Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-09 getrunken. Überraschend zahm hat das Bourbon Barrel diesen Bastard gemacht und es kommt ein spannendes Pfirsich IceTee Aroma auf. Ansonsten finde ich das Ale fast untrinkbar wegen seinen extremen Hopfenbitterkeit. tapefuzz (1021) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2018
12oz bottle. Pours mahogany brown with a barely-there beige head. Aroma is toffee, slightly watery bourbon, some raisin, vanilla, and vague wood. Taste is toffee, lots of hops (earth and pine), hazelnut, very light sweet bourbon, some oak, raisin, caramel, and a touch of vanilla. Bitter. Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Mouthfeel is oily and a little thin - but smooth. Barely any bourbon presence in this one - negligible in the taste and only slightly more prominent in the aroma.

It has a definitive bourbon BA note to it, but the barrel doesn't completely take the Beer over.
Not better or worse than the normal Arrogant Bastard, just different.
A really good Beer. BrooksChicago (1) - - FEB 10, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Found this at a local shop in Roselle, IL. I don’t typically go in for an American Strong Ale but it came highly recommended and I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this was. Bullit (4879) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 9, 2018

Pours ruby-reddish-brown, thin off white head. Nose is vanilla, coconut, malt, wood. Medium sweet, light tart, high bitter, alcohol gives it a punch. Aromas - charred wood, caramel, vanilla, coconut, yeast, alcohol, light floral hops. Wish it was a little less bitter, otherwise very good.
