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%.

Deep copper, very yeasty, no head, strong lacing, sweet, flowers and alcoholic, candy sugar, intensely sweet on the palate with a long lingering harsh and strong bitterness, almost medical in its bitterness

22oz bottle. Color: burnt orange. Nose: boozy, huge malt backbone. Palate: hoppy, malty, finishes fruity and drying booze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 9-16-13 Amazing raisiny brown sugar aroma. Thick mouthfeel with a hoppy finish. Phenomenal beer that tastes like a well-balanced barleywine ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a hell of a beer. It has a great warming effect without being boozy. Wonderful bitter after taste makes you crave more.

Words cannot describe this beer. They say that Ruination will ruin your palate, but this is the one that will ruin you. Not much head, beautiful clear dark amber pour. Aroma isn't crazy, but the beer itself is super aggressive, as you'd expect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Inviting sweet aroma.
Very thirst quenching, caramel and sweet malt.
Hops not in the forefront, with a slightly bitter finish.
Sessionable, but with that ABV (that you don’t taste!) it would slow you down :)

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2002
This is one intense beer! Lives up to the warning and is twice the bastard of the original...Deep glowing red, complex aroma floral, fruity, spicey, sit down before you take a sip, flavor is amazing, Sweet malty ness balances the tons if hops added givng this beer a spicey sweet flavor, hints of pineapple/grapefruit in finish. Complex and not for the daliy bud drinker!

Coper colored with white head. Citrus aroma. Smooth taste with hop bitterness initially, followed by a malty finish. Great beer. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Snoop59 (105) - Penn Run, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass. Pours an opaque, amber-brown color with a foamy off-white head that diminishes to a thin layer but lasts throughout. Good lacing. Aroma is a strong malty sweetness, some caramel, and noticeably hoppy. Flavor starts off with a strong, sweet caramel maltiness followed by a grapefruity hop bitterness that carries long into the finish. Spicy. Slightly warm. Very full bodied..
