I am a big fan of Stone brews, but I have not got around to reviewing many of them. Arrogant Bastard has not been one of my favorite of the Stone lineup, but it is very good to say the least. I am drinking this from a 22oz bomber in a pint glass. It pours a deep mohagany with a nice tan head that last for a litte while. AB has a very nice aroma with hints of roasted malt and and grapefruit hoppiness. The flavor is aggressive with a good bit of hops upfront and nice malt middle with a slight hint of Belgian candied sugar. It has quite a bit of bittering hops in the end and aftertaste. The aftertaste is a little harsh due to the bitterness and a small amount of alcohol warming which effects the drinkability. AB has a nice medium body and is a very drinkable beer if you are into aggressive beers. This a very solid beer from Stone, but my favorite of the lineup is still Ruination.
