This beer has a nice color and good foam. It has attitude. But I don't know if it wants to be an IPA or a Stout. It has pronounced hops that gets overwhelmed by strong toasted, almost burnt, malt. It leaves a lingering aftertaste that definitely reminds me of a strong stout (not that mother's milk Guinness but more like Bell's Expedition Stout). I know it's not a Stout but the taste and aftertaste sure reminds me of one. It has a decent taste going down, a lot of flavor, not for your Lite drinkers. While there is a lot of taste in every sip, I have had better tasting brew. I was given 3 bottles of this Bastard, I'll finish them but I'm not sure I'll be buying it. At 7.2 abv, this is no slouch.
