Arrogant Bastard Aged with oak chips.

Pours a deep maple-amber color with medium fluffy head. Well-balanced aroma of flowery hops and maple-oak-molasses malt. Nice bitter flavor with a bit of warmth from the oak and malts. The oak aging definitely adds a bit of sweetness and depth to the flavor, although the body seems slightly thinner to its unoaked counterpart.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 bottles thanks to franksnbeans and fordest
Almost thinner bodied seaming to its regular counterpart. Still reddish brown, with a somewhat muted dryly-sweet malt smell and light hops. Taste though was lighter, more muted, and much dryer and chalkier, especially in respect to the bitterness. The oak seems to have magnified the things I didn’t like about the original. Not for me.

12oz. Dark, hazier than the older sibling. Similar, frothy off-white head. A bit more bitter fruit in the nose, seems a bit more aromatic overall (but I think the last time I had the older sibling I had a cold, so who knows). Maybe a bit softer carbonation, smoother mouthfeel at any rate. I think the oak has toned down the hops a bit, has more of a malt presence and little more bitter fruit than pine. Lonnng finish/presence that I love this stuff for. Maybe more drinkable, but not quite as fun as the original. Still tasty.

BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle: There is a sweet aroma with a hint of orange. a brownish orange colour.bitter and a bit of a wood taste. Seems dry for a moment, then finishes smooth.

Absolutley delicious. Just like the regulay Bastard just a lot more smooth on the mouthfeel. I had a woody flavor to it as well. Great balance of malt and hops.

Apparently, this is a beer that shouldn’t be oak aged, I like the normal version considerably better.

nicolascage (116) - Copenhagen (Virum), DENMARK - OCT 5, 2007
12oz bottle. too much oaked taste, not heavy enough to carry that amount of oak. very malty and long lasting bitterness.

6pack of 12oz bottles from Town and Country. I haven’t seen this beer around in a while, but I also haven’t been lookin in the dank beer stores in a while. The first sip reminds me of a mellow arrogant bastard. The hops are not as harsh as the un-oaked brew. The dark malt background tastes amazing with the weaker hops and the very faint smokey oak flavs. Verynice.
