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...

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.

This is some dank shit. I consider it mothers milk. Strong and in your face with a big nose a full flavor. At 10% this beer can get on quite quick but is still very drinkable. Good combo of hops and malt, very thick beer that punches you in the mouth. Great beer overall. You’re Not Worthy!!!!

Wow! this motherload packs some flavor, smell and appearance. Smell is of pinaepple, oaked wood, spiced aged cheese, and toast. Taste is piny, high hoped and bourban flavored with a dry woody taste. The head is thick and packs a tight lacing that last throughout the glass.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Much better than the arrogant bastard. Great hops and alcohol flavors. Pours red with great hops aroma.

On tap at fatheads. Pours a medium copper amber with thin light tan head. Smell is hoppy, with a little caramel. Taste is a lot more hoppy than I thought it would be, some sweet malts on finish. Really drinkable for 11%. On tap is definitely better than bottle. A great hoppy strong ale to judge others by.

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.

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.

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.
