November Spawned a Monster

Good old November. You can always count on it for Thanksgiving, fallen leaves, Christmas commercials galore, and everyone's timeless favorite: the release of Stone's Double Bastard. The bigger, badder brother of Arrogant Bastard is a 10.5% ABV beer that blurs the line between American Strong Ale and Barleywine. It has a huge citrus hoppiness that is slightly tempered by the massive malt presence. And to Stone's credit, it is worth mentioning that the beer has not increased in price in the last three years; $6.49 is still the going rate. Kelly's on Wyoming was just getting their shipment in when I arrived, so there will be plenty available for the Thanksgiving festivities. For extra November fun, chug one of these at Thanksgiving dinner and start a discussion with your parents about how it's their fault you turned out the way you did!

This beer is trouble. I forgot an entire night and most of the following day due to this beer.
