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%.

rumproasts (4698) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 15, 2013
2011 bottle. Deep amber with two finger head. Itís every bit as harsh as youíd expect from the name. But also, quite delicious. Pretty substantial malt base with huge hoppiness and booze.

Bacterial (2675) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2014
Hazy dark amber pour on draft at Republic. Thick off white head. Malty nose. Big sweet taste, lots of hops and a big bitterness in the finish. Really nice. Big and kick ass for sure.

BlackHaddock (5648) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
14th March 2014, large bottle at a barbeque in Newport Beach, bought and took the bottle myself and didnít share it! Aggressive little bugger isnít it. Hops full on in the mouth, yet it has a sweeter maltier nose: bitter in flavour with a definite Barley wine undertone. A fine beer in all aspects.

AlmostHome (55) - Gulfport, Mississippi, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Good beer. Very malty. Strong. Thick head with a great brown color. Starts and ends strong. Like a loaf of bead. At 11.2% it gets your attention. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
