Hade för mig att den vanliga arrogant alen hade betydligt bättre fyllighet och balans. Kanske fick en dålig flaska?, vem vet? Denna var mer kraftig himmel blask ;(

Oak flavour doesn’t taste as prominent any more with every time tasting this. Just a shame the regular version hasn’t made it to Europe.

Bb: 05.18.11 A: Pours dark brown when held to the light reveals beautiful cherry tones with excellent clarity. Single finger toasted peanut head falls to a quilt of the same. Persistent lacing. S: Earthy hops, hints of vanilla from the oak, sweet backbone with sweet malts. I’m surprised by this, but so far, I’m not sensing much difference from the flagship version. T: Now I get it! Theres so much oak sweetened vanilla, cola tones on this. It’s a completely different beer. Nice surprise. Sweet, dry, fun. Not much hop presence. Earthy tones. M: Medium to syrupy body with low carbonation. dry and....dry on the finish. O: well done, prefer the flagship, but not bad either. Serving type: bottle 05-04-2011

Dark Red/Brown Ale that starts with a strong hoppy note. The implied oak flavour is fairly mild and does not present itself up front.

Dark mahogany pour. Solid one-finger head. Some alcohol legs on this one. Aroma is dominated by the woody oak element. Some mi or sweet malt tones come through, I’m not getting any hop characteristics. Full mouthfeel that finishes dry. Taste is just ok, nothing spectacular.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Deep redish color with a light tan head. Aroma is pine and hoppy. Taste is somewhat bitter and hoppy with a hint of oak or wood. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2014
12 oz bottle, purchased at Hy-Vee Muscatine ($3) and poured into a pint glass at home. 7 weeks past its enjoy by date. Brown and clear with a lasting tan head, thick lacing. Aroma of oak, earthy hops, bitter chocolate, caramel and toasted malts. Similar flavor, strongly bitter and woody with light alcohol and a lingering, dry finish. Medium body, soft and smooth. Not too fresh.

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.
