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...

Cloudy amber color, creamy head. From the aroma to the flavor and palate, it's another hop-killer; very well malty. Thanks Philippe (Bov) for sharing this bottle.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2010
Tap at Burp Castle. Pours a beautiful, amber-red with ruby highlights and a firm, white head. Nose is potent with pine and citrus hop aromas. Flavor is deep and layered. At once sweet and bitter, notes of dark fruits, caramel and candy abound. A pretty thick beer, heavy, with mild carbonation. Finish is sticky sweet and somewhat bitter. Super beer.

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2007
Bottle at Chris_O bottlefest 2007. Attractive red/amber colour with lasting cream coloured head. Fresh hop grapefruit aroma. Vanilla, syrupy in mouth and then really aggressive hop on end. It’s unsubtle. I prefered the standard Arrogant Bastard. Sticky. A bit like emery paper over the tongue.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Catch up rating #godknowswhat @Tria, Washington Sq, PHL 30/11/13 - last beer of this particular stateside trip ! Keg - dark amber with a big ole light beige head dress. Nose is candied sugars, red grapefruit, toffee, brown sugars, bitter candied orange peel. hint of liqourice. Taste comprises bitter citrics, candy sugar, grapefruit peel, rich caramel vein running throughout, orange pith, darker warming fruit notes. Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet finale, slightly drying. Decent American strong - the alcohol is pretty well integrated for a double digit monster !

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. A reddish golden beer with a slight haze. Dense, beige head of low height. Quite intense aroma with lots of sweetish maltyness, beefstock, caramel, piney and resiny hops, and some alcohol. Maybe a bit too sweet on the palate, with a lasting alcohol warmth, but there’s enough hops to justice it. Piney, resiny bitterness with a citrusy touch. Sweet and bitter finish. A big, bold beer, but very satisfying. (080811)
