2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Look: pours a cloudy light brown. Just a little darker than amber. Off light tan head that disappears quickly.
Smell: oak. Hops. Alcohol. Tobacco.
Taste: oak, alcohol. Tobacco, like an unlit cigar. Black pepper.
Feel: thick mouth feel. Leaves a film on the mouth. Fairly heavy carbonation.
Overall: don't like this near as much as am regular arrogant. Not sure if it is the oak or what but not quite as good.
First drank: home 7/15/14

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is burned toast, dark berries and oak. Interesting despite muddled hop-notes. Taste is driven forward by cherry notes and then consumed by toasted malt and woody pangs. Bitterness is grainy and unrefined. Becomes a little torturous towards the bottom of the glass. It’s a very savoury-oriented beer and is inaccessible to anyone other than the most ardent drinker.
