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.

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.’

Ernest (6257) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2003 Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is heavily hoppy (grapefruit, resin), moderately malty (caramel), with notes of apricot and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent, lightly alcoholic. Too much grapefruit juice for me, but I can see why hopheads like it.

I wasn’t ready for this one. Medium brown in color, with a bit of fizziness in a week head. First taste is an explosion in your mouth that can be unplesant if you aren’t prepared for it. Strong hop with snappy citris, coupled with a dark maltiness. Truly a taste of it’s own.

Draught at Sunset Bar and Grill, Boston, MA.</br> Amber with a fine lacy off-white head. Big fruity aroma, grapefruit. Big bitter start with plenty of flavour but not what I like.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2006 on tap: alright alright...everyone get over this beer already, deep carmel brown color with a airy head that disipated, nice hop character....with some alcohol taste. its a good beer but not a great beer. ive tasted better pale ale-strong ale types in my time. but since everyone thinks the name is real cool we’ll all drink it whenever we can. everyone just relax with the ’stone’ thowing!

I dig this beer mostly for its color. The taste is really bold. I bought a 22 oz bottle and it took me awhile to drink it. As it warmed up towards the end of the bottle, the malts came though and I got this cool coffee-like subdued flavor. I've had this beer before and I'll certainly have it again.

A good sweet aroma. The tasting reveals no finesse, only an oppressive presence. The aftertaste is similar to having a metal tongue depressor in your mouth. I'll pass, you arrogant bastard!

The ale’s appearance was clear and dark crimson brown with a thin head. It had a hoppy, but sweet scent to it. The taste was overwhelmed by hops. To me it was very bitter and all of the hops overpowered some of the other less prevalent sweet flavors. The mouthfeel wasn’t anything special, but it was fine. This wouldn’t be my first choice for this style of beer. Although drinkable, I wouldn’t drink much of this at one time. Overall I was a little disappointed; I didn’t feel it lived up to its arrogant label.

A deep amber brew with a tight, long lasting head. It has a strong, robust flavor followed by a bitter hop taste. The bitterness had a tinch of sourness to it. The label tells me that I probably wont like it. I did like it, not much but a little. I had to clear my palate with some bland yellow beer.
