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.

This beer is pretty good. Of all the Stone beers Ive had this one didnt seem to leave AS MUCH of an impression on me but its great stuff none-the-less. Nicely bitter, strong flavor and highly complex. This beer finally makes me proud of a popular beer. Youre not worthy

Bomber poured into Stone Arrogant Bastard tumbler! Pours a gorgeous copper/red with a finger-high beige head. Aroma is of caramel/cereal malt with a bit of resinous hops. Taste is a balanced bittersweet, blending brown ale, pale ale, and IPA all at the same time...! Well alas, thats what I perceive. Body is medium, texture is creamy-slick, and carbonation is pretty soft. Medium-low bitter finish which is relatively long, but nothing compared to the Ruination IPA for example. Overall an excellent beer. Stone never has deceived me. This is the second Bastard Ive had and the experience remains consistent. It really sucks that we dont have this in Canada. Damn you Canada liquor boards. Damn you SAQ!

Bottle. Om nom. Nom nom nom. this was awesome. NIce and strong, dark, roasted, and bitter (a little too bitter as it warmed up).

Densa, color oxido, malteada, muchas notas de regaliz y poco se nota su elevado alcohol, muy rica

Rich red color with hop, pine and somewhat sweet aroma. Medium off white head with little lacing. Full rich flavor of caramel, malt and hops. Complex and strong with nice alcohol warming. Great strong American ale.

Like a cheap skunky latin american malta vigor drink with a punch of alcohol. I liked the complex fruity undetone but I did not like the turn it took as it warmed. Most of this beers cousins would improve a little with warmth but this one does not. Nor does it play nice in a beer tasting.

Bottle. Dark red pour with a moderate, foamy head. Malty aroma of nuts and toffee with some hop notes. Caramel flavors with nice spicy hops on the back end. This is a really well rounded big beer. Its the perfect starting point when youre checking out this brewery.

Pours a hazy mahogany with a thin off white head. The aroma is citric hops, grapefruit, and dried fruits, dates and raisins. Taste is big with slick piney hops, citrus fruit also some sweet caramel malt. Moutfeel is full and heavy but perfect for the style. Despite being apparently different styles, the entire time I drank this I was comparing it to Alpha King. Three Floyds and Stone I see as two premiere microbreweries in high demand. AB and AK are the two flagship brews so I subconciously was measuring the two against each other. While I really enjoyed this and would definitely buy it again, AK is better IMO.

Mmmmm, yeah. Floral and fruity in the nose, but not too much -- and a wonderful deep amber/ruby color. Pours with a nice head, and the sweet smell (and taste) of success. Big bitter/malt balance is awesome. Life is good!
