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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful copper-red with a huge beige head and lots of lacing. Aromas of malts, dark fruits, and oak. Creamy, medium-bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Sweet flavor up front followed by strong bitterness from hops and oak. Very nice beer but not for the faint of heart.

Phenomenal beer! Full bodied and creamy the oak aging makes this otherwise very good beer something really special. I am happy to say that I am one of the few...

I like this more than regular arrogant bastard. The oak really adds to the complexity and actually hides the alcohol burn nicely. Very easy to pound these back...

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 12 oz bottle. Pours reddish amber with a small, rapidly diminishing off-white head. Caramel and pineapple aroma. The initial malty sweetness is almost cloying, but it’s rapidly replaced by a heavy, oak bitterness like the bastard’s stomping across your taste buds in wooden shoes. Medium body - slightly syrupy. Astringent/tannic finish. Great beer overall.

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

wasnt sure what to expect after having both the original AB and the double AB. I was able to taste the original next to the oaked on tap at the brewery, and let me tell you the difference is huge! i definitely prefer the oaked! one of the rudest brews yet!

12 oz bottle- pours a hazy reddish brown color. Thin head that disappears slowly. Taste of hops and a slight oak flavor. Very smooth mouthfeel. Not an offending beer at all and at 7.2% it is very drinkable. Another good offering from Stone. Well done.

Fantastic hoppiness just like the original. I do like the oak but I feel like it takes away from the drinkability of the beer. I prefer the original but I’ll switch it up every once in a while.
