FOBAB 2004: Nice floral, perfume, citrus nose. More soft malt, cookie, yeast flavors with hops at the end. Surprisingly dry. No real oak, wood flavors or textures here.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 I had been looking forward to trying this one since I first heard of it. Sampled on draft the beer poured a dark mahogany color with a small tan head. The aroma was hoppy and had definite wood elements. The mouthfeel was rather flat. There was the strong grapefruity hop flavor that one expects to find with an Arrogant Bastard, but it was somehow muted and diminished by the noted wood flavor. The finish was very bitter. In all an interesting beer but I would rather have the regular Arrogant Bastard.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 Well, theres an investment, but if there is one brewery I trust it would be those crazies at stone. Fortunately, its quite a nice payoff. The aroma is a strong sweet leafy strong ale bitterness with a hint of wood hiding behind them making it more enjoyable. The flavor is just heavenly. At first it you get a hint of oak, charcoal and hops. The aftertaste is where the smoothed qualities of the oak really carry this through.

@AzRealAlefest. Pleasant woody aroma, citrus notes are hidden then emerge at the end. Swarming with flavor, the hop notes, sweet, woody, pepper, lightly bitter, then finishes dry. Each sip is delightful. Would be very enjoyable with a cigar. A bigger bastard this is.

Draught; 2004 Festival of Barrel Aged Beers (Chicago):great head retention: tan & creamy on top of a clear, bronzed body with ruby highlights. Sharp pine (chlorophyll) aroma with a strong hop cone presence, amazing it could be so fresh after being in an oak barrel…the palate has subtle gestures of sweet vanilla beans and toasted malts with a striking bitterness coming through in the finish. Overall this one didn’t have the creaminess I would have expected from an oak aged beer, but did have a little more malt balance than the standard Bastard.

At FOBAB ’04. Very woody aroma that disguises the AB nose. The flavor has a very woody and pineapple flavor. Lots of hop flavor but very low on bitterness (from aging?).

Draft. Two friends and I were given free half pints at Chalkies in Indy by the owner, first pours after tapping the keg. Nice guy. Very fruity aroma. Oh, boy. Looks delicious. Great appearance. Verry hoppy flavor rich with complexities. Man this was good. Better than the regular Arrogant.

The big 3L bottle, glad we could get enough people together to purchase this thing. Tons of oaky aroma, very sweet caramel malt and some great floral citrus hops. Pours a deep red, perfectly transparent with a tall ivory head. This brew was very smooth compared to the regular AB, much more blended feeling and more lively flavors due to the carbonation. Taste starts with a sweet caramel kick and nice oak flavor, slight spiciness right away, then a big wave of fresh hops jump out. This brew finishes with a big bitterness, followed by a dry finish and trailing hop bittered finish and the oak just lingers a while afterwards with a nice dry feeling.

Damn this Bastard is good! Pours a nice blood red with good almost too much carbonation. Has a really nice hoppy, sweet malt nose, with some spiciness. The Oak wood hits your taste buds first with some bitter spicy malts, then turns to a very smooth malt body ending bitter.
