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...
Note: 2007 - 10%, 2008 & 2009 - 10.5%, 2010 - 11.2%, 2011 - 10.5%, 2012 - 11.2%, 2016 - 11%.

Bacterial (2931) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2014
Hazy dark amber pour on draft at Republic. Thick off white head. Malty nose. Big sweet taste, lots of hops and a big bitterness in the finish. Really nice. Big and kick ass for sure.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
14th March 2014, large bottle at a barbeque in Newport Beach, bought and took the bottle myself and didnt share it! Aggressive little bugger isnt it. Hops full on in the mouth, yet it has a sweeter maltier nose: bitter in flavour with a definite Barley wine undertone. A fine beer in all aspects.

AlmostHome (62) - Gulfport, Mississippi, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Good beer. Very malty. Strong. Thick head with a great brown color. Starts and ends strong. Like a loaf of bead. At 11.2% it gets your attention. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Experiment_Ale (1096) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2014
At Justins house warming party. Pours murky brown with white lacing. Aroma is cardboard, nice molasis figs, on the complex side. Taste, is as expected. Its a very nice barleywine, just not my style.

nihtila (3157) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Keg at Ushers, at 10.5%. Pours clear deep ruby. Nose is sweet burnt toffee, malts, dried fruits. Very nice. Taste is sweet oaky caramel or burnt toffee, more oak and wood, decent bitterness, loads of maltiness. Very nice. Needless to say but this kind of beer out of keg without 30mins warming simply tastes horribly boozy.

gunnar (8404) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2015
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours almost clear dark golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is heavy sweet and bitter, resiny and piney hops. Taste is llight sweet, like a barley wine with a decent dry hoppy finish, resiny and moreish.

Strong and rich, I'm sure I'd be happier drinking out of a glass, rather than a cup. Rich and malty, the hops really fade into the background for me on this one. The alcohol is always lurking in the background.
