Nice aroma with caramel, raisins, wood, pipe tobacco, and a little alcohol. I thought the flavor was surprisingly mild--smooth and malty with caramel and dark fruit flavors. Bittersweet finish with a lot of drying alcohol. Another fine effort from Stone.
On tap at Fakin Zagreb. Dark golden/amber coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, dried fruits and caramel in the nose. Heavy sweet malty, caramel, notes of marzipan and quite noticable alcohol with light herbal bitter finish with again notes of alcohol. Hrc_Cro (668) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 11, 2018
UPDATED: APR 13, 2018 0.3l draught. Cloudy amber red color with white head. Aroma of cough syrup, caramel, malt, honey and floral aroma. Taste is sweet and bitter with alcohol present in taste, but not overwhelming. FireGlider (774) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 11, 2018
UPDATED: APR 11, 2018 On tap at Fakin bar, Zagreb. Amber color with medium brownish head. Fruity and malt aroma with floral notes. Light bitter floral taste. Marko (6519) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 8, 2018
Tap at Fakin, Zagreb. Misty red-amber body, tan head if I remember correctly. Boozy barleywineish malty aroma, choco-caramel, light marzipan, alcohol. Malt-driven dry candish malty taste - quite lovely - edged by some alcohol but also by a nicely distinct hoppy bitterness, very well integrated and a perfect counterpoint to the malt assault. I was never impressed by the regular Arrogant Bastard (there, I said it), somewhat wimpy for all its bluster when I've had it, but its big brother is definitely an excellent beer. hrabren (2119) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 7, 2018

Opaque amber in color with minimal head from the tap. Smell is molasses. Taste has some good caramel flavors. Slightly syrupy in taste, but not feel. Astringent alcohol all the way through. The bitterness from the healthy dosing of hops is welcome, but gets a little comingled with the alcoholic bite that didn't feel well-covered. mithe (2025) - Opava & Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 15, 2018

no nie jestem masochistą, będę się wedle zaleceń trzymał z daleka od tego piwa. słodowy potwór, ani do jedzenia, ani do picia, w rzeczy samej gorszy brat pojedynczego aroganta, trochę parodia mocnego piwa kraftowego, wierzę że zamierzona. Erzengel (10206) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2018
2015er version, many thanks to Werckmeister for organising this bottle! Smooth mild floral intense beginning. Fruity, warming and malty grainy. Pine, malt, warming floral. Round and fresh, smooth, sticky but still sessionable! Great stuff!
