Stone Brewing Company Double Bastard Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish brown with a small tan head and nice lacing.
Aroma: Scents of sweet and roasted malts, hop resins, orange rind and alcohol.
Taste: Tastes like liquid magic – smooth, incredible balance, malts galore and a nice hop bitterness.
Overall: Stone Brewing Company’s Double Bastard Ale at 10.5% ABV isn’t for just anyone…only the worthy. Very drinkable, but perhaps not as sessionable due to the high ABV unless you’re capable…dare I say, WORHTY (again)? An exceptional brew.
