This beer is good. I donít like it quite as much as regular arrogant bastard, but itís good. I think the aging process made it a bit too malty, and the beer has lost itís agressive edge. Iím not a hop-head, but this was a little funky malty and cloying. Nevertheless, tis a good beer. All Stone beers are outstanding. This brew tastes a bit more like a belgian dubbel, with bit more hops. It is darker and less red that regular AB, but the carb./head are similar. This beer is smooth, and the oak is somewhat apparent in the flavour, and itís all quite well rounded and malty, with dark fruit, and still a bit of citrusy pine like reg. AB. Itís a nice beer, but not quite as remarkable as the reg. AB. One can find better, more complex, tastier belgians, which is what this beer kinda tastes like.

Strong bitters but awesome in its smoothness. Pine and citrus. Pours a dark amber with lots of head.

Poured from the bottle into a shaker. Like the original brew, it pours a deep, dark amber with ruby overtones to it. The head on this pour was a little small, still with lots of carbonation rushing from the bottom, leaves excellent lacing throughout the glass. The nose is a little mellowed in this one compared to the original brew. There is still lots of citrus and piney resin hops, and the caramel sweet malt is there, but itís been smoothed out with a roasty, oaky aroma. The taste is very hop forward, lots of citrus flavor. The oak is there, but not overpowering like youíre drinking a beer with whiskey in it. The malts have a more dark fruits, roasty taste to them. Mouthfeel is very full, mildly carbonated, slightly oily with a long bitter finish. Very excellent beer. It is an Arrogant Bastard slightly mellowed by the oak. I will have another please.

Pours brown/red. Smells of wood and hops are noticeable. Smooth on the toungue and on the way down. Good follow through. Can I get a job as a beer taster at the Stone Brewery?????

Pours amber just like regular AB but the smell is a lot more mellow. Oaked tastes similar but goes down smoother than the regular. This is good because more can be had, but the kick of Arrogant Bastard is what makes it so great.

A really good american strong ale. Rich in flavour, lovely copper colour, hoppy but not too hoppy, and nice touches of oak. Nice!

Deep red color, minimal off white head. Aroma excellent. Lots of hops and roasty malts Taste is superb with strong malt backbone touch of coffee and, of course a nice hint of oak. Deliberate bitterness that is well balanced. Excellent beer.
