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. íCourse thereís always the masochists...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

this is really hoppy. but it smells pretty good. iím too tired and not sober enough to give this a real rating, but this is super sippable.

Metallic and boozy aromas with a Chinook hop aroma, though muted by the boozy notes on the aroma. Flavor is like a under-aged barley wine but a bit thinner on the palate than the traditional American Barleywine. Finish is slightly bitter and alcoholic. Overrated at 100pts.

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.

Had a year and a half old bottle. Simply incredible. Aged, the hops weaken down and leave more pallet for the smooth body. Not much hop aroma but the aroma that it does have is all malt and delicious. Cant beat it.
