It pours out in this deep rich crimson red, almost like cranberry juice. The head is light tan pillowy head.

The aroma has lots of caramel malt along with juicy sweet orange and grapefruit. Then the hops shine through of pine, resin, and some oak.

On the flavor, it starts off with a bitter blood orange, red grapefruit, and peel. It then hits with a round vanilla flavor. The oak adds a dimension throughout.

The caramel sweetness then hits and balances the beer. There is a big lasting bitterness in the end. It's almost peppery, but lots of resin, pine, earth, tea, earthiness, and wood chips.

The oak adds a wonderful complexity to the Arrogant Bastard base. A great beer that is very much like an American barleywine, but very well made, unlike some other attempts.
