4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 2010-02-25, bottle, ~2 years old, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Brown color wih nice generous head and nice lace. The aroma features mainly harmonious vanilla and some oxidisation. The mouthfeel is very smooth, well blended, with caramel flavor and nice Bourbon vanilla; more dark caramel later. Maybe less impact and freshness in the final. Still good, I wouldn’t age it more.
2009-11-09, bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm, 7-5-7-4-14=37
Hazy dark amber color; small head. Rough aroma: alcohol, dust, sweat, yeast. Strong body, caramel flavor, harsh hop resins; not enough fruity or sweet.
Dark brown color; creamy persistent head. Beautiful aroma, where the hop is melting into sweet caramel and vanilla. The body is well structured, malty and caramel flavor, but I was expecting more sweetness at the end. Bold bitterness of course, but not enough exciting. Pleasant but controversial.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12oz. The almost clear, amber body is topped by a beige head of moderate size, and releases aromas of sugars, some vanilla and piney hops. Sweet, full-bodied and slightly warming in the mouth, almost candy sweet. Vanilla, resin and pine-cones also chime in. Malty-sweet and piney in the finish. The beer needs a little time to reveal all of itself, and when it does, it’s a good one. Still, nothing extraordinary, as I maybe expected. (081003)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08. The second beer from Harry’s box of delights. Lovely hop, some sour oak. That’s not quite right. Doesn’t quite go together. That slight sour/oak thing makes me think that it doesn’t all work out. Bit of vanilla. Decent score cos it is interesting.

Bottle at Distortion08 Soupalicious - Shared with Mette - thanks Sune for shipping this to me. Clear brown - offwhite/yellow head. Chokolate, roasted, bisquit, light oak/wood, raisins, resin, citric, caramel, lovely hoppy. Again a unbalanced but fantastic beer from Stone. Smoothness & violent at the same time.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml (Utobeer, £4.20)
Deep ruby-red color, decent creamy beige head. Strong hoppy nose with wood and rubber. Medium to full bodied. Front is a bit thin, then leads to fruity hops burst. Resin, citrus. Aftertaste is fruity-hoppy with extreme bitterness. As the basic Arrogant, this is quite simple hoplovers’ bomb. I couldn’t trace oak in the flavor at all.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Pony Bar. I didn’t like this as much as the regular Arrogant Bastard, but it was still quite good. Pours dark amber with a strong, orange head. Malty aroma with notes of alcohol, wood, and maple. Flavor is sweet and relaxed, with strong maple notes and alcohol presence. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes with mild bitterness. Good.
