AdolfoCC (79) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 27, 2016
Servida en tulipán. APARIENCIA: de color rubí intenso, se observa ligeramente turbia y ligera actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color beige, de mediana retención y burbujas abiertas. AROMA: se aprecian notas a caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros, los lúpulos usados con características cítricas, ligeramente las notas de la barrica de bourbon: vainilla, coco tostado. SABOR: de entrada un amargor moderado, seguido de notas de bourbon, coco tostado, vainilla, roble muy ligerito, atrás las notas de caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros, lúpulo con notas cítricas; en el retrogusto queda ese amargor moderado, sin embargo y al igual que en su versión normal, queda esa sensación jabonosa en boca algo molesta. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio ligero, carbonatación media baja. RESUMEN: Una buena cerveza a la cual la barrica de Bourbon le da interesantes notas, sin embargo al igual que la versión normal, deja esa sensación jabonosa en el amargor residual.

RCx240 (193) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
Reddish amber in colour, with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, alcohol, faintly sweet. Taste is bitter, earthy, molasses, charred wood. Finishes with a prominent bourbon note. Full bodied. Oily texture, average carbonation. Quite nice.

Rask0lnikov (433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 23, 2016
330ml bottle. Transparrent ruby brown colour. Thin white head. Sticky froth. Hints of raisins, hints of vanilla, hints of bourbon in the aroma. Really nice mouthfeel. Hoppy refreshing beginning. Hints of fruit. Bourbon in the middle. Quite bitter finish. Hints of bourbon in the aftertaste. Silky, refreshing, rather medium bodied, good beer.

suurjuust (2585) - ESTONIA - APR 22, 2016
Tap at TCBW. Red amber beer. Nose is pretty "barrely", vanilla, malt, sweetness, wood, caramel. Flavor is pretty hoppy, almost herbal, bourbon notes, some alcohol, vanilla and oak. Finishes with grapefruit, hops and dryness. Goes down smooth.

karpik (406) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 20, 2016
Caramel, vanilla, some dark fruits in aroma. Pours mahogany with nice and stable beige creamy head. Taste is medium sweet with caramel, fruits and vanilla. Powerful bitterness at the finish makes this one bit unbalanced but ok, it would not be the Arrogant Bastard without it. Overall solid but the barrel notes could be more exposed.

Kauge (1266) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2016
Tap sample at Tallinn Craft Beer Festival. Beautiful dark orange colour. Sweetish-salty malt and bourbon aroma, the bourbon is in first row but not smothering anything else. The delicate nuances of the barrel are present too. I love how the alcohol is kept on a leash. Among the nicer BBA brews I’ve had.

Jurgos (136) - POLAND - APR 16, 2016
Aromat wyraźnie wanillia, bardzo przyjemny. Beczka robi robotę. W smaku czuć słodową stronę, ale też wanillia się wysuwa na pierwszy plan. Bardzo pijalne, zdradliwie pijalne.
