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.

definitely my choice out at the local sports bar in town, but falls short of being served at home. Not stones strongest offering but a solid beer nonetheless

Bottle. Pours out a deep blood amber colour with a nice foamy-creamy white-tan head. Moderate activity. Nose is hoppy, grassy and a caramel/toffee element. Taste is very full bodied and hoppy. Palate is relativily smooth and caramel. The overall character is very aggressive but the palate tones it down to a manageable level making it very subtle and complex.

Arrogant Bastard Ale from Stone is excellent but I like Ruination much better

Giant bottle sat on my table at the restauarant with funny comments to read on the bottle. Dark copper with a good sized head. Very hoppy flavor with other tastes mixed in. Tasty beer with a good alcohol content!

22oz bottle. Pours a dark amber red color with pretty good head. Tastes of malts, hops, alcohol and tart fruit. A very dark, heavy and hop-dominated beer. Im not a big fan of hop-bitterness, but I can tell you the quality of this beer is top notch, and if you enjoy that flavor you will love this.

Pours dark red. Off white creamy head. Did not get a lot of hop citrus aromas. Some malt. Definitely taste the bitterness of the hops balanced well with the malt flavors. A bitter finish that is left with you for several seconds. Excellent beer.

Bottle. Excellent aroma of hops with a little sweetness present. Drank from a bottle, so I am not sure what it pours like. Flavor was strongly of hops, with a little sweetness and something a little like banana at the end. I wish I would have had more time to finish the bottle, but was too sleepy to finsh the pint. Great beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Nice Redish brown body with tan head with lots of beautiful hops. Moderate body and perfect carbonation
