Nice bold beer. The brown amber color was intimidating right from the start but it was a nice drnk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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!

Dark brown pour with thin caramel head. Hops, some dark fruit, a little bit of spice are all evident. Smokey finish from the oak chips. Nice beer.

Brown [probably similar to the "regular arrogant bastard"] orangeish red highlights. Tan cream head, sticky lace down the sides. First sip too cold ... lots of flavors third sip some time later.. rich nuttyness some bittering around the tongue, but not usual hoppiness. A different flavor, somewhat like the different of regular AB but also the Oak perhaps? Rich, complex deep flavors. I got a bit of sticker shock, never paid that much for a six pack before, [12.46] but after reading the forums [and doing the math] Itís really not such a bad deal after all, and maybe it would be nice to have this and other richer stone offerings in 12 oz bottles.

Tasted like Arrogant Bastard, but the oak gives a more complex flavor. This one is definitely better cold.

This just does not have the pop of the original Arrogant Bastard. I was disappointed, as I thought that the idea of oaking this brew might give it a little extra flavor. I was wrong. It seems to me that all they did by oaking it was mellow out what is supposed to be a punch-you-in-the-face american strong ale. Itís still good, but if I see oaked, and original sitting on the shelf next to each other, I would pick the original AB 10 out of 10 times.

Dark burgundy body with a rich creamy head - on tap in a pint glass. Amazing layers of flavor, as the subtle oak tones blend perfectly with the dominant hops and hints of pumpernickel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to Kevin for sharing this gem. Pours a thin red color with a tan head. Aroma of sweet hops and caramel hints. Agrressive hop flavor with a huge mouthfeel. The oak is very subtle in this brew. Despite the lack of oakiness, does have quite a bit different character than the Arrogant Bastard. Great Beer. Thanks again for the samples.

pours a dark copper/brown with a medium off-white head. Citrus and pine hops with a nice oak and caramel malt backbone. Flavor is a ton "softer" than the regular Bastard, not as bitter and finishes much smoother. Full-bodied, but very drinkable. Great Strong Ale.
