UXO (1255) - CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
Appearance: clear medium amber with one finger of dense light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel/toffee, pine, woody, citrus, tobacco, mild vanilla, hint of spicy rye. (9/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, strong bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Big oaky bastard with huge maltiness that is nevertheless just barely sufficient to balance the massive bitterness. Subtle, it ain’t, but man, it’s good. (17/20)

reebtogi (5356) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger cream colored head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine with caramel, herbal and woody notes. Taste is a pine and herbal hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is a nicely crafted brew, which is a definite improvement over the original. More mellow and smoother.

It's Arrogant Bastard with the edge taken off a bit. The oak is subtle but had an Arrogant Bastard before so could taste it but wonder if came first. I wish more oak on the aroma and palate though. I think I like it more than the original though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UncleKorm (1171) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bomber poured a clear deep brown hue w/ a huge creamy beige head and sticky lacing. Mild malty aroma. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are fresh oak, peppery rye, piney hops, and caramel malts. Medium bodied and creamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bnoel09 (570) - Elk Grove, California, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Poured from the bomber into a shaker. Dark mahogany/copper color with a foamy tan head. Aroma is quite mild - there’s some sweet malty notes with a hint of vanilla and roast and just some general earthiness. Flavor has some bready malts but they are masked by the hop bitterness. Not really getting any of the typical vanilla notes from the oak. Somehow the softness that usually comes with oak aging doesn’t exist with this beer; instead the oak seems to accentuate the pineyness of the hops and give the beer a little more bite. Medium bodied with a long finish and mild astringency. If I were blind taste testing this I’d swear it was a different recipe with higher IBU’s but regardless it is superior to the traditional brew.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2015
Tap. Pours light cloudy amber with tobacco creamy beige head, lasting head, some sediment. Aroma is yeast, sugar, old hops, vanilla, dry oak, fudge, fruity berries, strawberries, candied sugar, toffee and tobacco. Taste is malty yammy caramel, sweet and really toasty, raisins, oak, vanilla, red berries and tobacco. Dry finish, light bitter hops to balance out the sweet malts.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass very cloudy mahogany in color with a nice head, leaving a solid lacing on the glass, slight smell of bourbon, tasted kind roasted nuts and caramel with a slight bourbon burn at the end of the sip
