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%.

Ah, Stone descriptions: the Steely Dan liner notes of beer.

Tap. Orangish amber with a small pale beige head that lasts well. Aroma of very ripe apricots, vanilla, mandarins, grapefruit. Just short of syrupy. Sweet hay and apricot, grapefruit, pine, kumquat, a little pepper. Main finish is brief, then grapefruit and pine linger. Compressed flavours but punchy hops - sweetness doesn’t really get in the way. Unsubtle but good.

Bottle. Dark clear ruby with a 1 finger off white head. Aroma is melted Jolly Rancher, burnt caramel and slightly plasticky. Taste follows suit but adds some floral hops and slight alcohol burn. Caramel/butterscotch takes center stage. Big sticky mouthfeel. Certainly big.

Deep red-Brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma is citrus, pine, caramel. You can taste the alcohol from the first sip. Also has a citrusi, hoppy flavor with a sweet hint. Did not like it because Of the alcohol taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oh! What a knockout. Sturdy body, heaps of malt and hops and flavor, deep steady aroma underlined with enough alcohol to give justice to every nuance. Warming, cherishing, smooth yet harsh, rich. Yes - rich. If there is any flaw it should perhaps have been a tine bit less sweet. One of the best beers I’ve made the aquintance with.

This is a hell of a beer. It has a great warming effect without being boozy. Wonderful bitter after taste makes you crave more.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (94:-). Fruktig och humlig, ganska söt, karamell, alkoholvärmande, medelfyllig till fyllig. Avslutningen är fruktig och ganska torr med en vis alkoholvärme.

Pours a ruby color with a off white head. The aroma is sweet and full of fruits, biscuit, earth and sugar. And the flavors really hits me, pine, grapefruit, caramel malts and raisins.

Kaatuu lasiin mahonginruskeana ja valoa läpäisevänä, vaahdon ollessa keskikokoinen. Hajussa on hyvin vahvasti karamellia, jota tukemassa humaloinnin havuisuus, sitrus ja ruoho. Alla on vielä hieman vohvelimaisuutta. Todella tuhdissa maussa on vahvimmin jälleen karamellista mallasta, jota tukee puu, sitrus ja maamaisuus sekä lievä kukkaisuus. Suutuntuma on täysin katkeroiden hallitsema, taittuen jopa kitkerän puolelle. Olut kuivattaa suuta, kuten odotettuakin, vaikka maku tuntuu alkuun hyvin makealta. En olisi ikinä uskonut, että näin vahvalla mallasrungolla varustetulla oluella humalointia voisi olla liikaa, mutta nyt se tapahtui. Omasta mielestä tämä oli pahasti epätasapainossa ja sellainen nautiskeltavuus hävisi, mitä itse toivon noin 11% oluelta. Huonoin Stonen tuotos toistaiseksi, vaikka saikin ihan OK pisteet.

Amazing brew. Aroma is surprisingly very sweet. Drinking straight from the deuce-deuce so the bottle looks nice. Flavorful with a very bitter finish. Nice!
