Expected more from this beer being oaked age. Poured light body, smells of malts and oak. Taste is thin with hints of vanilla with a burn from the alcohol at the end.

A - Pours to a very dark and murky ruby mahogany, generates a finger of soapy light brown head that dissipates down to a film.
S - Light vanilla bourbon, woody oak, hops, light malts and grapefruit.
T - Lightly sweet vanilla bourbon and malts upfront, ends with extremely bitter oak, hops and grapefruit. This beer is a real punch in the taste buds regardless of how desensitized you've become to bitter tastes.
O - A damned good, extremely bitter beer, more of an experience than a drink.
V - Medium.

One of my all time favorite "strong" ales. The oaked version of Arrogant Bastard has just a hint of oak under tone that I really enjoy.
