4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Bottled 660ml (Beer Hunters, 2011 release)
Ruby-brown color, tiny off-white head. Dark bready, citrusy, hoppy, salty and salt licorice aroma. Medium to full bodied. Licoricey, salty, bready flavor. Then excessive bitterness, spices and citrus in the aftertaste. Ultimate bitterness. For slow drinking.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light reddish-brown; aroma of dying embers, toffee, cherry cheesecake, earthy hops; this is thick! thick! thick!. Similar flavour profile to Bastard but a lot bigger; dry finish with the highest Lovibond crystal malts involved.
