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. ’Course there’s always the masochists...

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..

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.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2005 This beer has less of a hop aftertaste than it’s little brother and is really thick on the palate. Pours a deep red/brown with a tan head and good retention. Some fruit flavor really sets it apart from AB, like black cherries and raspberries. Some maple syrup with a spicy kick to the finish. I had killed a few bottles of this a few months back, but tasting it on draft with 6 or 7 months age seemed to smooth it out and really made me appreciate it more.

Double the bastard double the fun, they just got this in at Lee’s for the year along with the 8th anniversary. Careful how much you drink though, after sharing half a bottle between me and my friend we were definitely feeling the burn. Great stuff!

Appearance-great dark amber appearance with a wonderful head. Aroma-very good. Slight alcohol smell with plenty of hops. Flavor-Very complex taste with alcohol finish. Not for the weak. Palate-Smooth. Leaves the bitter taste but not like Runination. Overall-Good. I don’t know if I could drink this all nite. I think after one bomber, I would be done. Overall a very good beer. I like the Ruination IPA better but this is good.

What a lovely and luxiourious beer. The aroma sets the bar VERY high. It Hoppy, a little flowery, and slight undertones of malt and alcohol. This beer is much more full bodied and round than it’s little brother. It does not really have the spikey upfrontness as a regular bastard. ;) But this is because it is just all things wrapped up in one drink. FAR more strong booze wise than it tastes. ;) Unlike ABA, it is more equally balanced between malts and hops, with malts getting the edge slightly. This is a hard beer for me to describe since it is able to be ALL things except weak.

Heavy toasted caramel malt flavor. Very bitter and tons of citrusy hop flavor. The malts and hops are very well balanced. There is a slight alcohol finish. The body is full with a creamy and syrupy texture along with soft carbonation.

Good beer. Honestly reminds me a lot of regular arrogant bastard. Another solid creation from stone.
