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...

Pours medium brown malty aroma. Huge bitter beer, I found myself craving cheese about 1/2 way through to help balance it. For such a big beer I was expecting more complexity. Thick mouth feel and very one dimensional, finishes with bitter hops. Not bad, but not impressed.

Pours a hazy orange brown with a 1/2 finger. Aroma is a carmely sweetness. Taste is very sweet but very balanced with a nice bitterness. Damn smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2009 Bottle pour. Strong hoppiness that quickly gives way to sweet almost creamy maltiness. Finishes with another blast of hops with alcohol traces mingled in. Kinda makes the tongue tingle. Still developing palate so basic reviews for now. 2 thumbs up. Will be getting another to cellar.

On tap. Dark amber with small head. At first taste it is sharp hops which then smooths out across with an earthy malt flavor that also carries a taste of alcohol. A pleasant albeit complex sipper.

220z bottle, pours a small to average light brown head, body is light cloudy amber orange. Aromas of floral, pine, pear and pineapple. Body is full with soft carbination; slight bitter on the finish ties it together.

Not sure that this really deserves the 100 rating. It’s very tasty, with big caramel bread malt flavor, but unlike most other Stone brews, there is not much hops in evidence. The high alcohol content is evident in the mouth feel!

Pours a ruby color with a off white head. The aroma is sweet and full of fruits, biscuit, earth and sugar. And the flavors really hits me, pine, grapefruit, caramel malts and raisins.

Pours much like regular Bastard. Aroma is noticeably maltier. Damn does this smell good. Huge aromas of dark fruit and sugar malts with a lot of citrusy hops to boot. Flavor is much he same with a big hit of malt followed by lots of bitterness. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Medium bodied and very drinkable.
