Fresh bomber of the '12 batch to a snifter
Pours a deep ruby brown with a finger of white head. Receded quickly leaving a nice ring, great lacing. Great art bottle work along with the signature narrative putting macro brew beer drinkers in their place.
Smells of hops, caramel, toffee, tobacco, chocolate, and alcohol. Very rich, treat for the nose.
Taste of strong, bitter, and spiced hop. Caramel malts come through well, hints of toffee and butterscotch accompanying hints of alcohol. Not easy to explain, but a very nice blend of bitter front and sweet finish- magnificently executed.
Feel is also strong, very thick and creamy. Dances across the tongue, goes down incredibly smooth.
Overall an amazingly crafted beer, basically an amped up version of arrogant bastard. Everything is well represented, one of my favorite beers to look forward to each fall
