Bottle into a tulip. Drink by date of 04/20.
A: Just like it's non-oaked brother, rusty brown/red, two finger tan head and solid lacing.
S: Notes of citrus hop, caramel, and a bit of wood. Impressive to get that wood in the smell.
T: Mmm. Aggressive bitter hop up front, tho not as biting as the normal. Seems the wood has mellowed that initial kick. The caramel kicks in second, with a strong oak note to it. Really a whole new world of here as the wood seems to not let this one get too sweet, perfect balancing act.
M: Incredibly smooth and drinkable, with just the slightest tacky quality. Almost like a fine scotch.
D: Arrogant Bastard is a favorite beer of mine. Oaked Arrogant Bastard is all that greatness, with a mellow calming wood sensation that I don't think is rivaled in any other oaked beer I've had. Truly remarkable.
