This is just plain a WONDERFUL beer! Huge hop nose! Massive body, great alcholic warmth, yet well balanced by hoppy flavors. Truly the most arrogant beer around!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy dark amber with a off-white head. Aroma is cookies and carmel, heavy grapefruit, and lightly of broth and hints of vinilla. Flavor starts well balanced and moderate, nice malt backbone, carmel and dark fruit, with grapefruit juice again. Alcohol warming in the finish. Medium to full bodied, creamy and a bit oily, lively carbonated.

1pt 6oz single from 6-Pack & Subs, Lancaster, PA...pours hazy deep amber, small off-white head...sweet smell of malts, dark fruits (bit of a musty smell as it warms)...flavor of raisins, licorice, hops, alcohol (grape juice as it warms)...smooth mouthfeel...lots going on here...to me, not as good as the AB and OAB (havenít had the ODB yet) but still, really good.

Despite supposedly being more "evil" than its smaller brother, it is actually much more balanced and better, even if the hops are more assertive. Big thick malty palate that is right at the line between being nice and being syrupy. Loads of American hop aroma and taste, well balanced by carame;ly malt flavors. Nice.

pours a lovely dark mahogany with a white head. has a very robust sweet smell of malt and hops. The taste is very malt forward but then the hops hit you. has a very bitter finish that lingers.

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.

tangy candy like nose, almost peach nose. This has a massive malty sweetness. it has a hint of caramel. The bottom line is this just haves a lot of malt. There is a bitterness at the end but it is not as aggressive as I thought this was going to be. It iis actually more balanced than regular
Arrogant Bastard. I actually like it more than the original.

04í vintage-Such an interesting beer. I used to think it was an Imperial IPA, but it really is an American Strong or Stock ale, so its correctly identified here. Iíd actually like more hop character to come through, but thatís just me. A very nice malt profile and very well integrated with enough hop bitterness to back it up. I hope Iím worthy enough to enjoy it.

Dark amber pour with small head and sticky lace. Astringent aroma. Definite alcohol presence. Good, but not a 100 percentile.

Double Bastard. You evil fucking cunt. Itís a hop monster, itís a malt monster... itís a little sweet, but then it kicks you in the junk for calling it sweet. I love this fucking beer. This is a tough bomber.
