Poured from a fresh bottle (5 weeks old) into a .5l glass named Spaten.
A: Long lasting off white head sits on top of a clear coppery, amber brew without much visible carbonation and leaves moderate lacing.
S: Very bready, malt forward, a bit of oak, hops, grass. Very pleasant. Not leaping out.
T: Very good. Like the smell, bread and oak with a hop finish majoring in grass, hay, herbs more than fruit, more pine than citrus. I loved it with intense sea scallop and sausage over garden veggie sauce with fresh tomatoes, provolone and truffle oil, also with the after dinner cheese course.
I am huge fan of Great Divide & Stone. In this category, Stone Arrogant Bastard wins! But this was a nice beer that I will look forward to coming back to and tasting head to head with Stone. I let it warm, and I sipped it slowly and it got more oaky, stinky, arrogant, shall we say? as it warmed. But it was just ok.
M: creamy, yet dry, but still a bit busy finish.
O - This is a nice example of oak aged IPA. It was mild and well done, but not GD's best.
