mnovacanes (61) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2010
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

Bottle from ABC. Pours a thick, dark brown with a very thin head; gone almost instantly. Smells of caramel maltiness and faint vanilla. Dark fruits abound. The oak taste definitely comes through for me. Full bodied, oily, thick mouthfeel and a really smooth finish. Acquire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

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.

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.

Out of trappist glass. Great rush of hops from the pour, delicious balance of strength and complexity, the oak adds a nice, subtle flavor that complements the overall brew. A small beige head with good lacing. Got this as an X-mas gift and couldn’t be happier with it.
