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.

I've only recently been introduced to The Stone Brewing Company. That said, from the very first sip I knew I was not a typical brew. It wasn't even a typical craft brew. My initial response to a Stone Brewing Company product was "Wow, I think this might be the best beer I've ever tasted!". That was the Stone IPA. This is my first try of Arrogant Bastard Ale and after my taste buds stopped screaming "Uncle!", my response was "Ahh, Seven Hells, that's good!!". The first thing that caught my attention was smell. I knew then that Fate, that sultry mistress with the warm hand and sensible footwear had pushed us together and I was truly in for a treat. The rich head on this beer is the equivalent of a steak dinner at the Buckhorn Exchange. Once the beer hits your tongue it's like a cacophony of flavors. It takes your mind a few seconds to catch up with it. This beer is almost too good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Puszka 0,5 l. Piwo uwarzone w Berlinie. Wypita 14.01.2018. Data ważności 26.11.2017. Mimo upływu ważności piwo nie traci na jakości. Barwa miedziana - rubinowa, zmętniona. Genialna, beżowa, gęsta i trwała piana. Tworzy niezły czop. Aromat dość intensywny, cytrusowy. Od razu czuć amerykański chmiel. W smaku karmelowe, słodkie. Alkohol jest wyczuwalny, ale nie dominuje. Wysycenie średnie.

2. Verkostung 2018: Stone Arrogant Bastard gegen Stone Ruination Double IPA. Der Bastard kam bei der ersten Verkostung nicht gut weg. Kastanienfarben und blank mit einer großen Krone aus beigem Schaum. In der Nase dunkles Malz und bitterer Hopfen. Diesmal ist das DIPA wärmer, das macht es etwas erträglicher. Der Körper ist voluminös, die Kohlensäure gering. Der Geschmack ist stark herb vom Hopfen mit Verstärkung der bitteren Noten des Malzes. Das war es aber auch schon. Extrem herb vom Hopfen ohne besonderes Hopfenaroma und bitter vom dunklen Malz. Meine 40% Bewertung in Prosa heißt “trinkbar aber nicht gut” und das passt hier wie die sprichwörtliche Faust aufs Auge. Da ist das Ruination DIPA einen Tick besser. 40% 1. Verkostung 2017: Auf dem Etikett ist doch alles gesagt: wir sind arrogant und unser Bier schmeckt Scheiße! Dem kann ich nur zustimmen. Ich glaube bei unserem Tasting hat keiner sein Glas ausgetrunken, ganz im Gegensatz zum Chouffe Houblon. Das ist auch ein IPA, das hat noch mehr Alkohol und das kann im Gegensatz zum Stone Braukunst aufweisen. Wenn ich mir noch eine Dose runterquäle folgt eine detaillierte Beschreibung. 40%
