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...

Pours a hazy orange brown with a 1/2 finger. Aroma is a carmely sweetness. Taste is very sweet but very balanced with a nice bitterness. Damn smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

220z bottle, pours a small to average light brown head, body is light cloudy amber orange. Aromas of floral, pine, pear and pineapple. Body is full with soft carbination; slight bitter on the finish ties it together.

This beer (2013) doesn’t hide the alcohol but that isn’t a big point. It looks great and tastes even better. The aroma is hard to pin down as the alcohol kinda masks the hops a did and you get thick bready malts. So far so good. The taste is earthy hops and beautiful candied caramelized toffee and a roasty nuttiness. along with a good doses of hops. Delicious beer. well done. (again)

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

Not sure that this really deserves the 100 rating. It’s 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 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.

jongo (82) - Stockholm, Sweden, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2010
Bomber. Red brown color. Smell of caramel, resin, alcohol, vanilla. , Medium bitterness, heavy sweetness. Taste of alcohol, candy and resinous bitterness hops. Some butterscotch and vanilla. Good but not that good.

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
