doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pours murky red/brown with a very thin, offwhite head, specks of lace. Smells great. Sweet and vanilla with some booze and a hint of wood on the nose. Tastes ok. Wood and sweet oxidation with some spicy hops. Wood flavor is funky. Kind of a mess. Medium body, subdued carbonation.

Jado (779) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2016
355 ml bottle. Copper brown body with red highlights and a lasting off-white head. Aromas of dark fruit, vanilla, bourbon, and a booze note. Starts out with raisins and plums in the mouth before a firm peppery bitterness kicks in. Wood and vanilla notes round out the malty back end. Slightly sweet finish leads into a fruity aftertaste. Pretty darn good all round.

bergstaden (2458) - Rřros, NORWAY - OCT 14, 2016
Dark amber with off white head - Aroma of malt, wood and vanilla - Malt body to support a hop flavour of pine that is mellowed out by the wood and vanilla flavours - The wood and vanilla goes into the finish - The barrel makes this good, opposed to the regular bastard

Hot spice, pepper, malt, vanilla, oak. It's not bad but the spices kind of take away any barrel flavor, I could never have more than one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kingi (625) - - OCT 8, 2016
bottled 24.4.2016 - aroma is a bit of sweet malts and wood notes (hops have disappeared from the aroma with age if they existed). Clear brown colour with nice head. taste is light sweetness, medium bitterness. Finish is still a strong dry and bitter feel, medium body, average carbonation. Good beer but would have wanted a fresher bottle.

A ark, reddish brown beer, a head is medium and blond. Aroma has dark and ripe fruits, riasins, caramel, some vanilla. Taste has wood and dried fruits, caramel, quite strong bitterness which is piney and herbal. Very long end. Medium bodied. Difficult to say differencies to the basic version. Good beer.

tricksta_p (3617) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle at home, at 8.1 abv. Aroma is biscuity malt, caramel, oak, vanilla, bourbon, touch of dried fruits and piney hops. Flavour is moderate sweet and nicely bitter. Body is medium. Not as fruity and piney as regular Arrogant Bastard, but damn tasty barrel aging. Nicely bitter and very drinkable.

KW92 (1238) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 1, 2016

Data butelkowania: 12/22/15
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Mocno przypalony karmel. Bardzo niewielkie muśnięcie wręcz nuty bourbon’owej, a także zioła i cytrusy.
WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnobursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała.
SMAK: Paradoksalnie nie słody, a chmiele odgrywają tu pierwsze skrzypce (grejpfrut). Posmak gorzki alkoholowo-garbnikowy. Goryczka wysoka, zalegająca.
OGÓLNIE: Owszem leżakowanie piwa, ma urozmaicić jego smak i aromat. Ja lubię kiedy nawet nieco dominuje w aromacie. Niestety w tym przypadku leżakowanie nic specjalnego nie wnosi, a w smaku powiedziałbym nawet, że szkodzi temu piwu. Kiedy do tego wszystkiego dodamy jeszcze bardzo wygórowaną jak na to co otrzymujemy cenę, nie ma mowy o dobrej ocenie. Na otarcie łez pozostaje bardzo ładna butelka i kapsel do kolekcji.
