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.

The nose on this is...shockingly weak, given how strong everything else in it is. It has a slightly toasted bread smell hinting at some darker malts. Hops seem to be of american high alpha variety, good citrus/fruit smells. Leaves good head disspates a bit quickly, and medium lacing. Tastes heavily bitter with a bit of malty sweetness, good strong biscuit taste.

First tried at BJ's Brewhouse in ABQ. Nice color. Think head. VERY hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very strong tasting beer, in a large bottle. It reminds me very much of a Shiner Bock in taste and consistency. A good beer, but not one I would go out of my way to order.

Dermis (20) - Monona, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2002
Very dark amber with nice head upon pour. VERY nice flowery aroma from the hops. Verry bitter in the first sip. Leaving the classic sting on the sides of your tongue (as good strong ales do). The more you sip it mellows out in one of the most balanced ales I’ve tasted. First a sting of bitter then a plesant sweet and fruity taste finishing off with with that long lasting after taste I love about ales. I definately rate this as one of the best beers I’ve tasted. You will be amazed for shure for an American Ale.

Money. This beer has excellent malting, with a nice bit of bitterness. Just excellent flavor. Starts off a bitter and and finishes smooth. One of the best ales I’ve ever had. Nobody is worthy.

Bottle. Mahogany brown with reddish hues. Medium head with a light tan color. Aroma of hop oils. Taste is more of the same, much more but with the perfect amount of malt to offset the intense hops Long, delicious hops aftertaste for about a week.

From a 22oz. This has been one of my favorite beers for awhile. Complex and incredibly well rounded, this beer combines floral with citrus with an twistedly strong hoppy finish. Just like their Ruination, it is incredibly crisp and refreshing.

Very nice. Dark, malty, with great complexity and a super hop bite, all in perfect balance. This is a really great beer.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 This is the perfect beer... from the name to the logo to the way the taste punches you in the face, arrogant bastard does a lot of things right. Some beers with this much flavor can be overpowering and are only good for one or two pints, but this has a nice balance that allows for more enjoyment...I guess you can say it has endurance

Big bottle served at a comfortable drinking temperature. Nice, lasting off-white head over a mahogany coloured body, with only a slight haze. Aroma of dry malts and dark fruits. Complex taste profile that starts malty and develops into a blend of berries and pine hoppiness. Bitter ending with hints of yeast. Alcohol taste was mild. Very good beer.
