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...

romankosecki (14) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
[tap, Jabeerwockie, Warsaw]
Appearance small foam, small bubbles, creamy, long lasted. Dark amber, almost brown, a little bit cloudy. Nice.
Aroma: Nice! Rich palate of malts: grains, biscuits, caramel (raisins, muscavido, roasted sweet bread). Pleasent red fruits: apple and grapes. Some grassy/herbal notes. Alcohol is present, but it’s acceptable.
Taste: At the beginning very sweet, malty with hints of fruit. After second appears some strange, grassy, phenolic and taninn note. Herbal, spicy, acrid. It was really strange, but overall rather unpleasent - like beer fermented in too high temperature. Alcohol is present, nicely warms up throat.
Mouthfeel and bitterness: rather high bitterness. I feel phenols and alcohol present, making it long and sharp. Texture is oily, rich, thick, nicely pours in mouth.
Aroma was great, I expected some world class beer, but in taste something strange appeared and it ruined the experience. Sincerely, if I paid half of the price, I would be satisfied, but for this money I expect more.

Flaska som lagrats 3 år. Fasen vilken doft. Vänner av öl köp o lagra!! Här finns hela registret. Torkad frukt o hav med tång. Härligt balanserad med fina toner av torkad frukt. Väl balanserad med en helt underbar efterbeska. Världsöl!!! Blir så imponerad av dessa bryggare från staterna.

Flarra som lagrats 3 år i ölkällaren i hovshaga. Doftar otroligt balanserat å fylligt av dadlar å fikon och tång. Satan jävlar vad fyllig och sjukt balanserad smak av dadlar , fikon, hav. Fin rejäl efterbeska . Oerhört god Tänk den dröm att svenska bryggare en dag ska kunna tillverka kvalité i denna klassen. Åh hoppas den dagen kommer

Zlotta (1316) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2016
0.15 l on tap at ’Beertemple’. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-fruity aroma of caramel, red fruits, some raisins and molasses. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel, raisins, prunes, molasses and red fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish with some boozy hints. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very sweet, not that complex but very tasty.

Nocturne (1674) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy red. Ring of head. Big aroma of piney, resinous hops and strawberry jam. Taste seems exactly like the regular version but bigger and more powerful. Retains good drinkability though. Good stuff.

oldrtybastrd (4887) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a darkish red/brown. Aromas of spice, coriander, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol taste to it, mixed with a nice smoky dark fruit. Also has a strong hint of spice.
