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.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

  1. 5 Star Review Excellent

    This is not a beer to be trifled with. Like the traditional bastard, it is an intricate melange of caramel and toffee malts balanced against the powerful grapefruit and citrus flavours of American Chinook hops. However, this beer brings something more to the table – vanilla, bourbon and mild woody tannins from the oak chips it is aged on. The oak is present in the aroma, but balanced against the strong hop profile. It adds deep complexity to the flavour of what is already an assertive and unique beer. Even with all these elements competing for your attention, this beer remains smooth and easy to drink. It embodies the spirit and flavour of an uncompromising American Strong Ale, right at the forefront of modern craft brewing.
