Pours nearly pitch black. Has nice cream like head that lasts.

Big bubble gum and artificial peach aromas (think sugar free peach jelly candy). Some pepper, citrus, and brown sugar in the nose.

Much like Arrogant Bastard there is a lot going on here. Hop flavors muscle up against dark fruity flavors. I am picking up lots of pine, plum, peach, grapefruit rind, bubble gum, tobacco, strawberry and some vanilla.

Smooth and silky mouthfeel with some oiliness. I like this beer, but I prefer Arrogant Bastards hop character. Still very nice and highly recommended.
