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.

From a bottle. Pours dark copper with trace of white head and light carbonation. Faint malty aroma, with an initial malt sweetness followed on by piney hops bite. Bitter lingering finish.

Draft. Deep coppery red with thin off white head aroma of malt and dark sugar sharp hop bitterness hit followed by sweeter dark dried fruit richness with bitterness returning Served too cold for my liking.

commonmac (638) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 Bottle from Haskells. Consumed in Moeder Lambic glass. Forgot how dark this one pours. Copper/amber. Minimal head. Aroma has some sweet elements but pine/citrus/hops come on strong. Gives way to a blast of hops that grabs you by the taste buds and never lets go. Basically a hop filled ride with resiny aftertaste. It definitely owns its hop commitment. Mouthfeel is cloying. You don’t want to drink this before other beers. It doesn’t play well in the sandbox.

Rating number 800. Mahogany colour, off white head. Aroma of caramel, wet wood, not a lot of the aroma actually. Taste is light sweet, very bitter, the aftertaste is not very plesant, is astrengent as fuck. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. I guess I was expecting a lot. A bit of a let down...

Okay, I’m not too proud to admit I bought this only because of the name. But I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor. It one of those beers that would definitely take some getting used to, but only beacause it’s unlike other beers I’ve had. I think the best way to describe it is ’meaty.’

Easy to drink and not as aggressive as one would think. Toned down hops and bitterness. Ends dry and nose has some floral tones. Good if a bit thin.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 18, 2003
malty, almost scotch-like aroma. Pours an amber red, a tad cloudy with a frothy head. Very heavy mouthfeel similar to a scottish ale. The commercial description is quite accurate. This beer has bite! Very strong hops...almost to its detriment as it effects the overall balance. Hops crush all other aspects of the beer. Once you get used to it, it settles down. Not a beer for the timid.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2004 Red/Brown with a big, tan head. Grapefruity hop nose with some caramel. Musty malt flavor is overlain by grapefruity hops. Quite sweet, but very bitter.

VAYankee (334) - Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2003
This beer has bite! Brown/red color with a strong, spice aroma. Nice mouthfeel. The flavor is strong and severe, just as advertised. A bitter and hoppy taste. Shows some strong similarities to barleywine style. A high quality beer best suited to when you have as aggressive an attitude as this Arrogant Bastard.
