Ooooh. Look what we can do with hops. Standard Stone fare. At least this one has a modicum of malt to balance it in the beginning.

Beer pours a dark brown with a nice cream/tan head. The taste is very full with carmel malt and finishing with grassy hops. Very well balanced. Excellent beer.

This is a much heavier version of the Arrogant Bastard ale. Double is so strong it is almost like drinking a barleywine. I felt the alcohol flavor took away from the rest of what the beer has to offer, which is a lot of complexity. Overall, I like the original bastard better, although this is a nice sipper.

The beer pours an amber red with a thin quickly disappearing head. The nose is a thick mix of sweet malts (dark fruit and berries) with a dry hop. The flavor is big but simple. It is defiantly hoppy but with a good balance from the sweet malts. The finish is a sweet hop that last for days.

Poured on tap at Stone Oceanside. Aroma is rich malty sweetness with a generous portion of hoppiness. Taste is toasted malts, raisins and a little plum. Nice hoppiness in the taste with a lingering astringency. Huge fan of this beer.

Pours a gorgeous red-orange color with a thick bubbly off-white head. Sweet aroma, fresh citrus and resiny pine hops. Yum. Taste is extremely hoppy and bitter. Kind of sticky mouthfeel, with an unexpectedly dry finish. This is good, but a little strong for my tastes. Definitely not something to drink everyday, but worth a try.

Whoa, big aroma. Lots of malt, alcohol and hops. Color is a gorgeous reddish amber. Mild carbonation. Decent head forms that is off white and has a slight green tint to it (from the hops maybe?) Not a noticeable green mind you, just a very, very subtle hue that's barely noticeable. Well, considering the copywriting on the bottle, I'm prepared for one helluva big beer here. Taste is definitely big. Lots of malt. Lots of hops. A medicinal taste in the finish that I think is the combination of the alcohol and hops. Very strong beer. Mouthfeel and body are very warm and coating. Finish is long, with the hops outlasting the alcohol. Very impressive beer. 22 ounces of this stuff will take me a while. Maybe they should put this in 7 oz. nip bottles and call it "Little Bastard".

22 oz bottle. I wish I could find the Oaked big bottle ... Hoppy, strong alcohol. A truely arrogant beer. One of my favorites. But yeah, Id probably not recommend it to many people..
