4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to pint glass. Pours dark amber with a small tab head. Aroma of oak (surprising), hops and toasted malt. Flavor goes from front to back very smoothly - semi-sweet malty to earth hops. Incredibly balanced. Mouthfeel is on the thin side.

Very good! Awesome aroma and taste. My only criticism is it was kind of boozy, alcohol wasn't hidden very well, but other than that a tasty beer, as expected from Stone.

Bought 25Jan2008, tasted 02Feb2008. The aroma has a malty,smokey/roasted, sweetness. The brew has a hazy/cloudy deep red/brown. The flavor starts with a roasted/smokey, and sweet maltiness. The hops don’t showcase themselves until the very end with a earthy, leathery taste. the palate has a a nice full sweetness from the malts that finishes with a long, bitterness at the end.

Pretty much amazing. really love this, served in a snifter, on draft, i enjoy arrogant bastard, but this takes it to another level. If you have a chance to get this beer, grab one. Worth the money.

This bottle was cellared for about a year. Appearance is a dark amber with decent carbonation and great lacing. Smells of malt and oak-wonderful. Taste is completely different from Arrogant Bastard. I pick up some of the same hop profiles and malts as AB, but the oak definitely mellows and enriches. I walso pick up a hint of coconut as well. Great mouthfeel and highly drinkable.

Being a Beer Basterd know it all I have always loved the Arrogant Bastard Ales. There are people that don’t understand what this beer represents other than what it tastes like. This beer represents the ability to control your palate and really focus on what your tasting. It took me ten minutes to drink about 4 ounces of this beer just because the flavors a re so complex. Its thick creamy hoppy citrussy heavylivelywith a smoooooooth lightly oaked finish. I like

Pours dark amber almost brick red in the light. Head is white to off white. nice woody flavors with light fruit and some spice. rolls over the tongue fully. I really like this beer though it is a little much for regular drinking.
