Fresh growler from Stone on Super Bowl Sunday.
A - Deep amber with off white "dirty" looking head. Slightly foamy with plenty of lacing.
S - Tons of hops dominate with the malt profile you know from regular Bastard. Maybe a distant hint of oak but mainly amber malts and tons of hops.
T - I like this blend as it has so much complexity without one thing dominating. Hops are clearly the dominate flavour, though they are well balanced with the maltiness from Double B etc.
M - Fairly full bodied at the start with a little alcohol thinness coming thru at the end.
D - This is a wonderful blended beer with ample dry hops and a solid malt profile. While I wouldn't drink a whole growler to the dome this is a nice one to have in the mix. In all honesty it is the best Bastard of the lot.
Serving type: growler

3.81/5 rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.
Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.
Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.
Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.
Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
