had this at a fest. dark red pour, tan head. aroma is woody, lots of hops, nutty/caramel. flavor is a good caramel malt underside with oak note with a strong hop presence, especially in the finish. full mouthfeel. regular AB is one of my go-to beers, and this just adds to it a little. if only it was available in small bottles.

Not too different from the original (not that that’s a bad thing). I can’t say I tasted the wood, which may be a result of all the other flavors mixed in. Though it didn’t blow me away, it is a great choice and is more economically packaged than the original. This will require more research! BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 4, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper with a small short duration head. Immediate impact of hoppy bitterness under layed with a smokey earthy goodness. I could drink a bunch of these. Indeed. JustinFromAL (125) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 6, 2010
12oz Bottle. Pours a deep cloudy amber with a chunky off-white head. Hoppy aroma with some definite hardwood backing. Taste is surprisingly smooth with the hops being complemented or masked by the nice mix of cloven woodiness. Will definitely drink again! Natai (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Decent off-white head with good pacing. Light flavor and body with a slightly metallic finish. Flavor less pronounced as it warms.

Not a big fan of the og arrogant bastard(too malty).........but this was different. Was thin bodied with just the right taste of vanilla coke mixed with a small hint of nut malt and hops. Appreciate the oak way more. CP (124) - USA - FEB 13, 2008
Not a big fan of oaked AB. Little to much oaked arrogance for me. Has a big oaked alcohol taste for it being 7.2%. I have had oaked beers that are 10% and I couldn’t tell at all. Not so with this. It’s just not a very enjoyable oaked drink. I think this oaked thing is just a scam. I couldn’t tell a difference. Maybe my palate is just not arrogant enough.

Amber-red color with a big orangey head. I do prefer this variant to the regular Arrogant Bastard. It seems a bit more refined with a nice touch of the oak. Very enjoyable. jimmiec (122) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 30, 2009
12-oz bottle Marcello’s Lafayette, LA - aroma: bread, nutty (malt), maybe citrus (hop), oak,; flavor: sweet, salty, earthy, bready (malt), biiter, citrus (hop), oak; appearance: clear brown, tan head, lot of laces; mouthfeel: medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish; overall: a hard beer to describe but smooth, not harsh (high alcohol), complex beer of malts, and hops with oak aging and smoothing it as well as adding to the complexity .

Poured from tap. A dark red/brown color. Slightly hazy. Smelled of malt. Not the same level of hops as the regular Stone Arrogant. Good beer. Recommended.
