Here's a blend I expect some have assembled on their own. For reference: I've had and enjoy the regular Arrogant Bastard; I've had and not really enjoyed Double Bastard; I've not had Oaked Arrogant Bastard.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Maroon body, brilliantly clear pierced with crimson highlights and capped by a persistent creamy finger of beige suds. Rich velvety lacing - very faint mottled legs.

Bready with some citrus-like hops and a touch of evergreen. Light caramel malt, with a whisper of smoke.

Aggressive on the palate - deep rich malt and sharp herbaceous hops. The minty flavors are present from Double Bastard, but the dilution (and contribution of wood perhaps) tames the catty almost ammonia like flavor that DB can have. Dry finish with a touch of vanilla and wet wood. More potent than AB yet more balanced than DB - this blend works well.

Medium-bodied, somewhat creamy but with a crisp edge. Suitably carbonated.

More interesting than any of the base beers I think. Great example of the style, well worth picking up.
