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...

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2013
22oz. bottle filled from a 2012 keg. Pour is a slightly hazy burnt orange with a small off white head. Very sweet nose, feels like a cross between a barleywine and a dark belgian. Notes of candi sugar, sweet caramel, dark fruits, very citrusy hops, noticeable alcohol on the nose, and a nice biscuity malt note. Huge citrusy hops that have hardly faded away up front on the taste, then it goes to a plum and cherry sweetness, there’s an almost chocolatey taste there, nice piney notes, and a somewhat sticky syrupy taste. Very tasty beer, and even after a year it is still very very aggressive.

hohops (731) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2016
2014 bottle. Appearance- ruby red, dark brown tinges, a one finger thick beige head which clings. Aroma is loads of malt, caramel, toast, honey, cereal, cherries, sultana, cherry brandy, vinous hints, caramel malt. Smells big. Taste- full and coating in the mouth, bitter hop background, lots of caramel and toffee malt, biscuit, cherry and raisin, quite a boozy finish, red wine, cherry liqueur. Long sticky finish, quite sweet by the end. Very good stuff.

SvanteL (217) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2016
Vackert bärnstensfärgad, grumlig med medelstort skum. I doften finns hur många olika torkade frukter som helst, knäck och en massa annat godis Smak: Fyllig är bara förnamnet! Sanslösa fruktkombinationer och knäck och choklad tillsammans med en beska som får smaklökarna att stå i givakt. Går nästan inte att beskriva. Munkänslan är lite tjock och oljig, minst sagt fyllig.

fr5ed (62) - Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2016
On tap at Hourglass Brewery in Longwood , FL. A = clear, deep brownish-red, almost no head S = caramel-molasses-alcohol T = west coast barley wine-ish (think SN Bigfoot). Modest malt sweetness, caramel with robust hop bitterness. ETOH presence is apparent. M = close to heavy. O = really like this. A slow sipper for sure between the ABV and the bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer. Aroma is malty, caramel, intense hops, and fruits. Taste is really sweet, mixed with the bitterness of the hops. Medium body, smooth texture, average carbonation. Long alcoholic finish.

eljebi (62) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2016
Rica strong ale como un demonio. Maltosa, con frutas rojas, casi confitadas, licorosa y algo cítrica. En boca desde una entrada cítrica a todo el despliegue de las maltas para terminar en un final amargo y con presencia de alcohol
