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.

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

Cerveza color ámbar rojizo. Aromas de predominio cítrico, con toques acaramelados. Al paladar se perciben lúpulos cítricos, con un poco de toque a caramelo con el retrogusto amargo característico de esta cervecería, el cual perdura unos minutos. Excelente cerveza. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

matis (259) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Can from Berlin - BB May 2017. Malty aroma of dark fruits. So flat in taste... some grass, some herbs, tea (?), earth and nothing much more. Bitter, disturbing aftertaste. Huge disappointment. What the fuck with this legendary ale???

Stone Berlin. Puszka 500ml. Barwa rubinowa, piwo opalizujące. Piana bardzo obfita, zbita, kremowa w kolorze beżowym. Wygląda pięknie. Aromat jest bardzo ciekawy. Ciemne owoce, rodzynki - przypomina belgijskiego quadrupla. Do tego dochodzi fajna chmielowość: żywica, igły sosnowe. Na słodko. Piwo w smaku jest rwnież bardzo ciekawe, są rodzynki, ciemne owoce, karmel i chmiel. Za tym idzie konkretna goryczka, grejpfrutowo-żywiczna. Wysoka i przyjemna. Piwo bardzo ciekawe, warte sprobowania.
