Pours murky red/brown with a very thin, offwhite head, specks of lace. Smells great. Sweet and vanilla with some booze and a hint of wood on the nose. Tastes ok. Wood and sweet oxidation with some spicy hops. Wood flavor is funky. Kind of a mess. Medium body, subdued carbonation.

Bottle. Amber color with creamy tan head. Aroma is bourbon, caramel spruce, resinous, spicy. Taste is caramel, spicy, more resinous flavours, bitter finish, surprisingly dry. Medium carbonation. Much more intense than the regular Arrogant Bastard can next to it. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from Discount Supermarket, Cardiff. Pours deep amber, large off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with some dark dried fruits, very light bourbon, hints of spice. Taste presents a characteristically jagged hop profile, the bourbon really taking a back-seat more than expected. It’s there but merely provides a little shading to the hoppy protagonist itself.
