Oak flavour doesnít taste as prominent any more with every time tasting this. Just a shame the regular version hasnít made it to Europe.

Coyler (112) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 13, 2013
Big, powerful, lots of malts, oak, alcohol well masked, hints of pine, vanilla, lived up to the name. Fantastic

You will get more hop aroma than oak at the start. Nice light oak notes when drinking, but definitely not as heavily oaked as the name implies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rodneykm (111) - Westminster, South Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Extremely hoppy (per the norm with Stone). In this case I wasnít impressed. Very bitter, too much of a fruit type taste. Not my favorite.

chalicemaster (111) - Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Absolutely do not drink this cold, or even particularly cool. As it warms, the flavor from the oak chips really begins to come out, and itís much better for it. Pours a very nice deep red color, with an off-white head to match. Thereís a typical Stone bitterness on the tongue, with some citrus and creaminess that lingers for a while. The oak element is subtle, this isnít your typical íbarrel aged versioní of a beer, itís very light with some sips more pronounced than others. IMO, it compliments the famous ABA tactfully.

Natai (109) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Decent off-white head with good pacing. Light flavor and body with a slightly metallic finish. Flavor less pronounced as it warms.

Rocketman2013 (108) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2013
This is a strong coffee flavored beer with a dark brown color. The body and texture suit the heavy flavor and aroma of this strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2009
The oak chips seem to really smooth down the bite Arrogant Bastard carries - smooth malt undertone of toffee and caramel carries the Arrogant Bastard hop profile of aggressive resin and pine hops smoothly along with the oaked wood. Nice stuff.
Sampled at Roziís Wine & Liquor, Stone Tasting Event, Lakewood, OH.

EvilCat (106) - FRANCE - JUL 29, 2014
Bouteille. Saveur Biere. Robe ambrée intense aux reflets rubis, mousse beige. Nez de caramel et de vanille. Bouche gourmande de caramel avec des notes légères de chocolat et une saveur puissante de cachou. Finale sèche de vanille, d'herbe et de bois. Une belle réussite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2007 Yuck! Iím not even going to bother going through the rating on this beer. It tasted like tree bark. When are breweries going to get tired of this gimmicky crap? Iím looking at you too Dogfishhead.
