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.

Decent off-white head with good pacing. Light flavor and body with a slightly metallic finish. Flavor less pronounced as it warms.

pfc514 (124) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Right off the bat, the oak aroma rolls in with the base layer of the standard, slightly bitter arrogant bastard ale. Dark red pour, subtle ruby coming in when held up to the light. The taste is absolutely perfect. Subtle, but unmistakeable oak blends in with the standard Arrogant Bastard taste. Perfectly balanced. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Plamadude30k (122) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2009
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.

jimmiec (122) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 30, 2009
12-oz bottle Marcello’s Lafayette, LA - aroma: bread, nutty (malt), maybe citrus (hop), oak,; flavor: sweet, salty, earthy, bready (malt), biiter, citrus (hop), oak; appearance: clear brown, tan head, lot of laces; mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish; overall: a hard beer to describe but smooth, not harsh (high alcohol), complex beer of malts, and hops with oak aging and smoothing it as well as adding to the complexity .

Pookie9121 (122) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2009
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.

jnelson_22 (118) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2010
Pours clear amber/red with a nice, sticky, off-white head which leaves some nice lacing. Nose is strong, piney, spicy hops with a nice malt backbone and hints of vanilla. Mouth is initially smooth with strong piney, citrus/passionfruit, grassy hops quickly developing with sweet malt, chocolate, some wood and caramel on the swallow with lingering grassy bitterness and sweetness. Pretty strong hop bitterness present througout, but held up well by the malt, though not as balanced in the swallow. sweeter than its brother...

Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Deep amber color with a somewhat lumpy, inconsistent head. Aromas of pine and fruit cocktail. The taste is very good, toasty caramel layered over with pine, fruity, and oak notes. Creamy rich body. A lot of fruitiness on the finish with more woody notes coming through late. Distinctive without being outrageous. Recommended.

portermax55 (118) - Canterbury, Connecticut, USA - NOV 21, 2007
12oz. bottle. Pours a clear, dark amber color with a light grey head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of citrus fruits, grass, hops and mint with a slight hint of oak. Flavor is of hops, grapefruit, malts, with the oakey flavor coming in near the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety. You can really taste the oak in this one, but I perfer the regular version much more.
