3.68/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

22 oz silk screened bottle, poured into a Karmeliet tulip. A gentle pour produces a thick, custard colored head, The consistency of the foam is creamy and milky. Lacing is gorgeous, very delicate bubbles slide across the glass. The body color is the same as the brown bottle glass.

Smell is a harsh and aggressive pine hops with some alcohol back burn. There is a woody resin aroma in there around the edges. This is kind of pungeant. The taste is equally aggressive, but at least there is an attempt at balance from the caramel malts. There is just a hint of vanilla. But over all it is like fresh pine and spruce needles. It is sharp and biting. Even though it is only 8.5% ABV, there is a deffinate alcohol rub.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of active carbonation. The body itself is smooth where flavors are harsh. That creates an interesting contrast. Stone is not afraid to challenge their drinkers, and that is why so many craft beer fans love them. I have had all three of the base beers for Lukcy Basartd in the past. Blended together, I feel that the Double Bastard is the dominant beer. Since Lukcy Basartd is a one shot anniversary beer, I doubt it will be part of the Missouri launch. However I do anticipate picking up the other Bastards.

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.
