Poured from a bomber into a Columbus Brewing Company pint glass.

A - Reddish brown with a beige/tan 1.5cm head. The head dissipates relatively quickly, but average for an 8.5% ABV beer. A nice beer to look at that indicates complexity to come.

S - Booze/vanilla oak (american) heavy in the beginning and . I would say primarily a Centennial aroma that fights with the booze and oak to eventually gain a dominance, but only slightly. Brief moments of booze and oak still show through in the aroma.

T - You get a steady bitterness right away that is married nicely with the booze and oak, then they fall out of symmetry before returning to a nice balance. The complexity of the flavors and how they start of in harmony, then each have their own moment, and then end in harmony again.

M - This is a rich, full beer on the palate in every way, including the mouthfeel. The beer is full and silky, with a nice resiny oil and residual sugar coating the palate after the sip is gone.

O - A great beer with a lot of complexity to it. It takes the 3 Arrogant Bastard Series beers and really melds them into something greater than any of the originals.

This is one of my favorite beers and I have to admit, I was sad to see this was my last bottle of the second release. I aged one 9 months and didn't think it was worth it. It was better in the first few months.

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: An interesting mix of caramel malts, citrusy hops, pine resin hops and oak is present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the hops are more prominent and lend a moderate to strong amount of bitterness that lingers through the finish (especially the piney hops). Hints of alcohol and vanilla are also noticeable. Once the beer warms up, the vanilla flavors become stronger.
M: It feels a bit more than medium-bodied, crisp and very dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Some alcohol heat is perceptible.
O: This beer is like smelling salts in that tasting the hop bitterness will definitely wake you up, but there's an interesting enough mix of flavors to make it something you can sip and savor. It definitely tastes like a hybrid between an imperial IPA and a strong ale.
