355ml bottle from Drinkstore. Deep, dark clear copper, ruby highlights, big foamy light tan head. Fruity molasses nose, toasted malt, woody notes in the aroma. Flavour is toasted malt, dark fruits and big aggressive hops. Medium body, quite highly carbonated. Finish is toasted notes and nice dry bitter hops. (Cold)

Nice head, not much lacing. Nice dark amber color. drank at 40-45 degrees. Good mouth feel, nice finish not too hoppy. Smooth, easy drinking ale.

Bottle aged for a while. I like the regular Arrogant Bastard better - oaks give a musty aftertaste.

IBU 68. Got talked into buying a growler of this simply because of how hard it is to find. MAN am I glad I did. FANTASTIC ale, dark dark copper color, strong with the perfect amount of hops and a nice bitter aftertaste. LOVED IT

Oak flavour doesn’t taste as prominent any more with every time tasting this. Just a shame the regular version hasn’t made it to Europe.

Poor is a copperish brown with a two finger light brown head. Nose is oak and piney hops. Taste has fruity hops along with a bit of caramel and the alcohol hits you at the finish. A good ale overall.

Woody improvement to a classic. Great balance. Oak chips give more complexity to this ale. Balanced hops. I prefer this to the original, yet nothing special.

bottle. Light brown with two finger head. Not surprisingly, it’s much like the standard Arrogant Bastard, but with the addition of substantial woodiness, which does mellow some of aggressiveness of the base beer.
