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...

The aroma of this is pungent of oak and whiskey barrels the head is beautiful and the ale itself is dark amber red and the taste is strong and a balanced bitterness with its hop blast also it has strong caramel,oak and leather with a strong ale taste and surprisingly sweet by far my favorite brew it?s a very intense ale i feel like i should be wearing medieval knight armor while drinking it. Definitely should have this with bbq/smoked meats maybe some good pretzels definitely awesome with a grilled burger.

BlackHaddock (3779) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
14th March 2014, large bottle at a barbeque in Newport Beach, bought and took the bottle myself and didn’t share it! Aggressive little bugger isn’t it. Hops full on in the mouth, yet it has a sweeter maltier nose: bitter in flavour with a definite Barley wine undertone. A fine beer in all aspects.

Bomber: Pours reddish-brown, cloudy with a creamy tan head. Caramel, coconut aroma. Flavour is syrupy..bitter fruit... Very thickly malted, caramel, woody bitter. Prominent alcohol burn at the back of the throat. A bit rough around the edges.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 This brew is for those who thought Stone couldn’t improve on their Arrogant Bastard Ale. They can, and they did. This is an absolutely superb beer (by any reckoning).

Got a new TV today. Nothing fancy but when you've eaten ground chuck for almost a decade a flat iron tastes like manna from Heaven.

Flaska hemma. Bärnstensfärgad och lagom grumligt trögflytande med en maltighet och beska. Mycket angenäm liten sak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bacterial (1555) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2014
Hazy dark amber pour on draft at Republic. Thick off white head. Malty nose. Big sweet taste, lots of hops and a big bitterness in the finish. Really nice. Big and kick ass for sure.
