Poured from the 22 oz. bomber that I bought as a part of “The Bastard Box” or something like that for $19.99 from Giant Eagle in Painesville, Ohio a few weeks ago. In the box are bombers of Arrogant Bastard, Double Bastard, Lukcy Basartd and Bourbon Barrel Aged Bastard. I have previously reviewed the classic AB and Double Bastard. Now I get to review this one and later the BA AB. No “Best By” date observed by me.

A Classic creamy light brown head over a dark copper but translucent body, much like the classic look of Arrogant Bastard. I enjoyed a bomber of that the other night for comparison purposes, of course. 4.0

S Strong malt and hop presence just like in the classic. There is also an “oaked” sense to the beer but expectedly it is not strong (this beer is a blend of oak, double bastard and Arrogant Bastard. This remains a classic beer taste. I have likened it to all levers pushed up to max (hops, barley malt, etc) and this is no exception. 4.0

T Classic Arrogant Bastard taste with a sense of that “Oaked” AB but it is more difficult for me to detect that “Double Bastard” in the taste. Likely because these are 3 different versions of AB and presumably 1/3 of it is indeed regular AB (hard to detect 1/3 of Double Bastard!). Anyway, the taste is challenging, interesting, complex, all of the things that the label claims that it will be. 4.5
M Full, big, stinging hops, full barley malt. Arrogant Bastard (and versions of it) may have one of the biggest mouthfeels that I have come across. Another one that comes to mind is SN Bigfoot. 4.0

D/O Drinkability is moderate since this is SUCH a big, foreboding beer (that comment may be made about all of the Bastard line). Overall this is a classic beer and I enjoy that the brewers created this blend in celebration of AB’s 13th Anniversary. 4.0
