Pours a brown amber. Sweet oak scent. scent. Citrus backbone with a wood finish. Not what I was expecting. I remember Arrogant Bastard Ale being more tasty?

Peregrinari (148) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 16, 2007
(draft) This is really a top notch brew. Fruity aroma with cherry and apricot. Medium redish amber color. Good strong lacing and fairly decent head. Flavor starts sweet and alcohol with woody notes and changes to some hop and cherry. Well balanced finish. Very good.

Bottle. It pours a very dark hazy burgundy with a beige head that creates some nice, lasting lacing. The aroma is quite intense of ripe plums with some oak and pine qualities. Malts seem to be a bit more dominant in the aroma with some hops lingering in the background. As the brew comes in contact with the taste buds, there is a variety of flavours that abound. The initial flavour is very malty. The citrusy sweet plum in the aroma is pretty dominant in the initial flavour before the hops starts to make its appearance. Pine is also very evident as well. As the brew passes the tongue, the hops flavours and bitterness increases rapidly, overcoming the citrusy qualities. In the final finish, the smoky oaked flavours mixes in delicately with the hops. A dry, strong, but not intensely strong, bitterness persists through the finish. A few people I know preferred the original over the Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale. However, I actually really enjoy this slightly over the original. The oaked qualities aren’t overpowering and mixes nicely with the other flavours.

Brewsmith (148) - Torrance, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
From a growler filled at the Stone brewery. This beer is all the wonderfulness of Arrogant Bastard, all dressed up. Deep red, hoppy, bitter, malty but smoothed out and with a slight vanilla character from the oak. An awesome beer.

Pours a cloudy copper color. Oak smell with hints of caramel and grapefruit. Medium body and has a malty smooth finish.

Allara (148) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours ruby red with a slight mahogany color, slightly hazy. Nice, full white head. Raisin, hop, booze, and malty notes coming through in the aroma. Nice medium body with a slight chewiness to it. Sweet, malty notes up front give way to a slight booze, slightly dry hop finish. Nice oak notes come through towards the end and on the finish. A very drinkable, balanced oak aged beer. Seems to tone down the standard Arrogant Bastard a bit. Enjoyable, worth 17$ for a six pack? Well that’s another question. Overall: (B+)

Blech! We had heard so much about Arrogant Bastard, and we were excited to try this special Oaked version of it. We did not like it at all. We bought a six pack and shared it between four people...we still have three of the six beers in our fridge.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. A brown and ruby brew with a tan head. Good aroma...at first just grapefruit but then I got an intantly recognizable burst of vanilla and caramel. Flavor has a sweet start, hoppy and rather generic in the middle but a definite long lasting oaked toward the end. Would have preferred more flavor complexity but do enjoy the addition of the oak flavor in the end.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Dark tan bubble head, very malty sweet aroma. Very hoppy and oaky. Medium brown beer has bigtime lacing on the lgass. Loooong hoppy aftertaste.

Poured a dark bronze color from 750ml bottle. Could immediately smell the hints of oak in this one. Really like the mixture of oak and hops in this beer, although I don’t think large price tag for six packs ($17-$18) is warranted. I didn’t buy this one, but if I could find it in a bomber I would buy it.
