COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a lacerative muther of a beer. The evil big brother of Arrogant Bastard Ale. It is strongly suggested you stay far, far away from this beer. Those foolish enough to venture close enough to taste will experience a punishingly unforgiving assault on the palate. Course theres always the masochists...

excellent beer the alcohol is very present and has a devastating effect. not for the faint of heart. Very pleasantly bitter aftertaste, not unlike Campari, but not as sweet strong hop presence

Good beer 2006 version. One of Stones better creations than in the past. Alcohol is is present but not as overbarring as in the 10th aniversary. The caramel and hops balance nicely. A l get a slight odd aftertaste that I cant put my finger on. Good beer not bad for teh price either (3.99 for a bomber).

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 The sweet caramel aroma hit me in the face from a foot away. Very strong, and the flavor doesnt disappoint. Textured malts a plenty, with some hops, although not as much as I expected form Stone. Extremely well balanced. Detectable alcohol, although not too much for 10%. After two I was smiling and couldnt stop. I tried. I had one a year ago that was good, and then bought two today from a local beer shop (The Bottle Shoppe, Bellingham, WA) that had been cellared for a year. Aged very, very well.......Highly recommended!!!

Man...This stuff is rough. Almost undrinkable, but somehow delicious. Mind boggling...

Pours much like regular Bastard. Aroma is noticeably maltier. Damn does this smell good. Huge aromas of dark fruit and sugar malts with a lot of citrusy hops to boot. Flavor is much he same with a big hit of malt followed by lots of bitterness. Alcohol is slightly noticeable. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

An excellent malty like Bonds like brother of the original. Its almost too much to handle but the boys at Stone Brewery do it right. There is a surprising malty aroma to the normal Stone metallic aroma goodness. The inital taste impressions are deep and vast with malt, hops and a heavy freaking note of citrus. the second thing to go is the malt, being 10% you had to expect is somewhere. It finishes surprisingly smooth. a great beer!

this is my favorite stone beer so far. i had this out of the huge three liter bottle that was about a year old. great huge beer! citrus taste but had a great maltiness to back it up. better than arrogant, easily.
