22 oz. bottled poured into a pub glass.

A – Tea brown, almost rust with head that doesn't stop. Left gorgeous laces during consumption. Opaque, with sediment.

S – Slight hops and malty. Hints of Chocolate, maybe some toffee

T – Complex flavor, though maybe a little over powered by the malt and alcohol. Drinks very slowly. Reminds me of a malty quadrupel, but with some serious punch. Bourbon ale almost.

M – Thick and malty. At least, as far as I can tell, being a newb and all. Very strong beer, complex flavors, not for the faint of heart.

O - I've seen reviews describe this beer as being like a scotch ale, but I feel it is heavier than that. It truly reminds me of a cross between a quadrupel and a bourbon ale. It drinks very slowly, this is the kind of beer you'd be best sipping, to take in all it has to offer without getting your teeth knocked out. Isn't overly powerful with alcohol, but you know its there. It's 11.2%, so it is definitely there. The bottle says, "It is unequivocally certain that your feeble palate is grossly inadequate and thus undeserving of its liquid glory, and it may be right, for now. I am a fan of Arrogant Bastard, though the Double Bastard may be a little much for me this time around. Maybe I should warm up a little next time before getting my posterior handed to me.... But there will be a next time.
