Dark, rusty brown pour. Light, creamy head. Soft, dark fruit. Hoppy with a rounded oak finish. Subtle, but tasty. Not sure itís quite worth the money or the hype, but itís good.

I just dont know if I care for the "oaked" taste. Nonetheless, this is a freakin good beer.

Alright so Oaked Arrogant Bastard isnít for the faint of heart. Itís an American strong ale and is definitely more for serious beer drinkers. Be warned if youíre used to cheaper beers or weaker tasting beers this is going to be an utter shock to your system. It has a very very strong flavor to it and that usually surprises people that donít expect it. It pours out and has an off white head that isnít too heavy. It also pours with a reddish brown tint and has a slight floral oak smell with a hint of hops. It has a strong bitter taste to it and you definitely taste the oak essence that its infused with. After the initial hit is finishes with a slight caramel aftertaste that lets it go through smoothly. Great beer and itís a must try if you can take it

Pours a deep ruby/brown with a beige head, initially a thick head but dissipated into more of a lininig. You can smell hops, toffee and plenty of sweet malts. Taste is plenty of hop bitterness, pine, caramel with a lovely, strong malt backbone. Loads of bitterness, a little sweet also. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, long, bitter finish. A fantastic beer, though I think I prefer the standard Arrogant Bastard.

Bottle served into snifter. Short head, lightly carbonated, strong amber color. While classified as a strong ale it's very pleasing to the palate- far from overwhelming. Good oak hints reminds me of festival season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Enjoy by date is 2/16/11. Pours a reddish brown with a sold inch of foam. Good lacing. Syrupy sweet malt on the nose. Notes of oak and vanilla are present as well. Very bourbon-like. Full bodied with little carbonation but not so syrupy as to detract much from the drinkability. Not much different from the original bastard until you describe the palate. The oak hits you up front and almost drowns out the nice malt that, in my opinion, makes the unoaked version so great. Not bad though. Just a different character. The hops still come through strong on the finish but not as quickly or aggressively as the original. The oak lingers with the hops through the finish so you are left with a honey sweetness with a touch of bitterness instead of a wave of palate searing hoppy resin. This gives it a cleaner feel, making it easier to drink. I like this more than I remember. Maybe as much as the original.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured a deep dark red with small creamy head that disapated quickly. Aroma of some vanilla, grape juice, and caramel.Very hoppy but with the bitterness of a stout. There is a lot going on in this beer with some citrus, caramel, hops, and other sweet malts. I would like to try the original to compare to the oak aged.

Pours a dark copper brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with sort of a woody pine and oak scent, quite pleasant. Medium-full, somewhat viscous palate. Some malty sweetness and strong, but not overpowering, hop flavor. The oak is there, but subtle. Pretty nice, and well balanced.

Reddish color with a creamy head. It was really smooth surprisingly, considering that the ABV is 7.8%. Overall a good smooth beer.
