Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale

No matter how many different beers you drink, there are always a few that hold a special place in your heart, and fridge.  For me, Arrogant Bastard has been one of those beers for many years now.  I always have a few bottles on hand, and if I encounter it on tap, odds are that’s what I’ll be drinking.

As the marketing implies, Arrogant Bastard is a big brash beer that doesn’t hold anything back.  Many are surprised to learn that it’s “only” 7.2% abv after trying it for the first time, because of the big, bold, boozy flavors.  It pours with a nice robust cream colored head that clings to the glass, and will hang around for quite some time.  There’s a fair amount of malty aroma mixed with a sweet booziness that’s a sign of things to come. When you take the first sip, your taste buds scream out that they’re getting the same experience your nose did, just turned to 11.  There are big bold toasted malts, a nice hit of bitter hops (though this is not at all an overly hopped beer), a hint of syrupy sweetness, and a warming alcohol finish.  You then get a slightly bitter aftertaste reminiscent to green wood.  The level of carbonation is perfect for the style, and the alcohol makes itself known without distracting from the flavors and experience of the beer.  The mouthfeel isn’t quite as thick as you’d expect, but this is a heavy setting beer, so one or two should do it for an evening.

When I think of strong ales Arrogant Bastard comes to mind as the quintessential example of the style.  It’s truly a beer that hits the bull’s-eye on what it’s trying to accomplish without any gimmicks.  So, as I enjoy this Arrogant Bastard, I’m reminded why it’s always had a place in my fridge, and always will as long as it’s made.
