Woody malty aroma with a light colored head. Lots of malt and bitter hop flavor with hints of caramel, vanilla, and fresh oak. Awsome brew.

Bottle. Other posters have detailed the complexity of this beer better than I can. However, I didn’t find the flavor or palate as exciting as most. Pours a nice head that laced well, the oak flavor is immediately present with other flavors of caramel malts, a bit of smokiness and possibly a tad bit of citrus.

Pours a dark ruby into a pint glass with a centimeter of beige head. Good lacing. Tart and bitter aftertaste. Very original.

Whew! While I do like this more than the original Arrogant Bastard as well as Double Bastard, I think the Oaked aspect of this is over marketed. I was really wishing for a quick hint of scotch or whiskey before the wonderful bitter beatdown came on. Still awesome though.

Dark brown pour with some head and pretty flat. Strong aroma of malt, sugar, hops, and oats. Couldn’t get too much woody aroma or flavor out of this one, but have had other bottles that do. Flavors are similar to aroma with sweet, hops and bitter providing the biggest contributions.

Again, many thanks to MrRomero for this fine brew. Pours dark amber with a thick, dense, creamy head. Some floral hops lingering, with mild spiciness. Initial caramel sweetness, that gives way to a dry, hopped bitterness, with hints of vanilla, orange, and mild spice, then dries out quickly with a tang of oakey, woody, mild alcohol near the back of the tongue. Oak adds complexity, but detracts slightly from the hoppiness this beer is known for. Let’s just say very interesting.

Hoppy and aggressive, but very nice. Dark with little to no head. Nice aroma. Taste of malts and caramel and a bit of pine like the original, but nice oak presence as well.

Another excellent Stone Brewing Co. beer. Noticed the oak in the finish more so than in the mouth. Smooth mouth feel and great hoppy spice.

A: from the start you can smell citrus fruit mellowed in sweet caramel malt. A: deep amber color with off white head that slowly disappears. T: great caramel malt to with a nice crisp finish due to the oak barrel aging.
