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...

Thanks to TannerTavernBoys for sharing this monster. Aroma is sweet caramel with heavy alcohol presence and piney hops. Nice brown color to the beer with a white head that forms a halo around the glass. Flavor is very sweet with caramel malt and toffee. The finish is lots of piney hops and even more alcohol flavor. It is a bit thick and syrupy. A nice beer, but I prefer the Arrogant Bastard. The alcohol was not at all hidden in this. Definitely worth trying though.

Pours a very reddish amber with a small white head that laces the glass. Sweet, floral aroma, it definitely tells the tale of the road ahead. Big, sweet, and sticky malt blast up front is met with a lesser hop finish, with a trace of burning alcohol. Mouthfeel is certainly thick and sticky, but its balanced enough to make the 22oz bottle enjoyable, not a chore.

Stop. Hammer Time. Violence in a bottle. This will turn the baddest mofos into little piteous heaps of blood and tears. Itll send shivers down your spine and decrease your fertility by 23%. This stuff is too good for a puny mortal like myself. In short: Awesome.

Pours a syrupy deep amber color, kind of brownish, with a thick crop of tan foam. Nose is thick and sweet, with hints of caramel and citrus. Flavor is thick as well. Heavy sweet malts give way to an overpowering alcohol vibe, has a heavy heat on it. Again with stone, you get a beer that isnt terribly good, Its just a kick in the mouth.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
Dark copper with a nice tan head and great lacing. Big dark fruit aroma of plum/raisin. Lots of malts upfront with a great bitter kick at the end. Lots of lingering bitterness at the finish. I prefer the regular bastard but this ones a winner too.

A great beer that I thoroughly enjoyed drinking. Great color, aroma, minimal head, and a taste that was both sweet and a bit fruity at the same time.

I brought a HUGE bottle to a board meeting to celebrate the launch of a startup; I brought it to make the point that a truly unique product can sell at a premium price and does not need to competet with commodities like Budweiser solely on retail price. Appearance is good ... a striking copper gold, crystal clear, with a frothy tan head. Nose is sweet toffee, sweet fruits, and alcohol. Taste is sweet toffee, dried fruit, cherries, and an alcohol burn; the strong bitterness is not quite sufficien t to compensate for the alcohol. Mouth is syruppy. The pieces are all ok, the total package is a little better than ok, but with a bit more carbonation to cut the syrup and less of an alcohol presence this would be much better. I strongly prefer Arrogant Bastard, Ruination, Smoked Porter, and a few others from Stone.
