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%.

Double Arrogant Bastard, a.k.a. ’Palate Destroyer.’ This is a very serious beer... a 10% ABV barleywine style ale. The nose is sugary, featuring some toffee scents and some slightly floral and woody notes. This thick, almost viscous ale enters with sweetness as it first touches the tongue, but then attacks the palate with an intense bitterness. Finish is long, with a sustained bitter attack. IBU around 75-80 according to the brewer.

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Pours a really nice deep amber color. Smell doesn’t give enough away of the flavor. Taste is a very sweet, caramel malt and finishes up with a strong hop bitterness. Hops are piney and grapefruity, mouthfeel is excellent ant the bitterness is perfect. Tons of tropical fruit and citrus in this beer, nice compliment to the malt sweetness. SOOOOLIIIIIDDDD

Fantastic molasses and brown sugar sweetness that elevates it above the standard Arrogant Bastard.

Wow, what a beer. Pours a mediun brown with small amount of lacing. Taste is sweet and hoppy with a hint of caramel. Very complex. Well done stone.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - NOV 9, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 Dark but glowing red-amber pour with a thin off-white head. Huge caramel malt aroma laced with fragrant hop notes. Taste is thick with spicy hops, candied ginger, preserved citrus rind, all carried by a sweet malt-wave. A moderately ’heavy’ mouthfeel carries the bold flavors beautifully, and the hop onslaught cuts the sweetness for a nice, dry, bitter finish.

I was a bit confused by this beer. I really expected an amped up wersion of Arrogant Bastard, as suggested by the Commercial Description. Thsi was more of a Barley wine than IIPA. Teh beer was deep red and very malty. Good deal of hops left little doubt that this was a Stone brew. Caramel, toffee and cocoa predominate. Some fruity notes also. Pretty good.

Bottle. A heavy malty character with a mild hop profile. A light head with a heavy malt and roasted barley finish.
