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...

Ruby with small golden head. Grass, rasins, sweetness in the aroma. Soft feel. Grass, rasins, hops, sweetness and very complex. Lingering dry and bitter aftertaste. I dont like it. I love it.

Pours brown with a creamy head. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, wth some maltyness. Taste is bitter, sweet, hoppy. Full bodied with a loooong bitter after taste. An outstanding beer

jgentgesdo (693) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 11, 2005
Pours beautiful ruby brown, smallish off-white head, lacing that oils the sides of the glass. Nose is complicated. Initially I got creamy caramel and earthy malts. This gives way to a smoky, slightly aged whisky barrel note. The flavor is astounding. Oily, buttery malt fights with grapefruit hops, balanced yet still bitter, neutron star gravity. Mouthfeel is oily with alcohol and ester rushing. Aftertaste lingers and sends you back for more. Therefore...

Beaver (1722) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2005
2004 22 oz bottle. Pours a reddish copper with a big fluffy off-white (almost orangeish) head that retains well and laces the glass. The first pour is clear, the second has some miniscule floaties.

The aroma is piney, grassy hops, some pineapple fruitiness, and a dose of spicy alcohol.

The flavor is sweet fruity caramel malts, pepper, and some woodiness followed by a big spicy alcoholic hop finish. It is medium to full bodied and fairly velvety, with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Overall, an excellent brew. Big in every way (especially hops and alcohol), yet not overbearing and fairly well balanced - it is almost too sweet at times. The more I drink, the smoother it gets! Reminds me quite a bit of Great Divides Old Ruffian.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 11, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2007 Bought and drank the 3 liter version of this beer with a friend and had a really great evening. Very strong but goes down very easy. Lots of malt character but not as sweet, thankfully, as I thought it might be. Good hops presence to make for an extraordinarily well-balanced-for-having-a-high-alcohol-content beer. The alcohol is very prominient, however, but mellows with age.

flemdawg (561) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2005
Ruby red color with a foamy head that leaves some great lacing down the glass. A rather hoppy aroma(floral and grapefruit) with a lot of sweetness as well, almost sugar like. Ther was some alcohol as it warms. A huge kick of bitter hops in the taste. But a sweet, almost too sweet, malt backbone keeps this from becoming too one dimentional. it is still very extreme. Thick syrupy mouthfeel, clingy all the way down.
