COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a lacerative muther of a beer. The evil big brother of Arrogant Bastard Ale. It is strongly suggested you stay far, far away from this beer. Those foolish enough to venture close enough to taste will experience a punishingly unforgiving assault on the palate. ’Course there’s always the masochists...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

This a big beer, but damn good. The aroma is incredibly strong with a battle between citrusy and piney hops. The flavour is actually about as balanced asa beer this big could be. It starts off with some sticky sweet caramel maltiness and then a huge hop crunch with orangey/pine flavours. The mouthfeel is wonderfully resiny and oily. I wish I had more than 1 bottle.

I LOVE THIS BEER. Forget a review...listen to this. The bay area (S.F.) had a shortage. I wanted this so bad this year. Every Bev and Mo. was sold out. Stone gave me the distributer’s number, but he was sold out. every store on his list was sold out. So i called Beer of the month...Son of a gun...they had plenty. They shipped up 6. I paid the $10+ shipping and got ripped. It was a happy day

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [22 oz. bomber - 2004 vintage] Pours a dark brown/amber color with a creamy looking brown head. Powerful aroma and very complex. Mainly dark fruits, some citrus like grapefruit, sweet malts, brandy, whiskey and alcohol. Very tasty and intense smelling. The taste is amazingly smooth. Much smoother than Arrogant Bastard. The flavor is very sweet and fruity with hints of the grapefruit and caramel coming to the front. It’s blended very well and you get hints of a nice hop and malt blend all throughout the beer. The finish is very sweet and warming. One of the best beers I’ve ever had without a doubt.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2007 Wonderful fruity aroma, grapefruit, orange peel, hop oil, ozone and cat pee. Dark brown-amber liquid with slight haze, with foamy light tan lacing head. Medium heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Big fruity bitter sweet start, caramel, grapefruit, neutral fruits. Mild acidity. Hops from start to finish. Wicked bitter finish and after. Awesome taste, mild alcohol flavor but overall balanced taste. Great stuff.

Dark reddish brown with good head. Nice hop aroma and flavor balanced with caramel maltiness. Very good beer.

There was a time when I would have been afraid of the Double Bastard...not anymore. Very nicely done Mr. Bastard. Aromas of fruit, burnt sugar and citrus. Hint of alcohol. Nice hop strength pushing through a thick textured and moderately sweet, slick elixir. Just plain enjoyable - skating that fine line between strong ale and barleywine - which is a place I love to hang out. Not so much arrogance, just extreme confidence and rightly so. Big thanks to Kinz.

The angry big brother of stone’s arrogant bastard. Pours out dark with a good head. This beer is fairly much the same idea as arrogant with some extra alcohol taste. The taste of the alcohol seems to calm down the overwhelming taste of the brew a bit, giving it a more refined feel than arrogant.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 4, 2005
Pours large frothy head (despite dangerous amounts of alcohol), tea-copper-ruby colour. Clean , dry hopped nose , malts with stark alcohol behind . Initially very bitter, earthy. Warming alcohol becomes more like a big brother, won’t leave you alone. Bastard. Big, strong bully.

not as good as arrogant bastard, the extra alcohol content seems forced. but the flavor is still present, everything that is good about arrrogant bastard is in this beer, the extra alcohol just seems to take away from it
