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.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2006 Got on tap at Richo’s. Amber body with tanish head. Great hoppy armoa and great carbonation. Finished smooth with light oak flavors

Pours cloudy and deep amber, almost the color of the bottle. A very thin off white head lingers around the glass. The first sip has a huge oak presence, which becomes milder and sweeter in subsequent sips. All around a good beer, great for someone who enjoys a nice whisky or scotch, but the oak may be a little too much for some.

355ml bottle, enjoy by 05/03/13. Pours a chestnut brown color with a small cream-colored head. Aroma is incredibly pleasant with notes of figs, raisins, brown sugar, malt, toffee, a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Taste is first up slightly sweet with some dried fruit and toffee notes, taken over soon by a hoppy bitterness and lightly roasted malty notes. Ends with an earthy, grapefuity twang. Palate is light and juicy with medium carbonation.

Bottle. Poured indistinguishable from the non-oaked AB. I found this one interesting, but not as delicious as the original, which I prefer hands down. Regardless, this is pretty damn good.

I am not going to go into heavy detail here. It has all been said. Less hoppy than the original with a wood flavour instead. VERY nice. Another outstanding Stone brew! I happened to meet them at a beer convention on Long Island, NY just before the release of the 6.6.6 last year. Very nice guys! Keep up the great work!

I love ABA and the Oaked is great too, I wish they put ABA in a oaked bourbon barrell. Oaked ABA kicks ass though. Seems a little more oakey in bottle than on tap, but I have only had it out f the bottle twice

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2005 Sampled earlier this year on tap at O’Brien’s in San Diego. Appears a dark garnet hue and makes a thick creamy offwhite head. The in-your-face chinook hops that are present in regular arrogant bastard ale are nearly gone here and replaced with a very smooth oaky/vanilla. Flavor is very round about the most well balanced I have ever seen from a Stone product. The elements of the chinook hops are again subdued by a velvety layering of vanilla. This is very rich. Medium to full body on the palate with a very creamy finish. I really wish this were a regular offering, it is incredible. I have also had this cask-conditioned, but I prefer the draft version.

amazing aroma hits you when poured into a glass, bark borwn in apoperance. hugely complex and a deffinate slow sipper. flavour really develloped as the glass warmed up. certainly nice, but only one required.
