SB (334) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottled on 1.10.07. Poured brown. Nice looking bubbly brownish head. Nice lacing on the glass, and a nice pattern left in the beer. Aroma of pine and malts. Huge hop hit of pine and grapefruit flavors with the first sip. Grassy notes in the end. As it warmed up I got sweet caramel notes in the back. Not as much oak as I would have expected was it was nice what I got, not overdone. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. Dry finish, medium to full bodied. Mouth feel was creamy and smooth. Nice tingle on my tounge from the carbonation.

Bottle (at the Dsseldorf Gathering): Strong fruity and aromatic-hoppy nose; robust to strong bitter dry flavour, medium bodied; lingering distinctive dry resinous-hoppy finish. Very decent stuff.........

A strongly hopped, alcoholic ale with a fruity, hoppy aroma. The aftertaste is spectacular. This beer simply explodes with flavor on contact with the tongue. Excellent beer!

I did not like this as much as the non-oaked version. For one I just dont think hoppy beers work well with the oak cask thing. Pours with a nice thick head ruby color. A little smoother tasting and finish has some wood to it and some sweetness which I found to be somewhat off.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2007
dark brown in appearence, aroma of citrus hops, smooth, drinkable, with an bitter finish. extremely complex,-breads, citrus, chocolate, but lacking in the "oaked" department. expecting something smokier. Nice beer, not so sure how often I will have it due to the price

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Very dark amber body, off-white large, rocky head with lacing, sweet, fruity hop aroma with candyish malts. Complex body with a sweet start, sweet but bitter body, some smoke and some breadiness in the very bitter finish. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel, nicely done. I dont get the oak specifically, but this is somehow rather different that the regular version. 9 5 8 4 17. RERATE 9/07: What is it about STone beers that when I find one I like, the next time I have it it sucks? On tap. Minimal nose, minimal malt, minimal hops, medicinal. Tastes like the wood absorbs all the flavor. Nuts.

An aroma of hard citrus hops. If bitter is aroma you can smell it in this beer. It makes your mouth water. A slightly hazed maber/brown our wiht a guey lacing. A flavor of grapefruit and apples. If there is oak in there I dont get it, but it is still excellent. A solid palate neither over carbonated nor thin. Overall a very good beer.

Tap at the Brickskeller. Pours a cloudy, orangish red appearance; light tan head with great retention and lacing. Piney hops, maple syrup and some wood in the aroma - dank and overripe. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: enormous amounts of citrus and piney hops (some grapefruit, lemon); wood character, certainly, although more dry cedar than a toasty oak (which only shows at the end). Lengthy finish: citrus hops and some warmth from the oak.

Courtesy of drewbeerme, we did a side by side Arrogant vs. Oaked Arrogant. They were actually very different beers with the vanilla and creamy flavors from the oak that put a nice spin on the original. Amber colored with a beige head. The aroma is hard to place at first though its something familiar. ... lemon citrus hops, orange zest, spice, with whats that? vanilla. hmmm.... this suddenly takes me somewhere. i sip and ... im next to a campfire and its not smoke im smelling or tasting ... but im reminded of a camping trick. You core out an orange, pull out the fruit and fill it with vanilla cake batter ... tinfoil it .. throw it in the fire... and when its cooked you peel apart the orange peel leaving a steaming delicious vanilla orange cake ball. With a little PNW hops and a citrus vanilla drying finish ... tasty stuff.

12 oz bottle thanks to crosling. Poured a rather murky shade of brown with translucent copper top dusted with off-white. Nose was of what I would imagine pear juiced gummy candy would smell like... laced with rum-soaked oak and darker fruits. Sticky-sweet flavor of bitter and juicy pears and grapefruits, charred woody caramel, faint calvados, and a bit of vanilla at the finish. Syrupy on the palate with higher but well-balanced bitterness.. juicy finish. Very good stuff.. glad it made it to 12 ozers.
