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...

Poured from bomber into tulip glass. Beautiful color...like hazy caramel. Good foamy off white head that faded to a thin ring/layer and left some nice lacing. Aroma is hard to define. Reminds me of some Belgians Iíve had. Lots of hops, but also malt. Spice, floral, woody, alcohol, pine. Quite a bit of sweet at first taste but quickly moves to warming alcohol with a long finish. Fairly lively but soft carbonation. Thereís a lot going on with this and all of it is very good.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 2004 release @ Najas. Caramel hoppy plum flavor. Very chewy sticky mouthfeel. Thick brew. Beautiful lacing. Definetely a sipping beer. Very flavorful. I await to try a fresh bottle to compare. 2007 rls comes out Nov 5th! Just had the 2007 release. Fresh batch is not as thick and chewy, Very hoppy and malty. Caramel and plum flavors. Sweet floral hoppy aroma. Very delicious beer.

Sampled at Blind Tiger Very Special Keg Night 11/19/08: Ruby-red color. Strong on both the malt and hops front; a great beer kicked into overdrive. Well balanced.

On tap @ Tap25. Cloudy, orange with disappearing head. Very, very light smells of fruit and hops. Tastes of malty booziness, sweet, but finishes with a bitter aftertaste. Seems like a complex beer, changing as it warmed up, but I still wonder if Arrogant Bastard is better than this. A little more malt with an alcohol bite. Would love to try them together.

Liquid Arrogance? More like Liquid Fury! A distinctly stronger brew than the first Arrogant Bastard, I gave this one a 2 in the Palate, just because Iím honestly not sure I could handle two in a row. This beer has lots of everything: very malty with hints of chocolate and other tastes my palate is not sophisticated enough to understand, lots of carbonation, lots of hops, and a DARK red color that is scarey! If you arenít a hop-head, beware of this beer, and Stoneís other brews! Quite simply, youíre not qualified to apprechiate it. What a great beer . . .

Pours a dark muddy brown. Alcohol is not very well masked in this beer. I was very disappointed in the overall performance of this. Then again I found the case against the back wall, buried at my local beer distributor. Warm case too. Wonder how long it was sitting?

3 Liter I recieved for Christmas. Dark amber color with a creamy off-white head. Very little carbonation. Smells sweet, almost ciderish. Also has slight aroma of alcohol. Flavor is of caramel, and quite a bit of sweetness initially which turns quickly to bitterness. Finishes dry like wine. Like some others stated, this at times taste like no other beer Iíve ever had. Highly drinkable in my opinion considering itís less than modest ABV. Would like to taste again soon.

22 oz from mail order. Description on bottle had me hesitant, but first taste blew me away. Hops aroma is very strong as is hops taste, but in a very pleasing way. Poured amber/copper with virtually no head. Strong aftertaste, but again, if the taste is good, the aftertaste is as well. This is the best beer I have ever tasted and will be the benchmark I use for future beers.

A fine crafted brew. Bitter hoppyness with the sweet malt kicking in; I can admire the craftsmanship that went into this.
