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%.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - APR 3, 2013
Pours a foggy burnt amber, with half a finger of blond white head, of which leaves a fair amount of lacing. Nose is of nutty grains, semisweet malts, and faint juniper - little to no beta acids. Taste starts with sweet, caramel malts, and pine nuts, followed by a bouquet of crisp, earthy, floral hops, with a faint pine-wood finish. Very high alpha acid on the finish also. The 11% ABV is completely covered. Body is full, and sticky.

dunn4040 (129) - Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Pours a murky orangish-red with a decent off-white head. Aroma is slightly boozy, nuts, dark fruits, brown sugar, and some hops. Bold flavor that kicks you right in the taste buds. Roasted nuts, malts, a hint of sweetness, and a surge of hop bitterness to keep you humble. This beer packs a punch at 11.2 percent and they do not hold back with the flavor profile. There really is not mistaking that you are drinking a very strong beer. Sometimes, that’s exactly what you need though.

Dark malts and caramel for aroma. Pretty bitter bite than increases and then starts to calm on the palate. Leaves a bitter taste in the back of your mouth. I would get it again although, at 11.2%, I wouldn't have too many ;) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zmanzorro (128) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Poured from bottle into a large bomber glass. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a nice thick yellowish-tan head that leaves behind some lacing. Aroma is extremely hoppy. Taste is full burst of hops, with some sweet maltiness, and a lingering taste of alcohol. Slightly less than average carbonation, but leaves the palate cleanly. Wonderfully crafted big beer.

alcoholica (128) - Dublin, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Red in color Small head. Some many different aromas that it is hard to pinpoint what they are. Very powerful beer 3 of the 25 oz. beers could knock you on your ass. Extremely malty and sweet with a very bitter bite. This is one hell of a beer.

Erdinger2003 (127) - West Union, Iowa, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Head pours out a little thin and there’s a little bit of lacing, but it’s not a real ring. Smell is very good. Sweet, and very hoppy...grapefruity hops, Stone hops ;) Smell has some sweet brown sugar. A blast of floral grapefruity hops that have really great bitterness.

RedXIII (127) - Powell, Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2008
This beer is phenomenal, plain and simple. Perfect cloudy color of amber and caramel with a ruby glow. Huge flavor of floral hops, alcohol, caramel malt, with a bitter-sweet, but smooth finish. Aroma matches much of the flavor with a bit of an earthy sweet smell. Sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. Excellent.

DRY BEER. I had a PBR after drinking just one of these and I couldn’t taste anything at all. Not for the weak.

BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 16, 2008
22 Oz Bottle. Poured a somewhat cloudy amber with a small tan head. The aroma was compelling and the taste did not disappoint. This is a big bold ale which doesnt rely on a lot of fruity or chocolate notes to get the job done. Stoneworthy!
