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...

Scipio's rating

Scipio (714) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Pours a dark, clear amber with a medium sized beige head that is long lasting. The aroma is heavy on caramel malt along with some citrus undertones of grapefruit and mango. I get some fig and a bit of pine as well. The taste contains much of the caramel, but it is challenged in flavor with a lot of pine. Citrus is still noticeable, and it goes along with a resin and alcohol taste as well. Bitter throughout, kind of sweet, with a piney aftertaste. Full bodied with a very thick texture. The alcohol content is apparent right away in this one. I like this quite a bit, but I think its something that you should be a bit wary of.

Scouser (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Smells of malt and bubble gum, not bad. Good dark amber copper color with a little beige head and no lacing. Tastes sweet malt and bubble gum. A nice beer.

ElCapitan22 (113) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Pours a dark copper color with some head retention and lacing. Tastes and smells like a sweet red. Kind of reminds me of fruit stripe gum. Quite a pleasant drink, but one that will knock you on your ass. Quite malty as well.

This one is very hefty. Good notes of caramel and oak. Definitely a sipper. Was a little disappointed with this one.

Pretty brown Orange with khaki head. Pine, fruit, wood. Malt, caramel, more wood and pine in taste. Slightly sweet and boozy. Nice bitter and floral finish. Good stuff.

BeerFunGuy (711) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Beautiful dark amber hue make this beer look like some I will love. It has a strong malt aroma a big taste upfront which grows into a powerful rich lasting flavor. Not for the timid that is for sure. It leaves a taste on you tongue which won't let you forget about that next sip and near forces you to bring that glass to you lips or open that second bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sparf (122) - Östersund, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Mycket komplex och tät arom som nästan gör det svårt att identifiera komponenterna. Plommon i sherry, lätt citrusartad beska, torkade aprikoser, honungsmelon och över allting en flyktig alkohol. Vacker bärnstensbrun färg och ett bra skum men med kort halveringstid och dåliga lämningar. Även smaken är tät och komplex. Kraftig beska som balanserar de söta aromerna. Här finns tall, karamell, övermogen citron. Stor kropp och en trevligt livlig kolsyra. I eftersmaken finns en fudgeartad maltighet och så hänger en djup beska kvar riktigt länge. Gediget helgjuten produkt.

ROGUE (2120) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 13, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a two finger off-white head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is malt forward with sweet and bready malts, raisins, overripe orange, and booze. Taste is very smooth with caramel, bready malts, some alcohol heat, cherries, raisins, and figs, along with burnt toast and roasted malt. The boozy heat hides beneath the hop bitterness up front but slowly intensifies through the middle to the end. Finishes with a soft, slightly dry feel with lingering pine hop bitterness and lots of boozy heat.

liquidhedonism (121) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Aroma: boozy, woody, and very malty, with hints of toffee. Taste/Palate: thick, crisp, and very sweet; finishes with a long bitterness. Incredible and over-the-top hop/malt balance. Another perfect beer from Stone!

Gerbeer (1943) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
On tap. Pours a dark reddish brown with moderate head. Light aromas of dark sweet fruit, caramel, and sweet malts. Flavors are same with a big dose of bitter dry fruity hops. Good but over rated.
