I awake from a slumber that’s been anything but peaceful. I don’t take kindly to idling and I am anything but neutral. Life has nothing to do with killing time, and the knowledge that months have passed since the onset of my sequestering in this pitch-black oaken tomb (albeit a barrel flush with brilliant aromas of vanilla and char) does not sit well. But then comes a tingle followed by rejuvenating warmth, signs that something is different…something has changed…and for the better. I feel stronger yet somehow more nimble and refined. I feel even more self-assured, and my vision for what is good and right, honest and true, is as laser-sharp as the brawny, bawdy, liquid Arrogance that shall further advance my battle against all things mediocre and geared toward the lowest common denominator. I have been born anew and, in the process, anointed with vibrant, inspiring, previously unexperienced character, all while maintaining everything I am and have always been—bold, bullish, unadulterated, and yes, Arrogant. Are you Worthy of quaffing a beverage of this intensity, irreverence and quality craftsmanship? Not likely, but for those who “get it,” I know my time in this bourbon barrel has not been wasted. Cheers to you, enlightened imbiber. On second thought, cheers to me!

    Reddish/brown pour. Good head retention and lacing. Caramel malt and metallic aroma. Strong flavour of bourbon but without the warmth. Bit of sweet and sour going on, some fruit and very earthy. Smooth sticky mouthfeel. Long, long aftertaste.

    Aroma: 9 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    12 oz bottle, bottles 10/15/16. Pours clear deep ruby copper with a fluffy reddish off-white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

    The aroma is sweet caramel malt, piney hops and some bourbon vanilla.

    The flavor is kind of hot bourbon alcohol with a little sweet caramel malt, fruit and vanilla leading in to a big resiny piney hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, the hops and bourbon are a bit abrasive.
