COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

soy sauce, resin, maple syrup wrapped up into one earthy soil . I think the one I got was a bit skunky but still exceptionally complex. This was a renaissance faire classic with a turkey drumstick in one hand and the bastard the other hand.

Extremely dark amber red with a creamy head that doesn’t fade away. It had a distinctive hoppy malty smell. It had a powerful roasty taste and an aftertaste that lasts for quite some time. I was totally impressed by this beer.

I really don’t see what’s so special about this beer, It’s very good, the bottle is an excellent read, but I swear the taste is not very unique. I swear I’ve had a half dozen other beers that taste very similar.

Typical early American homebrew beer style. Over the top on every front, especially specialty malts. Still, if you are used to such a strong American Ale then perhaps this is right up your alley. Personally I find no real faults. Beautiful aroma and colour, but other big beers are far better.

It live up to its name. redish in color with a creamy head. Lots of hops and malt. It is a little harsh the first time I tried it, but it grew on me.

Aroma: A prominent to intense hop aroma with a citrusy, floral, perfume-like, resinous, piney, and/or fruity character derived from American hops. Fruitiness, either from esters or hops, is also detected Some alcohol is noted. Flavor: Hop flavor is high hop character is citrusy, floral, resinous, piney and fruity very high hop bitterness, although the malt backbone supports the strong hop character and provides the best balance. Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium-light to medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived astringency great example

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 Aroma: Fruity caramel malt, grapefruit. Appearence: Hazy, Reddish-brown with a creamy .5 inch head. Some lacing present. Flavor: Complex. Sweet carmel malt at first with a fruity citrus hops right behind. Slight bitterness in the finish. Toasted grain aftertaste. Very nice. Palate: Texture is just right. Good carbonation and solid mouthfeel as one would expect from a beer name Arrogant Bastard. Overall: I like this beer. Balanced flavors and good texture make me want more of this. Serving type: bottle

It has a nice dark copper color which was very pleasing to the eyes. A consistent foam and carbonation left rings on the glass but not too much carbonation when tasted. Tasted slightly of cherries and citrus. The hops gave it a nice floral taste but not overpowering.
