This pours a very nice and rich amber color (almost like an Irish Red Ale) and has a nice amount of head.

The aroma isn't dominated by the oak wood chips, which is nice and there is a distinct caramel malt flavor with a little bit of smokiness.

From the first sip there is a lot of the caramel malt from the aroma, which is nice and sweet, but it's balanced by the hoppy bitterness that comes in at the middle and finishes with a nice smoky, oak.

For being a Strong Ale, this is very balanced and easy to drink. I would definitely pick this up again.

A - Pours a clear deep red with almost two fingers of tan head. Head has decent retention and leaves some nice lacing.

S - Aromas of oak and oily hops, some grapefruit zest and some caramel malt.

T - Taste follows the aroma pretty closely. Actually quite malty up front. However, the oak character is very prominent, especially on the finish, and the hops come in midway and last through the finish. There is also more juicy citrus than I got from the smell.

M - Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. A bit syrupy initially, finishing very dry with a big tannin presence.

O - I think I enjoy the regular Arrogant a bit more, but this is a pretty tasty brew.
