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...

Murky dark copper with a nice tan head and great lacing. Big plum/raisin malt nose. Malt up front with a great bitter back ground. Lots of lingering bitterness. Very smooth and silky texture. Good beer.

Had this one straight from the bottle. Malty aroma with a strong, bitter hoppy flavor that kicks you in the mouth. Lingering hop flavor that lasts and lasts. Good beer if you are ready for a smack in the head.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Rerate. Theres just too much noticeable alcohol in this beer. Arrogant Bastard is better. I came across this at a tiny wine store in Roanoke Virginia and couldnt believe my eyes. Never had anything quite like it. Pours reddish brown and offwhite head. Malt dominates but a strong hop bitterness is present. Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada bigfoot barleywine. Alcohol present in after taste. Outstanding

Bottle. Good brew. Dark brown hazy hue with a average frothy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and smoky tone. Flavor is heavy with a long bitter finish. Medium to full body with a moderate alcohol finish.

Deep, Amber, Ruby Red. Tan, off-white head. Malt aroma with an alcohol-nut profile, somewhat brandy-like. Sweet malt blended nicely with a nice alcohol kick. Hops kick in afterwards, bitterness mixing nicely. OOps, well, my gums are numb now, and i am having trouble typing. This is delicious, potent stuff. Very alcoholic, and it shows in the taste and aroma. I think masochists will love, and serious strong ale lovers too.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - MAY 6, 2005
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown color with a very bubbly tan head. Caramelly malty aroma. Strong malt flavor with a sweet hoppy finish. You can definately taste the alcohol, but its much smoother than I expected for something so potent. Great stuff!

braudimusprime (75) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Pretty much the ultimate strong ale. Pours a pretty deep red with an off-white head. Sweet malt aroma and initial flavor, giving way to a strong bitterness with an alcoholic kick. Definitely not for the faint of heart, swirls and moves in the mouth while the malts do their thing. Cheers to Stone for producing this beast.

i have to say that i like the arrogant bastard over the double bastard. the double has too strong an alcoholy flavor which overpowers the others. a bit sweet with nice hoppiness. a decent beer.

jfm (1724) - Holbk, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
Amber color with a beige head. The taste is a sweet malty body with a massive hoppy flavor coming in to dominate. Very nice

Pours a nice copper colour with a medium head. Sweet malt and floral hop aroma. Syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet malt tast upfront before the hop assault hits. Finish is surprisingly drier than expected. Alcohol is apparent in the taste. This is a good beer but somewhat overhyped.
