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...

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2004 Split a 3 Litre bottle with some friends. One beer everyone should try. Seems more like a barleywine...

Another winner from Stone. Pours a ruby red with a tan head that dissipates to a thin layer of bubbles. Aroma is caramel malt, with, of course, boatloads of hops. Flavor is a bit like Oaked AB, but I think there is a heavier malt flavor to this one. Hops are obviously American flavors... grapefruit, some pine. I’m not sure what I like better, Stone beers, or the insults they print on the bottle.

2007 Bottle, aged one year. Pours a dark murky reddish body with a loose off white, almost tan, head. Huge vineous alcohol scent with sweet sticky bready notes beyond what must have been a hop overload. Sensation is still hot on the pallate with lots of alcohol soak and dry puckering bitterness. It feels disorganized on my pallate like the malts are all boozed up and don’t know how to act. Flavors are deep and complex with citrusy hops, caramel malts, boozey vodka like alcohol notes, and some sweet woody malts. Still not sure what to make of this one, but I know not to mess with it.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2004 Wow, what an ale! I generally enjoy Stone products a great deal, and my first encounter with the infamous Double Bastard was definitely satisfying. If you like strong, "hopped up" ales, you must try this once. Their label's blatant arrogance is justly backed-up by the quality of the bottle's contents. This is one wonderful, delicious, fun beer. The alcohol is omnipresent, as is the hoppiness that softens up a bit as you sip and allow the beer to warm up a little. I've tried this one several times now, and keep wanting to try it a little warmer than frigid, but I'm always too impatient to let it sit unrefrigerated.

multiple glasses froma 3Liter bottle the aroma is very sweet, hoppy and has lots of oily scented citrus notes, the head is huge and tan, a very ruby copper color, the flavor was very closely to Old Guardian, very hoppy and sweet, nice and crisp but leaves a syrupy sweet coating to the tongue

Bomber from my local. Pours a rusty brown with a minimal head that recedes quickly. Aroma isn’t very strong, picked up some citrusy hops but that was about it. Hops dominate this big guy but also has a nice malt backbone with a bit of pepper at the end. Lemon and alcohol linger through the finish but it’s not overwhelming. Good shit.

Wow. Without question the strongest, angriest, beer I’ve ever tasted. I had been waiting on this one for a while since I’m from a backward state when it comes to "malted beverages." It’s piney, citrus-y, hoppy, bitter, and was thoroughly enjoyed with a bowl of chili (the first time). Color was deep gold, head was light and dissipated moderately. Even as an IPA lover, this one wouldn’t be a daily drinker -- more of a special occasion one to pull out.

A lot more malt flavor than I was expecting. Great hops though. A little thick for me as well.

22oz Bottle: 2007 Release, Pours a hazy dark copper with a small but lingering tan head. The nose is sweet with some caramel but citrusy hops are very noticeable. The taste is malt driven which surprised me based on the aroma. Alcohol shows itself in the taste and finish. The mouth feel is medium to heavy. Some lingering bitterness on the finish as well. I think this beer improves with age. But I still remember more from it when it was fresh.

The angry big brother of stone’s arrogant bastard. Pours out dark with a good head. This beer is fairly much the same idea as arrogant with some extra alcohol taste. The taste of the alcohol seems to calm down the overwhelming taste of the brew a bit, giving it a more refined feel than arrogant.
