4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
had this at a fest. dark red pour, tan head. aroma is woody, lots of hops, nutty/caramel. flavor is a good caramel malt underside with oak note with a strong hop presence, especially in the finish. full mouthfeel. regular AB is one of my go-to beers, and this just adds to it a little. if only it was available in small bottles.

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

12oz Bottle. Pours a deep cloudy amber with a chunky off-white head. Hoppy aroma with some definite hardwood backing. Taste is surprisingly smooth with the hops being complemented or masked by the nice mix of cloven woodiness. Will definitely drink again!

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with a small short duration head. Immediate impact of hoppy bitterness under layed with a smokey earthy goodness. I could drink a bunch of these. Indeed.

This beer is so much like the original AB but just a little more balanced. The piney hop flavor and alcohol tones are dialed down a bit with the oak chips. Very nice flavor. I enjoy anything from Stone. They do it right!!

Not a big fan of oaked AB. Little to much oaked arrogance for me. Has a big oaked alcohol taste for it being 7.2%. I have had oaked beers that are 10% and I couldn’t tell at all. Not so with this. It’s just not a very enjoyable oaked drink. I think this oaked thing is just a scam. I couldn’t tell a difference. Maybe my palate is just not arrogant enough.

Not a big fan of the og arrogant bastard(too malty).........but this was different. Was thin bodied with just the right taste of vanilla coke mixed with a small hint of nut malt and hops. Appreciate the oak way more.

Amber-red color with a big orangey head. I do prefer this variant to the regular Arrogant Bastard. It seems a bit more refined with a nice touch of the oak. Very enjoyable.

Poured from tap. A dark red/brown color. Slightly hazy. Smelled of malt. Not the same level of hops as the regular Stone Arrogant. Good beer. Recommended.
