Nice bold beer. The brown amber color was intimidating right from the start but it was a nice drnk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the better APAs I’ve had. Nice floral hop pressens and a very solid malt back bone. I really enjoyed this one.

Thanks to Kevin for sharing this gem. Pours a thin red color with a tan head. Aroma of sweet hops and caramel hints. Agrressive hop flavor with a huge mouthfeel. The oak is very subtle in this brew. Despite the lack of oakiness, does have quite a bit different character than the Arrogant Bastard. Great Beer. Thanks again for the samples.

Keg at Southern Sun. The waiter said this one was acquired becasue management knew someone who knew someone...whatever. I was gald to come by at the right time. This was a whallop to the taste buds. At first I did not like it...tasted a little more sour than I thought it should have but after some more time on the palate it mellowed. I got the sense that this was aged in an oak barrel but the commercial description says it was aged with aok chips...big difference...it tasted like it may have been aged in a burbon oak barrel. There was some kind of additional taste that I could not pin down...I will have to try this one again.

Kroney (160) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 20, 2013
pours a dark copper/brown with a medium off-white head. Citrus and pine hops with a nice oak and caramel malt backbone. Flavor is a ton "softer" than the regular Bastard, not as bitter and finishes much smoother. Full-bodied, but very drinkable. Great Strong Ale.

Frauditor (160) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2007
have had a bunch of bastards but just now got around to rating it. probably one of the best drinkable beers on the planet. pours a thin off-white head. dark red in color. oak flavoring is light. smells are grapefruits, spice, and wood.

Reddish brown beer with slight head. Aroma is of wood and hops. Taste is pleasantly bitter and wood. Finishes nicely.

Reddish brown pour with a foamy thick head. Left an after unpleasant after taste. Expensive at 19 dollars for 6 pack.

DeweyDell (159) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2007
12 oz bottle, quite cold, pours a dark orange color with very little head... just some fat bubbles sitting on top. Aroma of pinecones and a Christmas tree.... more pine and resin than I have ever smelled in a beer. Tastes... strong. Predominantly bitter hops, but then a sweet roasty oaky taste that makes the whole thing really come together. Much better than the regular Arrogant Bastard... maybe not quite so arrogant?
