4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a growler pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium tan head that leaves light lacing. Smells of oak, molasses, Brown sugar, pine, and citrus. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a decent hop bite. Mouthfeel is medium to light and very chewy with a pretty good carbonation and a dry finish. This beer is amazing. Stone does a great job blending 3 beers together and its really well balanced. You can notice the dry hopping too. Wish they would brow this more than just once a year.

Split a bomber bottle at Jed’s party, thanks for sharing. It poured a deep reddish amber with persistent beige foam and lace. Predictable over-the-top Arrogant Bastard traits: big malt and big hops. This one’s even bigger overall with added hardwood-aged complexity. Good stuff.

Pours a lovely reddish brown with a good sticking head. Aroma is pine, hops, floral, caramel, toffee, tropical fruit, citrus, malt, light vanilla sweet, oak. Taste is smooth, caramel, biscuit, toffee, floral hops, malt, bitter. Great one again, a bit smoother than any of them alone.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ruby to brown colored, very nice but small beige head. Aroma is of caramel and toffee and citrus to pine hops with some resin qualities. Taste moderate sweet caramel malts, biscuit, bit of toffee, sticky brown candied sugar, a bit woody, lots of pine, less so with citrus, some floral, some resin. Medium to heavy on the bitterness and dry finish. Weaker side of full bodied, oily. Excellent stuff!

Loved reading the label. However i felt a bit let down by the drinking experience. Was expecting something...different. Really didn’t set itself apart from the other Bastards. May have been my least favorite from the box set, definitely the most disappointing.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep maltieness and hint of tart with wood come from this clearish reddish brew with an offwhite head. The taste is sweetish with oak and bitterness in the aftertaste. This lightish medium bodied brew has good carb. And is well balanced and worth the try. Has a ver slight warming feelin from the alcohol.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A deep copper color with a beige head. The aroma contains some caramel, citrus, toasted bread, and chocolate. The flavor is bitter with a bit malty profile existing on it. It contains some bitter notes with chocolate, toffee, citrus, and alcohol. How is this beer ANY different than Arrogant Bastard. Its like holy crap Im whisked away to 2001 and me getting into craft beer. Not a bad thing. Overall this is basically a tweek on a classic. Good.
