Bottle from Total Wine. Mahogany amber color with tan head. Aroma is resin with some vanilla. Taste is pine followed by some maltiness. I expected more oak.

Pours dark amber with thick eggshell head. Grapefruit and floral wafts from the glass. Pine and citrus dominate the flavor with a nice oaky finish. Smooth mouthfeel with nice carbonation. It's like an IPA on steroids. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Medium amber pour with good fizzy head. Aroma is a little sweet and sour, very hoppy. Flavor is hoppy but very smooth, the oak is a nice mellow addition. Slighly watered down on the finish.

A slightly more mellow and not so harsh version of the arrogant bastard. Still bitter but the oakiness makes it easier to take. Quite tasty!

At first there is a flavor that starts out with a hint of oak and finishes with a sweet brown sugar like ending. The sight is that of a deep brown with hints of a red throughout the glass. A molasses like start hits the taste bids and finishes with a sweet subtle port like finish. One of Stone’s best beers!

12 oz bottle. Pours a chocolaty brown with a small light brown head. It has a malty fruit aroma with pleasant spices. It tastes of sweet raisins, spices and caramel with moderate carbonation. Oaked is something I feel like I’d drink next to the fireplace in winter- it’s very good.

A. Dark red hue, off-white head, 1 finger thick head. S. Tons of sweet pine, citrus, slight oak T. Lots of citrus, lots of oak, lots of pine M. Medium body, slightly coarse, dry finish. O. An okay beer. A ton of oak and pine. A little too much. Nothing really special about this beer. Try it if it’s handed to you, but I wouldn’t pay $7 at a bar.

Usually I don’t find that oaking improves a beer. This one is not exception. Copper color with large head. Oak and some other flavor, perhaps vanilla, cool off the hops. Too smooth for this type of brew.

I tried non-oaked before this version of the AB. Hoppiness is still definitely present, but the oak adds a creamy flavor and texture that mellows out the hops. Adds some dark color and lots of complexity. Great brew, not hesitate to buy it again!

My first Stone beer, and very happy to try it. This beer was a lot darker than I expected with a dark red/amber color. Tastes is very good, almost like an IPA with the hops very present. I did not taste much of a "wood" flavor, but there was a heavy vanilla flavor present to me. It was really nice. The only thing I felt held it back a little was that it was overly bitter for my taste (not a surprise at all) but still put me off a bit. Nice beer.
