Gorgeous-looking beer. Dark red-mahogany color with a fluffy bone head of dense sticky foam. Lacing is amazing and thick. Retention is ridiculous.

Toffee malts, American oak, some booze, grapefruit and sappy hops, mild raisin. Nice.

The oak is huge. Super woody and dry and piney, which develops the hop profile even more. The flavors are just... massive. A step-up from regular Arrogant Bastard. Elements of the floral and the citrus compete with the big oak and toffee breadiness. Very enjoyable.

Dextrinous and chewy. Medium-big in body. Lots of trapped bubbles exploding upon drinking. Busy.

Very good strong ale. Better than Double Bastard, in my opinion. Easy toslug sip and enjoy.
