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...

Hmm.. Gorgeous color, deep mahogony/red. Head did not stick around long. Seemed to lack the hop assault of the regular Bastard. Maybe I’m just turning into a hophead. Overall a very decent brew. Recommend.

Pours a dark amber, slightly cloudy. Small fluffy head that fades to lace quickly. Aroma of caramel, malt, hop, floral, spruce. Bubbly mouth feel. Lower carbonation. Taste of hops, caramel, spruce, resin, dark candied fruit. Full bodied. Bitter and sweet hop caramel finish. This is a very good brew. Smoother and a bit sweeter than the Viscosity’s,(to me, that is a good thing).

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2003 Rerate 2003:aroma is of grapefruit pine needles and a spicy hoppyness. pours a deep redish brown almos a rust color with almost no head. flavor is sweet, tart, and sour with warming alcohol notes. the hopflavor is still there but its in the background malt dominates this one. could this be signalling a change for stone with a focus on a big malt profile? only time will tell. Origional rating: this is a hop heads delight. very very hoppy. warming alcohol flavor. i got some that i'm aging. i'll rerate this and see if it gets better. but as it is its damn good

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.

Bottle. Pours amber red wih a 2.5 finger beige head. Aroma is sweet with notes of spice, caramel, and alcohol. Flavor is initially sweet on the lips with a strong hoppy caramel middle that leads to a warming alcohol finish. Thick, creamy, and chewy on the palate. This is truely a beer for the season.

I was surprised to see this on the shelf...what a nice warming treat for a cold day. This is a great big ale that has a strong hop flavor and biterness. There’s a sweet fruity charachter to this that is complimented well by the bitter aftertaste...ummmm, hop candy. The ABV is hidden well but is finding it’s way to my head quickly. Cheers.

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.
