I get oak and hops for the aroma. Dark copper color. Nice off-white head. Leaving laces. Taste starts with bitterness from hops into an oak after taste. Well balanced.

Dark, red color on he pour with a brown head. Bouquet of hops and some oak and cherry. The oak aging definitely hides the alcohol taste, lots of malt, and sweet hints. Just too oaky for me, gives a hint of burning on the finish.

The oak takes the edge off the hops to produce a more balanced ale of excellent quality. This was my favorite beer from Stone brewing until I tried their Levitation Ale.

Extremely similar in taste to the normal version of Arrogant Bastard Ale, nothing significant enough to warrant a better/worse rating from the original version. Very drinkable, smooth with a dry finish. Slightly bitter with notes of caramel and citrus. Nice. K-2.9 S-3.8

Pours a very dark amber with a hazy appearance and a yellowish head that leaves lovely lacing along the glass. Strong malty, caramel presence in the nose, a bit of the citrusy hops as well. The flavor is all malt up front, sweet and strong, almost overwhelming the tongue until the also formidable hops rush in and finish off the ale with a powerful resiny, oaky finish. Despite its incredible potency, the beer is almost perfectly balanced and leaves the drinker wanting more. Possibly my favorite beer.

IBU 68. Got talked into buying a growler of this simply because of how hard it is to find. MAN am I glad I did. FANTASTIC ale, dark dark copper color, strong with the perfect amount of hops and a nice bitter aftertaste. LOVED IT ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I think I like the original better, nevertheless this is quite a good tasting beer. I would definitely buy it again for 3 bucks a bottle anytime. A bit of a bitter finish but it was a nice bitter, not a skunky bitter finish.

This poured a deep amber with a robust 3+ finger off white head and a nice amount of carbonation coming up. The foam is leaving a nice lacing all the way down my glass. The nose is big and wonderful, woody, citrusy and a bit of spice. Very hoppy beer with nice pine and grapefruit notes. The mouthfeel is robust and creamy. This is a delicious beer
