4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice deep amber brown with an of white head that could have a little more presence. Still, a lovely beer... Aroma of: caramel, and cereal. Taste is not balanced but still very enjoyable. Actually it’s pretty bomb. Sweet and sour give way to salty and bitter. Lingering bitter palate is quite enjoyable. Stone Brewing for the win.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Copper Coin. Pours bright dark reddish amber with thin lacy off-white head. Aroma is dry oaky caramel malt, slight bourbon on the finish. Taste is big roasty caramel malt, lots of oaky notes and some lightly sweet bourbon on the back. Very dry on the finish. Lots of malt here. Truly a mix of the constituent beers. Definitely drier and oakier than regular Arrogant Bastard.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear deep brown with a medium beige head, moderate retention, very fine lacing. Big toasty aroma, with notes of oak, molasses, fig, grass, and pepper. Medium full body, crisp, dry, (alcohol) hot. Medium sweet, with a lingering medium-strong bitter finish. Very intensely malty, flavorful, and complex, almost over-the-top.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma comes off a little oxidized surprisingly papery, some caramilized dates soaked in booze, a subdued grapefruit hop notes. Flavors are rather sweet, intense maltiness that are astringent and slight copper at times while citrus and grapefruity notes pop threw with some oak as well. A full mouth feel that has a syrupy linger on the palate. Long simple brown sugar maltiness sits cloyingly.
