This strong ale is not to be reckoned with! Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale is slick and full with a long, exquisitely bitter finish. It pours a dark, ruby, nearly-midnight red color with a one-fingered, off-white head. Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale features a unique aroma boasting of toasted nuts, chocolate malts, and even a little grapefruit. The flavor is comparable to an American barleywine tasting of bittersweet chocolates with accents of caramel malts and pine resin.
