COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Beautiful brown-red color with a nice and frothy brown head which does last. Nutty and malty aroma with some dried fruit. I like the fact this brew has a very distinct separation between the initial taste, middle and finish... Creamy mouthfeel, starts off sweet and nutty. In the middle you start to get the tingling indication of the hops with a little bit of alcohol warming. Hops linger into the finish with a sweet stickiness of chocolate and a good deal of bitterness I associate with coffee/expresso. This is truly an exceptional beer... I took my time drinking this one, and really enjoyed it.

If nothing else, this beer in arrogant in its presentation of the alcohol content. It makes no effort to hide the fact that it is going to hurt you. It pours a ruby red color with a clear body, crowned by a light-brown, creamy head. Good lacing. Aromas are mixed with a light bread, moderate yeast, and light soy sauce notes. Initially, it drew us in with a sweet taste, then wasted no time letting us know who was the boss here with a killer bitter finish. Medium body on the mouth with an oily finish. We like to think were worthy.

In my opinion...(and we know that eveyone HAS at least ONE...), this is one of the best beers I have ever tasted. The taste of Arrogance on your tongue will leave you wanting more. And believe me, you WILL want more!

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 (bottle): Pours a dark brown color, brownish head. Big & lasting. Very bitter hoppy aroma. Sour. Very bitter dry, malty sour taste. Almost acidic. Warming.

From Bottle. Reddish mahogany colored pour with a fluffy beige head. Translucent body with a slightly oily looking texture. Sweet brown sugar aroma that appears to be flavored with raw celery leaf. The sweet roasted malts and hops balance is delightful, and the celery scented hop bitterness is truly unique. A bizarre flavor amalgam coats the tongue in a sticky, gooey residue. Im getting a bit of fire roasted hazelnuts dipped in kentucky bourbon. A hint of lemon pepper and caraway seed provide a nice spice dimension as well. Final smack of sour pear and cedar bark.

....im catching up on my reviews tonight. when i first had this back in 98.. i didnt like it. yet, back in 98 i didnt like many craft beers other than sierra nevada pale ale and anchor steam. now... im a hop-head and craft beer lover. i have this often on draft and from the bastard bomber. great color.. deep amber.. reddish.. great pour.. perfect head.. looks awesome sitting there staring at you. you definitely get some grapefruit and raisins in there.. wow! this is such a dynamic beer. hops and malt are really well balanced i think.... im worthy.

Very nice, without question, but Stone makes many many better brews. A good place to start with this brewery though.

My piss has more sophistication than this beer...just kidding, its really good. Aroma is very much like an IPA although a little sweeter and fruity almost kind of floral with a little sour background. Looks very good -nice medium tight head and very dark reddish brown. Flavor is very bitter with an explosion of hops of all types and with a strong malt backbone that is almost kind of smokey/earthy/coffee-like. Cold, this was just very bitter, as it warmed, so many more dimensions came out and the palate was much richer. Overall its really very good. Although it is pricy, at least in NJ. I think the guy on the label needs a 12 step program though, hes pretty abusive.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2006 Ive been wanting to try this for a while. Love the description. Pours dark amber but clear with a respectable tan head. Some roasted barley in the nose, along with spicey, earthy hops. Also a little sour, not loving the nose. Flavor is nice and balanced though. Bitter, stings the corner of the mouth, but enough malt to make it enjoyable. Its a good beer, grows on you as you drink it. Perhaps Im not worthy.
