Pours smooth with a thick creamy head. Reddish orange when held up to a light- slightly hazy. Smells of caramel, maybe toffee and there is a tang of hops in the scent... or maybe that’s just my anticipation kicking in. Definitely related to the regular AB with somewhat subtle oak flavors. Could have had more prevalent oak, but glad to see it wasn’t overdone. I suppose it’s a bit like The Price is Right... Can still taste the citrus-tree-sappy hops on the sides on my tongue about an hour later, delicious.

12oz pour to small white head and deep brownish color. Nose of candy + oak, too much oak. This would be better if it was oak from bourbon barrels or the like. Dogfish Head’s version of 90 minute soaked in bourbon barrels is awesome, this is mediocre at best. Glad I bought only one. My least favorite offering from Stone.

Bottle @ home. Pours in a hazy amber with a respectable off white head. Aroma is fruity, sweet with notes of strong citrus and resin hops, and alcohol. The flavor is hoppy (resin & oak), caramel, nutmeg, and of course oak which is moderate and less than I expected. Bitter hoppy finish. Nice but I prefer the oaked 90 minute from Dogfish Head .

I didn’t leave a favorable review for the regular Arrogant Bastard. So I thought I would try this to see if there was a difference. There wasn’t.

California I P A s have made a name for themselves for their aggressive but balance of hop bitterness and smooth drinkability. This oaked Arrogant Bastard pours a slightly red golden color producing a medium head that fades away quickly. Pine resins, hops and slightly sweet spices assault your senses even before the first sip. This brew has a medium to full mouth feel and as to be expected leaves a pleasant bitter after taste. One of my favorite I P A s! Be forewarned this beer has an ibu of over 70.

Bottle at home. Pours mahogany with minimal lacing and head. Aroma is malty; not a ton of oak. Taste is smooth malt with pleasant hop bite. Finish is really smooth. Nice effort.

Nice bold beer. The brown amber color was intimidating right from the start but it was a nice drnk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Pours a dark brown, crystal clear. Small, slightly tan head leaves decent lacing as it recedes. Sweet nose of burnt sugar, caramel, and maybe grape? Flavors of candy sugar, caramel, and slight wood., Expected a lot more oak in the flavor. Slightly more bitter then regular Bastard. Medium mouth feel. Coats well if you roll it around. Spot on carbonation level. Great beer, but not worth the extra money over regular Bastard.

Red muddled mess of translucence pour into my class with a reasonably off white head. The oak notes are immediately detectable. The flavor is overpowering and a bit more malty than the typical bastard. Well balanced, crisp finish...great beer.

Look: pours a cloudy light brown. Just a little darker than amber. Off light tan head that disappears quickly. Smell: oak. Hops. Alcohol. Tobacco. Taste: oak, alcohol. Tobacco, like an unlit cigar. Black pepper. Feel: thick mouth feel. Leaves a film on the mouth. Fairly heavy carbonation. Overall: don't like this near as much as am regular arrogant. Not sure if it is the oak or what but not quite as good. First drank: home 7/15/14
