12oz Bottle pours out a hazy amber/brown topped with a great off white head. A very nice and sweet aroma. Tast of candy and I could pick up a little wood. Very nice.

12 oz bottle from a craptastic local liquor store. Searching for gems in gutter, I found a 6-pack of oaked arrogant bastard, which I read about, but have never seen before in San Diego. I remember first moving to San Diego staring at the oaked arrogant bastard, which was only available in 3 liter bottles for $55. I was eager to try this when I saw it at Stoneís anniversary party. It was good, but didnít live up to my expectations. I wasnít rating at that time. Much time has passed and I get to try it again. Pours with a 1/2 finger head in my tulip glass that dies quickly to never reappear. The oak is really apparent in the aroma, and is very nice. Iím not sure how old this bottle is, but I donít get much more than oak. the color is a cloudy brown amber. Thick body, and bit a dry. Hops overwhelms everything else, in the true style of the arrogant bastard, but I think a different choice of hops would be better, a bit medicinal.

Cloudy brown body with foamy light brown head. Cereal grains, toffee, and subtle oak in the nose. Perhaps my nose is deceiving me, but there might be the faintest hint of hops in there as well. Wow, toffee on the initial palate which bursts into a super hoppy mid palate and a vanilla oak finish.

Much thanks to Brewfiend for sparing me the dissapointment of having to open my lone bottle of this. Pours a very thick murkybrownish amber, with a tiny tan head. Nice toffee, oaky buttery sweetness with a nice vanilla edge. An assault of flavor, and the floral hops appear out of nowhere on the mid-palate. Nice toffe sweet malt, as well as a deep buttery oaky silkyness. I canít get over the hops though, they just appear out of nowhere. This is fantastic!

Red muddled mess of translucence pour into my class with a reasonably off white head. The oak notes are immediately detectable. The flavor is overpowering and a bit more malty than the typical bastard. Well balanced, crisp finish...great beer.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2007
12oz bottle. dark brown with a moderate sized tan head. Grapefruit hop aroma is prominent, with alcohol, vanilla and wood character playing second string. Smooth body. Flavor is bitter, as expected, but the oak character is not present to the degree that i would expect. Resinous hop finish, with perhaps a bit of wood and vanilla continuing to the long lasting aftertaste. Not bad, but not as good as i expected.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale Łber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2007
muddled orange and brown. aromas of sweet malt, honey and orange. flavor is complex and robust. thereís definitely honey/malt and orange kinda like sugar smacks cereal...rather rich mouth feel and a nice hoppy spice finish. in between the regular ab and the double, but better than both.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Poured a cloudy brown/amber color with no head. Mild malty smoked wood aroma. Some caramel notes as well as some dark fruit, possibly black raspberries. Very smooth mouth feel. The hops came through on the taste much more than the aroma. There was also notes of the malt, oak, and a smoky undertone that didnít overpower it. Awesome beer, one that I would love to have again.

Pours brown with creamy tan head. Aroma of caramel malt and fruit. Taste was of sweet caramel with hints of fruit throughout. Sweet brew.
