Acquired as part of the 4-pack Arrogant Bastard set.

I wasn't worthy enough to drink this beer 10 years ago in college as I specifically remember the drain pour. Now I understand the words spoken on the label; Stone pretty much nailed the strong ale style here.

This beer is fantastic. Dark and flavorful, the way i like it. A tad bitter, but the bitterness accentuates the dark coffee/chocolate notes. A great beer overall.
