Panzuriel (1287) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Deep amber color with a good head. Nose is very similar to Arrogant Bastard Ale with sharp and tangy hop nose. Taste is a mild yet very tangy at the back of the mouth ale. Somewhat like Arrogant bastard lite. Mouthfeel is satin. Aftertaste is lingering malt tang.

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Bottle. Dark burgundy brown colored body. Weak nose of some cedar, oak and some tobacco/bourbon notes. Smells and tastes similar to a scotch ale, though on the back of the tongue thereís some habanero flavors, and itís very dry. Interesting, and I would say unique since itís difficult to find a beer that tastes exactly like this one. Not sure if Iím the only one who gets the habanero notes, or if itís even in there at all, but I really like it.

Gethinbeer (2119) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2006
Cheers to Joe McPhee for this beer! I love the name and the attitude of this beer. Does it live up to its arrogance? Here goes. Sweet, caramel with fruit aroma. Cloudy in appearance with a muddy frothy head. Medium carb. Fruity beer with a syrup, strong hops. Leaves a sweetness. Strong ale.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - DEC 31, 2006
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep amber color, with a thick foamy tan colored head. Aromas are of overpowering oak, standard malts, and some yeast in the background. I wonít go into the oaked beer debate, suffice it to say that it is not a historically accurate style whatsoever. Ok to try, but they need to cut back on the oak. At least toast it first. Jeez.

NachlamSie (2733) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a long lasting, level white head. A good level of pineapple and grapefruit is present in the nose with a vanilla sweetness and a bit of smoked wood. Iím not that crazy about the flavor. The level of oak infusion is very tasteful, not overwhelming, but I think it clashes oddly with the pineapple suggestions which are present. I do like the biscuity flavor and mildly spiced finish quite well. I could drink one of these, but I wouldnít seek it out again. IMHO, the regular Arrogant Bastard is tastier.

EithCubes (4730) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle. Woody hop aroma with citrus and a little funk. Pine more than grapefruit. Ruby body with a creamy, rich tanned head. Bit of dark malt and fruitiness in with medium-strong hoppy bitterness. Pineapple more than pine. Medium body is dry, has a light tingle from carbonation, and finishes much the same. A drop from regular AB: hops donít quite agree with me here, and the main draw of the original (its punishing, extreme bitterness) is lacking.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - OCT 11, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2009 Ok, I tried this when the limited ones were released and I remember it being much more heavy in body and actually taste like oak. The new bottles were quite lite and underwhelming. Maybe thats what a big batch does, not sure. I still thought is was tasty but slightly watery.

12oz bottle. I havent had the original so I cant compare. The aroma is subtle nothing too heavy and the pour is a darker amber with a off white head. The taste is definitely oak with a bitter overtone. Creamy and heavy and quite frankly more than I am looking for but it definitely stakes its claim as a STRONG ALE.. The flavors collide in my mouth at the same time... not bad but........

A Mes rate: Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest í08
Thanks Harry! Rich amber with a slim off white head. An excellent colour. Milky malt aroma with some hardcore hops as expected and some nice earthy character. Too much wood and vanilla in the flavour. Again milky and just WAY too sweet. Itís barley wine territory in all honesty and it really doesnít work for me. Nice bitterness on the finish saves the day. Mouthfeel is way too thick and cloying and close to intolerable.

a strange brew, like a dark IPA; a sour, woodsy, and dark ale with little going on despite that aggressive bite, chunky chew, and of course that arrogant kick... smells better than it tastes to me.
