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.

Deep mahogany pour, off white head. Thick, lovely lacing. Nose is grapefruit and some roasted malts. Flavors follow the nose, but more complex - lightly roasted malt, citrusy grapefruit, and a touch of sweetness - but just a touch! Finish is slightly bitter rising from the sides of the tongue. Very nice - for an arrogant bastard...

Delicious beer. Dark red. Some malt. Hop overload. Oddly smooth. Excellent.

This one runs hot and cold. And Ive found it to have quite a few variations from bottle to bottle and tap to tap. Its always pretty good, but some times it is really good. Ton of hops and grassy sweetness. Amazingly smooth mouthfeel. It could go to a 4, but Ill keep it at 3.8 due to its variation.

This Christmas ale was a big surprise. The neagtive hype on the bottle had me wondering what I was going to experience. The head formed nicely not over frothing. The color is a deep mahogany. The aroma was of hops and roasted malt. The complex flavors kept me wanting more. This is an ale to seek out. This certainly is a "worthy" ale.

Quiver (140) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Had on tap at the Yard House. Medium mahoganey pour with minimal halo of a head. Reeks of grapefruity hops, alcohol, citrus grove. Its hoppy. The taste is mostly hops, abusive, numbing hops. Almost totally linear like chewing on the pith of an underripe grapefruit. Maybe some raw, earthy, grassy barley at the finish. Pithy, ridiculously astringent, dry. Interesting, but not something Id trip my grandma for to get the last bottle on earth.

This ale has a lot to say. Terrific stout-bitter start with a complex and strong finish, lots of things going on here. My friends and I like to call this the "motor oil" of ales! Thats not nessessarily a bad thing however, if your a strong-ale person. Dont take the "warning" on the back of the bottle lightly though, some people will definately NOT like this one. Arrogant Bastard Ales is by all regards an aquired taste! Cheers!

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2008 22 0z. bottle - Pours a deep ruby red color with a one finger thick light tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is your typical Stone well hopped beer. You can actually taste some malt in this beer. Slight sweetness with very little aftertaste. Medium body. A very good beer.

Deep, dark red with beautiful head. The malts speak first and quickly make way for a hop extravaganza. Lots of vegetal bitterness in the finish. Like a fast, short roller coaster. Very good.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Bold red color with a head that sticks around. A sweet malty aroma and a taste quite similar. Kind of a sticky body, but in a good way. Its the flavor that sticks with you.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Bottle. Poured dark amber with a nice off white head that had some lasting power. Aromas of malts, prunes, and floral notes that carried through to the taste. Caramel and bready yeasts peeked through as well. Finished with a nice and balanced hop bite. Very good indeed.
