Bottle from Total Wine. A brown and ruby brew with a tan head. Good aroma...at first just grapefruit but then I got an intantly recognizable burst of vanilla and caramel. Flavor has a sweet start, hoppy and rather generic in the middle but a definite long lasting oaked toward the end. Would have preferred more flavor complexity but do enjoy the addition of the oak flavor in the end.

Blech! We had heard so much about Arrogant Bastard, and we were excited to try this special Oaked version of it. We did not like it at all. We bought a six pack and shared it between four people...we still have three of the six beers in our fridge.

Bottle poured into snifter. Color is a deep red amber with a thin white head that lingers and leaves soapy lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel, malt, vanilla, hops. Flavor is both bitter and sweet with caramel, vanilla, hops and more hops. Slick mouthfeel. Finish is very long and bitter with subtle vanilla. Pretty good but I imagine a long-term aged one would be even better.

Right off the bat, the oak aroma rolls in with the base layer of the standard, slightly bitter arrogant bastard ale. Dark red pour, subtle ruby coming in when held up to the light. The taste is absolutely perfect. Subtle, but unmistakeable oak blends in with the standard Arrogant Bastard taste. Perfectly balanced. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Dark tan bubble head, very malty sweet aroma. Very hoppy and oaky. Medium brown beer has bigtime lacing on the lgass. Loooong hoppy aftertaste.

Poured a dark bronze color from 750ml bottle. Could immediately smell the hints of oak in this one. Really like the mixture of oak and hops in this beer, although I don’t think large price tag for six packs ($17-$18) is warranted. I didn’t buy this one, but if I could find it in a bomber I would buy it.

pours an amber color with a thin head that disappears fairly quickly. flavor is a bit lighter that regular arrogant bastard with a pleasant oak taste

Dark amber ale; sweet, grapefruit-oak aroma; heavy hop flavor, with caramel sweetness underneath; finish is bitter hop with very slight caramel (or molasses?); pleasant overall, but not as finished as I’d hoped.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a two-finger, creamy, beige head; nice lacing. Huge aromas of raisin, wine, and caramelization. Flavor is a delicate balance between malts and piney, resinous hops and a hint of alcohol; the hops become more assertive as the beer exits the palate. The oak presence is there, but extremely subtle at lower temps, serving primarily to round out the primary flavors and add a smoothness to the mouthfeel. As the beer warms into the 50s that familiar vanilla quality becomes apparent. Medium to full body and a long, hoppy finish. Excellent beer.

On tap at the Brewery... it was a little darker than the standed ABA, and had a nice and subtle sweet taste on the tounge. The oak seemed to take away the slight alcohol burn that the regular ABA has... very good brew
