COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Tap. Amber/brown with medium beige head and nice lacing. Aroma of malt and caramel. Medium body with some alcohol warmth, a very big malt presence, and a bitter hop finish. Very Nice.

*22 oz Bomber at home* Pours a deep amber, has very minimal nose beneath a thin white head. Has a dry hop front followed by a mild sweetness with a slight oily feel on the palate. Definitely a bold big hop beer and worthy of a session, even at over 7%.

bellco33 (169) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Poured from bottle into pint glass: pours reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malt, and a little earthy. Taste is caramel, nutty, very malty but nicely balanced with a lot of hops. Bitter finish, medium to heavy body, slightly astringent. Good beer!

ChiGuy68 (346) - Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Tasted from a bomber. It poured a reddish brown with a quickly dissipating, beige head that left streaky lacing. Aroma of sweat alcohol and malt. Taste of spiced malt with a hopped finish.

pablo951 (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Had it out of a bomber! Pours a nut brown clear color with a thin but lasting yellowish head. The aroma is of deep hop and malt and the taste is a strong hop malt taste, thick even, with a oak bourbon finish.

A really really good beer. Deep dark color, copper but almost red. Good head. Great hoppy flavor. Smooth malts. A really phenomenal brew. Try the Oaked Arrogant Bastard if you can find it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great balance between the hops and malts. Hops up front with amazing sweetness from middle to end. An amazing beer for the weather right now (0 degrees).

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Donít believe the naysayers, this beer is not bitter or hoppy at all. Remarkable maltiness and very smooth and drinkable. An amazing beer to behold.
