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 don’t 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.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 11, 2007
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 don’t 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 what’s that? vanilla. hmmm.... this suddenly takes me somewhere. i sip and ... i’m next to a campfire and its not smoke i’m smelling or tasting ... but i’m 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.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2007
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 oz’ers.

diabel (1680) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2007
Bottle at the Düsseldorf Gathering. Lightly hazy amber body. Creamy, lightly brown body. Splendid aroma of liquor and a lot of american hops. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet (caramel) flavour. More than ok, but the balance is not totally perfect. But still very complex. Not too aggressive.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, dark amber with an off-white head. Very pleasant hop aroma. Medium body with some caramel. A very discreet whiff of aroma hops, but otherwise just a raw and unrefined bitterness. A bit of a disappointment. 291206

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2007
Dusseldorf Gathering, Bottled. Very fruity and floral aroma mixed with whiskey. Orange/brown color, yellow head, good lace. Until now ok, but nothing exciting. But the flavor is something different. Sweet, hoppy, fruity, in the end very hoppy, not much oak though. Dry mouthfeel. Very complex, no exploding flavors but they are increasing slowly.

I know this is deemed a great beer but it just was not my type. The oak adds an od flavor to the palate and the finish. It did have good body!
