This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

From 473ml can. Poured with rich, inch high head with great retention. Aroma was of metallic berries, not good. Aroma is more caramel malt as it warms. Taste is of malt with a little sweetness, then strong bitterness in the back end. Not that impressed

500 ml can as Stone Berlin. Served in tulip. Pours blood red, with big fluffy and firm head. Fantastic look. Bitter grapefruit aroma and some other tropical fruits, elderflower, some dark cherry, some metallic and earthy notes. Heavy hoppy bitterness. Alcohol perfectly hidden. Soft carbonated, full body. Bitter finish. Palatable. Long lasting aftertaste. This beer has character.

De Arrogant Brewing(U. S. A.) la famosa Arrogant Bastard Ale una American Strong Ale que inicio siendo fabricada por Stone Brewing(U. S. A.) como cerveza de aniversario pero se populariz� tanto que decidieron crear una submarca que la elaborara todo el a�o y en diferentes variantes como las que est�n a�ejadas en barricas de roble, barricas en donde se a�ejo bourbon previamente, version doble, de centeno, etc. Esta es la cl�sica con 7.2% ABV y 100 IBU’s, cabe mencionar que el estilo no es muy reproducido ya que es muy similar a un American Barley Wine, prob�mosla. En apariencia nos encontramos con una corona de espuma mediana de burbujas compactas a medias, la retenci�n no es mala, posee una tonalidad marr�n con destellos rojizos, es turbia y de cuerpo pleno. En aromas es de intensidad media con notas de lupulos a toronja, cascara de naranja, pin�cea y resinosa, hay olores de malta similares a tofee, az�car candy, pan tostado, nuez, muy compleja y dif�cil de descifrar. En paladar la primera impresi�n es un fuerte amargor con sabores c�tricos como toronja, naranja y pi�a seguido de un buen golpe de malta que otorga car�cter a pan tostado, caramelo, tofee, az�car morena, ligeramente frutos secos, el final es seco y resinoso, la amargura se queda de forma residual y hay un cierto toque jabonoso que si llega a desagradar, una cerveza fuerte algo desbalanceada, no es para todos los paladares, aunque tiene muchos seguidores por lo que representa ya que es un icono en el �mbito de las cervezas extremas y el bum por el amargor, un obligado para los amantes del l�pulo y es mas por ello que la receta ya no se a modificado pudiendo mejorarla aun mas conociendo la calidad de Stone.

Espesa más no lo suficiente. Aroma poco fuerte. Es mejor el sabor que el olor. Una verdadera cerveza artesanal. Mucha espuma. Fuerte sensación de malta. El punto justo de amargura. Muy recomendable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 A deep ruby beer with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, piney and malty. Tate is very bitter, resinous and piney, caramel malt. Great beer

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 I haven’t had this in a few moons had to rate after reading blueruin’s rate below. With BJCP style guidelines, this was not as impressive as previously remembered, but nevertheless it has been a huge gateway ale for the Americans over many years. No esters but raisins aroma with bitter musk. Appearance is spot on, medium tan head. Taste is low malt, licorice, even as warmed. A high bitter hop but a good bittersweet crisp finish. Mouthfeel was spot on and the overall impression was an ale that was unbalanced and uncomplimentary in the hops and malts, an arrogant bastard.

EU version. Can. Musty aroma, murky unpleasant tang like an old pub or wet carpet. This is like a beefed up version of an English brown ale, and for me it just doesn’t work. The US version must be better than this, or there is some bizarre hype going on - this is just one-note clumsy bitterness.

Can in paradise bay, Malta, from Stone Berlin brewery, nice design. Brown color, clear, thick creamy light tan head. Hoppy upfront, light toasted malts and loads of bittering hops with some charcoal earthy/rocky tones. Medium to full body, very long desert-dry finish, intensely bitter yet fairly easy to drink. Lacks of fruity overtones, really straight and bastard indeed.

jamaty (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 2, 2017
Caoba nebulosa. Estupenda espuma beige cremosa, duradera. Gran aspecto. Aroma tostado ligeramente lácteo. Excelente en boca, muy bien de gas, de cuerpo moderado, y un rico sabor acaramelado, con presencia de licor, frutos secos, café... y un final muy seco y amargo. Te quedas saboreando largo rato el final que deja en boca. Muy buena.

coresterol (73) - Wrocław, POLAND - JUL 31, 2017
Barwa miedziana, piana jasnobrazowa, wysoka, z duzymi pecherzykami. W aromacie duzo slodowosci, nieco chmielowych zapachów - grejpfrut, mango. Dosc wysoka goryczka, przyjemna i dlugo pozostajaca ale nie meczaca. Dobry balans miedzy slodowoscia a chmielowoscia. Jest nieco agresywnie, ale bez przesady.
