As close to a perfect beer as you can get. Complexity that takes the awesome Arrogant Bastard and adds hints of vanilla to the already nice balance of malt and hops.

As a general rule, I enjoy Stoneís products. I was not overly impressed with this offering though.

the aroma is of slight alcohol and damp oak and dough. red brown appearance with lingering egg shell colored head. slight aggressive at first with a dry lingering finish. caramel malt notes. just the right amount of carbonation to compliment the bitterness

Appearance - Poured a dull head that does not stick. Slightly cloudy. No visual carbonation w/o agitation. Light amber color. Smell - Strong hops smell. Slight woody and smokey smell. Citrus. Slight boozy. Taste - Similar to smell, the woodyness shined through somewhat. citrus was stronger in the taste. a light yeast flavor. bitter(unpleasent) aftertaste. Mouthfeel - Great carbonation. crisp. Drinkability - ? Great drinkability, smells of booze, but does not taste of it nearly as much. Glass: snifter Serving type: bottle

Iím again and again amazed at this beer. It pours with very little head. The aroma is mostly of biscuity sweet malt caramels and milder earthy hops. At the front you get a slight oak with an amazing bitter-sweet caramel malt that is completely identifiable outside of the hops. Itís like eating caramel malt straight from a supplier. As it transits over your tongue it becomes slightly more bitter from the hops, and it really gets your appetite going for the malts at the front again. I canít believe how well the hops go with this beer. I wish I knew what hops they used for the flavor/aroma. Bottom-line this beer is not as buff as one might think from the name. There are plenty of beers more hoppy and plenty of beers more malty, but this beer takes an amazingly balanced approach. This is award winning beer in my mind.

Love this beer. This is my favorite of the Bastard beers that Stone produces.

Stoneís heavy hitting flavor can be a bit over powering, but the dynamic bitter taste deserves itís arrogance. However, that arrogance can be a bit strong after awhile. Best enjoyed in smaller doses. And clean your palate before moving on or the aged oak flavor will linger on for some beers to come.

This is such a great flavor addition to the perfection that is Arrogant Bastard. Unfortunately, itís a bit difficult to find anymore, despite the fact that Iím merely 10 miles from the brewery.

A very good ale. Nice blance of oak and hops. A great ber for special occasions. Price puts it on that "I can find something that tastes almost as good for 1/2 the price" list.

Bottle. Pours dark amber with a small off-white head; leaves some lacing in glass. Aroma is subtle mix of malt, oak, and hops. Flavor is roasted malt, dried fruit, oak, and bitter hops. One of the best Iíve had. Goes well with a handful of almonds.
