Dark copper body, with a full, pillowy white head. One of the most beautiful looking beers I’ve ever laid eyes on. Aromas are pine cones, and wood. The flavours also feature the pine and oak, but caramel malts are shining through as well. There is also some earthy dankness in the mix. A dry bitter finish rounds out the pleasure of drinking this one.

Expected more from this beer being oaked age. Poured light body, smells of malts and oak. Taste is thin with hints of vanilla with a burn from the alcohol at the end.

A - Pours to a very dark and murky ruby mahogany, generates a finger of soapy light brown head that dissipates down to a film.
S - Light vanilla bourbon, woody oak, hops, light malts and grapefruit.
T - Lightly sweet vanilla bourbon and malts upfront, ends with extremely bitter oak, hops and grapefruit. This beer is a real punch in the taste buds regardless of how desensitized you've become to bitter tastes.
O - A damned good, extremely bitter beer, more of an experience than a drink.
V - Medium.

One of my all time favorite "strong" ales. The oaked version of Arrogant Bastard has just a hint of oak under tone that I really enjoy.
