Bottle from AJ's Fine Foods in on North Central in Phoenix. Enjoy by date of January 16, 2011. 12oz bottle into a chalice.

Poured a deep ruby red with some mahogany highlights. A yellowish off-white head leaves some lacing and moderate retention. Smell of some dark fruits and lots of malt notes, vaguely reminiscent of the regular Arrogant Bastard (AB). Lots of woody oak character, with a bit of butterscotch and vanilla. Some subdued hop notes in the periphery. Taste has more oak and vanilla qualities, and takes on a feel that comes across like a thinner and lighter AB Some brown sugar, substantial malt notes and hopping that again, vaguely reminds me of the regular AB. A bit of alcohol at the finish as well. Body is a bit disappointing, would've appreciated it to be as big as the standard AB is. Carbonation is a light medium. Not bad on the whole, but the big and bold flavours of AB appear to be lost or subdued - however, I suspect that this may have origins in bottle freshness.
