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...

chicagobears (446) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Pours into snifter with reddish brown hue. Sugared candied pineapples, apples and raisins in the nose. Complex flavors and really a lot going on as this opens up. I taste some prunes, pineapples, sour apples, caramel, brown sugar… Slight alcohol burn and oily on the finish. Immensely sweet and bitter. Really a hell of a beer.

Samuel214 (314) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med ölsällskapet. Mörk mahognybrun med oljigt krämbeiget skum. Påminner om vanliga Arrogant Bastard i doften, men sötare. Det är rejält med kola, toffee, kakdeg jämte kåda och granskott. Även apelsin och mango anas. Superstor, oljig kropp med klibbig humlebeska. Lätt, lätt rökig i smaken, tillsammans med det som känns redan i doften. Stor beska som bärs upp och nästan hamnar i bakgrunden för den stora kroppen.

Studoffsky (39) - POLAND - APR 23, 2016
Jest klasycznie barlejowo, słody, słody, słody. Piwo treściwe, do bardzo powolnego sączenia. W aromacie wybija się konfitura różana (pierwsze piwo z taką nutą), suszone figi, słodki chleb wileński, irysy. Bardzo udany, nie zamulający barlejek.

romankosecki (14) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
[tap, Jabeerwockie, Warsaw]
Appearance small foam, small bubbles, creamy, long lasted. Dark amber, almost brown, a little bit cloudy. Nice.
Aroma: Nice! Rich palate of malts: grains, biscuits, caramel (raisins, muscavido, roasted sweet bread). Pleasent red fruits: apple and grapes. Some grassy/herbal notes. Alcohol is present, but it’s acceptable.
Taste: At the beginning very sweet, malty with hints of fruit. After second appears some strange, grassy, phenolic and taninn note. Herbal, spicy, acrid. It was really strange, but overall rather unpleasent - like beer fermented in too high temperature. Alcohol is present, nicely warms up throat.
Mouthfeel and bitterness: rather high bitterness. I feel phenols and alcohol present, making it long and sharp. Texture is oily, rich, thick, nicely pours in mouth.
Overall
Aroma was great, I expected some world class beer, but in taste something strange appeared and it ruined the experience. Sincerely, if I paid half of the price, I would be satisfied, but for this money I expect more.

Flaska som lagrats 3 år. Fasen vilken doft. Vänner av öl köp o lagra!! Här finns hela registret. Torkad frukt o hav med tång. Härligt balanserad med fina toner av torkad frukt. Väl balanserad med en helt underbar efterbeska. Världsöl!!! Blir så imponerad av dessa bryggare från staterna.
