DigitalMan (193) - Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2009 After trying several different regular Arrogant Bastards, I’ve sort of concluded that it may be a bit of a temperamental beer... that when really fresh, it’s really hoppy/bitter... but near or past its printed date, it can be flat or just "off". The Oaked bottle I got is great just like the best Bastards, but with a smoother front end and a more lasting finish (where the oak is noticeable to me). Nice one.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Deep redish color with a light tan head. Aroma is pine and hoppy. Taste is somewhat bitter and hoppy with a hint of oak or wood. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2008
On tap at Sunset Grill in westend Boston. Dark brown with tan head, much darker than the regular one, I thought I had the wrong beer. Tasty, woody, malty, hoppy. Surprisingly different than the regular, not as bitter grapefruit.

rollerton (192) - SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle at Haket. A very muddy look, dark and with granules of oak(?). Aroma of strong, malty ale and whisky, at least a hint of oak. Taste is complex and rich. A surprisingly good ale!

codfishh (191) - 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.

kromamc (191) - ITALY - AUG 29, 2010
colore ambrato scuro schiuma pannosa persistente... naso molto aggressivo di luppolo resinoso che si mischia con un intenso caramellato e tostato.. palato molto delicato invece che contrasta con l’odore così intenso... finale amaro non esagerato e molto elegante... eccellente stone

The oaking has shot that pesky cat that was pissing in their brew kettles.The pine forest is eliminated and this is now a well balanced brew.I can’t believe it’s the same brewer.Top shelf product.No sweet taste for a 7.2% brew.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2012
Citrus notes, primarily orange on the nose with a hint of darker fruits. In the mouth the kick of sharp citrus is immediately followed by a sweet, dark fruit malt which fades to hoppy bitter finish. Alcohol is quite present throughout which gives it an element of dryness, but the malt remains dominant. The oak is not particularly noticeable in itself, but it defiantly smooths out the bumps in Arrogant Bastard, which is a welcome element to the brew.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - SEP 19, 2005
Bottle: Jeroboam. Pours dark with a thick head. A little bit of hops in the aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty. Smooth drinking. A little agressive for my tastes.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pour from 12 oz. bottle. Cloudy russet color with fluffy off white head which laces nicely as it dissipates. Aroma of warm leather and grass. Hops far outweighs the taste of malt but even then is wrestled to the ground by the oak. Light malty citrus in the finish. Too bold for me to have more than one, but a nice fuller beer that could pair nicely with more flavorful dishes, pungent cheeses, heavy garlic or tomato sauces.
