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%.

Had this at a beer tasting. Stone doesn't sell in Illinois but a bottle was brought to this tasting. Not enough to make an good rating but from the two ounces I had it was a treat. Reddish brown with tan head. Fruity, floral aroma. Smooth well-balanced flavor. Wish I had more to taste

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Extreme Beer Fest ’04: Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and malty caramel. Has an awesome amount of hops, and yet a smooth thick malt finish with buttery bitterness. Damn that’s good. I’m proud to have this as my 100th beer. 1/13/08 - 2005 vintage on tap at The Moan and Dove. This beer is as fantastic as ever. Aroma: wow. Taste: super wow.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2010 I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but... This beer is a sweet, murky, disgusting mess. It tastes like someone let a double IPA sit on the shelf for 2 years. Sweet, cloying, ridiculous. There, I said it.

An easy off white head. Sweetish citrus hints in aroma. A slightly sweet butter and light citrus. Apricot? Full and smooth in mouth like a thin syrup. A little lingering bitterness in the long after taste. As the bottle progressed, the bitterness became stronger throughout the experience. It quickly lost the minor butterish taste and gained more of a caramel flavor with a harshness. Left a warm feeling, yet very very little alcohol was tasted.

Brown fire red color. Smells like the regular bastard, but taste, good god. Concentrated hop syrup, so thick, very bitter, with some apricot. Borderline drinkable (like the ruination). Another ridiculous Stone brew that is good but I just didn't enjoy.

Geeze this one is out of control from start to finish. Dark red amber color. Strong scents of malt, caramel, hops and some alcohol. Creamy and full flavored from start to finish. Malt and caramel overwhelm a the mild hop and alcohol prescence. Although the hops come thru in the finish with a nice tinge of bitterness to close things out. Wow! Good stuff.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Amber in coloration, with a frothy cream colored head, The aroma is hoppy, and strong, some citrus hints in the head. The flavor is strong hoppy yet malty, a flavor that leaves your mouth watering, resembles a light barley wine. The alcohol is very cleverly disguised. very well worth the purchase.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2004
Cloudy amber color, creamy head. From the aroma to the flavor and palate, it's another hop-killer; very well malty. Thanks Philippe (Bov) for sharing this bottle.

Bov (9602) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 12, 2004
red-amber colour, few foam, buttery hoppiness, caramel and alcohol, notes of cream and apricot, oily with a deadly excessiv bitterness (yes, I like it !), very malty, very long bitter, buttery and floral finish, a bit disgusting at the end of the glasss - this is big stuff ! Those americans are really crazy (fortunately sometimes in a right way)

2003. Deep red color, little head. Strange nose on it, raisons, hops, malt scents a lot like a Scottish ale. Flavor is of hops, deep scottish ale style malts, carmel, and raisons. Alcohol taste just warming, but it doesn't taste like a 10% beer.
