JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Clear, deep mahogany/cherry color (darker than the non-oaked Bastard), off white lasting head; very inviting. Similar super strong floral/piney/citrus hop aroma to the regular Bastard, slight oak aroma which is a nice addition. Oak taste is pretty masked by the mother-loads of delicious hops, though. 12-oz bottle. Pasadena, CA, USA.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - OCT 16, 2009
it pours out ruby gold with an off white thick head. it has a dark maroon colored body with slight bubbles rising from the bottom. there is some good lacing in the glass and it takes a little while for the head to fall. the aromas i am getting is obiviously oak wood which complements the hoppy smell. a sweet malty scent is pushing through also. the taste is a sweet malty flavour with cloves, vanilla, wood, and a piny hop kick. the aftertaste starts mellow, but finishes with a great hop kick wich lingers for a good little while. great beer.

Tsotsi (178) - Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a darker amber color with a beige head. Nose is hops, sweetness and slight vanilla notes as well. Flavor is big hops, caramel, vanilla, slight wood flavors as well but not overwhelming. Nice bitter finish to it. Dont get too much of the oak on this but can tell its there. Good twist from the original.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Out of the bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a deep amber color with a tan head. Smell is deep oak as is the taste. The taste isnt my favorite, but it definitely has an oak flavor.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Deep filling and malty aroma. Deep red-brown appearance. VERY bitter start and a decisively bitter finish. More of a pleasure to drink than the original arrogant bastard but it would be difficult to drink more than one in an evening. A great beer made better by the oak chip aging.

Like the original, except not as in-your-face. Soft, almost vanilla like body brings forward the oak flavor. Not sure I like this better than the original bastard, though it is an interesting and tasty beer!

ReademNwheat (174) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2008
From a bottle. Pours dark copper with off white head. Oak aging added a little oak flavor to the brew but not anything remarkable. This is still a great brew but I dont think oak aging was needed to make this brew any better than it is regularly.

Woody improvement to a classic. Great balance. Oak chips give more complexity to this ale. Balanced hops. I prefer this to the original, yet nothing special.

udflyerfan07 (173) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2010
12oz draught at Chappys in Dayton, OH. Great amber appearance with a little cloudiness and light head. Aroma of wood, oak barrel, and burnt cinder. Tremendous oak, wood flavor going down. Really good beer. Tastes a heavier ABV then advertised. Recommended.
