Chaneybr (52) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Reviewed 9-12-10. I had this on tap at Hard Times Cafe in Woodbridge, VA. I usually try this one at least once a year, but this is the first time Ive reviewed it: Ap: Dark caramel color, a bit cloudy, moderately carbonated, and about an inch worth of head. Ar: Bouquet of flowers, however, there is a bit of earthiness to it also. On second thought, is that earthiness or staleness? T: Not the most refreshing thing Ive tasted. There is a kind of unsettling, sour taste to this brew. I notice the same thing in the Sublimely Self-Righteous. The finish is nice and smooth though and this, in my opinion, is where the Oaked AB differs from the regular flagship version. P: The hoppy sourness clings to the taste buds like crazy and just lingers! I noticed quite a bit of frothy lacing. O: I always want to route for this beer (as I do many of Stones IPA and "Strong Ales"), but every time drink this brew, I notice the same unpleasantness time and time again. Im sure others with disagree and thats fine, but this beer just doesnt do it for me.

Keg Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2009, Parsons Green, London in July 2009 - Mahogany Red in colour. Aggressively hopped; citrus piney oily hops. Solid malts; roasty malty, caramel, toffee. Fruity; citrus. Smoother than the original unoaked version, i.e. rather toned down. Sweetish throughout with a bitter hoppy finish. (2009-07)

Loved this beer obviously form the rating. Oak and hop balanced aroma. Pine and oak great pair. Flavor of malt hops and oak. 33 1/3% of each. Great finish to match the favors.

DerWeg (1610) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2016
Having a Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard after Double Bastard, again enjoying it more than I thought. Has a more moderate alcohol than the powerful Double. The hops are less marlelade-y (which I loved) and more piney and grapefruit-pithy, a touch leafy. The oak wood intertwines beautifully, a real balancing act and overall more delicate than expected. Stone Box rocks! This brewer really doesnt make gimmick beers.

polo_marco (328) - milton, Vermont, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Smells of sweet malts and huge scent of the oak wood with a hint of raisen. A beautiful redish brown color with small off white head. Heaps of malt Flavor ceasing the palate then tons of bitter hops coming out. Finishing off nicely with a touch of booze and brown sugar, choppy bitter ending but very complex and enjoable. Full body brew with Juicey carbonation. Great tasting brew love all the back and forth with the sweet and bitterness. Nice work!

kerenmk (4572) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at Ran and Dales. Thanks Melody! 2013 bottle. Subtle oak and smoke, a little red fruit. Woodsy and bitter and a little dry. Dry mouthfeel and full-bodied - a little bit oxidized but good nonetheless.

Percy0103 (761) - MEXICO - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle, 660ml. A clear dark reddish beer with some sediments and a small foamy head. Deep oaked aroma of malt, spices, alcohol and firewood. Taste is bitter with a strong malt finish. Robust bodied with some carbonation and astrigency. Rich aftertaste of malt and spices with an alcoholic finish. A proper American Strong Ale.

Sdaniel90 (1071) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle, 660ml. Deep reddish with heavy sediment and a lively, frothy brown head. Rich roasted caramel and fruity aromas. Medium to robust bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet malt character with a stinging dry hoppy bitterness. Absolutely delicious, this is how beer should be.

cobaink2 (560) - seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Pours with almost no head. Dark Amber color. Tastes of rich malts. There is lots of herbal flavor in there. Lots of resin from the hops on the back end. Just a tad of oak that I can detect. Not bad but Im my opinion just a slight upgrade from the base.

ElCapitan22 (360) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Pours a dark brown color with nice lacing and has excellent head retention. Smells oaky and of bourbon. Tastes malty and of alcohol. Definite bourbon coming through. A real solid beer.
