Sampled at Mondial de la Biere. Great hoppy, bready aroma. Nice malt flavor followed by a great hop finish. Definitely want to sit down again with this one. Doon (109) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Pours a dark brown with a reddish tint. Head is generous and is slow to dissipate. Nice lacing. Aroma is very subtle. Hints of malt and..."plastic." Taste is complex. The taste changes as it passes down the old gullet. First it’s crisp and bubbly with a very light malty flavor then turns very bitter as it goes down....Oh, and it "burps" nice later on.... Very easy drinking and pleasurable! kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Beautiful looking beer. Arrogant Bastard impresses me every time I have it. Definitely has a bite to it and a great lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. porkdiggity (108) - Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2013
This is certainly not for the faint of heart, but I love it. The aroma is full of malty goodness, but the secret is after you take a drink. There's nothing small about this beer. It's all about big hops, lots of malt, and attitude. Pours a super dark reddish brown, with moderate lacing on the sides of the glass as you drink it.

I had this on tap at school. It's strong flavored with a bitter aftertaste. It was defintely worth trying, although I probably won't be ordering it frequently.

Very good beer. Dark reddish in color. Wasn’t much into hoppy beers, need to try it again and get an accurate taste. n49921 (108) - USA - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle. Earthy hops aroma with a hint of malt. Nice tan head with very nice lacing. Initial malt taste followed by strong hops. Hangs together really nice. sja14 (108) - Ohio, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Pours a deep red color and smells of hoppy sweetness with a hint of alcohol. Ours a great creamy head with nice lacing. Very complex. Fully body taste with a good malt/hop balance. Good beer. Coltrane (108) - South Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2009
Awesome beer, Tremendously hoppy, to an absurd degree. Crazy amount of malt poking through, like a scotch ale with a bucket of hops. A bit of caramel, but mostly just bitter.

Hoppier than expected - oily, rough, pine, little citrus. Lovely dark amber hue. Wasn’t feeling this style when I had it, but it wasn’t bad.
