Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a nice deep amber color with one and a half fingers of fluffy light tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Heads lasts for a few minutes and leaves some lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, fruity malts, pine hops, and very light oak. Not a lot of oak and no alcohol present in the smell.

t - Tastes of grapefruit, citrus hops, pine, fruity malts, oak, caramel malts, and bready malts. Some bitterness up front which them moves into the smoothness of the oak and caramel malts. Tiny bit of alcohol but not much.

m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation, very smooth body.

d - A pretty good strong ale. The smell had some nice pine and citrus hops, whereas the taste had a lot more oak and malts come out. Both were enjoyable, would give another shot.

Served in a snifter on tap at the Barley House in Algonquin, IL

This beer is served a ruby red color with an ecru foam adorning the surface. The smell is overpowering with hoppy aroma. Many would like that, I'm putting out there, for the record, that this much hops makes me nervous. The taste is really quite hoppy, but there is a bit of a caramel taste thrown into the background just so that it's not a liquid made up entirely of hops. The mouthfeel is quite bitter, but that's something that I've grown to expect from Stone. Overall this was a good beer, I understand that there are many will love it, I respect it, and that's as far as I'm going.

This beer poured out as a deep amber color with a nice looking strong cream colored head on top. The aroma of the beer was hoppy, it also had a good amount of malt on the nose too. The taste of the beer is simply a blend of the Bastard's. It's hoppy, it's a little sweet, just really nice flavors going on here. The mouthfeel of this beer was pretty nice also, has a good medium to thick body with a solid amount of carbonation. Overall I was glad I got a bottle of this, it went pretty quick at my local shop.
