This is an aggressive ale Just as the description indicates. I'm afraid that the oaked aspect puts this ale out of my palate. I have had the original "Arrogant Bastard" several times and I thought often that I much preferred the original to the "oaked." While the oaked did have another layer of complexity, it was a somewhat distasteful mix in my mouth. This was still a very good beer but not as overwhelmingly tasty as the original.
Save your money and stick with the original.

One of the very few beers I give a 5 rating. Will drink this anytime, anyplace, on a daily basis. Just barely better than the non-oaked version.
