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...

Fresh bomber just released earlier this week from Stone, served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a clear ruby amber with a couple fingers of off white to beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and orange peel up front. There is also caramel, and pepper. Taste is strong citrus up front. Oranges, pineapple, lemons, and pine. It comes in quick with a strong caramel malt with bread and hints of lemon. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat chewy and the alcohol is very well hidden. Maybe it’s so amazing because it is very fresh but even the original arrogant bastard doesn’t even hold a candle to this beer. This is amazing.

Samuel214 (316) - 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.
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.
