3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: poured probably as nice as any beer I have see. A reddish brown copper color with a nice creamy vanilla head that was most presentable. Flavor was mostly bitter alcohol that lasted throughout. The aroma was sweet. Thanks to Mrs.600ish Edden for the treat, donít know if I was worthy of such a beer at such an early stage, however I think I proved them wrong. Only one regret, has to be drank with someone whom you enjoy hanging with. I did a George Thorogood.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not a big fan of double bastard. One AB is enough let alone double . Has a big double alcohol taste for it being 10%. I have had double beers that are 10% and I couldnít tell at all. Not so with this. Itís just not a very enjoyable double drink. Double the arrogance. Double the terribleness.
Double your pleasure. Double your fun. Try it all with Double mint...Gum... eh never mind.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a very dark with light head. It smelled very strongly of hops. It felt slightly bitter with minimal bubbles in his mouth and tasted very hoppy yet smooth. It wasnít quite as amazingly smooth as the regular Arrogant Bastard, but it was close. Still remained pretty drinkable despite how heavy and high in alcohol it was. Good, but still liked the original Bastard the best.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured thick, dark amber-red, rich creamy head. Aroma of sweet malts, a bit of citrus. A bit stringent in the mouth, alcohol too. Pure hops all the way through the taste...no...wait...some uncharacteristic (and unrecognizable) sweet comes through as well. A difficult beer to have more than one at a time, but quite tasty.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz Bottle, with a 14 oz pour into a snifter. Pours reddish brown with a nice head that lingers around for quite some time. Aroma was at first nothing but hops with some sweetness, perhaps caramel? First taste was very similar with a very hoppy finish. Very easy to drink. As I continued to drink I could definitely pick up some other sweet flavors, really couldnít pinpoint what exactly they were though. All in all though, an amazing beer that does not seem to be rocking the high abv it has.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours with lots of soapy foam head. Actually smells sweet to me. Taste is very malty with bitter and caramel on the end. This one starts off too sweet and malty for me but then the bitterness kicks in a good way with a twinge of caramel on the end which is strange but good too.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into pint glass, Dark amber to ruby color, heavy with generation of a small amount of off white head. Nose of candied fruit and malt. Initial flavors of alcohol and buttery hops, turning malty/sweet and finishing with a slightly bitter hoppiness. Very good, perhaps much better with age.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a murky copper. Off-white head. Smells mostly of dark fruits like plum and fig, dark sugar. Strong but smooth. Earthy, nutty (?) Alcohol prevalent but warming. Really nice. Iíve had this before but not for a long while. I wonder why I donít drink it more often? Could be new addition to cold weather quaffables. I still wonder if Iím worthy?
