I like this. The malt and hops balance is very good. Flavor is full bodied and smooth. I need more. ZeroDome (133) - GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
Red-Brown color with big white head. Sweetish malt character with some caramel, floral and over all fresh notes. Big body with a heavy load of hops, very bitter. Cant find a lot of hop character, little earthy and herbal. Alcohol is hard to notice. Somewhat refreshing. Difficult but: Good one mpbro (132) - Stanford, California, USA - JAN 11, 2003
After a couple disappointments with Stone beers, I'd started to wonder if the brewery wasn't overhyped.
I'm happy to report that Arrogant Bastard Ale lives up to any hype it has received.
This is real beer!
Attractive beer, perfect frothy head, fine bubbles, deep red/brown color. Slight haziness is a bit offputting.
Complex, pleasing aroma; malty, hoppy, and strong bread/french toast as the beer warms.
Even more complex and pleasant palate; perfect full,creamy mouthfeel, sweet (peachy), appropriately bitter, with a strong peppery note.
Also the same french toast as in the nose.
In summary, an unforgettable, highly unique beer.
The best I've had in 2003 (duh), and possibly for the last
five years! IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2012
I got this beer for 3 dollars a pint at the new Bar Louie in Nashville TN. Haha. Taste is exceptionally malty with a sturdy hop presence. The beer is as advertised. Loads of malts, tons of hops, amber/dark brown in color, and medium to heavy bodied. This one is a winner.

Bottled on 09/11/15. Aroma malty, fruity. Taste bread crust, caramel, strong grapefruity bitterness. Balance is on the bitter side, maybe too old already?

big malt flavors balanced by great hoppiness. pours the color of burgundy wine but with a very good, lasting head. Nice citrus tones mixed in. Predominently hoppy so a must for the hop lovers. Very injoyable beer. Can’t beat the label(s) either. A must try. ndfreak77 (132) - USA - JUL 13, 2008
Poured from a tap a reddish color. This brew really packed a punch. The aroma is much sweeter than the taste which is a little bitter, but not overdone. Overall a pretty decent beer. Blaze312 (132) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 28, 2009
22oz Bomber. Pours a brown color with a slight tan head. Smell of hops and spices, maybe even a hint of caramel. Taste is hops and malts with a spicy touch. Has a bitter aftertaste. This is a pretty damn good beer. Paid $4.99.
