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...

Pours medium brown malty aroma. Huge bitter beer, I found myself craving cheese about 1/2 way through to help balance it. For such a big beer I was expecting more complexity. Thick mouth feel and very one dimensional, finishes with bitter hops. Not bad, but not impressed.

2009 Bottle pour. Strong hoppiness that quickly gives way to sweet almost creamy maltiness. Finishes with another blast of hops with alcohol traces mingled in. Kinda makes the tongue tingle. Still developing palate so basic reviews for now. 2 thumbs up. Will be getting another to cellar.

220z bottle, pours a small to average light brown head, body is light cloudy amber orange. Aromas of floral, pine, pear and pineapple. Body is full with soft carbination; slight bitter on the finish ties it together.

Pours a murky orangish-red with a decent off-white head. Aroma is slightly boozy, nuts, dark fruits, brown sugar, and some hops. Bold flavor that kicks you right in the taste buds. Roasted nuts, malts, a hint of sweetness, and a surge of hop bitterness to keep you humble. This beer packs a punch at 11.2 percent and they do not hold back with the flavor profile. There really is not mistaking that you are drinking a very strong beer. Sometimes, that’s exactly what you need though.

Pours much like regular Bastard. Aroma is noticeably maltier. Damn does this smell good. Huge aromas of dark fruit and sugar malts with a lot of citrusy hops to boot. Flavor is much he same with a big hit of malt followed by lots of bitterness. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

Bomber. Red brown color. Smell of caramel, resin, alcohol, vanilla. , Medium bitterness, heavy sweetness. Taste of alcohol, candy and resinous bitterness hops. Some butterscotch and vanilla. Good but not that good.

Aroma: Very malty, caramel, dark fruit. Appearance: Cloudy reddish-brown with a head that all but disappears too quickly without much lacing. Taste: Very carmel malt tasting, pine resin, citrus. Palate: On the flatter side, thick and viscous, very nice long lasting finish. Overall: This is one ’stout, in-your-face’ beer. It’s got to warm up to get it’s full effect. Hides the ABV very well. Awesome beer and a definite treat. If you like Arrogant Bastard than this is a must!

what the arrogance should have been. the higher alcohol works so much better than the lower levels in AB. beautiful nose, rich caramel color and outstanding flavor
