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. íCourse thereís always the masochists...

22oz bottle. Pours a dark, red-hued amber color with a bit of head. It smells like a juniper tree, very hop-dominated with some fruit and alcohol. The taste starts out with malts and fruits and then quickly turns to the hop flavor and alcohol presence. Finishes dry, bitter and earthy. Itís a very thick, complex beer. Far too hop-dominated and bitter for my tastes, but fans of that style will love this beer.

Christmas 2010, 3qt btl. Rated on scene "Almost oakey malty IPA flavour. Positively doubley as good as Arrogant Bastard." I have a bomber bottle in my cellar that Iíll break out soon, but just wanted to get this rating down.

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

Super strong, but very subtle. You would think that a 10% drink would be stronger, but it was excellently balanced.

To make the long story short, this is an over the top, super hoppy version of the Arrogant Bastard. The extreme hoppiness takes this one closer to a barleywine for me. An incredibly smooth brew for 10 percent.

themightyomega (92) - New York, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours red-brown, heavy tan head. Reeks of alcohol and... something... unidentifiable. One sip: GAH!!!! Itís like swallowing a mouthfull of rusty razor blades, complete with noxious bitter aftertaste that we could taste for 20 minutes after one sip. And itís worse when "repeated". Straight down the drain as an offering for the demons of the privy.

exadore (92) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 2, 2007
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.

DuffLover (91) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2006
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 Iím not sure I would get it again.

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.
