It’s hard for me to really disrespect a beer this way, but I did not find the OABA palatable. I sort of feel like Larry in that one episode of Curb describing his wine as tasting a little like a tree, but the oak is just a bit much here. It pours pretty and smells great, but it just isn’t very tasty.

Got in bottle from Bev Mo of of Tustin Ave in Orange. It was too cold as I pulled it from the fridge. So it was a cross between a double bastard and a regular arogant bastard. But as it came to room tempurature the oak came through nicely and the hopss went from big to huge. Cloudy as they say but does not affect anything except appearance rating. Great balance between caramel, hops and oak. Great beer

On tap at the Brewery... it was a little darker than the standed ABA, and had a nice and subtle sweet taste on the tounge. The oak seemed to take away the slight alcohol burn that the regular ABA has... very good brew

Pours nut brown, moderate carbonation, thin head, lingering lacing. Fruity, mango aroma, matched with a strong spicy hops backbone, and lingering bitter, even tannic aftertaste. Unusual, but very enjoyable.

Improve on the original bastard? They probably can’t. I most likely wouldn’t like it anyway. Throw some wood in it. Done.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2014 Deep redish color with a light tan head. Aroma is pine and hoppy. Taste is somewhat bitter and hoppy with a hint of oak or wood. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - DEC 30, 2007
Copper/amber colour. Small fizzy head that dissapates. Smells like grass (alfalfa) and a hair salon or barn-hay (HOPS!!!!). Strong hay flavor with lots of bite. Really slams into the back of your tongue. Marketing is cute but aims to make up for the lack of drinkability.

MrStitch (138) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark stained wooden color with a nice tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is wood, hops, and malt. Flavor is excellent! Smooth and warm with hints of oak, hops, and malt all playing off of one another and leading to a clean finish. A great beer that I will most certainly be drinking regularly.

12 oz bottle. Small off-white head that is mostly diminishing. Pours a clear amber. Mild citrus, hop, and woody aroma. The initial flavor is dominated by hops. The oak aged taste comes on the back end, kind of spicy. Medium body, creamy texture. Mild carbonation with spicy, hoppy finish. Complex beer yet drinkable. Other than the price tag, would have no problem drinking this every day of the week.
