Aroma is caramel, hop and malt. Taste is wood, caramel and a lot of "double bastard"-ish. Taste didn’t last too long though.

Flaska från Privatimport. Klar rubinröd vätska med gulfärgat skum. Massiva dofter av tallbarr, kåda och citrus. Förvånansvärt mjuk och len inledning som sedan ersätts av ett ordentligt riv i beskan. Ekfatstonerna ramar in smaken på ett bra vis. Denna var riktigt smarrig. Ytterligare en fullträff från Stone.

vandc01 (90) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Enjoy by date isn’t elligible. Reddish color when up to the light, with plenty of bubbles coming up. Aroma - Slight oaky smell. Malty and inviting. Appearance - Nice pour. Half finger of creamy head. Taste - Really smooth ale for 7.2%. I can taste some of the oak on the back of the toungue. Palate - Medium body feel. The taste lingers nicely on the palate. Nice bitter after taste. Perfect carbonation. Overall - Very tastey. I would seek it again.

From BA review on 2-5-12 - On tap and served in a pint glass Appearance – Pours a deep golden amber color with a eggshell head that was thick and persistent. With swirling there was some very nice lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is lighter than expected. Mostly hoppy in nature; pine with a bit of citrus mixed in. The oak is detected at the end, but is relatively mild in nature. Taste – A bit of bitter hoppiness is the first to met the tongue. It is mainly piney in flavor. A sweeter malt flavor then comes into play. While the backbone of the sweeter flavor is caramel, there are subtle bits of oak and vanilla in there as well. Finally, some more bitter citrus hops come toward the end, rounding out the taste and balancing out quite nicely w the sweeter maltier flavors. Mouthfeel – With a creamy body and a moderate to average carbonation it makes it easy to drink. Overall – A tasty brew with a very nice and complex flavor profile. Only complaint would be with the oakiness, which is quite low for an “oaked” beer.

BLADT (653) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2014
From bottle. Pours a dark, ruby brown. Thin head. Some lacing. The aroma is very malty, with some wood undertones and a paired maple-vanilla sweetness. Taste is indecisive, at least compared to the the straight version. Alcohol presence is greater here. And the wood notes never really take hold. Alternately cloying and boozey, played over the great base . Arrogant bastard is an amazing ASA, but this oaked version works better in theory than in execution. It’s sad to see a beer you enjoy tarted up like this.

Franzen (346) - SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2014
Caramel, chocolatey aroma, bit nutty faint resin. Clear ruby with beige head. Prelude is a bit sweet and nutty and pretty soon overcome with bit bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation oily texture. Really good strong ale, one of my favourites

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 From 12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with lasting head. Aroma is oak with complex vanilla notes, with hop presence and malt sweetness. Flavor is hop bitterness with oak and woody vanilla. *The American oak chips are present during the brewing process, and are not added during a secondary fermentation. From Stone event at Brickskeller 6/1/09.

Brown color with a tan-ish head. Aroma and taste both had rich caramel malt characteristics along with oak and vanilla. A bit of sweet toffee as well. I really liked this.
