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%.

"Iím a huge Stone fan, not a big fan of Arrogant Bastard, so I didnít know what to expect from this one. Stronger, but smoother, than itís little brother, and significantly better. Big hops and malt all around. Quite hoppy/bitter for a barleywine. thoroughly enjoyed several vintages at Stone."

Eh itís okay. Itís a strong beer for sure and lives up to its name. All the things about not being worthy etc itís not that tough. Aroma is syrupy sweetness. Lots and lots of malt. Like a ton. Not bad just donít expect something else. The taste is alright. I heard from people it has a really subtle alcohol burn and thatís true. For how high ABV it is it definitely doesnít show which is good. Realllllly bitter, and sweet. Some hopiness but definitely takes a backstage to the sweet malt. Itís not bad just in my opinion kind of average. I couldnít really pick out something i really liked about it.

Pours a hazy copper color. Caramel citrusy taste. Hoppy flavor. Thick on the palat. Low carbonation but the head retention is very good. Alcohol warmth is noticable but not overpowering.

Mikon luona. Really thick, complex, roasted malty taste with well balanced drying aftertaste. Wonderful.
