Beer review number 666! It may as well be from Stone.
At this moment I'm feeling like a Lukcy Basartd right now sitting and drinking this beer.
Looks and smells quite a bit like Arrogant Bastard- deep mahagony color with a tan head that laces the glass as the liquid depletes. Toffee, caramel and tea scents to go along with some herbal notes.
The initial hop bite is really, really good. A bright lemon citrus that I really enjoy gives way to a more bitter, grapefruit character that settles into a resinous pine. An ipa preemptive strike with a strong ale aramada following close behind. Sweetened black tea notes along with some more toffee.
It makes me think of Arrogant Bastard with the volume turned up a bit, but not quite turning into Double Bastard. Fans of those two will be happy with this fellow.
I appreciate the effort it took to write the text on the bottle and the relative ease of reading it. A very worthy brew for my 666th review.

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.
