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...

Zlotta (1905) - Hagen, GERMANY - APR 14, 2016
0.15 l on tap at ’Beertemple’. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-fruity aroma of caramel, red fruits, some raisins and molasses. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel, raisins, prunes, molasses and red fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish with some boozy hints. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very sweet, not that complex but very tasty.

Nocturne (1769) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy red. Ring of head. Big aroma of piney, resinous hops and strawberry jam. Taste seems exactly like the regular version but bigger and more powerful. Retains good drinkability though. Good stuff.

oldrtybastrd (5000) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a darkish red/brown. Aromas of spice, coriander, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol taste to it, mixed with a nice smoky dark fruit. Also has a strong hint of spice.

Dark brown tan, cloudy, light tan head. Some alcohol on the nose, dark honey, light spice, coriander. Light bitterness, quite sweet. Upfront alcohol, medium body, oily. Low carbonation. Pretty great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KoNrRiI (1177) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - APR 13, 2016
0.1 draft. A hazy, dark brown color with a nice, tanned head. Aroma of grapes, vanilla, wine, bourbon, dried fruits, and quite some caramel. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, resembles a barley wine to an extent. A full body, a smooth texture, and a below-average carbonation. Finish is long, wood and caramel are still prominent, and the barley wine comparison is still hard to get rid of. Overall the beer is quite simply pleasing, worth recommending.

KW92 (1160) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 12, 2016
Pompa w Jabeerwocky
WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, zamglone. Piana niska, drobna.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Miks karmelu, owoców, cytrusów i ziół.
SMAK: Półwytrawne. Z początku bardzo gorzkie grejpfrutowe, po chwili do głosu dochodzi przypalony karmel i alkohol. Goryczka wysoka, garbnikowa, zalegająca. Ziołowo-karmowy posmak. Oleiste, ale nie gładkie. Jak na 11% alkohol jest bardzo dobrze wkomponowany w całość.
OGÓLNIE: Bardzo dawno nie piłem tak goryczkowego piwa z równie przyjemna karmelowo- ziołową kontrą.

adasko (1820) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 10, 2016
Tap na BGM. Piwo zdecydowanie robi robotę. Ciężkie, gęste, niemal oleiste. Masa charakteru słodowego, spora goryczka w posmaku. Świetna sprawa.

craftbeersweden (559) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Clear, dark amber to red color with a one finger high, beige head. Nice lacing on the glass.

Nose: Hops! Caramel malt, butterscotch, dried fruit, nutmeg, fudge, vanilla, plum and raisin. A bit of orange and citrus there to.
Taste: A lot of malt, grape, orange zest, pine, grass, raisin and caramel.
Mouthfeel: Full body. Oily and smooth. Medium carbonation. Dry and bitter ending.
