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 Chappyís 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.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
On keg at Craft Beer Co., Clerkenwell, 20/03/13. Translucent, dark mahogany. Good, light brown head, diminishing. Good lacing. Light carb. Aroma - Candy sugar, spicy aromatic wood oil, dates and piney hop. Taste - Mid sweet. Candy sugar. Lovely, rounded woodiness & dark fruits. Mid hop bitterness, quite floral. Bit of spice. But the dry, sour, carbonic taste is a bit much. Tangy, dry, bitter finish, with faint fruity bitter aftertaste. Medium, sugary body. Nice, rich flavours at the front, but the finish is a bit too bitter.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 24, 2007
12oz. Bottle- Pours a golden amber with fluffy tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is hops, orange/citrus, spices. Taste is the same, but heavy on a grapefruity aftertaste. Expensive, but delicious, and much smoother than regular AB.

Angry (bottle). I thought it was smoother and more refined than the regular Bastard, but the hopiness still kicked me in the teeth. Finish lasted quite a while and was more pleasant than the first bitterness you get. Overall impression was helped by the cool bottle.

Last beer tasted at the Barleycorns beer tasting. Not surprisingly, it was the winner out of the ten beers tasted, with a huge audience applause. Now, hopefully, no one hates me for saying this, but I am not a big fan of the arrogant bastard myself. That said though, I was still very impressed with the oaked version. The wood makes a huge impact on the taste and aromas, and really balances out the beer. To me, this is a definite improvement over the original, and a rather enjoyable brew.

metalhead0043 (168) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2013
12 oz bottle for 3.49. Pours a very dark, clear copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is heavily malty, with a little bit of wood and a slightly hoppy backbone. Taste is similar; heavily malty that really takes the edge off of the regular Arrogant Bastard. Some oakiness rears its head, as well as some vanilla and hops. Body is slightly thicker and creamier, not as thick as the Double Bastard ale though. Overall this is my favorite of the Arrogant Bastard beers. Itís the most drinkable and doesnít have that extreme bite on the end.

Big - this was a tad buttery, mellowed the hops. What a monster that can be easily transformed. Nice rich caramel and toffee flavors with the hops meld into an easy drinker.

12 oz bottle. As others have noted, I expected this to be an AB that added a decent oak note. Not so. Donít get me wrong - this is still a fine beer and certainly typical of Stoneís talented brewers. But itís not much different than the regular AB. Itís quite tasty!
