This beer poured a red amber color with a two finger high, off-white head. The head dissipated fairly rapidly, and not much lacing was left on the glass. The initial smell of the beer was that of pine, spices, citrus and some dark fruity notes. The initial taste of the beer is pine, spice and dark fruits. This progressed to some burnt malts, possibly caramel. Additionally, there is a taste of the alcohol, which is more apparent after the first several sips. The beer has a full body with light carbonation.
Overall, this is a great beer. However, I'm not sure if I enjoy it more than regular Arrogant Bastard. There is more booze flavoring on the tongue than I would prefer, but I can't complain about the other flavors I'm tasting. I'd probably buy this again if given the opportunity.
