12oz. Bottle- Pours a golden amber with fluffy tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is hops, orange/citrus, spices. Taste is the same, but heavy on a grapefruity aftertaste. Expensive, but delicious, and much smoother than regular AB.

Last beer tasted at the Barleycorns beer tasting. Not surprisingly, it was the winner out of the ten beers tasted, with a huge audience applause. Now, hopefully, no one hates me for saying this, but I am not a big fan of the arrogant bastard myself. That said though, I was still very impressed with the oaked version. The wood makes a huge impact on the taste and aromas, and really balances out the beer. To me, this is a definite improvement over the original, and a rather enjoyable brew.

Big - this was a tad buttery, mellowed the hops. What a monster that can be easily transformed. Nice rich caramel and toffee flavors with the hops meld into an easy drinker.

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.

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!

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

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.

Woody improvement to a classic. Great balance. Oak chips give more complexity to this ale. Balanced hops. I prefer this to the original, yet nothing special.
