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...

This is such a badass beer. To me this tastes pretty much the same as Arrogant Bastard, just with more alcohol and perhaps a bit more character. I appreciate its complexity and its brazen character, but I can’t say I really enjoy drinking it. But at the same time hell yeah I’d drink it again.

Great malty aroma. Nice dark brown color. About 2 inch head. You can definitely taste the malt in your mouth. Bitter going doing and strong malt taste afterwards. Very strong. Little sips like drinking scotch. Very nice beer.

Smells of malt and bubble gum, not bad. Good dark amber copper color with a little beige head and no lacing. Tastes sweet malt and bubble gum. A nice beer.

Pours a dark copper color with some head retention and lacing. Tastes and smells like a sweet red. Kind of reminds me of fruit stripe gum. Quite a pleasant drink, but one that will knock you on your ass. Quite malty as well.

This one is very hefty. Good notes of caramel and oak. Definitely a sipper. Was a little disappointed with this one.

Pretty brown Orange with khaki head. Pine, fruit, wood. Malt, caramel, more wood and pine in taste. Slightly sweet and boozy. Nice bitter and floral finish. Good stuff.

Beautiful dark amber hue make this beer look like some I will love. It has a strong malt aroma a big taste upfront which grows into a powerful rich lasting flavor. Not for the timid that is for sure. It leaves a taste on you tongue which won't let you forget about that next sip and near forces you to bring that glass to you lips or open that second bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sparf (122) - Östersund, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2014
Mycket komplex och tät arom som nästan gör det svårt att identifiera komponenterna. Plommon i sherry, lätt citrusartad beska, torkade aprikoser, honungsmelon och över allting en flyktig alkohol. Vacker bärnstensbrun färg och ett bra skum men med kort halveringstid och dåliga lämningar. Även smaken är tät och komplex. Kraftig beska som balanserar de söta aromerna. Här finns tall, karamell, övermogen citron. Stor kropp och en trevligt livlig kolsyra. I eftersmaken finns en fudgeartad maltighet och så hänger en djup beska kvar riktigt länge. Gediget helgjuten produkt.

ROGUE (2120) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 13, 2014
22oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a two finger off-white head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is malt forward with sweet and bready malts, raisins, overripe orange, and booze. Taste is very smooth with caramel, bready malts, some alcohol heat, cherries, raisins, and figs, along with burnt toast and roasted malt. The boozy heat hides beneath the hop bitterness up front but slowly intensifies through the middle to the end. Finishes with a soft, slightly dry feel with lingering pine hop bitterness and lots of boozy heat.

liquidhedonism (128) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Aroma: boozy, woody, and very malty, with hints of toffee. Taste/Palate: thick, crisp, and very sweet; finishes with a long bitterness. Incredible and over-the-top hop/malt balance. Another perfect beer from Stone!
