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...

Booyaka! The king of bastards! More malt, more hops, more bastard. Beautiful mahogany with rich creamy head. Great balance of mega malt and hyper hops. No alcohol comes through, just a toasty warmth. As good as expected from easily my fave brewery. Champion

It pours murky ruby with crimson tinges; the head is tan and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: grapefruit pith, fresh cut grass, pine resin, celery, toffee, alcohol, pepper, and licorice. The taste is lightly sweet that finishes fucking bitter.The palate is full bodied, and slightly sticky; the carbonation is medium; the finish is long and bitter. Overall, this beer is pretty dang American - insert edgy political humour.

beer_queue (124) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Bottled 10/12/16. Pours hazy, dark brown with a thick, fluffy beige head. Tons of fruits in the aroma (dates, figs, tangerines, & plums); some floral hops in the mix as well. Flavors arrive similarly with dark fruits leading; caramel & hops following behind. Actually finishes with an peppery, chalky bitterness along with booze. And that finish is the part where it falls off. Its got that medicinal (Theraflu) bitterness. Aftertaste is harsh & uninviting, much like Arrogant Bastard. Warms up with less bitterness but also becomes much more astringent & solvent-like with booze. It aint a drain pour but certainly not the best in its price range either.

ibrubeer (339) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Bomber. Delicious malty, hoppy aroma. Beautiful copper color, white head that lingers for a while. Little lacing, but understandable given alcohol content. Smooth hop flavor. Bitter aftertaste but pleasant. Full bodied. Overall a delicious beer, but strong.

kajser27 (1605) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 3, 2017
Hazy, deep amber to red colored, medium- beige creamy head, nice lasting. Aroma is of caramel, malt, dried fruits, some hard candy, orange, floral and citrus hops. Taste is medium+ sweet malt, caramel, orange hard candy, dried fruit, light chocolate, floral, citrus and fruity moderate notes, medium+ bitterness, dry finish. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, oily-sticky. Probably waited too long to get the most out of it but still very nice! (bottle, Bierhalle Deconinck, Vichte)

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2016 Tap at brewery in Escondido. 2004 version. Murky light mahogany with medium white head. Aroma is raisin, alcohol, and sweet feel. Sharp bite of sugar, alcohol, raisin, some tartness. Powerful beer with good complexity.

ogniskowicz (773) - POLAND - DEC 30, 2016
Potężne i absorbujące. Nawet nie wiem czy to się przyjemnie pije, ale to piwo robi kolosalne wrażenie. Potęga słodowej bazy, potęga chmielowych aromatw i potęga monstrualnej goryczki. Zupełnie niezbalansowane ale w tym szaleństwie jest metoda - z chęcią skosztowałbym jakiegoś barrel ageda :)

Huge malty beer with the hops to back it up. Pine and pepper with malt no roast but a tad breads and toast. Great rich mouthfeel and an everlasting malty finish.
