UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 13th June 2008
Highly hopped ale with a sweet malty finish. The hops are never over bitter and are crisp and refreshing. The oak chips impart a nice subtle vanilla.

Bottle, 7.2%. Nice, bonbony sweet hop aroma. Almost clear red/brown colour. Very bitter flavour with good aroma hops. Ends on a weak, but nice, vanilla, cigarbox aftertaste.

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.

3.8 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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Sample of TChrome’s 3L bottle) Pours a deep amber color with a large biege head. Not nearly as aggressive as the original. Nice mellow hops flavor with some sweetness. Shouldn’t offend those who are not as big of hop lovers.

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.
