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...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%.

22oz bomber poured into a large Duvel tulip glass. Pours a cloudy brown color with clear golden edges and a one inch head that leaves no lacing. I love the smell of this beer. There’s so much going on in terms of the aroma, hops, cherries, malt, dark stone fruits and some alcohol. It is 10.5% after all. The taste came up a little short in my opinion. Even after it warmed up the fruit and malt flavors weren’t as pronounced in the taste as did hops and alcohol. Still, this is a really good beer that I think can only get better with some aging.

65cl, Vintage 2011, at 10.5%Vol, exclusive American brew, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex bitter brew, bitter/sweet and slightly alcoholic/fruity, heavy, yet balanced, cloudy, small head, good brew, yet expensive!

Beautiful copper pour. Nice and clear with lots of tiny bubbles which rise to the thick white head. Sweet aroma of malt, fresh earth, hay, and booze. Thick mouthfeel. Flavor of sweet malt, pineapple, pine needles, grass with a giant hop punch in the mouth. Booze finish. I'm hardly worthy... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good boozy stuff. I gör wasted from the First moment. Notes OF caramel boozyness. And what not. Again next time. I really like the strong Notes OF nuttyness�� but it should be more flavorfol.

2012 draft. Pours deep copper amber. Light citrus and sweet malt aroma. Taste is citrus, candi sugar, roasted malt, nice hop bite. A bit syrupy with a big booze burn.

Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with an off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is sweet malt with butterscotch and some citrus. Taste is bready malt sweetness with more citrus hop flavor than expected from aroma. Has a prominent but smooth bitterness that lingers in the finish with a spiciness from the alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel and medium full bodied and medium high carbonation. A very big beer with lots of flavor.
