Style: American Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
First release: November 1998
Originally brewed to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Arrogant Bastard Ale, Double Bastard Ale debuted in November 1998 as an amped-up version of that already aggressive beer. A huge malt bill and an unreasonable amount of hops make this ale one that will be appreciated by only a few, and that’s just fine with us. We didn’t brew this dark amber monster to please anyone other than ourselves.

This is a 2016 that I've been sitting on for a year or more. Can't believe I haven't reviewed this famous bastard. Big, tight bubbled head above a dark amber body. Sticky lace already apparant. Dark druit, briny hops, and big chocolate malts in the nose.

Huge aggressive pine loaded with medicinal note takes the lead, but the balance here is supurb. Hard to believe this is eleven percent. Strong flavor, but little alcohol leakage. Not for everyday drinking, but when you want something both diabolical and well crafted...

"You are not worthy" can be more than a clever tag line if you aren't careful with this one here. While I'm not a fan of every Stone product on the market, you better believe that this one is one of my favored offerings by them. Don't drink this on an empty stomach though, because this is one of the few beers that's powerful enough to get you into "blackout" mode. You've been warned.
