I had Arrogant Bastard about 2 years ago for the first time. The thing that originally caught my eye was the name. Ever since the first time I had the Arrogant Bastard my nickname became the Arrogant Bastard, Everywhere my friends and I may go if there is Arrogant Bastard available it is the beer I will purchase.

"You can not be serious man, a tie?!"
Robert the Bruce Vs John McEnroe. Luscious, sweet maltiness against brash, Cascadian shouts. This beer is the one that invites non-believers over towards the light. Full malteser mouthfeel with concurrent bitter hungriness.
The Jesus of Beers.

Served in 16 oz tulip glass

A: Super dark cherry red color, dark blonde head

S: Not too much aroma but is warm smelling

T: Dark, round, Roasty, bitter taste, a little espresso or sumthin toasty like that. Simple but very tasty.

M: Bitter definitely but is a good aftertaste.

O: Kind of a classic ale the way it smells and tastes but the appearance blew me away the most, great cherry red color. seen this one a lot and finally tried it and liked it very much

This is a mans beer! Full of flavor and hops. If bud light is your go to beer, this is not one for you. My hat is off to Stone Brewing Co for the great label on the 22oz bottle.

This beer pours a very reddish color, with a one finger creamy head that turns to frothy, bubbly streaks down the glass.

The smell? Hops, hops, and more hops!. Overall a good smell. Very earthy, and very pleasing if you're a big beer lover.

This beer has a very aggressive taste. As I said, this is a mans beer. Very hoppy and full of flavor. A nice mix of fruits, spice, and outdoorsy flavor. This would make a great tailgate beer in this fall. Try this beer ad you won't be dissapointed. Another hit from Stone
