22oz bottle. 2012 Edition. Pour a deep coppery amber with a frothy off-white head. Retains with some fizzy ringing around the edges of the glass. The aroma smells of floral and citric hops, dark roast and a combination of malt and alcohol sweetness. It’s full in the nose, with the hops and malt making an equal push. The taste is similar but even more aggressive, with roast and hop bitterness really hitting the tongue hard. Toffee sweetness comes in strong off the sides, helping to balance things. The finish on this is tough though, with a burnt and bitter feel that lingers. The mouthfeel is full bodied with a good bit of alcohol sweetness mixed in. It’s not overly stinging but will definitely warm your face up a bit. Arrogant Bastard to the extreme indeed, this packs a wallop in the flavor and alcohol departments yet still remains surprisingly accessible. A winner every year.
