COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

Red in color Small head. Some many different aromas that it is hard to pinpoint what they are. Very powerful beer 3 of the 25 oz. beers could knock you on your ass. Extremely malty and sweet with a very bitter bite. This is one hell of a beer.

Head pours out a little thin and there’s a little bit of lacing, but it’s not a real ring. Smell is very good. Sweet, and very hoppy...grapefruity hops, Stone hops ;) Smell has some sweet brown sugar. A blast of floral grapefruity hops that have really great bitterness.

This beer is phenomenal, plain and simple. Perfect cloudy color of amber and caramel with a ruby glow. Huge flavor of floral hops, alcohol, caramel malt, with a bitter-sweet, but smooth finish. Aroma matches much of the flavor with a bit of an earthy sweet smell. Sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. Excellent.

Amber colored beer with white head. Strong hoppy flavor that is well balanced with the overall malt. The alcohol flavor is a bit strong at first but tapers away. It is a great beer and I think I prefer it to regular Arrogant Bastard. I just couldn’t drink it every day at 10%. I look forward to Double AB every year!!

22 Oz Bottle. Poured a somewhat cloudy amber with a small tan head. The aroma was compelling and the taste did not disappoint. This is a big bold ale which doesnt rely on a lot of fruity or chocolate notes to get the job done. Stoneworthy!

Not a big fan of double bastard. One AB is enough let alone double . Has a big double alcohol taste for it being 10%. I have had double beers that are 10% and I couldn’t tell at all. Not so with this. It’s just not a very enjoyable double drink. Double the arrogance. Double the terribleness. Double your pleasure. Double your fun. Try it all with Double mint...Gum... eh never mind.

Poured a very dark with light head. It smelled very strongly of hops. It felt slightly bitter with minimal bubbles in his mouth and tasted very hoppy yet smooth. It wasn’t quite as amazingly smooth as the regular Arrogant Bastard, but it was close. Still remained pretty drinkable despite how heavy and high in alcohol it was. Good, but still liked the original Bastard the best.

Deep Red Heavy Caramel, One finger tan head clinged to glass rocky, Heavy palate rich malty flavor. Sipping brew. more malt than hops but still plenty of hops due to heavy malts. Only could do one.

Bottle: poured probably as nice as any beer I have see. A reddish brown copper color with a nice creamy vanilla head that was most presentable. Flavor was mostly bitter alcohol that lasted throughout. The aroma was sweet. Thanks to Mrs.600ish Edden for the treat, don’t know if I was worthy of such a beer at such an early stage, however I think I proved them wrong. Only one regret, has to be drank with someone whom you enjoy hanging with. I did a George Thorogood.

Poured thick, dark amber-red, rich creamy head. Aroma of sweet malts, a bit of citrus. A bit stringent in the mouth, alcohol too. Pure hops all the way through the taste...no...wait...some uncharacteristic (and unrecognizable) sweet comes through as well. A difficult beer to have more than one at a time, but quite tasty.
