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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
Getrunken beim RB Treffen in Düsseldorf am 6.1.07
Malzig aromatischer Geruch, leicht süßlich. Sehr schwerer Geschmack, tief röstmalzern, man spürt einen alkoholischen Touch. Im nachgeschmack dagegen sehr hopfig, dabei leicht rauchig, gut gelungen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from dkachur, thanks Dan! Brown color, off-white foamy head. Raisin and peach in the aroma, not much oak. Grapefruity hopbitter flavor with oak, raisin, mango and red berries. Considerable dry out effect. Firm oily, raisinny aftertaste with some oily hops. Not as assertive as the painted bottle promises, it is much too fruity for that.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Thick dark brown with no head. Heavy, sugary, sweet toffee like, chocolatey beer. Totally flat unfortunately and cloying. Some fruitiness in the close, but I couldn’t really get on with this.
