MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2007
Hazy copper with a medium head. Aroma of grass and pine hops, brown sugar and oak. Taste is vanilla perfume, oak, caramel and citrus. Complex, but conflicting tastes. Medium body. Bitter finish.

12oz bottle from Marcus. Dark amber/brown body with a medium sized, creamy off-white head. The aroma is dry, dusty oak almost piney, light spicey rye and caramel with a hint of citrus hops. The flavor is a bit jumbled and disorganized. Very dry oak, rye and grapefruit fight for control with some toffee sweetness in the backgournd watching the brawl. Medium body with hefty pressence in the mouth and a slightly bitter, dry end. ABV well hidden by Stone standards. I like the regular version quite a bit more than this.

Bottle. Pours a dark red/amber color with a nice off-white head on top that is lasting. Aroma is not quite as strong as the regular Arrogant Bastard. More of a vanilla, oak, and pine aroma. Flavor is similar to the aroma in that it is toned down from the regular version. More of a oak and vanilla flavor in the beer but not overbearing. The beer finishes with the same Arrogant Bastard taste profile with a nice malty sweetness. Hop bitterness is throughout also. While I prefer the other versions of the Arrogant Bastard to this one I still think this is a great beer.

Like the original, except not as in-your-face. Soft, almost vanilla like body brings forward the oak flavor. Not sure I like this better than the original bastard, though it is an interesting and tasty beer!

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
12 Oz bottle from Kevin- Pours deep mahogony/with ruby hues, and is topped off with scads of beige lacy froth. Massive wood/oak aroma, dank forest and pine, floral dripping herbacous honey, roasted malts. Taste is over the top wood juice, which suits me fine. Pine and citric hops, lucious wet leafy greens, tannic concentrated hop buds. Spiced malty finish. Itís mostly about the hops ní wood here. Very good. Thanks a lot Kevin!

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
12oz Bottle: Love the label, some good reading on there. Itís funny ícause itís true. Pours dark orange, big fat beige head that left terrific lacing on the bottle. Aroma is nice and sweet, chocolate, caramel, apple cores, and flowers. Interesting! The taste is of grapefruit, caramel, floral hops, macadamia nuts, oak, and grass. Yeah, it sounds odd, but it tastes great. But, as they say in the Goatmeal Crisp ads.. you wonít like it..

LinusStick (2860) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2007
I am not a big fan of the whole "Oak" thing and this beer reminded me why. I liked the original so why did they have to do this? The pour was beautiful. Dark brown with a 2 finger lingering head (the 2 finger linger as I pathetically say). The taste was earthy and almost like cough syrup. The bitter finish helped but not enough to pull it out. Bad gargoyle!

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2007 12oz, still no date. Pours a slightly hazy fuby orange with a two and a half finger light beige head. Aroma of piney grapefruity malts, a hint of vanilla, buttery burnt toffee, brown sugar sweetness and toasted malts. Flavor has some wood and piney hops, brown sugar--though not necessarily the sweet part, as this isnít very sweet at all--, and some toasty malts, and alcohol is somewhat noticeable. Semi dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation. Still donít see the awesomeness to this brew. Old rating follows. 12oz, no date. Pours a slightly hazy ruby with a two finger slightly yellow beige head. Aroma seems to have more caramel and less hops than the original. There is some brown sugar, toasted malts, toffee, and there may be a bit of vanilla. Ah, the alcohol, some earthy wood--I wouldnít go so far as to call it oak, though--with some moderate bitterness and a biscuity toffee finish. Mouthfeel is smooth but for a little bit of sharpish carbonation--if that makes sense. Moderately carbonated with a medium body. 7-4-7-4-13

Padron4KM (537) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2007
12 oz bottle. Hazy amber orange with a thin head.

Grapefruit aromas dominate. Light caramel and vanilla appear as it warms.

Flavor is mostly grapefruity hops, with some light caramel. Oak is not very prevalent, except for a dry woodiness on the finish.

Not noticeably different than regular AB, maybe aging will bring out the oak more.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 Yuck! Iím not even going to bother going through the rating on this beer. It tasted like tree bark. When are breweries going to get tired of this gimmicky crap? Iím looking at you too Dogfishhead.
