Stone Double Bastard

(1/3) > >>

Kaiser:
I had this beer last night for our New Year's Eve dinner and have to say that I was disappointed.

Do I have to age this beer first? I know it's 10% ABV, but do these 10% have to come with such a harsh and bitter taste? The aroma was also very dominated by alcohol.

Kai

babalu87:
I would think that beer could use some aging.

Have you tried Stone IPA or their Ruination?
Both very hoppy, I'm wondering how you perceive the bitterness in those?

bluesman:
The chinook hops in their beers are up front and center. The bitterness is arrogant.  ;D

I am not a huge chinnook fan when it comes to IPA's, but then again I'm an East Coast guy.

Don't get me wrong...I really like the Stone beers, but I prefer the Centennial and Cascade blend in my IPA's.

Kaiser:
I guess that beer was just not for me.

Kai

blatz:
you're not alone - I'ma  big fan of Stone, but I thought the Double Bastard was terrible.  I'm not a huge Arrogant Bastard fan though either, so I guess I shouldn't have expected to like the 2X.
