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%.

Light reddish-brown; aroma of dying embers, toffee, cherry cheesecake, earthy hops; this is thick! thick! thick!. Similar flavour profile to Bastard but a lot bigger; dry finish with the highest Lovibond crystal malts involved.

Deep ruby red/copper. Thin head and lace. Nose of complex malts,chocolate,caramel, and slight fruitiness. Very inviting. Medium to almost slightly thick bodied, chewy malt palate, sweet with fruity impressions,along with caramelized brown sugar make a damn tasty,full flavored and rich brew. Then you swallow and the hoppy bitterness explodes in your mouth, drying it and begging you to take another sip of this bad ass MFíer and to do it all over again. Awesome balance. These guys dont play around, I cannot wait to try the ther other offerings. Gusler...thank you my man!

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Sweet and malty nose; very fresh-smelling and inviting. Ruby red color. Huge hop boquet. Smooth & sugary. Strong and rather intensely flavored. Earthy, grassy, warm, wholesome, rounded and complex. Heavy mouthfeel. Shovels of tasty hops... but gentle, in a way. Not overly bitter. 'Different,' but very enjoyable.

The label for this beer is hysterical. It pretty much says you are not worthy of this beer. It is a fine beer that isnít for the íless experiecnedí. Not the beer to give your Bud drinking friends. Great hoppiness, almost a grapefruit-like bitterness.

A strong ale. I only had it off tap, but my impressions are that itís a more refined version of the regular Arrogent Bastard. Slightly less bitter, and sweeter hints of maple.

Wow! This is a great beer, how do they keep making these wonderful beers? Canít wait to get back to Nocal - I have one in the cellar and one day Iím going to invite a bunch of friends (Iím working in Maine, God) and allow them a taste and then finish it myself. This is meant to be shared.

Now if your looking for a beer with a major kick you MUST try this one. Itís strong in content and best of all filled with rich taste. The double isnít around always so pick it up when it is. A must try beer!

I like arrogant bastard much better. Even though the higher alcohol content, its not nearly as good....

Itís Arrogant Bastardís bigger, nastier brother. A massive load of hops balanced with an equitable load of malts. With the 10% ABV, íbastardí is an appropriate term. What differentiates this from Arrogant Bastard most is the texture of it, as itís richer and creamier with the Double. Very nice brew for those who want 22 oz. of it at a time.
