3.98/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter...very very excited to try this.

A - pours with a 2 finger head...slightly off-white color. nice lacing on the side of the glass as the head fades away. looks like all the other bastards--a very rich, red/ruby color. head always been a fan of how the entire series of beers looks. I am extremely excited to try this beer.
S - delicious. the most recent bastard I've drank is the double, so the smell comes off as slightly weaker than it (as to be expected). I smell some nice subtle piney hops with a ever-so-slight oak background. smells sweet...very inviting aroma but the aroma seems a little weak to me

T - Amazing. Immediate hops and sweetness (but a little subdued for a bastard), malt, wood, and then back to the sweetness and then back to the hops for the aftertaste! I like it a lot..you can definitely tell it is a blend of the bastards (although the last time I had an oaked-bastard is a long time ago...) It is a great beer but I think it fell a little short of my (extremely) high expectations

M - nothing special. good amount of carbonation. medium body. dry. not a bad mouthfeel, but nothing noteworthy...very crisp beer.

O - I enjoy this beer very much. Wondering if it will age well. It doesn't have the bite of the double bastard but I think is a step above the regular bastard. It is a great beer and well-worth seeking out. Might just have to pick up a few more.

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.
