COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

After reading about it so much online, i have been really wanting to try this brew, picked up a bottle from the bottle shop in HK, and had it with some Hunan food in Shenzhen, which it pair very well with. I agree the lingering dry bitterness might not be for all, but for me it was so smooth with the right about of malt sweetness, cant wait to have more of it

Very nice color of dark red and brown. Its very (!) hoppy, some light malt, very bitter in the mouth (you have to like that but I do). It lasts very long. A beer of consequence.

From a 22oz into a Corsendonk chalice. Pours dark brown with a significant long-lasting head and lace. Aroma of rich malts. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark roasted malts, burnt malts, straw hops, minerals, floral hops, amber malts, slight smoke and floral herbs. Overall tasty and quaffable with some arrogantly challenging flavors.

Gorgeous caramel aroma. Really dark red brown colour. Hit of chocolate. The hops are an aftertaste. Not normally a fan of American ales but this one hits the spot! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beautiful looking beer. Arrogant Bastard impresses me every time I have it. Definitely has a bite to it and a great lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Mahogany color with tan head. Aroma smells like you're walking in to a brewery. Taste - aggressively hopped. Resinous pine. Well balanced with an equally aggressive maltiness. Caramel malt with a slight molasses/brown sugar sweetness. This is a large beer in every way and properly named. Very nice beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice crisp, dry hopped beer. Not much of an aroma, but a great hoppy taste that fills your mouth and stays through your sip. There is no malty sweetness to interrupt this hop pleasure - wish stone would try this brew with more varied hop notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle. Amazing! Hoppy with strong malty flavors. Great lacing. Another awesome beer from Stone.

Tap at CBC Brixton. Aroma is great, right up my street - funky overripe fruit in abundance. Earthiness too, withy a little mushroom. Medium body, medium carbonation. Dark treacly rye bread, marmalade, grapefruit bitterness. Lovely balance, not too sweet. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
