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...

nihtila (3170) - 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.

MaBeer1972 (1897) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle from Julios. A clear deep amber. Tan head that settles to a thin lace. Aroma of earthy sweet fruit. Alcohol is very well masked. Flavor is deep and complex. Well balanced bitterness and very smooth drinking. Notes of chocolate, prune, herbs, pine and coffee. Long lingering bitter finish.

scotchzombie (553) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Pours deep mahogany brown with a very nice yellow-tan head. Aroma is potent caramel malts with some citrus hop. Taste is wham-bam thank you ma'am sticky molasses malt with some cotemp bitterness and a very happy aftertaste. Not too boozy despite its ABV. Bold but a bit sweet.

Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy red. Ring of head. Big aroma of piney, resinous hops and strawberry jam. Taste seems exactly like the regular version but bigger and more powerful. Retains good drinkability though. Good stuff.

Zlotta (2514) - Hagen, GERMANY - APR 14, 2016
0.15 l on tap at Beertemple. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-fruity aroma of caramel, red fruits, some raisins and molasses. Sweetish-malty taste of caramel, raisins, prunes, molasses and red fruits, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter finish with some boozy hints. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very sweet, not that complex but very tasty.
