RLB YEHA 05. 3 liter bottle. For some reason I think I liked this better on tap at kennett than out of the bottle. But I only have notes on the bottle and not the tap so Ill go with what I have. Pours a bit cloudy nice amber with a good sticky beige head. Aroma is a bit oxidized, with a medium amount of oak and just slight hints of vanilla and a bit of smoke. Earthy flavor mixes with the caramel malts, but I think the hops have diminished significantly and left a bit more oxidized flavors. Body was a bit lifeless as I think some of the carbonation may have left as well. Overall this one just seemed more mellow than the tap version and significantly more mellow than a regular AB. Interesting overall though.

Deep garnet in color. Huge head with nice lace. Sweet, mellow oak, hops, vanilla nose. Oak really comes through and the hops are subdued. Alot more finesse than the regular bastard.

OldGrowth (3002) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose, Pine, chocolate, caramel, nutty. Pine was big. Excellent tad hazy brownish red color, nice head that stayed, good lacing. Bittersweet flavors. Like aroma with a vanilla addition. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. Very nice indeed. Oak added another level to the Arrogant One. Shared this with some people who, while don’t Rate, were all psyched to try this one. Glad I bit for the 3L bottle.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2005
(Thanks to Kevin, 12/10/05 Indy gathering) Has a huge barleywine aroma, stickey floral and citrus hops and some spice hops. Woody flavors and strong tacky and earthy hop flavor and a really great dry character. Woody, oak and strong hops with this dry wood influcenced finish provide a really tight beer.

12.10.05 Jeroboam, RLB YEHA-05. Dark amber pour, cloudy, lasting khaki head. Aroma reminds of a lighter barley wine, touches of c-hops with some oxidation and strong malt presence (bread, sweet syrup, caramel). Alcohol takes a strong presence (despite the relatively low abv) and really brings the barley wine thing full circle, but the malts don’t really hold their own beneath all this wood and earthy hop stuff. Wet leaves. Finish is a return to sweetness, malts, and lingering stickiness. Good.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Woody, leafy aroma is very hop forward with a strong supporting malt base. Hazy burnished copper coloured body with a decent, large bubbled, tan head that recedes to cover with nice lacing. Oak and vanilla tones to the strong, leafy hop flavour with light caramel malt undertones and assertive bitterness. Medium body is very dry with lively carbonation. Sampled at the Kennett Square Brewfest 2005.

Jeroboam at RLB’s YEHA ’05. Hazy dark amber color with a nice creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, old hops and a hint of wood. The hops and the oak come on more in the flavor, with the sweet malt coming up from behind. I found myself going back to this for more samples as the night went on. Very good.

from a magnum courtesy of JimMack at Richlikebeer’s YEHA ’05. glossy cloudy amber color, creamy tan head. aroma is hoppy and a little whiskey barrel. flavor is strong hop, a little alcohol heat. I actually like the other bastards better.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2005
NJ, Pocono, Philly YEHA ’05 out of that ridiculously huge bottle. Nice caramel and woody aroma. Pour was dark amber foamy head. Matching the original AB it definitely is smoother and richer with the oaken characteristics. Very tasty.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2005
NJ, Pocono, Philly YEHa!’05. Clear, deep amber body with a foamy, off-white head. Aroma of mild oak, subdued and mellow woodsy hops and some interesting and unexpected whiskey qualities. Flavor is more refined and elegant and the palate seems smoother than the regular Arrogant Bastard and the harsh edges and cloying qualities seem to be smoothed out. A nice variation on an established theme.
