3L 2005 bottle shared with T and D. Originally served a little to cold but when you have three liters to get through there is plenty of time for the beer to warm up and it did just that. This one has definitely mellowed over time and most of the delicious hops that Im used to in my AB had faded into a distant memory. Poured a thick murky brown with an okay head. I could detect some oak notes and malty molasses and even a little vanilla in this one. The flavor was smooth with slight oakiness and malt. Pretty good but I need to try this one again fresh.

rather disappointing compared too the regular arrogant. some minor oak notes which smoothed out some sweetness, but the beer seemed over carbonated and real gassy.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a cloudy thick caramel colour, with a small fizzy tan head. Nose of oak, chocolate and citrusy hops. My mouth is lit up with bitter hops and sweet malts. Finishing dry with bitter hops leaving a tartness on your lips.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Oak and floral aroma. Initial sweet caramel malty taste followed quickly by the taste of oak and bitter hops, some alcohol taste shows through. Dry, bitter, some what fruity finish with a very pleasant lingering hoppy perfume taste.

Cheers to Boboski, happy b-day! (3 liter bottle) Smokey, spicey aroma, oaky and tanins, with some chocolate. Dark amber with a huge white head. Citrus hops, smokey flavor, oaky with tanins, spicey and piney hops. Awesome beer, thanks bobo for sharing!

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2007
Very cloudy amber with moderate head formation. Aroma is strong yet nondescript citrus, caramel and moderate simplistic oakiness. A weird combination. A somewhat unctuous oakiness dominates on the sweetish beginning of the sip, followed by some perfumey hops and the expected strong bitterness. I like bits and pieces here, but its an odd combination. Im a bastard fan as well, but I dont see the point of this beer. It doesnt work. At all. Hops in large quantity and oak simply do not mix.

piscator34 (2386) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Murky amber in colour with strong aromas of dark caramel, pine, white grapefruit, vanilla, almond, and a hint of raisin. Very woody in the mouth (both fresh cut wood and bark), red grape skins, a bit of port (probably the combination of the caramel and grape elements), with a cookie like malt character coming through near the finish. Theres a citrus fruit + woody astringency that balances out the malt in a very interesting way.

Beerdedone (3332) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2007
Pours a reddish amber with a nice off white head. Aroma of fruit, citrusy hops, oak and some mild spices. Flavor of rich malts, bitter hops and sweet caramel malts. Very well balanced. Finishes crisp and dry. excellent american strong.

xmarcnolanx (930) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2007
There is a nice, dark malty aroma with significant grapefruit notes. The taste is of AB with a slightly harsh oak taste. I think that aged in a barrel without chips it would be a little more subdued and better.

smhncabot (310) - Cabot, Arkansas, USA - APR 16, 2007
pours like the typical ab. aroma is mostly grapefruit with hints of raisin and oak. taste is grapefruit and sweet raisiny malt with lots of toasty oak throughout. finish is a little tanniny with typical grapefruit bitterness. pretty tasty treat but i enjoy regular bastard more.
