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...

Bomber, 2013 release. Clear deeper red copper, fine firmer lasting tan foam. Alcohol infused version of the prefered original, more like an intense barley wine. Average carbonation, full bodied, aggressively hopped. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

Pours a hazy copper creamy white head, aroma is toasted bread and some caramel, low hop aroma. Taste has lots of rich breast malty some pumpernickel and some caramel, medium to low bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Reminds me a lot of a doppelbock. Medium body medium carbonation.

My second venture into my Bastard Box. Pours dark copper with a thin off white head. Big sweet caramel malt aroma with pineapple and grapefruit. Starts with citrus hop forward flavor followed by big caramel malt and toffee that balances out the hops. Then the bastard comes out and you are hit in the tongue with huge hops. Big orange and bitter grapefruit finish. Leaves your tongue tingling.

Massive malt and hop bomb. So much for the palate after this, huge citrus hop aroma and flavor. Big malty aroma as well. Big malty taste, well balanced hugeness. Some alcohol, enjoyable. Only need one 22 oz bomber

PRELUDE = I am not a hophead... I prefer this over the Arrogant Bastard. Still has a ton of aggressive hops that are up front and in your face. The balance however made this beer beer drinkable while staying true to being a Bastard. Maybe it was the higher abv, I don’t know. Again while not really what i prefer to drink, it was a good experience. Can really see why people who like this type of beer would love this.

alkolas510 (960) - Vänersborg, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2015
Kopparfärgad klar med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mycket karamellmalt, lite humle och ganska mycket beska på slutet med lite alkoholsmak. Som en riktig bra barleywine

Karamellfärgad. Doft av karamell & torkad frukt såsom aprikos. Fantastisk sötig karamellhet, torkad frukt, balanserad, fyllig med en fantastisk bitter slät avslutning. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glory be to the bastard king. While not a beer in the regular sense of the word, this is pure liquid gold. Fruity without being sweet, heavily bitter without the soap and perfume, pleasantly chest warming without the residual taste of alcohol. If it just looked a wee bit better in the glass this would be close to the perfect beverage.
