Poured this one from a Magnum. The Bastard Wood. Would you? reads the huge bottle.
The appearance was not much differrent than the standard bastard. Dark reddish brown with a nice head that laced the glass.
The smell was hoppy with a hint of oak.
The taste was far smoother than the regular Bastard. Huge citrus hops are noticable fading to oak at the end. Smooth and complex. Pretty incredible. The mouthfeel was smooth, and the drinkabiliity was superb.
I prefer this one to the regular Bastard. It takes it to a whole new level, and it's great. Awesome stuff.
Serving type: growler

Good take on arrogant bastard. Oak is very present - slight vanilla, very oaky, woody, some dry tobacco, dry oak - the hops are much faded, get some of the malt coming through. Some char, more tobacco, neutralizing oak dryness.
This is a much more calm version of arrogant bastard - a nice take, but I wish the hops were more present.
