Thin head, with a nice malt-brown color to it... Smells great...a hint of florals with a nice roast to it too... tastes great....this is pricy as hell (I paid $18 for a 6 pack) but overall is well worth it

Bottle. Pours a deep reddish amber with off white head. Roasty campfire aroma with a citrusy/floral hop character. Flavor is very complex, but very balanced. Semi sweet and quite bitter. With a very resiny quality and lots of tannins. Full bodied and slick on the mouth finishing with a long astringent nature that leaves you hungry for more. This one has a right to be arrogant!

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.

Very nice pour, dark brown and the aroma is very nice, malts and complex fruit. The taste was very nice, fruity and complex, but left me wanting a little bit more.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Good head with nice retention. Lacing was decent. Interesting flavor added by the oak barrel aging. Definitely one to try. Didn't like it as much as the standard Arrogant Bastard Ale. --you've been Dubbed.

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

Darker color, inbetween stout and IPA. Smells wood and sweet , more rough, tastes more oak, slightly too bitter-woody. Not as inviting as their IPA.

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

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
