12 oz bottle poured into my perfect pint glass. This is the first commercial beer I have had in a while because I have been enjoying my homebrew.
Appearance: A gorgeous deep amber with a very well retained two finger tan head. The only negative are the yeast floaties that I can see swimming around in the carbonation.
Smell: Oak barrel "funkiness" and pin hops.Caramel sweetness bring it all around.
Taste: The taste really follows the smell. Bitter with the oak barrel note up front. A solid maltiness with a touch of sweetness as it finishes. The strong 7.2 ABV is hidden very well.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is solid with the taste going all over the mouth. This beer has a slick sort of feel. The carbonation is good and the body is sizable for the style.
Overall: I do like the oak treatment the they added to Arrogant Bastard. It adds a layer of complexity to an already very solid beer. The only downside is the added expense. A solid treat now and then.
Serving type: bottle
