This beer is really fantastic! It is smoother, cleaner, and more drinkable--just a tad less harsh--than the regular Arrogant Bastard. The color is great, the head is beautiful, too. Seriously the best beer I have ever had. For my taste, this beer is perfect!! I look forward to making this my annual Thanksgiving treat.

One of the best beers out there - Stone brews are often palate wreckers but this beer is a palate reset - especially after hoppy IPAs. Few beers can make that claim and it has something to do with the balance of hops and malt in this beer. The oaking brings a sweeter flavor to the normal AB - slightly more caramel comes through. Sweet pour; sweet head; sweet aroma. Amazing beer.
