Thin head, with a nice malt-brown color to it... Smells great...a hint of florals with a nice roast to it too... tastes great....this is pricy as hell (I paid $18 for a 6 pack) but overall is well worth it

As good as it gets for American Ales! Stone has the Gold Standard here with Arrogant Bastard. If I could only have one beer ever again, this would be it. Bastards! MKH---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a deep reddish amber with off white head. Roasty campfire aroma with a citrusy/floral hop character. Flavor is very complex, but very balanced. Semi sweet and quite bitter. With a very resiny quality and lots of tannins. Full bodied and slick on the mouth finishing with a long astringent nature that leaves you hungry for more. This one has a right to be arrogant!

Storm_Warning (82) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Currently drinking whilst typing. Aroma is of sweet caramel, toffee malts, spicy piney hops and oaky wood. Appears as a ruby copper vessel with a cream coloured head with nice lacing. Tastes of sweet wooded alcohol, pine and spicy hops and nutty toffee malts. Nice bitterness which lasts through the finish. Palate is full and smooth textured with a tingly carbonation. A nice beer overall but personally I find it too oaky, but definitely worth drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally had this, loved the regular arrogant for ever, this one is great big hoppy and malty in both nose and flavor, evident oak throu out! Oak added and did not take away from experience! Perfect guys!

Dark, rusty brown pour. Light, creamy head. Soft, dark fruit. Hoppy with a rounded oak finish. Subtle, but tasty. Not sure itís quite worth the money or the hype, but itís good.

Very nice pour, dark brown and the aroma is very nice, malts and complex fruit. The taste was very nice, fruity and complex, but left me wanting a little bit more.

apotekhin (79) - ISRAEL - AUG 27, 2013
Sweet and sour oaked aroma with hints of caramel and rye a little. Deep mahogany color with a good head retention. Malt and oak flavor with fruit in the middle (cherries) and hops in the end. Dry finish. Rich and smooth body. A relatively drinkable and delicious strong. Well balanced without too much IBU.

I just dont know if I care for the "oaked" taste. Nonetheless, this is a freakin good beer.

Alright so Oaked Arrogant Bastard isnít for the faint of heart. Itís an American strong ale and is definitely more for serious beer drinkers. Be warned if youíre used to cheaper beers or weaker tasting beers this is going to be an utter shock to your system. It has a very very strong flavor to it and that usually surprises people that donít expect it. It pours out and has an off white head that isnít too heavy. It also pours with a reddish brown tint and has a slight floral oak smell with a hint of hops. It has a strong bitter taste to it and you definitely taste the oak essence that its infused with. After the initial hit is finishes with a slight caramel aftertaste that lets it go through smoothly. Great beer and itís a must try if you can take it
