I think that we can all mostly agree that Arogant Bastard is a great beer.

So I went to my local beer store tonight to grab a couple of beers, and I saw that Double bastard was out, I figured i needed to give it a try. But not only did they have Deuces of Double Bastard they had this behemoth :



So being the beer enthusiast that I am, I go and blow my beer budget on it, but what the hell, right? The other bottles are there as a reference, that thing is huge, 3 quarts and 5.4 ounces. They even put a pad lock on the swing top to help keep you out if it, if you want to let it age, which I will be doing with this one.



If you haven't gotten to try the Double yet, i would highly recommend it, very tasty.

Cheers

That's rocks!
The padlock is a nice touch. I've seen that bottle in a store and have wanted to get it.

Saw it on my last run to BevMo. Opted for Delerium Noel instead.



Did buy a Bastard glass, though.

Just went through a deuce of the double bastard. I liked it, but thought it could use a little more nose.

That said, I'm amazed at how clean this beer is. At 10% ABV, it's still remarkably clean, and the malt comes through very nicely. Gotta get me some of that pacman yeast! (and no, I didn't see any in the bottle).

They have the huge bottle for $100.00 at my local liquor store. A bomber is $7.99 I believe.

At my local booze hut the bombers are 3.49$ and 4.99$, depending on the beer. And that big bastard is only 59.00$!!!
