Mahogany, cherry colored ale with lively bubbles. Brilliant head with exceptional retention and unyielding, frothy lacing.
Fresh, pine needle hop aroma and oak wood. Spicy and inviting with alcohol intricacies. Cherry sweetness.
Flavor is super complex just like unoaked arrogant bastard. Spicy piney and herbal hop bitterness. Solid biscuit malt backbone with cherry and grape sweetness. Smoked woods come through in middle to end. Alcohol hits in the finish with a bourbon character and signature warmth.
Medium bodied with a dry finish from the hops. Well carbonated.
Just an awesome brew. Every bit as good as the unoaked version with an added kick. I like the concept of taking a great beer and seeing what some oak chips and a little aging does to it. Genius!
