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%.

not for the faint at heart, ruby/brown body with a thin slightly laced white head, alcohol is upfront, very warming, huge mouth presence, roasty, hardcore to the last drop, piney-dry finish.

Meaty aroma. big malt but I donít know how to describe. Hoppy, smoke (?) maltalcoholhop bomb. Donít know if I could drink a lot but a little is good. Tingly alcohol finish. Fruity, apples, brown sugar.

I was in over my head. 2 on one is never good odds, what was I thinking? Itís likely that I wasnít thinking at all. You slip one, the other is waiting to plant one on your jaw. Best you can do is run. But Iím too much of a coward for all of that... much more comfortable to sit here and take my beating. It has to stop eventually, doesnít it?

From a 22 ounce bottle - This is a perfect beer... it poured a dark mahogeny color with a low, fine tan head and an exileratingly spicy boquet. With a full, round mouthfeel and a lasting, complex palate. Damn it, this was worth the $4.99 a bottle price!

bottle from Tchrome, thanks a lot man. pours a luscious red with a lingering tan head. aroma is fruity and sweet with an alcohol and hop touch, my esteemed colleague Lumpy says it is cantaloup and i agree. taste is dark fruits and joy, i detect grape, citrus, caramel, chewy earth notes, sweet malt is present but this is a celebration of hops first and foremost. alcohol finish that makes me enjoy the flavors even more. damn this is tasty, i want, no, i need more.

Bottle. Nose smells strongly of Pecos cantaloupe. Flavor is amazing-first and foremost it is bitter on the finish. Now, having said that, there are so many freakní flavors going on here that I couldnít even begin to describe: hops, sweetness that is not over powering, fresh fruit, apple, citrus, burbon/wood, and alcohol. Wow. I like this a whole lot more than I was expecting. This is outstanding. A hop headís dream.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 2004 bottle over a year old. This has mellowed so well, the alcohol bite is gone and itís so pleasant to drink.

This years release was much better than last years in my opinion. But then again, this beer is never a let down. Tons of thick sweet malt in the aroma, citrus fruit, pineapple, and a enough hops to satisfy even the craziest hop head. Pours blood red with a light tan head, looks amazing in any glass. Taste has a powerful malt kick, a bit toasty and fruity, then a big blast of hops to balance this monster out. Very crisp and dry finish.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2004
mmmmmm. tasty. an almost sweet, but hoppy smell. not so sweet on the palate, but tasty. a strong complexity, with some maltiness, hoppiness, and a pleasant alchoholliness. a beer iíll come back to.
