4.33/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Served from a 22oz. bomber into a pint glass.

A-Pours a deep cherry red with nice mahogany layers and a one finger head that stays seemingly throughout the entire pint.

S-A bit lack luster for both stone and especially one aptly named "arrogant bastard". You can smell the cherry and earthly oak elements, but the strong is not as intoxicating as I may have liked. That being said I have had bastard previously to writing a review, so knowing the nose did not live up to the massive taste may leave me a bit biased.

M-Perfection. This is ideally how a beer should feel. Thick enough to coat the palate and fill your mouth, but still surprisingly carbonated, making it much crisper and more refreshing than I would have expected. The feel cuts the huge taste just enough to make the beer slightly smoother than it would have been, which proves to make all the difference.

T-Huge astounding flavors that do not quit long after you have swallowed the sip. A harsh woodsy flavor is immediately introduced, that is cut by the sweetness of the cherry and citrus. All in all the beer certainly lives up to its name while still maintaining a good and unique flavor.

O-One of the best named beers in the world lives up to its hype time and time again
