Pours smooth with a thick creamy head. Reddish orange when held up to a light- slightly hazy. Smells of caramel, maybe toffee and there is a tang of hops in the scent... or maybe that’s just my anticipation kicking in. Definitely related to the regular AB with somewhat subtle oak flavors. Could have had more prevalent oak, but glad to see it wasn’t overdone. I suppose it’s a bit like The Price is Right... Can still taste the citrus-tree-sappy hops on the sides on my tongue about an hour later, delicious.

I didn’t leave a favorable review for the regular Arrogant Bastard. So I thought I would try this to see if there was a difference. There wasn’t.

California I P A s have made a name for themselves for their aggressive but balance of hop bitterness and smooth drinkability. This oaked Arrogant Bastard pours a slightly red golden color producing a medium head that fades away quickly. Pine resins, hops and slightly sweet spices assault your senses even before the first sip. This brew has a medium to full mouth feel and as to be expected leaves a pleasant bitter after taste. One of my favorite I P A s! Be forewarned this beer has an ibu of over 70.

Bottle at home. Pours mahogany with minimal lacing and head. Aroma is malty; not a ton of oak. Taste is smooth malt with pleasant hop bite. Finish is really smooth. Nice effort.

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.

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

ChrisFields (95) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Poured a dark bronze with a thin light head. Aromas of caramel, toasty grains, and apricot. Tastes of roasted nuts, smokey wood chips and sweet malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. Overall very good.

400lb_midget (93) - West Bend, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2010
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.

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
