COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

damn good beer, not as powerful as the double bastard, but I think I like it better. It’s like a taste explosion. Just name about 15 charachters on smell and taste in your head real quick and I’ll bet they are in this beer.

Bottle. Brown/reddish beer with a caramel/dry aroma and a lightly hoped flavour. The beer is dizzy juice, dry and bitter with a very vinous edge.

The first thing you notice is nice aroma on th is on. Not too strong, just right. Has a nice taste, not too bitter. Not heavy like some ales can be. All in all, a good but not spectacular ale.

Pretty good, although definitely not a drinking beer. This is another high alcohol beer better done while reading a book or relaxing after a long day.

Pours a dark ruby with big white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, raisin and a slight hop and alcohol. Taste is similar, but caramel and malt dominate through and through in this heavy chewy ale with a nice aftertaste of toffee.

They’re not kidding. It is truly an aggressive beer. Very nicely hopped, with still a fair representation of malt. A big beer for big beer drinkers, although I suspect half the reason I drink it is for the image....

You can taste a nice base of caramel, malt, and some spice. This is suddenly and deligtfully washed over by some fantastic citrus-like hops. This is a tastefully powerful beer that really is pretty damn arrogant and not for the faint of heart.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2005 On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Dark orange with tan head, looks beautiful. Powerfully sweet aroma, like cooked sugar and hops. Biting fruit, like grapefruit, piney, hoppey. Palate is fairly heavy. This beer owns me.

A friend got me a bottle ( I think she thinks I’m arrogant) , but wow this is a good beer. The hops really don’t hit you until you swallow, but then they linger. Excellent beer.

I love this beer. A hometown favorite in San Diego and well deserved. Opening up a bottle releases an amazing aroma. The appearance is dark and rich and the flavor follows through with a well bodied bitter that stays in your mouth for a long time. Drink on an empty stomach, because this stuff is filling and youre going to want a lot of it.
