Bottle at Fall Beerfest In Toronto 2004. Ruby/copper in colour. Aroma was a little less hoppy then the regular Arrogant Bastard, slightly sweet with a bit of malt. The flavour was hoppy, some caramel, a little malty, oak? - not sure. Medium body, high carbonation. Finishes with a long bitterness. Very cool to try but I found that the oak did nothing to this beer.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 3L of potency! The "oaking" recovers the weak link in its older brother - the aroma. Otherwise (stright from AB review) great heavy malt, heavy hop barleywine styled champion. The taste of sherry is up front, with a loooong dry finish.

Thanks to daHammer for bringing this to the SE gathering at KP’s. The oak adds an interesting twist to the Bastard, by mellowing out the coarseness that I find in fresh AB. This will be a real nice one to cellar I believe.

Well, I should just cut-and-paste my AB rating here and add oaky...but there is one discernable difference. The oak seems to have mellowed out the acidity a bit and I like that.

Woody and malty sweet w/ slight flowers on the nose and dark fermented fruit, wood, and a slight soury malty sweetness on the mouth. The beer poured a deep brownish / red w/ thin head and decent lasting lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and well-rounded, full body.

Wawood’s Winter Part-e. Slikwilly Who Unfortunatly Could Not Make it, Was Generous Enough to Send This in His Place...and it was Most Assuradly Intimidating to Look Upon. Dark Brown Coloring with Big Head. Oaky Notes Very Noticeable on The Nose and Tongue. Not Very Balanced and For Once, I Believe I Enjoyed the Original Over the Barrell Aged Version.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Mahogany with a foamy off white head. Strong and lasting head that it is. Great lacing. Hoppy and familiar, but I’m not really finding much oakiness in the nose. Wait a second, after it warms up a bit, it comes out. Now the flavors is where the oak makes itself known. Nice and smooth. Alcohol bite with a nice bitter tail. Great malty body with hints of oak throughout. Can’t beat it. Thanks Jordo!

Dark amber color with great head and excellent lacing. Very hoppy aroma. Flavor is not nearly as aggressive as the regular Arrogant Bastard. Wood flavor kicks in as it warms. Not as good as the regular AB, IMO.

End of our baby shower at CAH, the diehards and I saunter up to the bar and say, "yeah, I’ll take that one." Slightly shocked looks from the bartender. Everyone in the immediate vicinity staring at the crazy people. It was a good moment. Poured a beautiful orange red color, vibrant head that lasted nicely. Big hop aroma, grapefruit faint, but solid earth and pine over a sweet backbone. Flavor matched, with the added touch of vanilla, courtesy of the oak. I found this to be a marked improvement over the original. Fantastic stuff that I wish came in a format I could buy more readily.

3 Liter bottle shared by goldtwins: Pours a dark copper mahogany brown with a frothy light tan head and thin lacing. Mildly hoppy with some light, dry oak and earthy malt in the aroma. Starts lightly caramely and malty sweet with some green hops and a very dry oaky finish. Sugary gritty mouthfeel throughout. Nice beer, but way to pricey. I wish they would’ve put this in bombers, especially with the O-ring problems goldtwins mentions.
