Loved it. Great, smooth and a bit smokey. The flavor was much more robust than the regular arrogant.

Pours a brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma is of caramel malt, floral piney hops with some citrus notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt, floral piney hops, some light toasted oak notes. Full body. Finish is sweet caramel malt, floral piney hops ending is sweet bitter hops with some lingering nutty oaked flavor.

Hazy red in color, standard head. Nice hoppy smell, very fruity. Nice and fruity flavor, and the oak aging is not overpowering, just enough to give a hint of bourbon.

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.

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

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.

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.
