Not sure that this really deserves the 100 rating. Itís 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.

Nice red color with a big head a nice lacing. My biggest complaint about this beer is that it has a bitter/boozy after taste that sticks around. But it has a wonderful malt presence

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Very malty, caramel, dark fruit. Appearance: Cloudy reddish-brown with a head that all but disappears too quickly without much lacing. Taste: Very carmel malt tasting, pine resin, citrus. Palate: On the flatter side, thick and viscous, very nice long lasting finish. Overall: This is one ístout, in-your-faceí beer. Itís got to warm up to get itís full effect. Hides the ABV very well. Awesome beer and a definite treat. If you like Arrogant Bastard than this is a must!

what the arrogance should have been. the higher alcohol works so much better than the lower levels in AB. beautiful nose, rich caramel color and outstanding flavor
