Very carmelly which I'm sometimes in the mood for, but not always. Paired amazingly with nutty gouda & parmiganio-reggiano cheese called Parrano

Little too much sweetness in my opinion. Need more hops to balance it out.

On tap at Hay Merchant and D&T Drive Inn, Houston.

A: Pours a copper/amber red color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of sticky lace is left behind.
S: At first, hops are aggressive up front. Citrus, piny, grapefruit. Then toasted, almost burnt malt with a caramel malty sweetness. Lingering bitterness.
T: Follows the nose. Hop forward, with pine and grapefruit. Burnt toast and caramel malt sweetness for a bit of balance. Dark fruits of cherries and plums. Grapefruit bitterness lingers on. Lots going on here, and kind of messy.
M/D: A medium to full body. Moderate carbonation, though kind of muddled. I wish it was a bit cleaner. One pint is about enough for a sitting, but I have come back this a few different times.

I do enjoy this for what it is. Seems like a bit more balanced Arrogant Bastard. Though still something I can only drink once in a while. The hops are fairly aggressive like everything they do, burnt malt, and plenty of alcohol. I can see how some people might really love this. Just not entirely my style.
