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...

Bottle. Pours red-brown, heavy tan head. Reeks of alcohol and... something... unidentifiable. One sip: GAH!!!! It’s like swallowing a mouthfull of rusty razor blades, complete with noxious bitter aftertaste that we could taste for 20 minutes after one sip. And it’s worse when "repeated". Straight down the drain as an offering for the demons of the privy.

Bottle. Poured a dark ruby, almost coke color, with a thin white head. Interesting malt and hop nose that seems well balanced. Flavor is grapefruit, malt and hops, an odd mix. I dont particularly like the citrus flavor, but this is an excellent beer. Finishes sweet, citrusy, and smooth.

Darnk at home in glass out of 22oz bottle. Aroma- not strong. Light florals but nothing distinct. Appearance dark red. Taste-very smooothe with a little hoppiness. Very drinkable. Palate- very clean palate and mouthfeel. Little floral taste as well. Overall- very impressed! Score does not reflect. I would rate total score as 4.4

This is some dank shit. I consider it mothers milk. Strong and in your face with a big nose a full flavor. At 10% this beer can get on quite quick but is still very drinkable. Good combo of hops and malt, very thick beer that punches you in the mouth. Great beer overall. You’re Not Worthy!!!!

Hopgeek (90) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2004
2004 Release. Deep garnet red in color and makes a slight offwhite coloured head. Smell is sweet and rich of roasty malt, thick molasses, caramel and worty. Flavor is also richly sweet, nutty, caramel, molasses, roasty malt, well balanced hop bitterness comes through, alcoholic bite. This one is full bodied, thick and syrupy on the palate, very warming on the way down. This is awesome.

22oz. bottle. Fruity, caramel aroma. Hazy brown/orange color with a thin tan head. Flavor starts very sweet with candy, and fruit and has a nice bitter hop finish. Decently thick palate. A very different brew than what I expected - really surprised me considering Arrogant Bastard is one of my favorites. Not bad, but I’m not sure I would get it again.

luiss (89) - Elmsford, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2007
Wow! this motherload packs some flavor, smell and appearance. Smell is of pinaepple, oaked wood, spiced aged cheese, and toast. Taste is piny, high hoped and bourban flavored with a dry woody taste. The head is thick and packs a tight lacing that last throughout the glass.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Much better than the arrogant bastard. Great hops and alcohol flavors. Pours red with great hops aroma.
