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

Pours a deep amber with a modest creamy head. Malty aroma with caramel, citrus and pine needles. Full body, oily feel, average carbonation. Taste kicks off with lots of bitterness from grapefruit, coffee, roasted malt and some marzipan. Loooong and hoppy finish.

If there could be a perfect beer made for me this is got to be as close as it gets. Rich crimson color that poured a beutiful thick tan cloudy head that looked like it was put on top by a whipped cream can. The aroma was a perfect blend of malt snd hops, flowers and fruits. The taste was everything and more that the aroma hinted it would be. A long thick tongue tingling of malt, fruits and hops that took forever before ending with just the right amount of bitteness. This beer made you say "WOW " with every sip, please let this linger for awhile. Yet it beckons you to quickly pick me up and have another. This beer isnít arrogant it pure genius!

Come nice caramel, toffee and dark fruit flavours, but a bit one dimensional

Arrogant Bastard Ale...are you worthy? Well, most of us arenít but luckily Iím part of the group that loves this brew. Pours out a nice deep red color with a slight haziness to it with a nice sizable head with good retention and strong lacing. I loved that aspect of the beer. The aroma was great as well. Mostly malts and hops with a slight pine and citrus component in the background. Itís flavor is what you would expect from an Arrogant, it has a dry bitter taste offered by the hops on a low carbonated body and dry finish although itís not the smoothest beer but itís still shines. Amazing.

Huge fat lasting lacy head. Wonderfully huge malty caramel nose with pronounced grassy piny overtones. Huge thickness leads pretty quickly to the hops which hit way over and before the malts. The finish is very long and piny with rich bitterness. ---That dog will hunt!

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2012 Bottle. Aggressive beer indeed. Some maltiness but plenty of hop to grab you. Not the smoothest drinker, but damn goot all the same.

Really very strong and rightfully named. Drink slowly and appreciate the caramel, tofee, and hops. The tastes mgiht hide the hops at times, but the hops will eventually reign supreme in your mouth. Iíll say it again, drink slowly.

arrogant bastard ale is a pretty harsh beer, makes that clear on the back of the 22oz bottle. high on hops, kinda bitter-sweet. i recommend this one if you like a dark beer

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 A staple for me when I can afford it, this brew is hoppy, astringent and fairly strong. Very tasty! Nice that they brew it all year long. 5/16 The beer is as great as always. What is new is the packaging. I found a six pack of 16 ounce CANS today! For 12 bucks. Believe me, that is a bargain! I hope this not just a promotional thing. Thanks, Stone!

Pours a gorgeous dark red, fruity aroma with HUGE hoppy flavors--yet it never becomes unbalanced. For anyone who likes a beer that bites back, this is a brilliant choice.
