Has a nice complex aroma, smells classic. The appearance is perfect, nice and dark with a nice fluffy white head. Taste, wow!, the oak really comes through, very malty, has a nice leather taste to it, very rich.

A balance of complex elements. Wonderful deep red-brown liquid, khaki head. Sweet, some caramel, hops are definitely there, but balanced with the rest. A bit of sourness. Slightly piney aftertase. Will buy again. Recommending to a friend.

Almost a starter Bastard. I certainly expected something less creamy, and dare I say it subtle. But it gets bolder as it warms. Bourbon and leather-- like the Harvard Club.

What can I say being a BIG fan of the standard Arrogant Bastard. This Oaked version is outstanding and I was glad I was able to get it from my local store.

Ruby brown pour with solid head that dissipates quickly. Aroma seemed feint, maybe more so than regular AB. Very smooth with great substantial mouthfeel and subtle carbonation. Oak presence is more subdued than I expected but it is undoubtedly present. Better than AB but not worth the extra legwork and money to seek out regularly imo.

Undescribable. Oaked beer! It is very good and very different. It will remind you of a young bourbon, because of the ’oaked’, I’m assuming. Not the best, but very, very good. And different.

mnovacanes (61) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Appearance: remarkably quickly dissipating head; strong haze; dark reddish-orange Aroma: nice combination of malt, hops and oak; oak seems nicely integrated on nose Flavor: very strong hop bitterness (as could be expected from all Stone products); malt and oak present in background; not bad but no real "wow" factor Mouthfeel: Extremely aggressive carbonation eventually turns smooth and creamy; average at best

Poured a translucent brown with an off white head that dissipated quickly but left a lot of lacing. Smells of pine. Sweet tasting and hard for me to isolate the ’oak’, but really tasty nonetheless. Solid feel and holds its own against the non-oaked variety.

As good if not better than the original. Great body and good balance. Beautiful hop flavor. Have another? YES.

Love this beer. Very tasty hoppy caramel flavor with notes of oak. Oak chips actually floating around in the brew. Amazingly well balanced.
