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...

Bottle pours orange/red amber with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, berries, cocoa, and a good dose of citrus hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of cherry, pine, and a touch of red licorice. Overall body is relatively malty and the hops are aggressive.

22 oz rocket, cellared 6 months. Pours a cloudy copper with a medium off-white head. Some lacing. Good malty character. Somewhat boozy aroma. A certain resin/hop flavor present that would have been more pleasant if cellared for 1 year or more.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
On tap at the ACBF. Murky brown pour with almost no head. Big citrus and resinous hops with an equally heavy caramel backbone and an almost woodiness. The palate is almost identical with a big grapefruit hoppiness backed up with caramel maltiness and that little woody hint. Finish lasts days with a long bitterness and slight warming.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2011
22oz bottle. Mildly hazy dark ruby red color, Light khaki head fading to minimal and leaving some lacing. Honestly, at 11.2%, I was fully expecting this to taste like shit. Im pleasantly surprised. First impression I get is a nice, creamy, woody aroma. Peppery aftertaste. I like the resin flavor that the hops provides. Really complex, I keep discovering new impressions with every sip... Gets better as you go. Of course, alcohol warmth all the way through, but there is no bite or burn - it actually works pretty well, as long as your sipping. The palate is great, too - texture isnt too syrupy, and the carbonation is subtle but present. Just enough so that it goes down smooth. Taste is a mix of bitter, little sweet, and mild warmth. A strong one that manages to not taste awful.

TheDazz (1) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2011 does not count
Caramel, pine, citrus, grapes, candy corn, toffee-like flavor that comes in with raisins. The alcohol is almost completely masked by the complex flavors. Medium to full body creaminess that engulfed the mouth perfectly. Light Carbonation, just a hint of alcohol warmth going down. It leaves the lips sticky and the mouth feeling dry from the metallic hops. A dangerous easy drinking high abv. beer that should be sipped.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2011
On keg at The BrewDog Bar. Pours a deep ruby colour with a thin beige head. Aroma of alcohol, passion fruit, grapefruit, sherry and pine. Flavours of plum pudding, sherry and treacle with alcohol quite present. Mild carbonation and a warming alcohol finish. A little metallic right at the end though.

Intense. This beer lives up to its name and description, very complex aroma and super bitter shock and linger to the taste buds. Extremely dry, bitter and alcohol after taste but surprisingly smooth and easy to drink (especially for the 10+ ABV)
