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

Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper-red with a huge beige head and lots of lacing. Aromas of malts, dark fruits, and oak. Creamy, medium-bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Sweet flavor up front followed by strong bitterness from hops and oak. Very nice beer but not for the faint of heart.

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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Just picked up 2 12 oz sixers of this stuff in Pojoaque NM. Man is this an idea whose time has come - and just in time for the holidays too! Same surly undertones as the original Bastard, but the oak complements and smooths it oh so well, not unlike a fine bourbon whiskey. Rough and unrefined below the surface, but smooth as a baby’s ass on the finish. Imagine the ill-tempered original dressed and sobered up for proper Sunday company - until he gets caught in the upstairs bedroom shagging the preacher’s wife!. Delicious! Let me add, I’ll give this one a 5 especially because its not over the top in alcohol content. 8%+ alcohol is simply too much for anything called beer or ale in my opinion, no matter what the "conoisseurs" might say. I wanna drink - not sip - a good brew. Taste and quality-wise, there’s nothing lacking in this brew.

Really good brew...not too oaky thouigh...I am not bitching cuz I do not like a ton of unbalanced oak. Big malts and great hops as stone always does.
