MiP (13912) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
Bottle, 7.2%. Nice, bonbony sweet hop aroma. Almost clear red/brown colour. Very bitter flavour with good aroma hops. Ends on a weak, but nice, vanilla, cigarbox aftertaste.

Hazy red in color, standard head. Nice hoppy smell, very fruity. Nice and fruity flavor, and the oak aging is not overpowering, just enough to give a hint of bourbon.

300. Onward and upward. The Oaked Arrogant Bastard pours a medium amber color with a frothy, light-brown head. Mostly lasting, sticky head with good lacing. Aroma is much less pronounced than the original AB, with notes of pine needles and a musty scent. Initial taste is balanced at the front with a light bitter/faint sweet, remaining a light bitter through the finish with a taste of grapefruit. Light to medium in the mouth, it has active carbonation and a creamy texture. The oak chips don’t expose themselves in the aroma or taste, and with no predominant scent, we were grasping to describe the aroma. Reviewed on February 3, 2007.

Bottle courtesy of HogTown Harry via trade- much thanks Harry! I poured the twelve ounce bottle into a tumber- looks similar to normal AB- a little cloudy, deep caramel with an off white. Also smells typical AB, sweet, but the wood is noticable. Taste is just fantastic- in your face hoppy, but with a great malt backbone and the oakey flavour. The oak is defintely there- but not overpowering. It reminded me of the oak in Old Yeti. I think it really matches well with the style of AB. Mouthfeel is of a great body, medium carbonation and bitter/woody finish. I could drink many of these- but alas this is my only bottle. A great treat, that even the wife thought was delicious (who would have thunk it?). A great beer from Stone

Not significantly different from Arrogant Bastard — the oak just a whisper in the background. So, this is every bit as good as Arrogant Bastard with an added bonus. Cloudy copper pour with dense-bubbled, beige head that pools like a Belgian strong ale. Strong malty nose — bread and caramel and floral. Flavor is sweet with oak in the background before turning very bitter. Medium body and comfortable carbonation. Long, bitter and dry finish. Nice.

What i had here doesnt seem to be at all what everyone else was tasting, the aroma was big time prune raisin malt with just a touch of the oak, wow ,flavor jolts you, a woody smokey malt taste is quickly washed over by a massive hop taste and bitterness,finishing with a dry bitterness that contorts the tongue,one of the bitterest I’ve ever tasted and an absolute joy to experience. Thanks again Awaisanen

Boutip (4964) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Beerandblues2: Poured a dark brown color ale with a nice medium brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of citrus hops with some nice caramel malt. Taste is sweeter then expected with lots of caramel malt and a medium bitter finish with some citrusy hops. Body is definitely above average with some medium carbonation. I thought the oak presence was quite subtle and overall this is more reminiscent to a barleywine then an American Strong Ale but enjoyable nonetheless.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 From a trade with Immy the Skull Popper. Poured an attractive amalgam of orange, red and brown. Doesn’t sound that attractive when I type it, but the colors swirled together underneath a two-finger tall slightly fluffy, off-white head and ended up looking quite pleasing. Citrus and pine in the nose with only a little bit of wood noted. The flavor rolled from citrus to pine to a bit of alcohol and finished fairly crisply. I’m curious to try the non-oaked variety.

Courtesy boboski. Reddish chestnut color with a very thin head. Serious oak flavors present, which meld with the strong hop presence and the two flavors are exquisitely balanced. Woody aroma with a hopa roma that sits underneath, with some sweetness as well. Medium palate, with carbonation low, but complimentary.
