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...

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

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.

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.

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.

HopHeadinAZ (180) - Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2007
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.

Very nice bottle - perfect!!!! A red cloudy beer with a beige nice head, malty, light bitter, oily, full body, good balance, long finish, yeast dominated, compared with a Belgian beer very perfect, (I have 0.65l bottle which is bottled on 10/15/15)

It’s better than the bastard which is saying something. Only topped by Stone’s standard IPA in my opinion.

Beautiful copper pour. Nice and clear with lots of tiny bubbles which rise to the thick white head. Sweet aroma of malt, fresh earth, hay, and booze. Thick mouthfeel. Flavor of sweet malt, pineapple, pine needles, grass with a giant hop punch in the mouth. Booze finish. I'm hardly worthy... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a pint glass at a local bar. Would have preferred a snifter. Aroma is fairly non distinct because of this. Pours a dark ale color. Flavor is stupendous. Malts and a caramel finish. Palate is long lasting with lots of malt and caramel. Very flavorful beer!
