It really tastes like you’re making out with a tree. I probably will be after a couple more of these. Cheers!

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.

Not too different from the original (not that that’s a bad thing). I can’t say I tasted the wood, which may be a result of all the other flavors mixed in. Though it didn’t blow me away, it is a great choice and is more economically packaged than the original. This will require more research!

The pour is a nice amber with a good off-white head. The nose is strongly floral hops, with some yeast and oak hints adding to the rich aroma. The taste is largely grapefruit, with undertones of coriander, yeast and syrup. A pleasant and refreshing beer worthy of many more!!

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.

Poured from a bottle, San Diego. A dark, old aroma like a crypt, with a rich fruitiness like plum coming through a wall of piercing hops and blanketing malt oppression. Pours a primordial brown haze with an insolent, creamy head. Beware of staring into the abyss of this beer, for the beer looks back. In its spectral, ancient sea of darkness is a character that stares back into your mortal soul, threatening your sanity and the survival of your immortal soul with the oppression of an eternity of spiritual slavery and madness. The flavor is biting, hostile really, with a depth of character (wood and something hearty and sweet in the front, with hops & bitterness in the back) that challenges your strength and courage. The bitterness, outstanding in its perfect construction, taunts you ceaselessly. The otherworldly hops work their way into your mind like an aggressive parasitic infection, controlling its host like toxoplasmosis in the hapless rodent, leading it to its end. While your soul is in jeopardy under the shadow of this ancient and bestial assault, the afternotes gently caress you and numb you like morphine for the spirit, comforting you like a warm blanket, inuring you to the death pangs as your soul faces damnation, your spirit enslaved alone in the face of cruel, uncaring, dark eons, madness swirling in your being, taking hold of your consciousness in an oppressive vice grip, slowly drowning you in a whirlpool of madness, STOP! DO NOT DRINK, I TELL YOU! THE BEER IS DAMNATION! One of the most delicious ’extreme’ beers I have tasted, and really quite drinkable. This beer has a lot of character, more than any other Stone I’ve drank, and is FAR more than an IBU/hops experiment!

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!

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.

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.
