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.

This is my favorite beer right now, ever since I tried it a few years ago. Unfortunately, I can’t always afford to buy it, but when I do it’s always heavenly. I am so impressed by everything about this Ale I would never let my fridge run out of it if possible.

It is definitely an aggressive beer compared to the standard commercial fare, but for craft beers and for me it’s actually a real nice balance of the toasted malts, some hops, caramel, little bitter on back. It’s pretty drinkable for 7.2%. Could probably chug them on tap and get myself in trouble.

Before rate beer, I’d have never tried this. I had looked at it many times and wondered what was. Finally time to try it I guess. Bottle, color dark Amber, big creamy white head, huge lacing. Aroma spruce, raisin, malt. Flavor is malt, citrus rind bitter, orange. Finish is bitter sweet. This has a lot of sweet malt backbone, with a big, hops bitter, which I guess is what they are known for. Palate is rich and smooth, carbonation moderate.

RCx240 (61) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2014
Pours a deep, ruby amber with a small tan head (but decent retention). Aroma is a bit on the faint side, including notes of caramel, coffee, pine, and resin. Taste wise, you’re greeted with notes of coffee and roasted nuts, thick caramel and molasses, and floral pine and resin lingering on the palate. Full bodied, lively carbonation, long and bitter finish. Quite enjoyed this one.

Excellent beverage with a gorgeously well-balanced bitterness backed by a full malty body and thick, creamy texture. A modern American classic.

ALLOVATE (2458) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2014
Big bang as the cap shifted towards the ceiling. Strong waft of nutty praline filled the room. Beyond it is woody, nutty; heaving with roasted, oddly phenolic husky grains, over sparged or the like - nothing like burnt toast in your beer!
Palate is sweet, residually and forefront. Sticky, icky with bitter burnt sugar notes not helping. This is sweet, Cara, crystal, Vienna, don’t care what they used I believe I’ve failed to find the depth. Medial body with developing (thankfully) rough, earthy, spicy, floral and piney hop notes as it warms near room temperature. Carbonation is moderate softening greatly as it heads south. Pepperberries, juniper and a hint of mace give it thrill otherwise it is sugar and wood driven. Perplexed as it has taken me years to taste the Bastard and it treats me like that. Bastard!!!.

Arrogant Bastard pours a deep ruby red with a thick tan head that lasts a fair while. The aroma is strong floral hops with biscuits and honey. The flavor is also strong floral hops with a bit of biscuits and honey. Overall this is a solid beer.

De couleur ambré au reflets bourgogne bon colle de mousse également, Arômes de houblons, malt caramel,quelques touches d’épies. Au Goût c’est très ’épais’ comme texture, ça goute beaucoup les agrumes mais sous une nappe de malt caramel assez heavyweight! aspect de tomates également ,une petite touche d’acidité en final qui apporte un balancement super honnête à une amertume plus que présente. très bon balancement des saveurs entre elles. Près du BBQ c’est Solide

Finally a beer that perfectly describes me. Pretty intense flavor. Good but not one of my favorites.

On tap @ Haket Pub. Reddish brown with a small off white head. Malty and hoppy tones. Malt, fruit and loads of hops. Medium to full body with a long bitter finish.

Now available in Alberta, Canada. Not sure what the huge fuss over this one is, has some good malt characteristics and some spicy notes. Very pine-y and caramel-y. Decent beer but not living up to the hype for me.
