Lost this in the cellar when it explicitly says not to.

A - Big thick, brown, looks full bodied. Not much head formation, but when did appear was mocha in color with little lacing.

S - The age probably muted the hops here, as all I get are a strong malt backbone. Nutty, caramel, sweet. What hops are there are trademark stone, the dark dank and hefty type.

T - Starts off malty and sweet. . Caramel malts are in charge. Mid-stream gets more balanced, bitterness appears. Then a hint of citrus and resin from a unadulterated hit of hops appears. In the finish the bitterness becomes very strong. The oily texture comes through.

M - Full bodied, moderate to light carbonation. Sticky and clingy at times, and then oily at others. Alcohol warmth sneaks in.

O/D - A nice "strong ale" that tries to bring in all the attributes. Certainly the bitterness came through, while other parts perhaps lost it with age. It really reminds me of Arrogant bastard, which sadly to say in this day and age is more balanced than it used to be. This beer carries that design a little further.
