Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
[vintage 2006]
Pours clear, dark amber with a great, large, creamy, beige head. Impressive hoppy aroma for a vintage, pine, grapefruit, caramel, blackberries, some oak. Low carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet at first, some berries, nuts, orange and caramel. Very bitter with lots of hops before a very dry finish sets in with lots of oak and dryness. Extremely dry finish, but very nice and enjoyable.

Christian (11058) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2009
Dark copper with a lasting tan head. Malty aroma with lots of oak. Sweet and malty flavour with a good hop flavour and bitterness. Oak tannin drying out the finish

bhensonb (10979) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Aroma of flowery hop underlaid with pine hop. Or vice versa. I detect no yeast - probably because my nasal palate is hopped! Deep mahogany red color with a white head which collapses. Starts with an impression of sweetness, very smooth, and the hops are not at all overpowering. Very good mouthfeel, and very appropriate level of carbonation. The oak is almost spicy. The finish endures with oaky malt. Itís really quite interesting. Almost like a mild version of Anchorís Our Christmas Ale.

vanilla is continuing to fade but still offers some sweetness, well balanced between the earthy oak and the caramel and vanilla,

Tap at Pony Bar. I didnít like this as much as the regular Arrogant Bastard, but it was still quite good. Pours dark amber with a strong, orange head. Malty aroma with notes of alcohol, wood, and maple. Flavor is sweet and relaxed, with strong maple notes and alcohol presence. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes with mild bitterness. Good.
