Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at Mellow Mushroom (Brandon). Served in a pint glass.

A: Very dark copper to brown, not quite clear, with a half-finger of off-white creamy head and low visible carbonation.

S: Malty, toasty sweetness, somewhat boozy, and touches of nuts and toffee.

T: Big toasty malt, significant booze, and light hop bitterness. Some booze and malt sweetness in the hang.

M: Medium body, but lighter than I expected. Alcohol quite noticeable, and more so that I expected given the relatively modest ABV. Medium carbonation sensation.

O: I am real disappointed in this one. I thought that I'd had this one before and enjoyed it; I remember enjoying the Oaked Arrogant Bastard. But this particular example - not doing it for me. Malty and boozy, and not in a good way. EDIT: Reading some other reviews, I'm wondering if this was old or just a bad batch. I got almost no hop flavors/bitterness, let alone aroma. Guess I'll really have to try it again and see if it's better the next time around. Will update review if it changes significantly.
