Reviewed January 5th, 2012. Poured a 12 oz bottle into a JFF is my BFF novelty pint glass.
A: Poured a nice one fingered creamy head. Rusty Maroon that laces nicely.
S: A slight alcohol comes through. The head that is present almost gives this a soapy smell. I really can't smell oak coming off of this, but instead its more pine. A tree is a tree though.
T: This is presented similar to a traditional Arrogant Bastard with a malty sweetness with a bitterness (citrus) coming throughout. The oaken taste comes right before the pine hits, but then the pine flavor takes over.
Instead of pine coming though more as this warms up instead the citrus is sadly more present.
M: Because of its head a creaminess comes though. Feels full body and the carbonation is decently there.
O: Sadly the taste of this drink doesn't stay the same throughout. It starts off tasting similar to a barleywine, but then it changes to a DIPA back and forth. Even though I loved this drink the first time I had it I can't say that I would pick it up again especially since its price tag.
