4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I've only recently been introduced to The Stone Brewing Company. That said, from the very first sip I knew I was not a typical brew. It wasn't even a typical craft brew. My initial response to a Stone Brewing Company product was "Wow, I think this might be the best beer I've ever tasted!". That was the Stone IPA. This is my first try of Arrogant Bastard Ale and after my taste buds stopped screaming "Uncle!", my response was "Ahh, Seven Hells, that's good!!". The first thing that caught my attention was smell. I knew then that Fate, that sultry mistress with the warm hand and sensible footwear had pushed us together and I was truly in for a treat. The rich head on this beer is the equivalent of a steak dinner at the Buckhorn Exchange. Once the beer hits your tongue it's like a cacophony of flavors. It takes your mind a few seconds to catch up with it. This beer is almost too good.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 Dark brown, transparent. Big and solid head after while reduced to low permanent collar. Strong aroma of pineapple and caramel with citrus and alcohol in the background. Heavy, noble, long lasting bitterness. Probably will never drink it again but definitely worth trying.

Can from Alko. A hazy raisin brown with strong natural white head. Sweet nose with raisins, spices. Herbs, pine and hints of something metallic, could be the can too. Full body with a complex, enjoyable palate. What I consider to be the typical american ale.

Nice reddish brown ale with tan head which leaves nice lacing as the head dissolves. Aroma has nuts, caramel malts, pines, grapefruit. Taste is malty caramel sweetness at first, then pines and grapefruit hops. Full body and medium carbonation. Quite malty ale but hop kick is there too.

prawie przejrzyste z zawieszonym pyłem, brązowo-czerwone, dość bujna piana ecru szybko opada do trwałego kołnierzyka;
cukierki ziołowe, miód, po zabełtaniu karmel/toffi i kwiaty;
ciało niskie, średnio nasycone, ziemiste, lekko ściągające z goryczkowym finiszem;
karmel, czerwone owoce, popiół, silna popiołowa goryczka uderza mocno, ale po chwili tonuje i trwa przyjemnie długo;
ja się napaliłem na cuda-wianki, a tu takie lada co bez szału w dodatku strasznie ziemiste.

Pours a dark mahogany with a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, pine, and citrus hops, and bread and caramel malts. Flavor is caramel and toffee, with spicy and pine hops. Has lots of carbonation and moderate bitterness. This is a great beer and I appreciate how Stone has built a character around it.
