This really tastes like Anchor's take on Arrogant Bastard.
Had on tap in a Moonlight Brewing pint glass.
A: Reddish-brown mahogany with an inch and a half of creamy tan head.
S: Wacky! Some aromatic hops, rye, molasses, musty malt.
T: It's fun to drink. The molassesy flavor comes out a bit after a few drinks. Hops are like grapefruit. Finishes with a bit of "electricity".
M: Yes, it felt like a slight electrical current running through my mouth on the finish with the mix of hops, alcohol, and heavy carbonation. Also, I think I had this beer at just the right cold temperature. Feels very smooth if you let it sit in the mouth for a fe seconds and foam up.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: 1 finger of anemic off-white foam settles to a nice, thin cap over the top of this deep, clearish, reddish-mahogony beer. Looks nice.
Smell: I can smell the hops, distinctly. Once you get used to that, you can detect a sweet, pleasant maltiness.
Taste: This beer is very well balanced. Slight carbonic bite and pleasant hoppy bitterness yields to nice malty sweetness, with a nice, sweet, toasty finish. Again, fantastically balanced.
Mouth-Feel: Carbonation is noticeable and seems to fight against the thickness of this beer. Pleasant overall, but adds little.
Overall: A very solid brew. It tases like a lighter, more balanced porter. I would buy it again, but my maximum would be two bottles. A tad syrupy, otherwise very decent.
Serving type: bottle
