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%.

Amazing beer! First taste is a caramel with a hop finish! Color is a brown reddish. Smell is floral. If you want a beer with lots of character this is it!

Poured bright reddish amber with a tan head. Aroma of dense, concentrated berries, floral hops and caramel malt. Full body, flavour is sweet berries, toffee, moderately bitter hops.

KKURO (5) - JAPAN - APR 12, 2015 does not count
When the aroma which makes pear and melon remember is accepted, the sweetness of the malt stands out at the beginning, but mellow sweetness and moist bitterness follow about a tongue after that. Indeed, for rate beer, the beer for which a high score is taken. It's wonderful!

zimbo (653) - SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2015
Freshness makes all the difference here and this is a huge improve from my last bottlem. Signature Stone rawness with much delectable twisted rubber hop bitterness throughout the length. Deep glowing hazy reddish brown. Limited head. A glorious blow to the head.

Lagerboy (1478) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
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)

codfishh (132) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2015
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.

dlovell2 (1061) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2015
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.

One of my favorites. Lives up to the billing ten fold, wish I could find more of the bba aged version...

IPagan5 (101) - San Marcos, California, USA - MAR 30, 2015
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
