent.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is good. Foamy head, consistent coverage, pervasive lacing. Nose is roasted malt grains, accentuated with oak, molasses, honey... well done. Malty with plenty of molasses and peat. Overall, this is a great quaff.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

From my tasting notes: The brew poured the signature bastard deep ruby amber color with an off white head that lukcily lingered. The aroma had the big malt and hoppy aroma you expect with a Bastard with more of the Arrogant tones showing through. The taste was great. It was all of the Bastards in one place giving their best flavor attributes while complementing the others with a great roasted nuttiness holding it all together. I detected more of the Arrogant flavors which held their own alongside the dominate Double while the thick syrupy mouthfeel and heavy body was definitely all Double. The Lucky Basartd was a great marriage of these fantastic Stone brews that created a Basartd of it’s own.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

22oz bottle poured into a snifter. Enjoy by date of January 31, 2013. I chose to hang onto it longer.

A: Murky red-brown color with tawny hues. Creamy sand-colored head stands at a finger and a half initially, but eventually settles. Lacing is spotty.

S: Bready, toasted crust. Hints of golden raisin. Pleasing oak backing, slight vanilla pull. Semi-assertive herbal and piney hops shifts into tropical citrus notes of lemon and tangerine.

T: Very smooth malt tastes of creamed cereal grains, toffee, and bread crust. hints of golden raisin. Seasoned oak owns the mid palate with a drying woody vanilla pull. Hops add a charge of resiny bitterness toward the end, but it's mellowed and smoothed into the rest of the flavor profile quite seamlessly. Playful citrus notes and a touch of marmalade toward the back end. Long finish of hop spice, drying wood, and bread crust.

M: The body thick and filling, but not weighty. It has a whipped airy quality that allows it to glide over the palate. Ridiculous smoothness. Low carbonation. Stellar.

O: I like Arrogant Bastard, I really like Oaked Arrogant Bastard, and I love Double Bastard. What happens when you blend the three? Somehow something even better than the sum of its parts emerges. This beer is the definition of smooth. The flavors blend together seamlessly, the balance is perfect, and it's heavenly in the mouth. This instantly became a favorite of mine.

4.06/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear medium to dark amber in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation at the surface of the beer and some copper highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense creamy and foamy dark beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pine/resin and citrus/grapefruit rind hops over the top of moderate aromas of caramel malt sweetness. There is a lighter aroma of oak as well.

T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of caramel malts with a very light amount of sweetness which is quickly overtaken by the strong hops flavors - pine/resin dominates with some more moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit rind. Light to moderate notes of oak with just a hint of vanilla as the beer warms. Strong amounts of lingering bitterness and light amounts of alcohol are in the finish.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with moderate to heavy amounts of dryness in the finish. Light amounts of alcohol warming are also present in the finish.

O: The idea of blending all of the different "bastard" ales from Stone is an interesting one and the resulting beer is certainly tough to classify as it is somewhere between an IPA/DIPA and Strong Ale/Old Ale. There is a fair amount of complexity to the flavors which when combined with the alcohol presence, makes this a beer that needs to be sipped slowly. This beer is quite bitter.

A: Reddish mahogany hue with a thick, solid 2-inch tan-colored head and good lacing

S: So much herbal, grassy, piney, and dank hops: man, this smells amazing--though there isn't much besides those hops going on here

T: More balanced in flavors--still the explosive hop flavors are there but the bitterness is balanced by a toasty, roasted caramel malt finish

F: So creamy and sticky and oily and full bodied

O: This is a fantastic beer; another great beer from Stone

3.79/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

This poured dark with a ruby hue. Some yeast like speckles on the initial pour but settles down clear. Ample off white head that dwindled slowly to a nice ring and cap. Excellent retention and good legs. Nose is inviting bitter hops, grapefruit with sweet malt underneath. Oaked presence off the nose and a little pine. Hops are softer on the nose than on the palate. Slick, resiny, long finish but slightly wet with a bitter aftertaste. Body is medium heavy, a touch imbalanced, and favors the sweet aspect of the malt and citrus despite the abundance of bitterness. It’s an agreeable contradiction though at 8.5 ABV.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Red amber that seemed to start hazy and clear up by the time I got to the bottom.

A- Pleasant sweetness with some alcohol standing right behind it. Light oakiness, caramel. Light hops, I aged this a bit.

T- Sweet with a complex bitter oak alcohol hit. Vanilla started coming through as the beer warmed.

M- Lighter side of heavy with moderate light carbonation. Seems very smooth and easy drinking, but at the same time quite thick.

D- This is a delicious beer and I had no idea what to expect. Not exactly sessionable, but a great beer to spend an evening on.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

L- Clear medium amber with a medium sized off white head, the head fades slowly to a ring and leaves a bit of spotty lace on the glass.

S- A wash of hops notes, floral/grassy/pine, and a backbone of caramel malt. There is a hint of vanilla in the background along with a bit of oak.

T- Hoppy right away, tempered with some caramel malt and a woody oak quality. Complex and flavorful taste, with a dry finish and a final hop note to close things out.

M- A bit less than medium, and the same in carbonation. The finish is mostly clean with just a little bit of hop oil left on the palate.

O- A truly great beer, the idea of blending the bastard beers together to create something completely new is an outstanding thought. Be cautious though the 8.5% ABV with show you what a bastard it can be the next day.

1 pint 6 ounce bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It is a deep copper color with some amber highlights. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head.

S - I notice some sweet caramel, toast, and some dark fruit. It is very reminiscent of a barleywine.

T - The taste has a lot more bitterness with some grapefruit being present. I am hard pressed to find the sweetness that the nose suggested.

M - Medium to full with moderate carbonation

O - This beer reminds me of a barleywine. I was surprised by the sweet smell, but the taste was more what I expected from Stone. I wish I would have had it fresh but still good.

Somehow I missed that this was part of the "enjoy by" series (Bottle says "Enjoy by Jan 31, 2013" so take this with a grain of salt). Oh well.
22oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Reddish amber color with a billowy, lingering one-finger head
S: Great malt/hop balance. A bit of toffee, a bit of resin
T: Complex, with notes of rye, toasted wheat, toffee, resin, citrus
M: Fairly full-bodied, a bit thick but complex & pleasant
O: This certainly doesn't seem at all old or off, but as good as it is it makes me want to try one out in date. Well done, Stone!

4.83/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bomber into a Columbus Brewing Company pint glass.

A - Reddish brown with a beige/tan 1.5cm head. The head dissipates relatively quickly, but average for an 8.5% ABV beer. A nice beer to look at that indicates complexity to come.

S - Booze/vanilla oak (american) heavy in the beginning and . I would say primarily a Centennial aroma that fights with the booze and oak to eventually gain a dominance, but only slightly. Brief moments of booze and oak still show through in the aroma.

T - You get a steady bitterness right away that is married nicely with the booze and oak, then they fall out of symmetry before returning to a nice balance. The complexity of the flavors and how they start of in harmony, then each have their own moment, and then end in harmony again.

M - This is a rich, full beer on the palate in every way, including the mouthfeel. The beer is full and silky, with a nice resiny oil and residual sugar coating the palate after the sip is gone.

O - A great beer with a lot of complexity to it. It takes the 3 Arrogant Bastard Series beers and really melds them into something greater than any of the originals.

This is one of my favorite beers and I have to admit, I was sad to see this was my last bottle of the second release. I aged one 9 months and didn't think it was worth it. It was better in the first few months.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: An interesting mix of caramel malts, citrusy hops, pine resin hops and oak is present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the hops are more prominent and lend a moderate to strong amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish (especially the piney hops). Hints of alcohol and vanilla are also noticeable. Once the beer warms up, the vanilla flavors become stronger.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied, crisp and very dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Some alcohol heat is perceptible.
O: This beer is like smelling salts in that tasting the hop bitterness will definitely wake you up, but there's an interesting enough mix of flavors to make it something you can sip and savor. It definitely tastes like a hybrid between an imperial IPA and a strong ale.

Hazy deep amber, just over one finger of off white head, good lace on the glass also. Smell is piney and quite hoppy, citrus with lots of orange flavour, malt, caramel with a faint bit of vanilla and oak. Taste is a mix of caramel, malt and hops, lots of pine and citrus, fairly bitter throughout, oak-vanilla, toasted in the finish, mildly sweet but drying mid palate, hoppy aftertaste. Medium carbonation, perhaps a touch high, medium body, decent feel. Quite a nice beer, very drinkable but I think of all the bastards I would go with straight up Arrogant Bastard as my favourite but I would certainly drink this again.

22 oz bottle into a large Tripel Karmeliet tulip snifter

A - Very healthy two finger light khaki (near white) head. Nice dark ruby beer, glows beautifully when held up to the light. Was surprised by the amount of sediment, but just pour carefully. I'm not always a fan of the Stone bottle rants... but I like this one. "Best after 1.31.13" strikes me as possibly being part of the joke... But who knows. Guess this bastard is two weeks late...

S - American hops (citrus, resin, grass), caremelly malt, light toasted oak presence.

T - Wicked and complex blend of spicy hops, light smoke, very tasty amber malt presence. Nice lingering aftertaste of oak and grassy hops. I see others noting peat - that makes sense.

M - Perhaps a little watery in the body, but, overall, a nice sudsy wash. Aftertaste buzzes with hop bitterness.

O - Very drinkable, complex American Strong Ale with pronounced hop and oak character. Not for the weak of heart, but downright magic in the hands of the right lucky bastard... Even two weeks late...

The Lukcy Bastard is a big beer and reminded me of a good scotch ale. The beer poured a deep rich amber with thin white head that left some lacing. The smell was mostly malt with some sweet undertones. The taste was heavy with malt that included earth/peat with caramel hints and alcohol. The mouthfeel was full body with smooth carbonation. Overall it was a good beer....certainly could not session this one.

Pour is thick with a lingering 1/2 inch head - does the souffle thing. Scent is surprisingly malty with just a hint (barely) of oak.

Taste is more like the Bastard you expect. Haven't had the Double so I'm not sure how strong of a presence it makes. Good pine flavor, decent resin/malt backbone, oak on the aftertaste (not too strong when cold but much heavier as it warms).

Not a common feature of Stone for me but this gets better as it warms. Doesn't hold a candle to Ruination but the oak makes this better than your average Bastard. This beer loses what it gains by the oak with the idiotic label. If you get past the first paragraph without a headache you're the better man.

A Pours an amber color topped off with a white head.

S Lots of tropical fruit and citrus with lots of grapefruit like bitterness coming out.

T A lot of sweet tropical fruit and citrus with just a bit of bitterness and bready malt.

M a bit of a heavy body

Overall a pretty good take on Arrogant bastard family of beers. The tropical and citrus notes really set it apart from the others.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a perfect pint. Enjoy by Jan 31, 2013, so I just barely made it.

3.5 A: Clear copper amber color. Two and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is decent and a diffuse lattice of foamy lacing is left.

3.5 S: Surprisingly hoppy, this takes on a lot of the double bastard. Hop aroma is a mix of floral foremost with pine, herbal and earthy following behind. Caramel and toasty maltiness with notes of toffee and dark fruits - raisin and dates.

3.5 T: Taste is like the nose. Piney and floral hop flavor. Caramel, toffee, toastiness, and neutral malt maltiness. Dark fruits.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and quite smooth.

3.5 D: This is good, but nearly every thing Stone offers has been eclipsed hundreds of times since craft beer started going more mainstream and showing up everywhere.

a clean dark copper pour with 2 fingers of yellowish head which left behind lots of nice lacing. aroma of sweet caramel, raisins, dates, a subtle smokiness, earthy bitter smelling hops. the flavor is complex as all hell. a delicious arrangement of sweet malts showcase the hell out of this beer, blend in some burnt tire bitterness from the hops, a subtle smoked flavor, a little bit of a wood profile, cherries, roasted grains.. holy crap this beer is all over but somehow works, and works damn well. medium body on the heavy side with a moderate amount of carbonation and a nice creamy feel to it overall.

this is an excellent beer. after all these years, the bastard is still excellent, and this is a great edition of it.

22oz bottle with a drink by date of 01/31/13

Ruby red and brilliantly clear. Dense off-white head that lingers nicely.

The nose has plenty of pine and i'm not sure if I have started to get used to this smell or if it dissipates quickly but I lose some pine after just couple minutes.

Medium body with a smooth character overall. Huge background bitterness and just a touch of vanilla. Maybe some oak but I am stretching here. Very carbonated and it finishes very dry. Still that lingering piney bite on the tongue.

It doesn't take long for one's tastebuds to be beaten into submission. Medium caramel throughout. White grapefruit is probably the big citrusy note I get from the hops.

Delicious and well worth the price.

Pours a rich brownish copper with a huge billowing head which persists and causes some of the sexiest lacing known to man

Smell is very hop forward, citrus, pine, and gin/juniper.

Taste is a bit maltier than the nose would lead on. Caramel, sourdough bread, grapefruit. Oak aspect very muted. Really wouldn't pick up on it if I wasn't looking for it.

Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than anticipated. Sturdy carbonation prickles the tongue similarly to the hop bite.

Overall a fantastic beer. A bit muddled as to what the intention is, otherwise would rate higher.

My bottle had a best by date of January 2013. I cracked it open in December, 2012.

This pours a wonderfully rich amber with a thick head of foam. The foam loiters more than lingers, hanging out after the first few sips even. There’s a light aroma. It’s piney, with hints of orange peel and a whisper of cinnamon tea hiding somewhere. It’s not a vibrant, big aroma but nicely layered.

The flavor has a mellow rounded bitterness with a piney, resiny heft to the body with a dry tacky finish. It’s malty and smooth with a big bitterness like its siblings only without the sharp edges. I’m not worthy!

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 1/31/2013. Pours slightly hazy red amber color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, floral, grass, orange rind, toast, caramel, oak, pine, bread, and herbal earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop/malt notes. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, toast, tangerine, citrus rind, caramel, pine, floral, grass, bread, oak, and herbal earthiness. Good amount of citrus piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, floral, pine, caramel, toast, grass, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Excellent flavor complexity of hop flavors with a nice malt balance; and minimal cloying bitterness present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with and fairly creamy and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very excellent American strong ale. Great hop complexity and balance of malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
