Wow, an attack upon your taste buds. It brings a ton of hops with an interesting malt flavor. Good stuff.

A big, buff beer for men who like their beers to have a lot of character. The text on the bottle is a riot, and it makes you feel tough just to be drinking the beer. Donít drink this beer to cold, or the flavors are too raw and unmelded. Served coolish, the main flavor is a burnt caramel malt streaked with strong, course hops. Is it just me, or have they toned done the hops in favor of malt complexity? If I had to pick 10 American beers as favorites, this would be in the mix.

I really donít see whatís so special about this beer, Itís very good, the bottle is an excellent read, but I swear the taste is not very unique. I swear Iíve had a half dozen other beers that taste very similar.

This beer lies, it said I wouldnít like it, but I did. It was very complex. I donít think I could drink more than one though.

Itís ok to be arrogant when you can back it up. Arrogant Bastard does a fine job of that.

Just the bottle could kick my ass! Pair that with unbeliveable complexity and 7.2%, and you have one hell of a tough brew.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 It was harsh at first taste, but then it proceeded to become one if not the best ales i have ever had. The solidist of tastes, balls to the wall. The picture says it all, this is one bad ass beer and it can back it up.

Intense Hoppy aroma and flavor balanced with roasted and caramel malt. Medium to heavy bodied with a creamy long lasting head. This is truely an ale with an attitude! Well done!!!
