Bottle, Malty, hoppy nice, but just a touch of oak, What more reallly needs to be said, I have to believe that stone is one of the best breweries in the USA. This brew is aggressive, with its malts, head , and hop, also its quite delicious. This beer is very well done, makes for a great sipper. The oak just adds great dryness to the palate. Thanks MrRomero.

Bottle from Wilburs poured into Watou Trappist glass - Pours cranberry red with a creamy 1 finger tan head; Very sweet caramel, powdered sugar, bready yeast, apples, and a hint of the alcohol to the nose; Overpowering oak on the initial taste; A very bitter aftertaste with wood, floral hops, and burnt toast; A smooth full body; Good carbonation; Not a beer to be sipped! The wood flavor is way too overpowering. Some citrus tries to show through in the taste, but it just isnt powerful enough. Id like to try the original.

The aroma was citrusy hops of grapefruit and orange with a strong malty presence which lasted for days. A light tannin of oak was notable, but was not strong or pronounced. The sweet dark caramel malt was notable and strong enough to keep the hop charge in check. The beer poured into the glass deep amber with an off-white and moussy head which was small bubbled and lasted for days. The flavor was malty with a strong citrusy hop flavor and substantial bittering. The oak shined in the flavor and was strong with a light presence of vanilla. The dark caramel malt was again present, but could not keep the oak and bittering in check so the balance goes to bitter. The finish was dry with lasting citrusy (grapefruit) hop flavor and oak character lasting long and strong into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was almost full and even a smidge viscous and with the decent level of carbonation the beer was creamy in the mouthfeel. A nice Oaked beer, perhaps a bit harsh in the final aftertaste with oak, but still a pleasurable pint. 12 ounce bottle.

Pours a cloudy reddish orange with a very light white head. Smells of hops with a little of that oaky smell to it as expected. The taste is still pretty hoppy, but definitely a woodsy, oaky taste to it. You get the oak chips pretty much up front. Fairly easy drinking, pretty smooth. Somewhat bitter finish. The grapefruit really comes out towards the end.

12oz bottle. Aroma: Lots of grapefruit and pine, caramel, and some grainy maltiness. The oak is right upfront with a strong woodiness and some light coconut. Appearance: Reddish amber in color and slightly hazed. Off-white head was full and foamy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Toasted maltiness, caramel, light cinnamon, oak, vanilla and coconut, Strong grapefruit, pine, and resin, with some grass into the finish. Bitterness was strong, but not too strong. Palate: Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Light alcohol warming in back of mouth. Overall: Liked this much more than regular Arrogant Bastard. The oak adds another dimension that really rounds it out.
