Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Poured from draft into a tullip glass. Pours a nice dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is hoppy of citrus, malt and oak. Flavor is mostly bitter of malt and oak however the finish is a nice meld of bitter malt and oak. Body is full and decent carbonation. Overall a solid beer.

Bork (196) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Dominated by a long, dry, hoppy bitterness. A fair amount of dark, dried fruits in there, but not a whole lot of oak. Arrogant it is, but also immensely tasty.

This was pretty much what it explained. Arrogant Bastard on oak. I love AB...with the added dimension of oak it knocked it into five category for sure.

shaynsawchuk (491) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
355 mL bottle. Pours muddy rust with a lacy head of off white foam. Big oak, vanilla, bourbon, date, brown sugar, grapefruit pith, orange candy and deep woodsiness. Malty sweet, but balanced with a big bitter finale. Definitely full bodied, but disturbingly drinkable considering all that’s going on. A genuine shame I only have one.

The body has a reddish or garnet color with a haze. Its head is off white, about an inch tall and long lasting. A thin cap is maintained to the last sip and lacing is very good. In the nose I get a big hit of citrus and piney hops with a bready malty base backed by an earthy woody note. On the tongue there are loads of grapefruit and lemony citrus with some piney notes near the finish. This sits on top of a solid malty bready base with some caramel sweetness seeking in as well as a touch of dry oak. The finish is long and filled with hop bitterness and dry oak. Its palate has a good medium to full feel with nice lively carbonation.

S_Side_Smitty (463) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Pours cloudy brown with a medium light tan head. Aroma is heavy malts, chocolate, and oak. Taste is very similar with the oak up front. It steadily transforms on your palate to hoppy bitterness and nice chocolaty malts in the finish. There’s a hint of alcohol, but not bad.

The hops are outstanding, there is a nice bitterness to it that puts it in the upper echelon of beers

codfishh (68) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
Poured from a 330ml bottle its a little old, hops have faded a little. Lots of bready malt and oak on the nose. Taste firm bitterness, herbal hop flavor lots of oak, tannic finish. Nice beer.
