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...

Ungstrup (34308) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2004
A red beer with a small disappering head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of berries. The flavor is great; totally dominated by hops but combined with berries and roasted notes (chocolate?). A wonderful beer. Thanks to Mads Berg for sharing this.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2008
Bottled@Akkurat. Deep murky copper coloured with small beige head, that stays for quite a while. Aroma is full of fruits, wood, nectar and mild notes of syrupy sweetness as well as some notes of alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same along with some vanilla and mild plummy notes too. Rather sweet for most of the part, but also some bittering notes preventing the sweetness to totally take over. Really pleasant!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 14, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Hazy, orangey brown with a dense, stable, beige head that leaves some laces. Fat aroma of caramel and overripe fruit. Fairly full body with lots of sweet caramel, overripe fruit and cinnamon. A fairly hoppy finish. Lovely. 030407

omhper (23423) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2004 Bottled, thanks hopsrus!! Deep red, rich head. Soapy balsamic grapefruit aroma. Sweet and syrupy with soft mouthfeel and cookie malt flavuor. The oiliness and bitterness casued by an extreme amount of hops are being balanced by a huge body and loads of alcohol, but the sweetness is shining through a little, detracting from the perfect hop juice image.

anders37 (22977) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear red color with an off-white head. Sweet malty hoppy aroma with some hints of citrus and caramel. Dry malty bitter flavor with lots of hoppy hints and also citrus hints. Slightly sweetish malty and bitter finish with a long hoppy aftertaste.

Very full on Barleywine. Immediate malt with a ’wee heavy’ chocolate profile. Leads quickly in to an almost salty hop finish. Despite the extremes this beer never loses control and holds together well.
