2002 thanks to Atlanta group. Poured into snifter glass. Pours medium brown. Malty, sour nose. Smells pretty sharp. Rich malt, very full. Alcohol is there, but not in the front, noticed only in the aftertaste really. Very, very delicious beer. Could drink this for quite a while.

This beer leaves a long lasting impression and shouldn’t be treated lightly for it will put you on your rear end. Strong ale with an everlasting palate and texture. Only for the strong ones.

tulip. beige color, small head and clean body. Smell of berries and warmth alcohol and sweet notes of dark fruits. Taste is sweet caramels with notes of grapes, malts, and slightly sweet. It does leaves you with a dry finish.

If arrogant bastard is a bit one-note, you’d think double bastard would be even more so, but this is a trickier beer than the original, not-born-of-married-stock ale that was the beer that got me hooked on Stone and craft beer in general. This one has some sweetness to counter the harsh bitterness. They is something chemical and off-putting in the aroma that makes this hard to enjoy. It affects the taste as well. The high abv is masked very well. Perhaps I could get used to the off smell, but I am not going to try too hard. Not worth $8 for a 22-oz bomber

2003 vintage. It's been a while since I have had this beer. It's better than I remember. Dark brown/red with excellent off-white head. Good lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma tells the story of an abundance of hops and alcohol. The flavor bites quick with lots of hops, alcohol, and slight orange flavors. After it goes down, the bite from the alcohol is very prevalent with citrus flavors lingering throughout the mouth. Great beer. What else does Stone brew?

Double Bastard Ale. If you are worthy enough for Arrogant Bastard, you’re going to love this one. It pours our a dark red color with a small white head. It doesn’t have very good retention but it does leave some lacing, but not too much. The aroma is primarily of hops and strong floral hits. The flavor is similar to the aroma. Hops hops and more ops with floral notes. The strong hoppiness of the brew is well balanced with the slight caramel malts hidden beneath everything else. If you’re a Stone guy like myself, you will definitely enjoy this beer through and through.

Pretty much the ultimate strong ale. Pours a pretty deep red with an off-white head. Sweet malt aroma and initial flavor, giving way to a strong bitterness with an alcoholic kick. Definitely not for the faint of heart, swirls and moves in the mouth while the malts do their thing. Cheers to Stone for producing this beast.
