Tap at Pony Bar. I didn’t 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.

Trade by Beerbill. Thanks a lot. Unclear brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, wood and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 221211

(Sample of TChrome’s 3L bottle) Pours a deep amber color with a large biege head. Not nearly as aggressive as the original. Nice mellow hops flavor with some sweetness. Shouldn’t offend those who are not as big of hop lovers.

brokensail (12015) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: Dark red in color with a thin layer of white foam and amazing lacing. S: Tons of caramel, oak/vanilla, slight citrus. T: Very distinct oak flavor, malty sweetness, smoke, and of course the signature Arrogant Bastard bitterness on the finish. M: Great body, very little carbonation. D: Much more drinkable than "regular" Bastard and much more complex and interesting (in my opinion).

bhensonb (11801) - 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. It’s really quite interesting. Almost like a mild version of Anchor’s Our Christmas Ale.

Bottle. Red amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is hop, fruit, grapefruit, malt. Flavour is hop, grapefruit, malt, hop. Nice beer.

Im nachgeschmack dagegen sehr hopfig, dabei leicht rauchig, gut gelungen. Test vom 7.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,14,10,12,11,12 - 11,95
