UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Dark amber pour with tan head. Oak aroma with herbal hops and roasted nut malt undertones. Taste follows the nose. Very nice blend of oak, malt and mild hops. Alcohol is hidden. Creamy, think body that lingers. Outstanding beer.

Dark red when held up to the light. Not much head, even on a hard pour. Nice and bitter on the back of the tongue. Tastes like grapefruit. Wonderful!

Massively hopped nose along with detectable oak notes. Predictably bitter, tastes like gnawing at the side of a thickly barked tree probably would., and then comes the bitter. Beautiful looking beer, a rich red. Prefer the non-oaked version and actually prefer Stone’s standard IPA above all their other offerings. Definitely a different taste and something you may want to try if you need to experience variety for the sake of variety itself. OK.

Bottle. Pours ruby with a creamy mahogany tinged head. Aroma is burnt caramel, sweet malt and sticky hops. Big malt backbone from the off, toffee, burnt sugar, treacle, piney hop creeping in and finishing with a lingering bitter kick and a staying smoky quality resting on the back of your tongue that kind of just dominates out the other flavours in the end. A good beer but just a big malty hop bomb with no endearing qualities

Great aroma on this beer! I think I detect some fruit on this one. Deep red and amber color but not much of a head. Oh well. Oak and hops dominate the flavor. Malt at first and smoke in the after. Some bitterness in the finish. Good stuff...better than the original in my view.

Pours much like itís non-aged brother, slight woodsy smell. Tastes like a mellowed out bastard with a young rough Bourbon back end.

Off tap at Rich-Oís. I would have to say it was as good as the stuff I had from the 3L earlier this year. The beer poured a nice rubey-hued brown with one finger of tan head that didnít want to leave the beer. The nose was sweet rich caramel that gave me tones of strawberry when it intertwined with the citrus hop. Lots of grapefruit hop, but everything mellowed nicely by the oak. The flavor was blended so well. Sweet caramel malts that are so rich and full nd a very sweet grapefruit hop with tones of vanilla swimming underneath it all. Just fantastic. The feel was moderate to thick, smoot hand creamy. Fine Fine beer. Overall, it is as good as it gets. So close to perfect. I will have to have it again and again and again if I can get it to decide if it is perfection.

RoboHop (21) - Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Well, it is "oaked". One should definitely be able to distinguish this brew from the "normal" Bastard. The "oaking" adds slightly to the aroma and flavor, as compared to Arrogant Bastard. Therefore, I rate it slightly higher.

Oak matches hops perfectly. Great body for a dry beer. Sweet but not cloyingly, balanced bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
