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%.

750ml. dark brown syrup appearence. nice tan head. very strong malt aroma, with sweetness. heavy malt and alcohol upfront, with minimal hops in finish. nice warming affect after 4-5 sips. a bit sweet to me this time..I will definitely revisit this one again.

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.

Arayaga2 (1902) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2005
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)

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2005 oh Stone, you’ve done it again. This is a great stronger and fuller version of arrogant bastard ale. Has similar floral aroma. with a slightly more alcohol flavor and after taste. beautiful deep amber/ cherry color. Great combo of hops and malts. only complaint is head could be longer lasting. Try this if you find it.

ian2000gsxr (69) - USA - MAR 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2005 dark brown wtht hints of red... strong hoppy aroma with a sweetness..taste is initially very sweet and then transitions into strong hop bitterness.. lingering aftertastes. warming of the chest from the alcohol. a stronger AB. very good and as expected my friend who usually drinks coors light didn’t like it at all. his loss!

MolsonMan (58) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Pours a dark muddy brown. Alcohol is not very well masked in this beer. I was very disappointed in the overall performance of this. Then again I found the case against the back wall, buried at my local beer distributor. Warm case too. Wonder how long it was sitting?

A great beer, but I found it was actually less enjoyable than arrogant bastard. The greater amount of malt and higher alcohol eclipsed the hoppiness that made arrogant bastard so enjoyable. I felt the alcohol was pretty poorly masked as well. The high IBUs are still very apparent in the aftertaste, when your mouth kind of feels ravaged.
