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. íCourse thereís always the masochists...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

Appearance is amber with white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and prune. Taste is very bitter, behind the aggressive bitterness thereís a fruity and sweet taste of prunes, caramel, toffee and raisins. Overall a nice beer thatís, in my opinion, a bit to aggressive in itís hopyness.

Different from the original arrogant bastard. Nice aroma. Much more maltyness than the regular bastard. Much less hops as well. Good drink overall with just a bit of alcohol bite.

ok...first off, I was really drunk when I was able to drink this one, First was:Chimay Bleu,Sierra Nevada Celebration ale,ayinger,some kinda lambic style beer, trois pistoles, then the double bastard, I have another big bottle so Iíll probabley rerate this beer. From what I remember it had a nice head, and smelled like alcohol, it seemed to taste very good, but Im gonna drink again just to get a good rating out of it.

not as good as arrogant bastard, the extra alcohol content seems forced. but the flavor is still present, everything that is good about arrrogant bastard is in this beer, the extra alcohol just seems to take away from it

Beautiful reddish brown color. Huge everything about this beer. Nice big lacey head.The aroma was full of citrus. The flavor burst out with strong hops bitterness, very sweet maltiness, I think this is an improved version of Arrogant Bastard. Nice crisp feel, perfect palate

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - NOV 1, 2003
2003 bottle. The beer had literally only been in Ohio for an hour before I got my grubby little beer geek hands on it. Nice tan head, dark amber/red color. I smell hops, malt, fruit, more hops, and some more hops--oh, and some alcohol. Good googly moogly! Taste malty, sweet, grapefruit, but not as bitter of a finish as I had expected (feared). Actually, the finish is devine. Amazing how such a big beer can finish so tender and loving. I AM worthy, albeit just barely. I expected a jacked-up arrogant bastard, but what I got was a delicious, balanced brew. This is tasty but not for the faint of heart. I wonder what this 2003 vintage would taste like in a year or so. Gotta love Stone.

IPAGargoyleGuy (140) - Troy, NY, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Bottle, 22oz. This beer is incredibly full flavored. I thought that the alcohol content was just right for such a stong tasting beer. If you see it, buy it... I miss it already.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Dark dirty amber color. Slighty cloudy from the chill, with nice head and lacing. Aroma is barleywineish dominated by dark caramel malts. Flavor mirrors the aroma. Nice syrupy mouthfeel with lingering hop flavor and bitterness. Well done, I'll have another please.

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2006
Pours a syrupy deep amber color, kind of brownish, with a thick crop of tan foam. Nose is thick and sweet, with hints of caramel and citrus. Flavor is thick as well. Heavy sweet malts give way to an overpowering alcohol vibe, has a heavy heat on it. Again with stone, you get a beer that isnít terribly good, Itís just a kick in the mouth.

oldno7 (137) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2007
(05 vintage aged 2 years) Poured a murky copper with a dirty tan head. Had a rather potent aroma of malts, floral, pine, and hops. The flavor was a little strong up front but, because it was aged it had a mellow finish. There was notes of malts, fruits, citrus, pine and a golden brown sugar. OUTSTANDING ASA!!!
