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%.

Must say I was slightly disappointed. Deep mahogany pour with red highlights. Nose was quite complex, like a barleywine crossed with Celebrator. Cooked vegetables, candied yams, molasses. Taste was much the same, with a big hop character in the middle and a Dry bitter finish. Okay, but overrated?

well worth the kudos. It is a great beer. The aroma is sweet and faint. Thin head, but still a great pour. Dark amber and cloudd in appearance. The taste is the amazing part, though. It is four flavors attacking you at the same time. Ends with the best bitter taste I’ve experienced. Great beer!!!

Wow! what a nice big delicious beer! This one is similar to Arrogant Bastard in many ways. It’s nice and dark, the colors are similar and the flavors share a lot of the same characteristics, but this one actually seems a tad bit mellower to me (had it in 2004) Very good brew, I wish it was avail year-round.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 28, 2005
The aroma and flavor were both full of soury dark fermented fruit, caramel, flowers, and a hint of wood on the nose. The beer poured a brownish red color w/ thin head and medium lacing. The mouthfeel was a light to medium body w/ a creamy smoothness.

A floral aroma surrounds this copper colored ale. The taste is syrupy and sweet like a dessert topping. There is a hint of honey and some tropical fruit iin the brew as well.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2007 Sweet floral aroma, and a beautiful mapley appearance. Nice lingering head. Taste is as expected from aroma, beautiful sweetness with well rounded bitterness, and a mapley finish. ($5/22oz)
