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...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

TBone (16079) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled 660ml (Beer Hunters, 2011 release)
Ruby-brown color, tiny off-white head. Dark bready, citrusy, hoppy, salty and salt licorice aroma. Medium to full bodied. Licoricey, salty, bready flavor. Then excessive bitterness, spices and citrus in the aftertaste. Ultimate bitterness. For slow drinking.

brokensail (15728) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
2009 bottle. A: The pour is a clear, dark copper color with a lot of red notes to it. The head is about a finger’s worth of cream colored foam. S: The nose has a nice sweet caramel, toffee, and fruit background. A lot of raisins and oranges, and a touch of floral hops. T: The flavor is very interesting and while it has the trademark Stone hoppiness, there’s a lot more going on. The flavor starts off very sweet with caramel, toffee and perhaps even butterscotch. The raisins and oranges again make an appearance in the middle and are followed by a bitter, piney finish. The biggest flaw is that the beer is a bit hot. M: The body is fantastic. Very full with an almost chewy texture and a moderate level of carbonation. The finish is surprisingly dry. D: As I mentioned before, the biggest flaw with this beer is the alcohol presence. And as the glass warms up, it comes out a bit more. This is a big, big beer, and one you can’t drink too much of in a sitting.

Light reddish-brown; aroma of dying embers, toffee, cherry cheesecake, earthy hops; this is thick! thick! thick!. Similar flavour profile to Bastard but a lot bigger; dry finish with the highest Lovibond crystal malts involved.

bhensonb (13971) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle. Very strong aromas of roasted malt, pine and perhaps citrus. Luminous mahogany color (under halogen) with a tannish head that went up and down quite quickly. Medium to full body with very smooth carbonation. The flavor starts very malty, but there is an awful lot of hop to nearly balance it. The finish is rather sweet, but the hop continues to build. There’s a lot of malt and hop, but it could stand more bitter. Heat was hardly noticeable, and didn’t interfere with the flavor.

mcberko (13858) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 650mL bottle, pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma of caramel malt and sugar. Flavour is similar to the Arrogant Bastard (toffee, caramel malt, brown sugar, nuts), but more sugary / malty, and therefore balanced. Excellent.

Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas during the three day Stone Event, 16-18 september 2011. Hazy dark orange / amber color, small white head. Smell hop, some bitter and somehow a lot of wood. Taste pine and wood. Good carbo, full body.
