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...

Bottle from a recent trip to New York. Lovely sweet hoppy nose which follows through to the flavour. Malty citrus notes with a smooth bitterness that lingers on the palate. A wonderful ale, almost a liqueur. Great to taste, but don't order a pint! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darnk at home in glass out of 22oz bottle. Aroma- not strong. Light florals but nothing distinct. Appearance dark red. Taste-very smooothe with a little hoppiness. Very drinkable. Palate- very clean palate and mouthfeel. Little floral taste as well. Overall- very impressed! Score does not reflect. I would rate total score as 4.4

Lukaduke (3011) - Gray, Maine, USA - NOV 6, 2012
2012 rings in @ 11.2%. Pours a deep amber color with a thick foamy head that coats the glass completely. Aromas are big, boozy, bold, earthy caramel... on the palate its right on target with the nose. Boozy deep brooding notes of cedar, butterscotch and pine. This should be my last beer for the night cause bastard just killed it.

Scipio (831) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Pours a dark, clear amber with a medium sized beige head that is long lasting. The aroma is heavy on caramel malt along with some citrus undertones of grapefruit and mango. I get some fig and a bit of pine as well. The taste contains much of the caramel, but it is challenged in flavor with a lot of pine. Citrus is still noticeable, and it goes along with a resin and alcohol taste as well. Bitter throughout, kind of sweet, with a piney aftertaste. Full bodied with a very thick texture. The alcohol content is apparent right away in this one. I like this quite a bit, but I think its something that you should be a bit wary of.

Bottle from a friend. Deep red color, beige head. Roasty taste with coffee, chocolate, raisins, plum, oak and smoky aroma. Roasty finish with oak aroma. Excellent strong ale.

rxeight (2579) - Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bomber into arrogant bastard fizzy yellow beer is for wussies pint. Brownish red pour. Aroma is hops like a double ipa. Taste is unique. Lots of hops but also a whole lot of malt. Pine hops very bitter. Malt is carmel. Different than the dark malt of a black ipa. Good stuff, and very different.

ozarkspops (368) - - JAN 15, 2013
Clear darkish amber pour. Medium thick off white head. Aggressive aroma of earthy hops, malt sweetness, and alcohol. Also has aggressive flavors that seem to evolve several times throughout. Sharp hop bitterness and alcohol comes through first. Lots of hop spice. Good amount of sweetness to offset the hops and then comes back to a dry hoppy finish. ---Rated via iPhone

burgy (456) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Overall, this is a great solid brew that is heavy on the alcohol side of things but the malt profile helps keep the flavor in check and not overwhelmed.
