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. íCourse thereís always the masochists...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 12.19.04 Bomber thanks to, um, ah, er, ahhhhh...I forget who sent me this sweetheart, but I thank you. Ruby red and brown pour with full and lasting head. Aromas fill the air of fruitcake, grapefruit, gasoline, and cat piss. Big malt front on this brew, typical Stone, then massive grapefruit pith bitterness. If I had blind tasted this brew I might be shocked by the flavors, but itís not -- it says Stone right on the label and I see the gargoyles and all and thereís some nonsense written on the back of the bottle insulting me and daring me to taste this concoction. Damn, I would truly enjoy living somewhere that I could get these everyday. Anyway, palate is outstanding, syrupy smooth with gum tingling hops. The stuf gets better with each sip.

updateNow Stone is sending this elixir to NJ and I can only say that I was right, its presence has added to my overall enjoyment of life. Massive, sticky, numbing, and necessary. Thanks Stone.

pours burgundy/brownish with a small white head. Big hop aroma. Is this a barleywine? Huge warming sensation after just one sip. Way bitter all the way through. Over the top from start to finish. A good one for sure.

VAYankee (331) - Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Clear, dark reddish brown body with a thick cream colored head. Aroma is strongly hoppy and fruity with an underlying malt sweetness. Starts fruity, on a modest malt backbone, alcoholic and slightly harsh; finishes dry, alcoholic, and lightly bitter.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Big bottle. Juicy, hoppy, boozy DIPA aroma. Pours a clear chestnut-cherry liquid, foamy head, lots of lace. In-your-face american flavors: malt-hops-booze. Definite relative of Arrogant bastard, just a bit boozier.

daniela (9) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 13, 2004 does not count
thick, dank, sweet, bitter, velvety, rude. reminds me of a barleywine - itís warm going down. grapefruit aromas, intense malt and hop flavors - all balanced, but still ridiculous and self-indulgent.

sdcourtney (40) - Berlin, Germany, - DEC 12, 2004
2004 Release. Nice fruity aroma, different from the usual dark fruit - more of a subtle peach or grape. Reddish ruby-brown with small bubbles and nice creamy head. Intense malt flavor balanced with lots of hop bitterness. A character that is íroundí, - malt wraps around the bitterness, which stays around in the back of your mouth until it slowly fades away. Nice creamy body that is moderate to full, more íroundnessí abounds. Alcohol is evident bit well hidden by the malt intensity. Unique blend of fruity, malty, bitterness - this beer will kick your a$$ - and you WILL like the kickiní...

shadey (1903) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 10, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2004 Beautiful ruby red color with a thin film of a head. A strong mix of hops and malt in a well balanced mix. This is far better than the normal Arrogant Bastard. I wonít rate this as highly as others, because it just didnít make me want to go back for more. It just wasnít that appealing.

Gachupines (903) - USA - DEC 10, 2004
Definitely a stronger version of Arrogant Bastard. More hops along with a stronger malt backbone than I remember in regular Bastard. Leaves a nice lingering taste. Strong but more balanced than I would have thought.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Sampled from an amusing 22 oz bottle this beer poured a dark ruby-mahogany color with a small tan head. The aroma was sweet grapefruit. The flavor is strong, thick and sweet with a definite grapefruity hop character. The light sweet malt gives a pleasant balance to the brew. The hoppiness lingers intrusively on the tongue and begs for another gulp. Yum.

Strangely I *am* worthy on this one. Iím not sure why overdoing an already overdone beer is a good thing - it just is! The sweetness is more evident here, the alcohol hides behind the kitchen sink (which is included here). Just enough vinous characteristic, just enough brown sugar. My palate is left saying "thank you sir, may I have another".
