4.18/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured the first half into a pint glass and the second into a tulip.

Appearance: Dark ambery red color, decent brown head, decent lacing. First pour had very little head, so I tipped the glass less with the second

Smell: A whole bouquet of different hoppy aromas, with some roasted malt in there. Hints of citrus.

Taste: Much more complex and pleasing than regular Arrogant Bastard. Not nearly as much of a punch you in the mouth bitterness, and with that there is more flavor. Hoppy, bitter, and roasted malt is what I get initially. Hints of caramel.

Mouthfeel: Thick and pleasant, with some crisp carbonation

Drinkability: Better than Arrogant Bastard, no hesitation in finishing off the 22oz bottle, but I don't have any desire to go for another one.

I was almost disappointed with this, from my first glass. Not sure why, maybe because I got better head on the second one, but the second was a knockout for me. The first disappointed me, mostly because some of the awesome flavors and aromas seemed muted. Surprisingly, I don't pick up any oak in the flavor or aroma, which I would think there would be some due to the oaked arrogant bastard in there. Definitely is better than regular arrogant bastard, but I'm not sure if it is better than oaked or double.

3.81/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - The beer was a dark copper color with a fluffy off-white head crowning the snifter. Lacing followed the sides of the glass.

Smell - The malts dominated the smell with notes of fresh bread and banana hovering in the background.

Taste - On the initiate taste, the bitterness of chocolate and alcohol strikes me. Caramel makes a brief appearance. Oaky notes and vanilla float in toward the back, leaving a dry woody impression.

Mouthfeel -Carbonation is modest with few warming qualities despite the ABV. Clearly the alcohol is well masked.

Overall - I aged this one for quite a while and must state that I am not sure the waiting was worth it.
