    Holy Mary Mother of God. This beer is no joke. And I like it.

    Have you been sitting on this a while or is it still around on shelves? I never came across it myself

    I saw this thread revived and it had me hoping that there was news that this was being re-released.

    Anyone know if there's plans to see this beer again in 2017?

    Nothing like thread necromancy to get one's hopes up, just to dash them immediately. It was a Late Q3 release last year, so hopefully it'll be that again this year?

    It was kind of a surprise release last year if I recall. I'd expect some fun Bastards in 2017, but in the short attention span beer climate of today, I'd bet against this one this year. Maybe in a few years.

    Apologies in advance if I get anyone's hopes up by awakening this thread...

    I was just wondering if there was any word of a 2017 release yet? I believe it hit shelves around this time last year. Fingers crossed we see it again soon.

    Well considering the fact that they're not making any Double Bastard this year they couldn't make this beer because there isn't any fresh Double Bastard to blend with.

    Is this anywhere around Northern Colorado?

    Major bummer, indeed. No Double Bastard; no Imperial Stout; no Old Guardian. Lame...

    Yeah it sucks but I opened a '15 last night and it's held up very well.

    I feel like we have to have some version of Double Bastard this year, or at least a new version of Arrogant. Those variants are always popular and seem right in line with Stone's "new is always better" mentality of late. I wish they'd at least brew DB for Bastard boxes, even if they didn't do a stand-alone. Those sold well.
