A great spin on a classic brew. Out of the 12oz bottle it poured perfectly with a nice dark red color and a perfect off white head. Traditional Arrogant Bastard smell but with more subdued hopiness and a more musty malt/woody scent. The taste was quite a bit different as well with a more mellow flavor and less hop bite. The oak flavors really come out as the beer warms and it gives the aftertaste a very unique flavor. The original Bastard is still king, but this is an excelent spin on a classic. Very recommended.
