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)

3.4 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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Dark red in color with a thin layer of white foam and amazing lacing.
S: Tons of caramel, oak/vanilla, slight citrus.
T: Very distinct oak flavor, malty sweetness, smoke, and of course the signature Arrogant Bastard bitterness on the finish.
M: Great body, very little carbonation.
D: Much more drinkable than "regular" Bastard and much more complex and interesting (in my opinion).

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.
