Rhode Island

3.53/5  rDev -17.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Consumed 12/9/12

Note: After this beer, I will have reviewed 100/100 of the Beers of Fame. 2012 goal complete. It's good to have such productive goals.

Appearance: Somewhere between moderate amber and deep copper - pours with a foamy, off-white head - fades to a little cap, leaves some nice streaks and spotty lacing

Smell: Cooked, lightly burnt caramel - roasted grains, with a load of herbal elements and some grass - earthy hops - some sweetness, with sweet caramel, toffee, and a touch of molasses - some dark fruits - overall, a bit too earthy and overcooked for my taste

Taste: Cooked, roasted grains - caramelized grains, cooked caramel, and some roasty notes - cooked, dried out dark fruits - hoppy, in a very earthy, herbal, and leafy way - some citrus as well - moderate, earthy bitterness - some concentrated citrus rind as well

Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, adequate carbonation, lightly oily, with a lingering bitterness

Overall: An accurate name, but not necessarily ideal

Double (Arrogant) Bastard sounds like a good idea, right? Unfortunately, it's not ideal. This beer doubles the earthy, leafy, herbal dirtiness that I do not particularly care for in Arrogant Bastard. I had this about 4 years ago, and I wasn't a big fan. My current assessment is about the same. But maybe it improves with some aging.
