Appearance - 4/5
Dark red-orange, about 1-2 fingers of light beige foam. Very clear, can see an average amount of carbonation rising up through the beer.

Smell - 2.5/5
Pine citrus hops, along with a slightly nasty earthy smell. Reminds me of manure or skunk or something.

Taste - 2/5
Oak, citrus (orange and grapefruit), pine hops, along with that slightly nasty flavor from the smell. Flavor is very interesting and complex, which is expected considering this is a blend of 3 different beers. But I can't get over the nasty flavor.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
Medium bodied, light ot moderate level of carbonation. Fairly creamy.

Overall - 2.75/5
I was very disappointed by this beer. It had a fairly nasty flavor which I was not expecting.

22 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 10/20/2014 printed on the bottleneck, so this is some pretty fresh bastard right here. My first time with this blended variant, expectations are pretty good.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a thick ruby-ish body, semi-clear, with about a finger and a half of thick doughy khaki head. Leaves behind lots of good thick sticky lacing. Looks nice for what it is.

S - As expected, the aroma is mostly a big citrus pine hop bomb and little else. Grapefruit, pine, resin, oranges, and notes of brown bread and sweetened caramel malt.

T - It follows the nose - lots of big bold citrus - orange, tangerine, grapefruit, & pine with lots of bitterness. Creamy and easy drinking for the big bitterness and abv, I suppose.

M - Feel is extremely bitter and dry. Medium-full bodied with low lying carbonation.

Overall, it was definitely not everything I was hoping it would be. It tasted like little else than your average Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale to my destroyed palate. Still, I am interested to try the Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale, amongst the others.
