22 oz bottle poured into Weizen Glass.
A - Powerful, gorgeous looking beer. Dark reddish brown, with some carbonation noticeable at the bottom. Poured a very thick, tannish colored head. Head shrunk slightly, but remain prominent at all times. Thick, good looking residuals left behind.
S - Lot's going on. Up front there's a lot of malt, some caramel, and lot's of spices. Difficult to put a finger on them, so we'll just call it "spicy". When warmed a bit, I noted a bit of a roasty smell, similar to a bock.
T - The great thing about the Bastard brews is how much is going on in the taste department. Up front, there's a lot of malt, notes of caramel, lot's of spice. I could really notice the spices in the aftertaste, which is delicious. Almost a light red pepper taste, very nice. As with the aroma, some cocoa and roasty flavors. Alcohol slightly noticeable when warmed. This is one of my favorite beers because like I said, there is so much going on flavor wise, but they all compliment each other so well, and nothing is out of place.
F - Good thickness, carbonation is felt. Not dry at all, which I like. Can really feel the spice in the aftertaste.
O - A damn good beer, that's all that needs to be said. I highly recommend this brew.
