ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Bottle. Pourse a rusty color with a decent amount of light tan head that settles. Aroma is oak, caramel, floral. Taste is subtle oak, malt, floral, grapefruit. Palate is medium, long lasting, oily and sticky. Great beer. This is, IMO, how things should be oaked. Should add complexity not overpower the beers natural qualities.

Dark amber, nice head, soapy lace. Caramel like aroma, hop resin thoughout. Medium-full boded, nice in mouth, fairly velvety, oak dryness makes its mark just enough to change the character from the regular AB. Drier, bitterness does not linger nearly as long as the original IMHO. A biit more overall integration of flavors.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2006
2006 version, drank fresh. Deep dark red color with nice lacing of white cream. Aroma is rough rich hops and a wealth of malt. Very nice. Flavor of arrogant bastard with an oaky dry finish. Delicious if a bit raw.

Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Pours hazy dark brown with an average sized creamy light brown head. Aroma is heavily hoppy of grapefruis mainly. Flavor is lightly sweet and heavily bitter and finish the same with the added flavor of acid. Long finish. Light to medium bodied, oily and softly carbonated. Again as with most stone brews, gave me a headache after. Sour grapefruit is the dominate flavor and its hard to pick out any others, very one dimensional.. I did not notice any diffrence in the oaked vs the non oaked arrogant bastard. There is no hint of oak in this brew.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
Draught at Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Pours a lovely deep ruby-brown with an average size lasting off-white head. Aroma’s milder then expected, it starts with sweet malt and oak followed by alcohol and hops. Dry flavour of roasted malt, hops, oak and alcohol and a very bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not as great as I expected, it’s much more subtle then I thought it would be and though I prefer the regular Arrogant Bastard, this is still a damn fine beer.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2006 Bottle from Paul (blankboy) Thanks. Looks identical to AB upon pouring. Smell is hints of wood and hops. Taste is brutal and hoppy - this is definatley a fresh sample - with some notes of vanilla and oak that arent in the regular version. Not a bad beer, but I believe it begs the question: why tamper with something as good as Arrogant bastard?

updated. this gave me a pretty bad headache after finishing the glass. not pleasing at all to me. i was expecting much better..

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2006
All the beauty of AB, but with some additional aromas and flavor zingies. Sweet wood, soft whiskey and chewy bark complete the beer. Compared to other oaked beers, this one is rather woody, which I liked. Sweet whiskey is also rather evident throughout. Tasty stuff.

zathrus13 (1734) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Pours a deep copper/amber. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, brown sugar, and some fruit. Flavors are hops...grapefruit and pine. Also some vanilla and malt. Hop flavors overpower this a bit.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Dark ruby brown pour with a small dense tan head. Mellow grapefruit and vanilla aroma with hints of dark fruit. Malty vanilla and oak flavor up front, slighty nutty flavor in the middle, little bit of honey, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Medium body.
