On cask @ Falling Rock poured a cloudy copper with a large lasting amber head. Aromas of spice, malt, wood and yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of wood, vanilla and malt with a drt, bitter finish.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2006 Wow, had this a long time ago at El Gauchoís party. I didníy go back for more as I wasnít all that impressed. Clear amber brew with some oaken,vanilla tones. I prefer the non BA version as the flavor was more complex I think. It was a treat. The rich malts semed to be overwhelmed now. Re-rate.6 pack from Kahns. Better flavor and I am much more impressed.

I know this is deemed a great beer but it just was not my type. The oak adds an od flavor to the palate and the finish. It did have good body!

performula (148) - Heart of the Rockies, Colorado, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Pours a brown amber. Sweet oak scent. scent. Citrus backbone with a wood finish. Not what I was expecting. I remember Arrogant Bastard Ale being more tasty?

GABF 2006-Mild aroma, mostly of earthy hops with an oak backing. Taste is malty with some oak. Iím not impressed.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours brown with a generous off-white head. Aroma is largely oak notes with noticeable alcohol and the hops so evident in Arrogant Bastard greatly suppressed. The taste is oak up front with slightly-noticeable malt and hops afterward and a definite alcohol burn at the end. I like the original, but this didnít really do it for me.

MagooinPA (100) - Warminster, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12oz pour to small white head and deep brownish color. Nose of candy + oak, too much oak. This would be better if it was oak from bourbon barrels or the like. Dogfish Headís version of 90 minute soaked in bourbon barrels is awesome, this is mediocre at best. Glad I bought only one. My least favorite offering from Stone.

henrikb (1259) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle - Slightly hazy red brown body with a small beige head; Strange not to pleasant diesel oil caramel oaked not to well composed nor pleasant nose; Strange thin full body, unbalanced; Long finish with a slight alcohol bite, again a strange composition of oak and caramel, harsh: STONE makes the best of beers, but this one doesnt really hit the mark, way to strange, those damn oak chips!

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2008
A real weird one. Piney hops with sour, unripe nectarines, oak, mint and vanilla. The mouthfeel is all rasping raw wood, with vanilla flavour and vague salty and medicinal notes. Strangely obscene in some ways, but I really had no problem drinking it and would gladly do so again. I guess thereís just enough malt sweetness to balance the weird hop/wood mix. Still, Iíve gotta say I think itís an awful concept.

pours cloudy amber with thick beige head, it is actually quite pretty. the aroma is grapefruit and the flavor is fruity maltiness with a distinct bitter finish.
