Shanebrews (210) - Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2013
This is an excellent beer. The color is akin to Oktoberfest. The aroma is both floral and herbal. The taste is rich and malty, but with proper hopping for style. My one complaint is that though the oak certainly adds to the quality and character of the beer, I cannot sort it out of either the nose or palate.

Dark copper body, with a full, pillowy white head. One of the most beautiful looking beers I’ve ever laid eyes on. Aromas are pine cones, and wood. The flavours also feature the pine and oak, but caramel malts are shining through as well. There is also some earthy dankness in the mix. A dry bitter finish rounds out the pleasure of drinking this one.

androman (682) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
12fl oz @ brauhaus, Edinburgh. Body is deep ruby amber, big particles, head is medium tan creamy mostly diminishing excellent lacing. Nose is honey, aroma is oak chips, rotten wood, leaves, light licorice. Light sweet, medium to heavy heavy roasty bitter, later more hoppy. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Excellent dessert beer, easy to drink, very interesting, perfect balance.

chinchill (2556) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
undated 12 oz bottled served in a large Austrian glass mug [from notes] Pours a cloudy orange-brown with a moderate tan head. he creamy head has very good retention. Spicy hops, a floral note, roasted barley and a woodsy hint of oak in the nose. There is more than a hint of the woodsy oak in the taste, and more hop flavor than I expected given the aroma. Moderately bitter, with some detectable sweetness early on. A lasting, malt- and oak-tinged hoppy aftertaste. Medium+ body; good carbonation, but perhaps a tad high. O - a richly flavored beer with no obvious flaws. I enjoyed it and can see why some others have given it high ratings, but the flavor profile was not entirely to my liking.

Saeglopur (634) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 355 ml bottle, cellared for several months.
Dark copper body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma with loads of dried fruits, vanilla, biscuit, some berries, oak.
Taste is pretty hoppy, with citrus, berries, stone fruits, pine, tea, imbedded in lots of smooth malts, like caramel, vanilla, biscuit, with nice, subtle, dry oak notes.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
In the finish there are lots of dry oak notes finally, with bitter, zesty hops and subtle malts.

Tasty! Complex, multifarious and really smooth to drink, all with a quite moderate ABV. The dry oak notes add another enjoyable level. Great beer with a lot of character and good drinkability at the same time!

craftbeersweden (255) - SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2014
Clear, copper-red-brown beer with a lot of yeast parts in the beer. White-beige, three finger high, fluffy, head thats leaves a LOT of lacing on the glass. Almoust chunk of head left!

Nose: Butter, smoke, oak, wood, vanilla and hops.
Taste: Bread, caramel malt, dried fruit, molasses, grapefruit and oak.
Body: Medium to full body. Great bitterness.

A beatiful beer with an ABV of 7.2% that is very well hidden. Great taste and mothfeel! I recommend it!

JohnGalt1 (675) - , Idaho, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Deep amber/copper pour with a 3/4 inch long lasting light tan head.. great lacing. Big bitter smell and pine/citrus polished off with freshly sanded wood ... toasted malts and fresh biscuits. Taste is BIG. BITTER with enough sweetness to balance nicely. There is a looong finish here. Creamy cocoa, vanilla, harsh pine needles and grapefruit bitterness, just simply a thick thick thick palate ... sooo many things going on here ... when said and done, a dry piney/lip smacking woodiness sticks around for ages.

hansongreg89 (10) - CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
Appears a dark garnet hue and makes a thick creamy offwhite head. The in-your-face chinook hops that are present in regular arrogant bastard ale are nearly gone here and replaced with a very smooth oaky/vanilla. Flavor is very round about the most well balanced I have ever seen from a Stone product. The elements of the chinook hops are again subdued by a velvety layering of vanilla. This is very rich. Medium to full body on the palate with a very creamy finish. I really wish this were a regular offering, it is incredible.
