Honestly, without question the best beer I've ever tasted, and I can find not a single flaw. Bought a pint sized bottle from Marty's liquors on Harvard ave. Pours a brown color with a beautiful white head that retains throughout. Lacing is perfect. Smells of fruit, pineapple maybe? Taste is perfection at its most perfectionist. Fruit, hops, and others which my palate cannot pick out. The entire palate tingles. I could drink these all day, or until I passed out.

Bought the last of the 22oz bombers from a local grocery chain the other day, boy was I happy to finally find a place with these still in stock. The smell of this beer is exactly what the title implies, a double arrogant bastard. Once youve taken the first sip though is where all comparisons stop.
This beer has a flavor profile that original bastard couldnt even come close to touching. You are first greeted with sweet malt/caramel flavors followed by an EXTREMELY well balanced hoppy finish which almost has a sweet whisky like aftertaste. The mouthfeel of this beer is near perfection, not to carbonated and the silky smooth thickness that ive come to love in Stone brews. I don't get how someone could put this beer down, it is a perfectly balanced roller coaster of flavors. If you see one buy it before I do.
