I am not going to go into heavy detail here. It has all been said. Less hoppy than the original with a wood flavour instead. VERY nice. Another outstanding Stone brew! I happened to meet them at a beer convention on Long Island, NY just before the release of the 6.6.6 last year. Very nice guys! Keep up the great work!

What can I say being a BIG fan of the standard Arrogant Bastard. This Oaked version is outstanding and I was glad I was able to get it from my local store.

Love this beer. Very tasty hoppy caramel flavor with notes of oak. Oak chips actually floating around in the brew. Amazingly well balanced.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2008 The oak flavors add a lot to this fine bastard. Now available in 6-packs - which make it a great starter - although if you go from the Oaked to the Regular Bastard you find yourself missing the tannins. The tannins just add a pleasant new complexity to an already complex ale. Good stuff, Maynard!

Bottle. Very good beer with a frothy head and cask aroma. Long flavor with a moderate bitter flavor. Very good beer with BBQ and other spicy foods.

Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale is a very clear copper ale with a fluffy, yellowish sand-colored head that leaves outstanding lacing. It has a deep, dusty, sweet and spicy aroma. There are notes of brown sugar, pine, orange peel and old barrels. It is smooth and slick; medium bodied with a light, dry finish. It is a rich and well-balanced flavor-- slightly sweet and bitter with notes of candied orange peel, pine needles, rye bread and, of course, plenty of oak that rolls in to finish the flavor. Wow. This is well worth the outrageous price!

One of the many 12oz bottles I purchased. The color is identical to arrogant bastard as is the color and quality of the head. Dark red-orange and almost brown. The smell is hoppy and very nice. I think I smell caramel also. The taste is also slightly similar to regular bastard but smoother. I am not sure if I can taste the oak but this definitely tastes awesome. The mouthfeel might be the best part; very creamy. If you like Arrogant Bastard you should definitely get your hands on this stuff (if you can). Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-16-2007 01:29:02

This ale is a beautiful deep reddish mahogany, and pours with a fairly thick tan head. Aroma is rich and hoppy with a definite smoky oak overtone. Flavor is almost indescribably delicious - mainly hoppy with malty, nutty, smoky and even sweet hints, and definitely some contribution from the oak chips. Texture is supremely smooth, and leaves a very pleasingly hoppy and smoky aftertaste. A winner!

Complexion is that of muddy rainwater. Scent is akin to potpourri. A nice bite with a deep chocolate aftertaste. Tons of hops and plumes of smokiness make this a hearty meal of a beer. The ale has the feel of bark and barley, twisted with a dollop of spice. A good dessert ale.

Pours a dark reddish amber with a foamy head. A lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is fresh with malty caramel nuttiness. The taste is very bitter up front and the finish is dry. This brew is fantastic. I love how the bottle is printed on directly. That’s arrogant!
