22oz bottle poured into a shaped pint glass.
Overall, Arrogant Bastard Ale is near-perfect. It nails every beer characteristic; does everything extremely well.
It is dark bronze, almost black, with a magnificent head and terrific lace. Somehow the smell and taste manage to be gritty, bitter, and smooth; extreme and drinkable; citrusy and woody. Experiencing Arrogant Bastard Ale kept me grounded--kept me in the moment, only more so. A wonderful beer.
While very good at everything, it is not distinguished at any one thing. There is no characteristic that grabs you by the collar and shakes you. Arrogant Bastard Ale is a jack of all trades, and a solid "A," but the master of none.
