COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

NachlamSie (2832) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a long lasting, level white head. A good level of pineapple and grapefruit is present in the nose with a vanilla sweetness and a bit of smoked wood. Iím not that crazy about the flavor. The level of oak infusion is very tasteful, not overwhelming, but I think it clashes oddly with the pineapple suggestions which are present. I do like the biscuity flavor and mildly spiced finish quite well. I could drink one of these, but I wouldnít seek it out again. IMHO, the regular Arrogant Bastard is tastier.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a white head. Has no lacing. Hints of hooooops, and some smoked wood flavor, and spices. Finishes with a sweet hop taste on the tongue.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle from trade. Pours a dark amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of hops and more hops. Taste is very citrusy with a very noticeable alcohol bite. Flavors of the oak is barely noticeable with the spices and grapefruit winning out on the finish. I was expecting a little more than I got from this brew. Not bad, just nothing special.

dra19 (89) - holland, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Pours a caramel color with a fizzy head. Not enough oak flavors but it was a good beer none the less.

3L 2005 bottle shared with T and D. Originally served a little to cold but when you have three liters to get through there is plenty of time for the beer to warm up and it did just that. This one has definitely mellowed over time and most of the delicious hops that Iím used to in my AB had faded into a distant memory. Poured a thick murky brown with an okay head. I could detect some oak notes and malty molasses and even a little vanilla in this one. The flavor was smooth with slight oakiness and malt. Pretty good but I need to try this one again fresh.

crazyvin (2009) - New York, USA - MAY 5, 2007
rather disappointing compared too the regular arrogant. some minor oak notes which smoothed out some sweetness, but the beer seemed over carbonated and real gassy.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a cloudy thick caramel colour, with a small fizzy tan head. Nose of oak, chocolate and citrusy hops. My mouth is lit up with bitter hops and sweet malts. Finishing dry with bitter hops leaving a tartness on your lips.

badlizard (5536) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Oak and floral aroma. Initial sweet caramel malty taste followed quickly by the taste of oak and bitter hops, some alcohol taste shows through. Dry, bitter, some what fruity finish with a very pleasant lingering hoppy perfume taste.

Cheers to Boboski, happy b-day! (3 liter bottle) Smokey, spicey aroma, oaky and tanins, with some chocolate. Dark amber with a huge white head. Citrus hops, smokey flavor, oaky with tanins, spicey and piney hops. Awesome beer, thanks bobo for sharing!

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2007
Very cloudy amber with moderate head formation. Aroma is strong yet nondescript citrus, caramel and moderate simplistic oakiness. A weird combination. A somewhat unctuous oakiness dominates on the sweetish beginning of the sip, followed by some perfumey hops and the expected strong bitterness. I like bits and pieces here, but itís an odd combination. Iím a bastard fan as well, but I donít see the point of this beer. It doesnít work. At all. Hops in large quantity and oak simply do not mix.
