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...

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

Itís a beautiful pour, with dark amber color and thick beige head that stays with the brew. Nose is resinous and First sip is surprisingly low key in alcohol. This is a 2014 bottle. Sweet, malty start with a bright hop finish. Itís not as clean on the palate, which I enjoy. After a few sips, it is almost the same affect as chewing on a hop flower. Those flavors linger! Great strong beer. For the alcohol, it is easy to drink. Plan so age a second bottle to test against next couple years.

Zakoon (190) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2015
650ml bottle enjoyed @ my vacation apartment. Pours cloudy dark ruby with a lasting beige head. Aroma is malt, herbs, raisins, alcohol, caramel and fruits. Flavour is bitter. Full bodied, thick texture, average carbonation. Finish is resinous and bready malt.

Strykzone (5391) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2015
How have I never rated this? Bomber. Deep amber with a beige head. Huge hops and malts in the aroma. Big complex fruit pretty much runs the gamut. The flavor is exactly the same. Complex and big fruit. Huge malts, too. Some spices and caramel. Brown sugar, harshness, alcohol, and big bitterness. My taste buds are being assaulted!

Pours a dark brown with a thick beige head. Aroma is malt, caramel, fruity with some hops and spices. Taste is high sweet leading to dry bitter finish. Excellent!

Pours a cloudy orange-brown with an off-white head and nice lace. Sweet aroma, nice citrus, bitterness in the finish. Thick, sweet malt and nice bitter aftertaste. Thick body and good carbonation. Tasty!

commonmac (614) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle purchased at Elevated. Consumed with Saturday Shirt. Pint glass. Deep amber color with an off white head. Aroma has the traditional Stone hop elements but a little bit more malt sweetness than most. Taste has plenty of hops but itís undercut by sweetness. Itís very drinkable and highly enjoyable. The alcohol is well hidden. Little bit of bitterness at the end. This is a great beer by one of the best hop centric breweries. Definitely worth a try. You bastard.

Turtles (255) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2015
650ml bottle. Deep ruby ​​red. The aroma of a whole bag of sweet caramel. The taste is firmly bitter, simultaneously sweet, hard candies, raisins, plums, sawdust. Several complex and deep flavors.

Hopmaestro (410) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2015
This mighty brew is really a treat. Aroma is dark fruits, sweet notes of vanilla, plums and caramel. The taste is also on the sweeter side of the spectrum, but with the massive hop profile it manages to keep up a certain attitude as a trouble maker. A true bastard.

A very big beer. Mouthfeel is almost perfect. Great hops and huge punch with the 11%. You can definitely taste the booze. Overall this is a great beer.
