Amazing stuff. Poured dirty red with a great lasting head. Aroma is musty and sweet. Flavor is sour, tart, bitter, then sweet and tangy.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2007 12oz bottle released 6weeks ago. pours mahogany with fluffy head. looks tasty. aroma of PNW hops with malty backbone, smells sweet with vanilla and maple syrup aroma. flavor is very malty with loads of PNW hop flavor without being overly bitter. very subtle oak characteristic but does add a good amount of vanilla. balanced to perfection. the drinkability is very high and i believe you could drink this at all occasions. with food, as desert, mowing the lawn, a winter warmer, a first, middle, and/or last beer of the night. too me thatís rare.3.9

11/14/07. 12oz 2006 vintage, cellar aged 13 months.nice creamy head that lasted. nose has some nice vanilly and oak with citrus hop notes that are toned down a bit. flavor are vanilly, light oak, and subtle aged malt-tobacco notes. this isnít any better, but it actually held up pretty nicely. iíll try it again at 16months but iíll be pretty shocked if it is still tasty at 24...3.6

In bottle at various gatherings and on tap multiple times at Papago: Pours to a dark, opaque brown colored body with a medium tan colored head. The aroma is a bit toned down from the original Arrogant Bastard, however it still shows a nice blend of pine-scented hops alongside caramel, malt cola, and some aromatic oak wood. The taste shows plenty of oak, which blends nicely with the pine-like hops and sweet caramel, sweet malt flavors. Medium-full bodied, moderately carbonated, finishes with some lasting oak and hop notes.

Dark orange brown with medium tan head. Aroma is piney with just a hint of caramel. Taste is somewhat more bitter than I expected (I guess thatís the oak), and overall I am not as happy with this as its unoaked variant. $3.50/12oz

This reddish brown ale poured with a modest off-white head that dissipated rather quickly. The aroma is flowery and pleasant. The beer is heavily hopped, resulting in a crisp pine-like taste which is altogether pleasant. The oak aging has improved upon the original recipe.

Poured a clear, dark auburn. Aroma was like the regular version. Aroma of mainly hops and pine; light oak component. Not too pronounced. Oak presence throughout the taste. Made it more complex and smoother. Liked it better than the original

On tap @ Coles Buffalo, NY. One my favorites to date, The oak seems to mellow it a tad. The color, aroma & flavor are what you would expect on this improved version of AB. Looking forward to the bottle version

Bottle poured a dark red with a big white head. Big hops and citrus aroma and flavor. Strong but not overpowering.

Right away you know you are drinking one seriously kick-ass beer. The aroma just blows you away. Much like regular AB, this beer has an intense, pungently hopped up aroma but the thing is thereís the oak that gives it some extra depth. If itís possible to improve on AB, this did it. Pour is a deep brown/burnt orange, clear with a big off-white head and excellent lacing. The oaked character on the taste, like the aroma, give is a much deeper flavor but it just makes it taste better, not overpowering it any way. It sort of smoothes out everything, making everything taste better. Great beer.
