Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale, 22 oz. bomber: Another fine product from Stone. The Arrogant Bastard Ale is pretty dark in color, a dark amber I would say. The head is pretty thin, of an even consistency and despite being thin, does last and laces well. An aroma of malts and subtle hops comes through. While the Stone IPA and double IPA are huge in the hops department, this brew focuses on the malt, and the hops compliment the malt very well. Expect a flavorful but balanced experience if you try the Arrogant Bastard, with a focus on the malt.

Pours a copper color with a nice fluffy head. Taste is medium bodied, great caramel malt upfront with some nice balancing hops on the back end. Refreshing not to have a hop bomb from Stone and this a is a great all around beer. Super smooth with great drinkability, this beer is dangerously good.

This brew pours a deep copper color, almost brown with a three finger head, some of which is still present at the bottom of the glass. Heavy lacing remains in the glass throughout.

The smell is of floral hops, carmel, toasted grains and also some spice I can not identify; possibly pepper.

The mouthfeel is biscuty and chewy. There is also a slight grainy taste.

The hop oils dominate from start to finish. However mixed in is the carmel malt then the toasted grain and biscut taste. There is also a spice, it might be pepper. The taste starts and finishes with a clean floral hop taste. The alchohol taste is well masked.

Overall this is a good brew but I believe a few more malts would balance it out.
