look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Bottle aged 10/22/12. Pours a cloudy orange/red with a finger thick white head. Smell is much sweeter than the original Bastard. A lot of citrus and booze coming through with some malt. Taste follows the nose, but with more maltiness. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied. Very smooth and has that signature Arrogant Bastard sting to it. The bitterness really lingers here. Overall, this is an absolutely insane ale. If you thought the original Bastard was good, this is a whole new beast.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter.

A: Opaque amber with a tan half-finger head that turns to tiny bubbles. Nice lacing.

S: Malts, grainy.

T: Really comes on like a barleywine. Nice malt/hop bite. Bready malts, alcohol heat. Sweet. Chewy finish.

M: Medium to high with great carbonation.

O: Strong, bold, kickass. Terrific with a slice of swiss cheese.
