4.43/5  rDev +5.5%

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle (bbd 3/22/13 ?) into a pint glass, pours a light red orange brown with a light tan head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: oak, toffee, citrus hops, pine, caramel

T: bitter hops up front mixed with an earthyness from the oak tannins, middle sweetens slightly with oak still present, finish is pine resin and bitter, taste lingers, slight hints of spice maybe nutmeg

M: thinner than I expected, aftertaste is long, very slight alcohol presence

O: a nice adaptation on Arrogant Bastard, oak mixes well with hops, very drinkable

Bottle purchased from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Pours a very dark brown, with a foamy one inch head, and a good amount of lacing down the glass.

Smells like strong woody oak, searing piney hops, and lots of sweet malt.

The taste is similar. They really capture the earthy smoky oak flavor in this one very nicely, it's like sucking on an oak tree covered in lupulin. It's quite hoppy, as imagined, with lots of grapefruit and pine, but the oak aging smooths the flavors out considerably and makes them more palatable. There's some sweet malt and vanilla flavors in the background.

Medium bodied, crisp, dry mouthfeel, a slow sipper.

Probably the best "Bastard" due to the increased restraint that the oak-aging brings.
