Deep ruby color with nice tan head that disappears quickly. Smells like hops. A lot of hops. Tastes like hops with a bit of barrel aging and some nice maltiness. Very nice beer.

Appearance - Beautiful, deep ruby to auburn color. Almost completely opaque. A kahki colored head leaves a nice 1/4 " ring with some spotted lacing.

Aroma - Subtle wood/oak, resiny pine hop, sweet malt.

Taste - In the eloquent words of Kool-Aid man, Oh yeah!! Very solid toasted bread like malt base. A spiceyness along with the hops. Both piney and citrusy. The hops and malt are very well balanced. Rock candy like sweetness. Slight caramel. Oak chips are noticeable, but not nearly to the extent of Oaked Bastard. Finish is very smooth and not bitter.

Feel - Perfect. Just right on the carbonaion, the body, the alcohol. Leaves a nice slick coating and a general feeling of happiness.

Overall - While I have always personally found Arrogant Bastard to be a little overhyped, not the case here. Very different and interesting beer. Almost like a sexy, sophisticated American Barleywine had a baby with a fined tuned, athletic world class DIPA and sent it to the American Strong Ale Academy for gifted beers. Each version seems to get even better. If this were in 12 oz bottles I may never buy Oaked again.
