Shared bomber, snifters. Hazy, murky. Pleasant whiskey booze aroma. Barrel aging seems to have mellowed the arrogance of the bastard.

Bottle poured murky brown with an off-white head and very little lacing. Aromas of oak, chocolate, cherry, and raisins. Flavor is medium bitter.

Pretty good - caged and cork, with no sound at all or pressure when I removed it, I was a bit worried. No need for worry. Very murky brown orange stuff, with a fine dotted lace, sparse, and a tiny bit of haze on top. Nose is heavy caramel, very barley wine like, a bit of dark fruit. On tip of tongue this is tingly, then a bit warming, and you feel the booze, a bit hot going down. A sipper.

love it. The Bastard is tamed a bit with the barrel aging. Overall taste I’d describe as coconut with bourbon. I really enjoy it, though it doesn’t have the hop asplosion you’d expect from something with the Bastard label. Love it a lot tho

Bottle cork and caged. Lots of caramel and malt and sweetness. Maybe some subtle whiskey, but not dominant at all. Arrogant Bastard/Bastard up a notch.

Pretty sweet up front. Big n boozy. Spice, yes, and still a touch of hops, but definitely more malty and sweet. More barrel presence than the 12 oz bourbon bastards for sure.

Bottle opened for Nudgerita’s wedding. My god it basically tastes like a rye whiskey. Seriously whiskey forward stuff and it works. Fairly boozy hit but still goes down well enough. Tasty drop and definitely one for the whiskey heads

Strong whiskey aroma coming off the red/orange/brown body with a light tan head. That whiskey pops out immediately in the taste with a sharp rye spiciness. Sugary sweetness wraps around along with a good alcohol bite. The whiskey seems to vaporize and fill your mouth so it’s like taking a shot with an Arrogant Bastard! That taste lingers long after the sip is over. Very tasty variation on a classic.

Un nez poivré, chaleureux de whiskey sur céréales caramélisés à grand feu. Un corps léger et bien chargés de cadavres d’houblons terreux trouve le moyen d’être délicat. Buvabilité bâtardement active.
