Don't take my advice personally, I'm just not much of a fan of strong ale's.

I thought this one was just pretty good, not great. Their IPA beers are so much better in my opinion.

Not a fan of the overall taste, not for the price at least. I've had much better beers than this, though it was highly recommended.

This is a big, badass beer. I don't have much to add to the previous reviews. Arrogant Bastard looks great, smells good, and has layers of tastes. Caramel malts, candy, a bit of coffee and cola. This is definitely not a session beer - it kicks you right in the teeth, then smiles at you.
