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. It’s 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

One of the better APAs I’ve had. Nice floral hop pressens and a very solid malt back bone. I really enjoyed this one.

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.

Keg at Southern Sun. The waiter said this one was acquired becasue management knew someone who knew someone...whatever. I was gald to come by at the right time. This was a whallop to the taste buds. At first I did not like it...tasted a little more sour than I thought it should have but after some more time on the palate it mellowed. I got the sense that this was aged in an oak barrel but the commercial description says it was aged with aok chips...big difference...it tasted like it may have been aged in a burbon oak barrel. There was some kind of additional taste that I could not pin down...I will have to try this one again.

have had a bunch of bastards but just now got around to rating it. probably one of the best drinkable beers on the planet. pours a thin off-white head. dark red in color. oak flavoring is light. smells are grapefruits, spice, and wood.

Reddish brown beer with slight head. Aroma is of wood and hops. Taste is pleasantly bitter and wood. Finishes nicely.

12oz Cask. Head color of citrus zest dissolves in three minutes to a partial foamy covering with some big soapy bubbles and lastly to lovely pond scum all over an amber with haze body. Notes are hoppy and bitter citrus with lavvender soap. Taste is medium bitter. Carbonation and body are medium to light. Finish is long and bitter. Not much "oaked" about it but decent overall.

12 oz bottle, quite cold, pours a dark orange color with very little head... just some fat bubbles sitting on top. Aroma of pinecones and a Christmas tree.... more pine and resin than I have ever smelled in a beer. Tastes... strong. Predominantly bitter hops, but then a sweet roasty oaky taste that makes the whole thing really come together. Much better than the regular Arrogant Bastard... maybe not quite so arrogant?
