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...

Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh.Pours dark hazy orange. Nice head. The aroma is rich citrus hoppiness with sweet malts. And yes this is hoppy and bitter. That said, comparing this with many contemporary west coast US style ales, not so unusual these days... actually nae, This is one rich hoppy bastard ! What I particularly like about this is the way that the relatively massive hop bitterness doesnít in any way derail the wonderful malts and hop flovours. It just works. They got this spot on, as they did with Arrogant. Had this a few times now and certainly will again.

Light burgundy with thin head. Pungent malts and spices on the nose. Profusion of flavors, cherries, prunes, candied citrus rind, cinnamon, very boozy followed by very dry and insistent hopping .After taste just keeps on going. Will probably be tasting this in the morning. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark malts and caramel for aroma. Pretty bitter bite than increases and then starts to calm on the palate. Leaves a bitter taste in the back of your mouth. I would get it again although, at 11.2%, I wouldn't have too many ;) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sprinkle (114) - Arcadia, Michigan, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Deep hazy garnet in color. Good head and lace that sticks lingers for a little while. Rich malts and perfumey nose. Very well carbonated. Rich carmelly malts, consistancy that is almost vinous, hops are alot more toned down than regular bastard. Very solid beer and still more balanced then a couple years ago, holding up nicely. í03 vintage.

This bastard is hardcore. Deep opaque red with off-white halo. Friendly yeast chunks. Thick aroma of bread and sweet bourbon. Punch you in the teeth flavor. Tastes of baked fruit and booze. Cherries. Wood. Warm dough and malt. Medium body and a bitter finish. This is a brew to savor after youíve been rained on during a long, cold walk to your car after a shit day at work. Prost.

Deep copper, very yeasty, no head, strong lacing, sweet, flowers and alcoholic, candy sugar, intensely sweet on the palate with a long lingering harsh and strong bitterness, almost medical in its bitterness

Seems Iíve sort of moves away from the arrogant bastard flavor lately. Maybe because itís cold? Very strong beer. It really tastes like arrogant basyard with more octane , but the base flavors arenít much stronger to compensate for higher abv. Bitterness is strong though abd it actually is more potent but not better than normal ab
