2012 Double Bastard Ale aged in Bourbon Barrels
BREWED AUGUST 2ND & NOVEMBER 2ND, 2012
Arrogant Bastard Ale’s (really) big brother, this dark amber ale is brewed with a huge malt bill and a belligerent amount of hops. It’s a heavy, bitter beast of a beer and absolutely not for the timid.
The charred American oak barrels lend intense smoke and vanilla flavors, while the Kentucky bourbon barrels add nuances of butterscotch and caramel. These meld with rich dark chocolate notes produced by Kentucky bourbon barrels that once held Stone Suitable for Cave Aging - An Imperial Smoked Porter Tribute to Danny Williams to produce a very complex, well-structured beer with intense flavor.
