I bought 2x 12oz bottles of this today at The Drinkery ($3.20 ea after discount). Quaffing now while watching some college football.... BTW, anyone still bother reading the drivel on the back label? ;-)

Started with 1 bottle into an imperial nonic glass. This version of AB is a slightly hazy chestnut color. The head is a thin, fine layer of miniscule beige bubbles. Carbo is scattered and hard to find. Lacing is at a minimum, too. The feel is quite smooth and silky, and the body is a solid medium. The aroma is caramel and toffee malts co-mingling with some woody notes.

Like the aroma, the flavor has a healthy dose of caramel and toffee. There's lots of earthiness here, along with some rindy hop bitterness. To me the oak is very subtle, detectable but subtle. Makes me think the price-hike on this vis-a-vis regular Bastard is really playing on the gimic aspect as opposed to something actually benefitting the flavor profile. Anyhow, this is flavorful but I'd go regular Bastard if I'm feeling like a Bastard. Prosit!!
