colore ambrato scuro schiuma pannosa persistente... naso molto aggressivo di luppolo resinoso che si mischia con un intenso caramellato e tostato.. palato molto delicato invece che contrasta con lodore cos intenso... finale amaro non esagerato e molto elegante... eccellente stone

The oaking has shot that pesky cat that was pissing in their brew kettles.The pine forest is eliminated and this is now a well balanced brew.I cant believe its the same brewer.Top shelf product.No sweet taste for a 7.2% brew.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Citrus notes, primarily orange on the nose with a hint of darker fruits. In the mouth the kick of sharp citrus is immediately followed by a sweet, dark fruit malt which fades to hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is quite present throughout which gives it an element of dryness, but the malt remains dominant. The oak is not particularly noticeable in itself, but it defiantly smooths out the bumps in Arrogant Bastard, which is a welcome element to the brew.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle: Jeroboam. Pours dark with a thick head. A little bit of hops in the aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty. Smooth drinking. A little agressive for my tastes.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pour from 12 oz. bottle. Cloudy russet color with fluffy off white head which laces nicely as it dissipates. Aroma of warm leather and grass. Hops far outweighs the taste of malt but even then is wrestled to the ground by the oak. Light malty citrus in the finish. Too bold for me to have more than one, but a nice fuller beer that could pair nicely with more flavorful dishes, pungent cheeses, heavy garlic or tomato sauces.

FatTony (188) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2011
12 ounce bottle- poured out a deep golden-red with a slightly orange head. Head was thick and firm, left ringed lacing the entire glass. Aroma was sharp, citrus with a sour undertone. Taste was citrus with so much woody flavor I thought I might get a splinter. A sour after-bite clamped my jaws shut. Palate was light and airy. Unique, but not as good as the name implies.

This brew has a slightly more intriguing than AB, has a nice after taste and a little more bitter than AB. Pours with a nice creamy head and a beautiful reddish color.

Maybe its the cold, but this has not impressed as other Stone brews have. Woody citrus nose that gets better with warmth. First impression is of earthy, grassy and somewhat boozy hops. Long bitter finish preceded by cask like flavours of rich malt. I enjoyed this brew despite its steep price.

Angry (bottle). I thought it was smoother and more refined than the regular Bastard, but the hopiness still kicked me in the teeth. Finish lasted quite a while and was more pleasant than the first bitterness you get. Overall impression was helped by the cool bottle.

12 fl oz bottle bought via Beers of Europe. Dark amber/red beer with little aroma and a thin lacy head that soon disappeared. Some oak on the tongue but mainly bags of bitterness with hops in the background, giving the beer great balance and taste. A complex & satisfying ale well worth seeking out.
