bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Bottled. Pours a hazy mahogany with a lacy yellow head. Aroma of grapefruit, apricots, vanilla and wood. The body is medium, and the taste has the same notes as the aroma, but they are quickly overwhelmed by bitterness. This bastard gets a bit of wood at the finish.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
Bottle. Ruby colour with a big beige head. The aroma is of wood, almost fruity, citric hop aroma and the taste is very dusty and dry, malty, floral hop and wood. Medium body with a light vanilla and wood finish.

aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2007
bottle, not as "dark" as I expected. flavor or color. Sort of a burnt nutty flavor, with a strong citrus hop flavor. Lots of hops. Also does have a nice mellowness to it, a recognizabley oaked ale.

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2007
bottle. subtule, really subtule(sp?). I remember the bastard as a hit you upside the head beer, and this was more of a laid back beer with a really nice hop flavor. Could be the oak, or just my palate actually getting used to the amount of stuff Stone puts in the beer. Tasty, but would probably not have again.

garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 1, 2007
12oz bottle: a dark amber with an orange head. Nose of hops and citrus. Taste of wood, malt and again more hops. I too prefer the origibal or the double bastard, but still good

Ungstrup (35028) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2007
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a dark orange head. The aroma is extremely hoppy which gives it strong notes of grapefruit, but it also has strong notes of alchol. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of caramel and grapefruit, and only hints of vanilla, leading to a dry bitter end. Nice - but to me the oak notes are too subdued.

bdjames29 (273) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2007
12 oz bottle. I preferred un-oaked AB ale. Im not complaining, mind you, I just think the un-oaked had a better flavor and a better feel in the mouth. I searched for the oak flavor and aroma and was able to pick up on traces but never really got what I was looking (payed) for. Hey, its still Arrogant Bastard!

jon112981 (327) - Bristow, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Bottle. Red/brown pour with a foamy tan head. Nose of malt and oak. Oak and hop taste. More hop than oak but still a good beer.

Cobra (1100) - - DEC 31, 2006
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep amber color, with a thick foamy tan colored head. Aromas are of overpowering oak, standard malts, and some yeast in the background. I wont go into the oaked beer debate, suffice it to say that it is not a historically accurate style whatsoever. Ok to try, but they need to cut back on the oak. At least toast it first. Jeez.
