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...

Pours a hazy copper creamy white head, aroma is toasted bread and some caramel, low hop aroma. Taste has lots of rich breast malty some pumpernickel and some caramel, medium to low bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Reminds me a lot of a doppelbock. Medium body medium carbonation.

LeopoldStoch (201) - Green, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2006
2006 bottle. Color is a nice gleaming dark red. Pretty nice looking with a little creamy toffee colored head. The aroma is of course similar to arrogant bastard...but on steroids. Aroma of sweet syrupy candied apples, sweet malts, and not much hop aroma to speak of at all. The taste i very smooth upfront with malty sweetness coming through, followed by an almost over the top bitterness for a strong ale...but it works well for this beer. I wouldnt mind trying an older bottle to see if the malt shines through over the bitterness after a couple years. Good stuff!!!

2006 bomber. Almost opaque ruby brown color, lasting khaki head. Strong aroma that I could smell from a yard away of wheat, brown sugar, strawberry, lots of stuff -- insert aroma here, this beer probably had it. Bracing bitterness the whole way through but also extremely smooth and drinkable. Starts sweet before the "punishing" (sorry Stone, it aint that bad) attack on the palate. Taste of berries, brown sugar, creamy mouthfeel. Awesome beer!

jlieber17 (201) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 8, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 22oz bottle. Im not the biggest AB fan, but the Double is great. Pours reddish-brown with an off-white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit, vanilla. Taste is similar but sweeter, maltier, bigger; not overwhelmingly bitter at all. Very well-balanced. The abv definitely gets you, though.

Deep red-Brown color with a nice tan head. Aroma is citrus, pine, caramel. You can taste the alcohol from the first sip. Also has a citrusi, hoppy flavor with a sweet hint. Did not like it because Of the alcohol taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2006
Best "barley wine" ever. Deep red color with creamy off white/tan head. The taste was very robust and very enjoyable. Awesome ABV. I wish I could promote this beer more, a new favorite. Wish it was more readily available.

This is just plain a WONDERFUL beer! Huge hop nose! Massive body, great alcholic warmth, yet well balanced by hoppy flavors. Truly the most arrogant beer around!

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Pours hazy dark amber with a off-white head. Aroma is cookies and carmel, heavy grapefruit, and lightly of broth and hints of vinilla. Flavor starts well balanced and moderate, nice malt backbone, carmel and dark fruit, with grapefruit juice again. Alcohol warming in the finish. Medium to full bodied, creamy and a bit oily, lively carbonated.

1pt 6oz single from 6-Pack & Subs, Lancaster, PA...pours hazy deep amber, small off-white head...sweet smell of malts, dark fruits (bit of a musty smell as it warms)...flavor of raisins, licorice, hops, alcohol (grape juice as it warms)...smooth mouthfeel...lots going on here...to me, not as good as the AB and OAB (havent had the ODB yet) but still, really good.

Despite supposedly being more "evil" than its smaller brother, it is actually much more balanced and better, even if the hops are more assertive. Big thick malty palate that is right at the line between being nice and being syrupy. Loads of American hop aroma and taste, well balanced by carame;ly malt flavors. Nice.
