Pours a dark copper brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with sort of a woody pine and oak scent, quite pleasant. Medium-full, somewhat viscous palate. Some malty sweetness and strong, but not overpowering, hop flavor. The oak is there, but subtle. Pretty nice, and well balanced.

Pours a dark reddish color. Has an aroma of spices and hops. Taste is crisp with hops that is not overpowering. Overall, a decent beer I would buy again.

Without looking, I know I have another Stone brew in my hands. Stone has very unique hop flavor all to their own. The oak is subtle. Balances the Beer nicely. As with most stone brews, I wish there was more sweet, malt balance to this mixture. The hops combination tends to be the center piece in this and most of there brews. I am a hop head but i prefer complexity to a singular taste signature. All in all, a nice beer though there are better Strong Ales out there...

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.

Reddish color with a creamy head. It was really smooth surprisingly, considering that the ABV is 7.8%. Overall a good smooth beer.

Evocatus (72) - USA - MAR 4, 2010
Pours a dark brown-copper hue with a thin dark beige head. Aroma is a mix of sweet toffee, smoked oak, and a hint of citrus. The oak barrel taste is definitely there as well as some alcohol, like a weak alcohol scotch/whiskey. A good amount of thickness, and little carbonation, which I like in a thick beer. for 7.2% ABV, not too strong on the alcohol taste which makes it very drinkable. A decent anytime beer based on pure taste. However, a bit pricey at $3 a bottle at a supermarket.

AJofDenver (71) - Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2010
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!

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!

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.

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
