The Bastard in me really wanted to get a hold of this beer.

Pours from bomber into IRS snifter a deep russet brown hue with ruby amber edges that just catch the light incredibly. Foam was in great abundance with the pour; as was to be expected with any Bastard beer that I've enjoyed. Head was cream colored that slowly receded to sticky lacing and modest fuzz rimming the glass.

The hops are the obvious dominating character in this beer. Big, piney and earthy is the ticket with big portions of caramel and honey sweetness. The oak character is really nice, just the nicest hint of wood to really pull you in.

Beer opens up with malted sweetness that softly caresses, then moves to big piney aggressive hops that assault the taste buds. Malts and hops take a back seat to that strong oak. It pretty much dominates from mid palate to earthy finish. The oak characteristics held very well against the onslaught of hops, perhaps too well. I really liked the oak flavors, but it might be overpowering to some.

Mouthfeel is full and luxurious. Modest carbonation is just about right for a beer of this much wood character.

Drinkability is good in my book. The oak is strong, but it has a lot to offer with its dry hoppiness and sweet malts

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter.

A: Pours a clear ruby with a light white head.
S: Brown sugar, caramel malt, oak.
T: Similar to the smell, but a blast of hops is present after the sweetness.
M: Mild carbonation, medium bodied, and smooth finish.
D: You could drink this quickly if you wanted to, but the complexity makes it worth sipping.
