12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Thick dense head, a head to be proud of. Color talks of tawny and is very clear. Delicate but pronounced citric piney hop aroma, bit of caramel and breadiness as well. Smooth, bit of crispness and a bit creamy. Caramel is quick, more of a toasted brown bread flavor. Clean citric hoppiness drops ample bitterness and a flavor that lingers for a long time ... caramel tone stays around as well but not as long as the hops.

A great session brew, amped up flavor. Good drinking for sure.

12oz brown bottle. No freshness date.

Pours a clear, bright chestnut/rich dark amber coloured beer topped with a creamy, finger thick, off-white head. Nice stick and retention. Restrained hop aroma, floral, touch of grass with a slight toasty malt character in the nose.

A somewhat thick, rich-body, even a bit chewy and slick on the palate ... Tight, tingly carbonation. Hop flavours are herbal, sharp with salty/lime note of citrus, leaf, pine, wood and earth. Dry, a bit astringent. Malt character is pretty much all tied up in the body, yet some caramel (bit buttery, too) notes sneak through, along with notes of toasted bread, a slight twang of roasted malts, peanut skin, splash of fruity prune. At times, a bit vinous in character, too. Dry finish, with raw leaf and grain notes.

Who beat up the Arrogant Bastard? A less powerful, more sessionable offering from Stone, yet still complex. I like it, and I'd like to see more brews like this from them.
