An active pour yields voluminous three fingers worth of late to develop off white colored frothy goodness comprised of varying sized bubbles... Super star retention... The head becomes lighter and takes on a more whipped appearance as it settles a bit... A light to moderate bit of carbonation, some of which clings to the glass and the rest of which moves at a moderate pace... The color is a light brown and cherry red... A wee bit of lacing clings to the sides of the glass... The nose is more subdued than expected... A light piney hop presence... A malty bread base lies beneath the surface... Smells like a standard American strong ale, but without any of the individual complexities of the brews blended herein... However, it should be noted that the nose continues to evolve and intensify as this one warms closer to room temperature... The end result is a very robust and potent bouquet... The flavor profile has some light piney hop intensity, some medicinal cough drop character, toffee and a strong malty bready base... Medium bodied and sturdy... Dry throughout with a slight increase in intensity on the finish... Limited carbonation... Not a bad beer by any means, but not remarkable different from any of the three constituents which make it up... I would opt for any this brew's parents over this when provided the option...

Favorite of the arrogant bastard cousins I've tried.

Bottle: Poured a dark copper color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of oak with some residual sugar notes and strong hoppy notes of citrus and earthy notes. Taste is also dominated by oak notes with plenty of residual sugars and strong hoppy notes with light oak in the finish. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Good stuff overall and very enjoyable beer.
