Brewing Co. "Double Bastard 2006"
Strong Ale - California / Seasonal
$6.50 / 22 oz.
10 per cent ABV
to a Barleywine in texture, sweetness and intensity,
“Double Bastard” is a spinoff of Stone’s
wildly popular “Arrogant Bastard” Strong
Ale. Amped up, oak-aged and vintage-dated, this winter
seasonal “Bastard” is designed to be
cellared for one to two years. Collectors, avid to
score a rare 22 oz ‘bomber’ for their
cellar, await each new ‘vintage’ with
bated breath, only to face daily temptation to open
it once they succeed. Even tasted young, this beer
commands hypnotic power over ale addicts. Wave after
wave of psychedelic flavors crash over the senses;
candied grapefruit, toffee, marmalade, flan and wow,
grapefruit again! Mere mortals cannot be expected
to resist its charms or concentrate on anything else
after the first sip, so hire a babysitter and unplug
the phone before you crack the seal.
