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.

22 oz. bottle - This beer is aggressive alright. While appaerntly not as hoppy as Stones Ruination IPA, this is still more of a hopheads beer due to the strong hops finish. Initially youll be hit with malty sweetness though. The flavor is strong like one might expect on reading the bottle, and very good. Highly recommended.

very rough flavor going down, not my type of beer, but it has a very high alcohol content. Great beer bottle and name that is the only reason that i bought this beer. Not that bad for the price.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Rerate, Syrupy and sugary, more so than I remember. Still quite tastey strong ale, well balanced but too full in body. Good, not too great. Another really good strong brew from Stone. Very hoppy and full bodied. Hops are very piney. Though this beer is really good, I cant really tell the difference between this, double bastard, ruinition, and old guardian. Perhaps the alcohol isnt as noticable.

Bottle. Long time drinker, first time rater. Pours a deep red-brown color with a thick lasting head that produces great lacing. Aroma is strong of hops with hints of nuts and coffee. Flavor is hugely hoppy with a smooth yet bitter alcohol finish. Bubbly on the palate. I dont see how anyone could think this brew is bad. Bad ass if you ask me. Always a favorite.

This is probably one of the worst beers i have ever had. It was very harsh, with a medicine and some other bullshit taste. Completely unbearable, i would rather sip on some COLT45.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2006 I had been drinking the Double Bastard for about 6 months(I bought a few cases (: ) and I had started growing tired of the strong smooth flavor of it. I picked up an arrogant bastard one night because it was the best that the store had... I had really forgotten how great AB is. It has a good punch that the Double bastard doesnt have. Its got a very complex flavor that is very much in your face, and I love the beers that give a good kick to the mouth. I forgot how good this beer was.

One of the best beers I have ever had. Strong solid ale in both hops and malt. Not a unique flavor, just enough of it that you wonder why you dont demand it of all the ales you drink. As strong as it is the balance of hops and malt is very good.

GreenDragon (219) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Wood red body with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of fruit and figs. Sweet initial taste with hops following on a bitter finish.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Deep mahogony red body with a thick, yet quickly dissapating off-white head. Citrus notes are the most present in the aroma, yet whiffs of prunes and other dark fruits are also present. Strong initial grapefruit taste is combined with very noticable carbonation, making for an extremely nice combination. Another winning combination from Stone.

Thick frothy off-white head. Dark amber color. Hoppy citrus aroma. Fairly bitter taste. A comfortable beer to drink if you enjoy the aggressive styles.
