This Arrogant Bastard is amazing. The Oaked smell invites me into it’s smooth taste and flavor. It’s color is a beautiful dark amber. It’s is a smooth and subtle as a bastard ale will get. There is no overwhelming flavor, just liquid goodness. Stays on my tounge well, it’s a great drink.I am highly impressed with this special beer. Great for all times of year!

Aroma of cherries, alcohol, marzipan and yeast. Deep rusty red. Flavour is hop heavy. Malts are more apparent in the aroma, hops are more apparent in the flavour. Laces well. As my mouth adjusts to the bitterness, the oak and yeast begin to shine.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Out of the bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a deep amber color with a tan head. Smell is deep oak as is the taste. The taste isn’t my favorite, but it definitely has an oak flavor.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Deep filling and malty aroma. Deep red-brown appearance. VERY bitter start and a decisively bitter finish. More of a pleasure to drink than the original arrogant bastard but it would be difficult to drink more than one in an evening. A great beer made better by the oak chip aging.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2011
12 ounce bottle- poured out a deep golden-red with a slightly orange head. Head was thick and firm, left ringed lacing the entire glass. Aroma was sharp, citrus with a sour undertone. Taste was citrus with so much woody flavor I thought I might get a splinter. A sour after-bite clamped my jaws shut. Palate was light and airy. Unique, but not as good as the name implies.

Like the original, except not as in-your-face. Soft, almost vanilla like body brings forward the oak flavor. Not sure I like this better than the original bastard, though it is an interesting and tasty beer!

ReademNwheat (174) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2008
From a bottle. Pours dark copper with off white head. Oak aging added a little oak flavor to the brew but not anything remarkable. This is still a great brew but I dont think oak aging was needed to make this brew any better than it is regularly.

udflyerfan07 (173) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2010
12oz draught at Chappy’s in Dayton, OH. Great amber appearance with a little cloudiness and light head. Aroma of wood, oak barrel, and burnt cinder. Tremendous oak, wood flavor going down. Really good beer. Tastes a heavier ABV then advertised. Recommended.

Reddish brown pour with a foamy thick head. Left an after unpleasant after taste. Expensive at 19 dollars for 6 pack.
