Almost a starter Bastard. I certainly expected something less creamy, and dare I say it subtle. But it gets bolder as it warms. Bourbon and leather-- like the Harvard Club.

Poured a translucent brown with an off white head that dissipated quickly but left a lot of lacing. Smells of pine. Sweet tasting and hard for me to isolate the ’oak’, but really tasty nonetheless. Solid feel and holds its own against the non-oaked variety.

Appearance: remarkably quickly dissipating head; strong haze; dark reddish-orange Aroma: nice combination of malt, hops and oak; oak seems nicely integrated on nose Flavor: very strong hop bitterness (as could be expected from all Stone products); malt and oak present in background; not bad but no real "wow" factor Mouthfeel: Extremely aggressive carbonation eventually turns smooth and creamy; average at best

Undescribable. Oaked beer! It is very good and very different. It will remind you of a young bourbon, because of the ’oaked’, I’m assuming. Not the best, but very, very good. And different.

Bah, i just wrote a review that my computer ate up. Okay, quickly: pretty amber-red color, nice head, but that dissipates pretty quickly. Smells like old wood dirt/earth... and then florals. Weirdly enough, it tastes really citrusy and is way too hoppy. Why is it so hoppy? I think the taste and smell are a bit mismatched, though neither individually is terrible. I like un-oaked arrogant bastard ale better.

As good if not better than the original. Great body and good balance. Beautiful hop flavor. Have another? YES.

Love this beer. Very tasty hoppy caramel flavor with notes of oak. Oak chips actually floating around in the brew. Amazingly well balanced.

exparte (59) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2009
12 ounce bottle. Pours with an appealing 1/4" tan head which dissipates quickly but laces extensively. Lovely deep reddish brown color. Flavor is quite similar to the normal AB but with considerable more alcohol warmth and a hint of vanilla. A truly glorious beer.

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.

BoydJustitz (58) - Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Pours a deep brown-red color with a thin head. Aroma is hoppy with a touch of malt. The flavor is strong with the expected hop bitterness but not nearly as overpowering as in their Ruination IPA. Oak taste is present but not as much as I expected. Overall an excellent drinkable ale. Love the theme and the sarcastic intro on the label.
