Let me just say right now this review may be a bit biased. My beer drinking "journey" started with this beer and I always find myself coming back to it. And I will declare right now Stone is my favorite beer company. Thier beers are not for the timid, the gargoyle has just punched me in the nuts a few times but of course he helps you up and burshes you off. In general all of the stone beers are pretty strong and this one started the tradition I think. Well anyway on to the arrogant bastard! Pours a dark cherry with a very light tan head that stays and laces very well. The smell is hops, alcohol and citrus fruits. A complex tate the hops jump out but I also pick out peach, dark fruits, fresh bread, and the alcohol sting just in the background. The mouthfeel is pretty thick but enjoyable. Not a chore to drink at all! At least for me. I could drink this stuff all night but after more then 2 bombers I would need to take a cab. As I said before stone is truly one of my favorite beer companies and I always love trying thier special releases. And they never let me down! Thier beer is always good and strong! This beer gave me an appreciation for craft beers in general so I do owe it somewhat of a debt. Never a bad choise but if your looking for something "lighter" then go with something rogue and don't mess with the gargoyle!

Stone Arrogant Bastard
I'm just not worthy !
Poured into pint glass
A: I'm just not worthy
S: Again, not worthy
T: Eh' . . . Still not worthy
M: I can't handle the worthiness
O: I sound like a Wayne's World episode I know. Maybe I'll come back to this one again someday. After all . . . There was a time that I could not stand ipa's either (parish the thought I know). But for now . . . Well, you guessed it, I'm not worthy and I'm ok with that.
