Wow, thanks a bunch to LANDSEER for sharing this fantastic brew with us. I didnt really think that this would be that different than the regular arrogant bastard but having the chance to taste them right after each other really helped to solve this problem for me. More oaky (duh) with vanilla and cream(?) in the nose. THe taste is again oaky with a maltyness that stands out just a bit less and a more bitter finish than the orig. Great brew overall.

Finally broke this one open out of the huge bottle. Poured out a nice reddish color muchlike the normal bastard with a thick frothy head. The aroma was somewhat hoppy with some notes of wood. The taste I found was a bit smoother than the normal bastard and had nice notes of oak and slightlly mellowed flavors from aging with the oak. A unique twist on AB and I have to say that I liked it a lot.

Draft Rich Oís: Poured a deep amber color with a large fluffy tan head. Moderate grapefruit aroma and a bigger grapefruit taste. Light caramel, malt. Dry bitter finish. Light carbonation. I need to go back and have a regular AB since I havenít had one in a while and compare the two. Good.

Deep reddish amber color, orangish tan head, looks the same as the regular bastard. Fuller aroma, leafy hops, firm malt and some of the oak but not much. Flavor seemed to take a step back and lost some of the nice malt hop interplay of the regular bastard. The body also seemed to suffer a bit from the aging. On its own, a nice beer, but Iíll take the original Bastard any day over this.

jgb9348 (4732) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Crimson coloured body with a good brown/amber tint and an off-white head. Aroma of strong wood, vanilla, oak and a subtle hoppiness. Medium-bodied; Strong oakyness throughout, almost no hops at all in the taste. Good oakyness in the aftertaste almost too much however. This was simply a showstopper-this one had pretty much everyone at the gathering sit down and contemplate this beer. Many many thanks to Mike (the_beer_god) for bringing this hefty 3 litre bottle...this was probably the only chance iíd have to taste this monster. I sampled this 3 Litre bottle at the November RB party at Founderís in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-November-2004.

Hazy chestnut w/ rocky pale tan head. Excellent lace. Big, leafy hop aroma of citrus & pine w/ a sweet, malty undercurrent. Full, firm feel. Very hoppy w/ enough malt to support & balance. Some notes of vanilla are evident & finish is dry, peppery, & vaguely wood. This beer is comparable to its non-oaked, bottled counterpart, but paled in comparison to the lively, fresh draft pints Iíve quaffed.

A great experience, a 3 litre bottle shared with many fans. Beautiful dark colour, pour. Excellently hopped,moderated by choice malts, oak bits give flavour. Bitter and wine-like finish and aftertaste. Pine and some grapefruit in nose. Carmel and grapefruit in mid-sip. Medium-full mouthfeel. Lovely.

Thanks to everyone who chipped in for this at the Toronto Xmas í04 party. Looks an awful lot like A-B. Nose is hoppy - floral and slightly painty (?) Sweet cotton candy malt. Tastes like a mellowed out AB. Sweetness and hoppiness in normal AB is there but held back by this oakey smoothness.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 October 2007. 12 oz Bottle. Hazy dark amber body with a moderate creamy beige head. (3+) Aroma is less intense than expected but pleasantly hoppy, resiny, light earthiness to the malt could be oak or just me looking for it. Decent bitterness in the flavour, moderately resiny, less rounded hops than I recall. Finishes a bit thin, and average palate is lighter than feels appropriate. Pleasant but a let down. 7/3+/7/3/15 - 3.6 <P>Toronto Christmas Party 2004 3L Bottle. Friggin heavy bottle to pour! At like $100+ Canadian I managed to overflow Joey_Capps glass. (Boo-urns!) Dark ruby coloured body, pours with a big head that leaves behind a smallish beige/tan head and some nice lacing on the glass. Big hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and resiny. Hops dominate the flavour with lots of citrusy grapefruit. Bit of a different finish, woody? Nice medium body. Not sooo different from the regular Arrogant Bastard, though I did enjoy this version more. Could just be a fresher sample as well. I picked up some woody notes but I am not sure how much of it was actually there and how much was just me wanting to find it there. Would never have paid the money on my own, thanks to everyone who chipped it on this and Joey_Capps for instigating the process. 8/4/8/3/17 - 4.0

Deep amber color with a good head. Nose is very similar to Arrogant Bastard Ale with sharp and tangy hop nose. Taste is a mild yet very tangy at the back of the mouth ale. Somewhat like Arrogant bastard lite. Mouthfeel is satin. Aftertaste is lingering malt tang.
