I just opened a bomber, I like this beer a lot. I get a lot of bitter, but itís not overkill. Beautiful color, finishes dark and bitter. Big citrus taset... I taste dark fruit somewhere in there, too. (Iím worthy...)

Very rich in taste. It kicks you in the mouth but appologizes with a good finish.

Well done! Great hops and malt experiment. A strong ale that is not overly astringent.

When baby hop plants are planted in the field, they go to sleep each night dreaming of someday being used in a beer like Arrogant Bastard Ale. Careful when you drink it however, you may go to sleep and wake up with a powerful headache.

They dare you not to like it and I have to say I donít like it. Just too overpowering for me. Maybe when I get more hair on my chest Iíll give it another try but for now this is too far in the deep end for me.

pours a very thick caramel color with great head retention. smells of peanut butter, an assortment of nuts, and also spices. tastes of raisins, grapefruit, weak caramel, an unknown amount of spices, and something else i canít put my finger on. hints of sweetness at the same time. to me, a very complex beer, and very bitter finish. the initial taste is very pleasurable and will have you satisfied. itís not for me at any regularity as i prefer a slightly less strong beer. i wonít forget it and will definetly drink one once in a while.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark crimson hue with a big thick slowly dissipating head. Big hop aroma on the nose, thick on the palate. The strong hop character attacks the taste buds initially and is balanced out by the deep slightly smoky caramelly malt. One big, strong, complex bastard. Magnificent.

Re-rate same time. (sorry, early in the morning, forgot about the 6-10 buttons)Though I couldnít drink it every day, this is my favorite beer. First sip led to the comment íthis is the best beer Iíve ever had.í The beer is an appealing dark amber/brown. Complicated aroma, spiciness, hops and alcohol are apparent from beginning to end. Someone picked up raisins and worchesteshire sauce. There is a lot going on with this beer and at no point is your palate left alone without a flavor to discern. This is an aggressive beer.
