I tried this when it first came out and was impressed enough to buy another but not overwhelmed. Didn't review it. Forgot about it. Until now.
What a difference the second time around! This beer is not for aging but the lying around in the beer fridge didn't hurt it one bit.
Poured into my 21st Amendment chalice.
A - Dark cherry/amber. Beautiful lace. A gorgeous beer.
S - A good prelude to what's to come. Caramel dominates.
T - Caramel with piny hop undertones (some smoke?) offer exceptional tasting experience. Close to a 5 but not quite. Going with 4.5.
M - This beer is so much fun. There is absolutely nothing lacking in the feeling left behind from each taste. Caramel and pine left behind make this a thoroughly enjoyable beer.
O - 'nuf said already. I don't suppose this beer is still available. If I do happen to see one, it will be mine.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Let me start off by saying that this beer brought me back to why I first sarted loving Stone in the first place. It poured a nice murky brown hue that had some copper highlights and a nice tan head that left some very nice sheets of lace down on the glass.

The smell was very enticing with both malts and hops being represented very well. Toasted breand and caramel take care of the malt aromas while pine and grass, with a slight hint of grapefruit make up the hop smells.

Taste is a sweet caramel and bready flavor upfront followed by the roasted malts, and the pine and tropical fruit flavors make up for the dry bitter finish. Very tasty and the lingering aftertaste makes you want to take sip after sip.

Mouthfeel is super creamy and smooth. This is a great blend and all the flavors of Bastards that I fell in love with are represented. The smoothness of Oaked, the warming alcohol of Double, and the sharp aggressiveness of the Original AB all unite to make one of the most if not perfect beer from Stone Brewing I have ever tasted. I wish I had a whole case of this.

A: Gentle pour yields 1/4 finger of tan head with good retention. Clear burgundy liquid. Nice

S: Nice juicy crisp hops and tropical fruit. Slight toffee, subdued but pronounced Man Candy.

T: Burnt roast, fish oil, all Bastard, cacophonous. Not as dominant as I remember Bastards being, semi-subdued in fact. Delicious and balanced. Great guava and papaya, sweet as well. Where's the alcohol?

M: Gentle, balanced, mellow but bitter. No heat.

D: Very nice. I want another and will buy again. This blend of the three is better than any of them alone. One of the best I've had from Stone.

I'm a lucky bastard to have a good buddy who gave me this bottle.

The bottle itself is super awesome and worth keeping. The beer looks like a blend of Arrogant (Double) Bastard and Old Guardian. It is clear, ruddy brown and looks syrupy. The smell is more sweet and malty than regular Bastard. The taste is super duper awesome! I have no idea whether this particular brew was supposed to benefit from aging, but it may well have. The balance of sweet, caramel malt and herbal hops is perfect for my palate. I expected the beer to have more alcohol heat, but it doesn't at all. The taste is hops up front, then lingering brown sugar and bread. I really love it.

From one lukcy basartd to all others, for such are we who are worthy. Thank Stone for the gargoyles.

"Oepn yuor mnid. Use a craobwr if you msut." - From the label. Reminds me of Morpheus to Neo in The Matrix: "Free your mind." This is definitely a beer best enjoyed after choosing the red pill - no illusions about this strngo ael.

Got this at Whole Foods in Bend, Oregon in April. Tonight seemed right - it's a feeling thing. Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a clear pint glass. Paid $6.99.

A-poured a hazy copper-medium amber with a two-finger, rich creamy head with ample lacing.

S-Rich, sweet malt aroma with a floral hop bouquet. Very pleasant array of aromas from orchard fruits to toffee sweetness. Nice blend of malts and citrus hops.

T-Like somewhere between an ordinary barleywine and a double IPA. It's very good, and close to great. Definite sweet malts reminiscent of dark dried fruits like dates and raisins. Hop bitterness is very nicely balanced, and predominantly grapefruit noted.

M-This has got to be the smoothest 8.5% ABV beer I have ever enjoyed. Drinks like a session beer, except it will kick your hind-pots. Perfectly balanced and carbonated. Not even the faintest hint of alcohol - dangerously smooth.

O-I enjoyed this very much and regret I have no more. No banal beer, this one. Hats off Stone. Just might be the best bastard of 'em all.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

On tap again at Uptown Brothers in Denver. Served in a schooner glass and was a red copper color with very good head retention. Absolutely loved the aroma with very vivid citrusy hop tones with a slighthint of vanilla and oak. Flavor upfront was again the citrus hops followed by some serious malt character. Not overly bitter or sweet, very good balance.

Very good beer. I plan on stocking up with a few bombers.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: The pour looked like a fresh bottle of double bastard. Deep ruby color with a finger and a half of white head. Some nice lacing as well.

S: The nose is pure dank hops. Really pungent. The best part of this beer. You got a touch of the oak but not much. It was a nice subtle touch. Little bit of booze and some malt creeping through.

T: The taste was nice and complex. Oaked bastard IMO is not that great and way to expensive but in this blend it really worked out nicely. It was hoppy and boozy and everything you would expect from this beer. It also had a nice dept of flavor.

M: Carbonation was sharp but not overwhelming. The body was slightly on the thick side of medium.

D: I really enjoyed this beer quite a bit. I love DB but could leave the others and this was a nice compromise between the best of all three. Not to be cellared this needs to be consumed ASAP.

22oz bottle at about cellar temp split with a friend poured into a nonik pint.

pours out a huge billowy off white head, had to wait for it to settle a few minutes before finishing the pour. amazing looking cap. dark ruby red body with a touch of sediment. lots of lace and great retention.

aroma is full of freshly picked whole flower hops. also some pellet hops, lots of pine, citrus, perfumey, tons of resin. malts take a back seat, but the hops smell amazing.

great tasting hops, much better balance than the aroma would suggest, still very hop forward though. fresh, piney, citrusy, perfumy hops balanced by a sweet caramel malt backbone.

so smooth, great feeling carbonation, nothing overdone. hops are felt on the palate after each sip.

abv is not noticable at all, drinks so easy. IMO this is one of the better ones from the bastard series, highly recommended. i definatly be picking up some more real soon.

S- Grapefruit and pine hops, dark fruits, oak, and caramel. Can really smell all three Bastards in it, just amazing and screams drink me!!

T- Nice hoppy bitter flavor, oak, dark fruits, a little bit of alcohol in the flavor. All three Bastards blend together very well.

M- Smooth, nice medium body.

D- Very enjoyable and easy to drink. I would like to see how it taste with a little bit of age on it because the alcohol a little hot right now. If you enjoy the Bastards this is a must try!!

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 6oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 9.2% and there is no date.

Appearance: From the pour I got a tall tan head on top of a deep crimson red body. The head is long lasting and makes lots of lacing on the glass.

Smell: There are deep bitter herbal and resin like pine hop notes over a sweet lightly toasted and caramel like maltiness.

Taste/Palate: The flavor has a deep hop character with resin like pine notes along with some herbal and bitter orange oily notes. This all sets up on a sweet brown sugary and toffee like malty backbone. It also has a very slight hint of earthy woody oak. This adds another nice layer of subtle complexity. The finish has a pleasant hop bitter linger that just hangs on long enough to be interesting and note over stay its welcome. On the palate the mouth feel is medium to full with a slightly oily yet sticky feel and the carbonation is soft but still active.

Notes: To start with all the beers that were blended here are excellent on there own. Blended together they work well with each other and other a new excellent and complex beer.

Okay, that was one of the most difficult labels to read...EVER! A spell-checkers nightmare! That aside, though, the beer is fantastic. The scent of piny, resiny hops and intense malt hit you immediately, and from from a distance. It's a complex smell, lots of wood scents, citrus (grapefruit), and alcohol. Toasted, roasted scents and a little distant pepper. Great! The taste is equally intense...bitter, but balanced. Aggressive hops, semi-sweet, lots of malt (especially prominent in the hind-taste). Decent carbonation and a pronounced warming. The beer is incredibly drinkable. Wow!

I love me some Bastard no matter how it's spelled! 2013 version, best by Jan. 31, 2013. From a 22oz bottle into my favorite snifter.

Pours a beautiful clear garnet. About two finger of khaki foam, nice tight bubbles, really solid retention with some fine lacing and alcohol legs.

Hoppy upfront, with some resinous pine and grapefruit. Tons of toffee, bready malts in the middle. Hints of oak and vanilla. Bit of booze in the finish with some earthy hops.

Not as hoppy upfront as the nose, still get some of those awesome dry hopped citrus/pine flavors. Tons of malt. Hits all the notes; from cereal to caramel to dark fruit to a bit of roasty and even a faint hint of chocolate. The Oaked lends it's traits with some wood and vanilla flavors. Bitter throughout. Definitely some alcohol of the back of the tounge.

A solid medium heavy, but with ample carbonation. Bitter and dry in the finish. Tons of flavor but still very drinkable, maybe dangerously so.

Overall, I am quite impressed with this beer. It does manage to be better than the some of it's parts. The dry hopping is what seals the deal for me. A truly one of a kind American ale. Buy this if you see it. While you will appreciate this more if you have tried the three other Bastards, it is a fine beer independently. Drink it fresh. Cheers!

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Deep, clear ruby red with a light brown, frothy, pillowy head that builds well and fades slowly leaving behind good lace and great retention. Nice when held up to light.

S: Huge burst of sweet, roasted malt, caramelized sugar, maple sugar, wood, earth, and a bit of booze. Give it a swirl to build the head again and some really complex aromas come out. Maple syrup, bourbon, dark, dried fruits...as the beer warms, some strange metallic aromas come out and it smells too sweet. I'm not gonna knock it too much because it's been in my glass for nearly two hours.

T: The flavors are very complex, as well. Heavily roasted, almost smoked or charred malt stand out with hints of booze and wood. The booze is very complementary with the malt character. In my opinion, the blend works out really well. I'm a big fan of this.

M: Surprisingly not-so-heavy body with a clean, flavorful finish. Fairly cloying at room temperature with plenty of time to breathe. But that's just the heavy roasted malt tiring out the palate I'm sure.

O: Awesome concept with equally awesome execution. To me, the Oaked Bastard really shows itself. Fantastic stuff!

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

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a creamy cap atop the hazy amber liquid; leaves sheets of lace

Smell: Resinous aroma, with citrus, pine and a bit of caramel to balance things out

Taste: Caramel, up front, with a burst of resinous citrus that arrives almost instantaneously; by mid-palate, the grapefruit and pine flavors are in full force and build, after the swallow, though just a hint of caramel remains around to balance the bitterness

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: So fine in so many ways and, unlike some other Stone beers, does not become sticky; just the right amount of malt to balance out the hops

(Had a bottle of thisa few days later and would rate it a shade lower; the hops were more aggressive and the alcohol was more apparent, neither of which was a positive to me; on the plus side, the oak comes through a bit more in the bottle.)

Delighted to try this version of one of my favorite beers. From what I was told at the store, this is a blend of Double, Standard and Oaked AB mixed with approx a 1/3 of each.

Sure looks like Arrogant Bastard. Creamy tan head with a burgundy tint. The beer is the AB classic maroon/amber color. Excellent retention and lumpy lacing remains.

Smells like Arrogant Bastard... Kind of a cherry coke/Dr. Pepper sweetness to the aroma tucked behind a thick wave of juicy resinous hops.

I think in the end, it mostly reminds me of the Oaked version. A wonderful balance of thick cherry coke flavored sweet malts along with the big pine hop punch. Provides a touch more depth vs. the standard version. Oak depth without the over the top heat from Double Bastard.

Fairly bold body with an oily feel. Slight carbonation.. Wonderful.

Wish I had another bottle, so I assume that means I think it's drinkable. Very nice.

I have a feeling this one will be back from Stone.

Just when you thought the arrogance and bastardization of ales has met its limits, Stone somehow finds new heights of intimidation and brashness in a beer.... and doing so with such beauty, elegance, and refinement. Not unlike an elegant balerina- turn porn star.

High aggression of pine resins, citrus piths, and sharp spruce lead the hoppy nose into a swirl of hops with malty notes of bread crust, lightly scorched caramel, and sun-kissed barley kernels. All of which scream brashness and assault.

Pouring a deep amber color, the beer carries a hazy glow with a dense and sturdy yellowish head. Very mousse-like and sticky with lace/legging. Maybe the beer should be served with a fork and knife.

An on slaught of dense malt flavor begin with deeply caramelized barley, toffee, and molasass. Not to be outdoane, the rebuttal of hops balance the mean spirited malts with sharp pine, resin, white grapefruit flesh, and a pithy/sappy taste unlike anything ever found in a beer.

Heavy, full, and creamy early, the beer takes ultimate fullness to malty dryness, arid hoppiness, and alcoholic warmth in a hurry. This makes the beer way too drinkable for such strength and power.

The insestual nature of these Basards give the right contributions from each while giving the beer a fresher dry-hopped aroma, fortified hop flavor, and intense bitterness. If not for the paint thinner-like alcohol taste and shear power in flavor, the beer could reach perfect- even if a bastard.

Poured from a badass looking 22oz bottle into my Ommegang goblet. Nice off white finger of nicely retaining, nicely lacing head. Straight up cherry cola colored. Words cannot describe the nose, but I'll try. Oak. Citrus. Prune. Cola. Sweet malt. Cherry. Amazing. Big flavor. I'd imagine it'll age like a champ. Some pineapple, pine, passion fruit. dark roasty flavors, oak. LOOONG bitter finish. Drying out my mouth long finish. Chalky. Drinks pretty good. This little bastard didn't let me down.

what can I say that hasn't already been said about this beer? I'm not going to go through the traditional reviewing write up. I like it better than double or oaked bastard (though I like both)because it is smoother. It is a great blend and was well worth the 6.99 I paid for the bomber.

Another major winner from Stone. This is like a liquid creme brulee. Or more accurately, like a creme brulee without the creme.

Pours a deep purply amber with a big, fluffy tanish head that falls to a sticky curtain of lace. The aroma is huge and carmelly, with a big dose of citrusy hops that takes a dark, plummy turn in conjunction with the malt. The flavor is like burnt caramel, with a sweet, charred edge. The hops are huge and sweet and blowzy, citrusy and piny. The mouthfeel is chewy and firm, with a bitter, carmel crunch to it.

650ml bottle.

It pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy off-white head that sticks for a bit and recedes to some ok lacing.

The smell is nice but I expected more. It is sweeter than I expected with a nice resinous hop smell with both citrus and pine. The malt is rather caramally and a hint of alcohol can be whiffed.

The flavor comes across better to me than the smell. It has that nice hop kick with a big long hit of bitterness. The sweetness comes through to provide a bit of balance, but it isn't as prevalent in the taste as it was in the smell. There is also a nice woodiness. This one is so delicious but I would take both the Double and the Oaked over it.

The mouthfeel and drinkability are both perfect. It is a very nice beer.
