Full, tangy taste. Not for the timid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of hops and some malty yeastiness. Pours a rich amber with a gorgeous foamy head. Taste of hops, bitter pine, dark fruits, malts, resin, etc. A huge beer with tons of complex flavours.
(And although the Stone Rep in AB refused to disclose the IBUs for this, I’d guess between 80-95)! ;)

650ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits, chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is a dark fruit and chocolate malty sweetness with a grainy and dark fruity sweetness. This brew is much more complicated than I can describe here. Overall, this is an outstanding brew, full bodied with nice carbonation, well balanced and only for serious beer lovers out there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, body the color of new mahogany, skiff of foam, fades pretty quickly. Aroma is malty caramel, raisin, some spruce. Taste is sweet and sharp, malt and spruce and spice, orange/lychee, with citrus rind bitter. Palate is smooth and rich, not overly thick, with fine moderate carbonation.finish is bitter sweet, but leaving an almost astringent bitter taste that lingers too long to be pleasant. Guess I have to keep drinking it.

Pours with a pretty brown orange with light tan head. Pine, fruit, wood. Malt, caramel, more wood and pine in taste. Slightly sweet and boozy. Nice bitter and floral finish. Very enjoyable.

A fantastic beer, so complex. The aroma is sweet and malty , the initial taste is a sweet brown ale, but then come a flood of hops to dry the finish, making this a double bastard of an easy drinking 11% beer.

Draft. Brown with a big white head. Not much nose. Big full flavors of chocolate malts. Alcohol well hidden. Well made.

Seems I’ve sort of moves away from the arrogant bastard flavor lately. Maybe because it’s cold? Very strong beer. It really tastes like arrogant basyard with more octane , but the base flavors aren’t much stronger to compensate for higher abv. Bitterness is strong though abd it actually is more potent but not better than normal ab

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
