Poured a rich brown amber color with a huge cream colored head that stayed for a while. Smell was very sweet of caramel with an almost a bourbon or whiskey smell to it. The taste was very intresting. Very crisp with a slight touch of alcohol. Sweet caramel malts and a bit of a wooden hop back. This is a very complex beer, I don't think I could begin to explain the taste and do it justice. Very very good, only wish I could get more of it around here! (453 characters)

Looked frickin' amazing pouring out of the bottle, somewhere between motor oil and liquid velvet. A huge dirty-white head sits on top of a cloudy, rusty, burnt-orange. Catacombs of lace web the glass.

HUGE aroma! Candy sugar sweetness meets juicy hops madness meets monster malts, with a woodiness far back in the deeps.

Flavor is as expected, a woodier, earthier version of Arrogant Bastard. Juicy caramel maltiness, grapefruit-rind hops in abundance, a sweet edge not unlike a barleywine, and a toasty, warming woodiness thanks to those oak chips. Luckily the oak chips don't dominate the flavor, but bring a new spin to an old(ish) favorite.

Feels awesome in the mouth, as most Stone beers do. Hangs in there with a creamy, kind of chewy, never too-thick presence. Finishes especially woody.

I don't think this is better than the regular Arrogant Bastard, but it's close. I like the wild, untamed, exciting feel of the AB. The Oaked AB seems a mellower, more polite take on it. Would be fun to drink side by side to compare/contrast.

Mad metal props to msubulldog25 for this bottle. (1,091 characters)

Clear semitransparent bronze and ruby body with good carbonation. Tan creamy, with small bubbles regularly dispersed, pillowy head. Great retention and clumpy lace.
Scent is spiced hoppy caramel malty goodness with a hint of wooden vanilla.
Excellent taste of caramel, hops, spice and a little bit of molasses.
Oaked flavors come through faintly but certainly there in bittering somewhat sweet notes. Aftertaste is lingering nicely and is mouth wateringly hoppy with a pine kick.
Moderate body and slightly dry with little coating.
Highly drinkable and a brew I wish I could find here.
Thanks to Weeare138 for the bottle.

bennetj17 , squidswilbsquids , zrbrrt - Many thanks for a bottle of this fine frosty.

One of the true hard to get great brews (for me).

Just looky at that pour, a hazy dark amber oak, topped by a tan pillow that just laces the entire glass.

Woody, spicey and dry in the quaff. Only 7.2%, but it actually has the body of a heavy hitter. The oak really dries out and puts a bite into the finish.

Solid brew – the regular is just as good and preferable, and the double is better than the oaked (IMO). (510 characters)

This is a mildly hazed reddish brown colored beer with a good tan head that is bordering on light brown.

Smell is very herbal and hoppy to the nose. The malt here comes through as mostly caramel and biscuit. I can smell a bit of oak here but this is still very much a highly hopped ale.

Taste begins neural and a bit bitter but it is toned down a bit from the regular arrogant bastard. I can easily taste the oak influence here and it does seem to have added some toffee, vanilla and dryness to the beer. Strangely the oak seems to have added or make detectable a slight metallic taste in this beer.

Mouthfeel is good.

Drinkability is fine but I really think I prefer the regular version better. (707 characters)

Poured into a pint glass, this beer had a better than average foamy tan head for a bottled beer, and it maintained it very well. Once it subsided, there was very good lacing throughout the beer. Not much of an aroma at all, which was disappointing. I had anticipated some oak tones based on the style, but all I really picked up was a musty hop smell.

A very interesting taste, and difficult to define. The presence of oak and wood notes is present along with a sharp, bitter hop flavor. There's also a smokey sweetness to it, not unlike a subtle chocolate or roasted citric flavor, but this is short lived as the beer finishes dry and astringent.

I am very impressed with this beer. It is strong and complex; definitely worth another sample. Next time, I'll have to get a traditional Arrogant Bastard and compare the two. (828 characters)

Served from a 12 oz bottle into an Arrogant Bastard pint glass. 12 oz bottle? For a Stone beer? Insanity.

Pours an opaque dark mahogany with a slight amount of tan head.

The nose is fairly sweet, with notes of caramel, vanilla, and malt.

The first thing you notice in the taste is the slightly sweet caramel flavor... all malt to begin with, with a nice oaky undertone, followed by a full on vanilla rush, then a hoppy bitter ending, with a sweetish aftertaste. The taste is extremely smooth, and it seems like the extremely bitter aspect of regular AB has been toned down by the oak without losing its extremely complex character; in fact it has definitely been added to.

The mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is high -- higher than the typically over-the-top-bitter Stone brew, and higher than the abv. might suggest. It is also a plus that this, unlike regular AB, comes in 12 oz bottles.

I am going to go ahead and make a controversial statement: that Oaked Arrogant Bastard is the Arrogant Bastard to try. Oaked smooths out much of the bitterness of AB while adding greatly to the flavor, and not diminishing the character, but rather augmenting it. Basically, this is the finest Stone ale there is, and OAB is probably the finest strong ale period. Highly recommended. (1,293 characters)

Finally a bottle that is convenient in size! Thanks to Orfeu.

Appearance: Very dark maroon in color, fluffy tan head on the pour fills up the snifter.

Smell: Hoppy and very earthy. The oak is more subtle than I would've expected, but is still evident.

Taste: Much more mellow than I was expecting. It seems that the oak aging took the edge off the hops more than anything, making a much smoother offering than the original AB. The woodiness does add character, and it is still very flavorful, but not over the top. Also has a tart flavor on the backside that I am not a big fan of.

Drinkability: Tasty and unique, I am glad I finally obtained a bottle of this. (672 characters)

Pours a dark brownish red that reveals a blood red glow when intense light passes through. Head is small and leaves a little lacing.

What a wonderful nose! I'm picking up dark cherries, chocolate, and a little ethanol.

Taste does not follow the smell. There is a pretty strong malt foreground that mostly comes through as roasted caramel and a little vanilla. The hop finish is strong with notes of pine and a faint woodsy taste. Aftertaste is pleasant and bitter inviting you to have more. Alcohol is present and very warming. Yummy.

Mouthfeel is pretty heavy and creamy, letting you enjoy the flavors to the fullest.

Man I wish I had some more of these. A little tamer a smoother than its non-oaked brother which is quite nice. At $2.50 a bottle and limited availability this is unfortunatley a brew that I will only be able to have a little of once a year. Bottoms up! (883 characters)

A: Ruddy red color witha small head of red/tan foam. Lower carbonation. No lace. Pretty clear through the glass.

S: Dense notes of vanilla bean and rich, heavy caramel malt. A woody note is present, likely due to the oak (duh).

T: Notes of whisky, grain, alcohol, wood and wine like fruitiness. Kind of sour. No vanilla note or sweetness as hinted at in the aroma. Not my bag.

M: Light. Slightly sour and a lower level of carbonation. Dry finish reminds me of a red wine.

D: Not for me. Maybe i'm not "ready" for it. Don't know if I ever will be. This highly touted beer falls way flat in my book. When I think American Strong, this isn't what i'd like to imagine. I just don't care for this one. (708 characters)

Time in a bottle, or barral. Whatever time in or with the oak does this Arrogant some good. Drinkability is much easier and pleasing than the flagship brew. And thisone came in the 12 oz. bottle x six. Very nice. I was never able to get the three liter.

It poured a top quality rusty amber that sat below a well maintained tan head head. Lace was fair.

The aroma was oak, pine malts and and citric hop.

The taste; though abit more tame, was complex at that. Citric hop coated with a wood-like smoke flavor. Hints of vanilla and sweetened grapefruit. Earthy notes but oh so very smooth. The mouth is left with a hint of hop oil.

Very well done! (655 characters)

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance is a cloudy auburn brown with coppery highlights, slight reddish tinge. Full finger of foamy head slowly passe to a ample sticky lacing with a hazy, thin cap. Aroma is hoppiness right up front, sweet caramelly malt undertones with a slight smoky woodiness, light notes of warming alcohol present as well. Taste starts off with sweet malts/ grapefruity and grassy hops, wood notes round off with the slight alcohol and dark fruitiness. Leaves a slightly bitter and drying aftertaste. Mouthfeel is full bodied and thick, almost a chewy beer, slick and viscous on the tongue that has a moderate level of carbonation which adds a lighter touch to the mouthfeel. Drinkability is excellent, taste is great and has been executed wonderfully by the good folks at Stone. Another level of definition and complexity to an already excellent beer, the oak has calmed and smoothed an aggressive beer into a more enjoyable aggressive beer. Would highly recommend, will purchase again. (1,026 characters)

DrJay rocks. even though he has left the toronto area, he still helps hook us up with some great beer. bringing bottles for tasting when he's in town, trading bottles when he passes through. when we couldn't get our hands on the double bastard and oaked arrogant bastard, he picked up a bunch for us. last year we split one of the big 3L swingtops of oaked arrogant bastard on new years eve, this year i'm cracking the first 12oz of this year's batch.

pours a slightly hazy brown with a thin film of very fine tan head. clings to the sides and leaves tons of lace.

aroma is great. tons of vanilla. toffee sweetness. bit of alcohol. bit of grapefruit behind this.

taste is nice. good bitterness level. lots of oak. toffee sweetness. grapefruit. bit of pine. some alcohol. bit warm on the way down. bit of vanilla.

mouthfeel is good. decent body and moderate very fine carbonation.

drinkability is good. tasty and somewhat balanced, but not nearly as well as the hopslam i had earlier. (998 characters)

12oz. bottled on Nov. 10, 06. Poured in my glass dark amber color with a large off white head that sticks to the glass leaving lots of lacing. Smells of fresh floral hops and musk wood scents leave my mouth watering. Taste is amazingly smooth with lots of fresh grassy hops and nice blend of semi sweet malts. Mouth feel is just right not to thin or carbonated. This beer has some strong flavors but is still mellow at the same time. This is by far the best in the Arrogant Bastard line up. (490 characters)

12oz bottle -> pilsner

Pours a hazed dark chestnut brown with an off white pillowy head that leaves sheets of lace. Carbonation appears robust. A fine looking brew.

Nose: Sweet citrus fruits of oranges and grapefruit, with hints of vanilla, and caramel malts.

Hops are prelavant with the citrus hops only slighted subdued with a thin malt backing. Citrus, oily and bitter on the finish with a slight smokey oak tinge.

The mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Very good carbonation and a smooth ride.

Dangerously drinkable as alcohol is all but forgotten, but considerabley out of my price range for sessions, instead a tastey treat for special occasions. (672 characters)

a - dark brown color, pretty hazy, medium tan head with retention around the edges and good lacing

s - big citrusy hop character with a good measure of roasted maltiness, hints of oak are present as well

t - much like the aroma, great balance of citrusy and piney hops with roasted malt, oak is more noticeable in the taste than in the nose, big vanilla flavor on the finish, much smoother than the original AB, very complex with great subtleties

m - medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish

d - very drinkable, I love regular AB as a drinkable beer, and Oaked is quite a bit smoother and easier on the palate

I loved regular AB and Double Bastard, so I was pretty sure Oaked was going to be great - I wasn't disappointed. Wonderfully complex beer that I wish I could get more readily. Cheers again to the folks at Stone! (841 characters)

From the tap at the stone brewery into a tulip/flute hybrid. It was a hazy golden brown with nice off-white fluffy head. Left good lacing.

I cannot say anything bad about this beer. I like the Arrogant Bastard, but the oaked version is just as flavorful, but smoother, and the flavors are more rounded out. Instead of having a large separation between the hops and the malt in the Arrogant, the oaked has a very nice melding of these two characteristics, while the hops are just as pungent, aromatic and flavorful. (517 characters)

Beautiful dark caramel, deep amber color. Dark frothy head like John Belushi's urine on his final lost weekend. Piney, citrusy, bready aroma with hints of cheese formed by large sweaty italian
hands. Taste of slight smoke and grapefruit with mint and vanilla. woody, bitter finish, but not unpleasant. I could drink a lot of these (331 characters)

12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Starts with a finger of brown head that slowly receders to a ring around the glass. Beautiful lacing surrounds the glass as you drink it. The beer itself is a cloudy ruby red.

Smell: The initial smell is of strong hops and malts. A oaked smell comes through the strong aroma. Could be a bit stronger in smell though.

Taste: There is a very strong complex taste to this beer that only gets better as you drink it. Besides the obvious strong malts and hops, the oak taste is present but not overwhelming. Overall, great but powerful taste.

Mouthfeel: This is hands down the best mouthfeel I'd gotten from a beer so far. It's got great carbonation and just a silky smooth finish that makes you want to drink more.

Drinkability: When I first started drinking this, I didn't think I would be able to drink more then one but the more I drink of this, the more I think I could drink a couple.

This is overall just a great beer. I can't wait to buy some more and keep it in my fridge. (1,054 characters)

Poured out a nice chocolaty brown with an orange hue, crowned by a bubbly, chunky light tan head, incredible lacing. The nose offers immediate hops, big, green, and citrusy. Lots of grapefruit, some subtle orange, all rounded out by woody oakness. The taste is like fresh squeezed orange juice for a second, then goes grapefruit on you. The hops and bitterness are pretty big, there must be some malt pulling it all back, but I don't really get it above all the citrus pith and the oak that hovers over the palate. There's even a flutter of strawberry bubble gum for a second. The finish is long, fruity, and bitter. The mouthfeel is dead on, good carbonation and smooth, slightly slick and oily on the finish. The downfall might be the drinkability, so much hops, so much oak. One is a lovely visit. More would be uncomfortable. (829 characters)

Clear crimson coloring, edging on darker maroonish, but a full, lush, creamy-toned head, leaving lace. I like it.

Aroma: cherries, whiskey, vanilla, berries, cognac, luscious and lovely. Wide open, deep, complex, mature, and heavenly.

Taste: vanilla jumps up first, smothers the palate with the flavor of that sweet bean, fruit flavors join in as well, but vanilla maintains it's dominance. Yums.

Medium mouthfeel, body, smooth, tasty, ...almost too smooth. But so delicious. If, maybe, too much vanilla. I like other things that arise from the flavors of various oak barrels.
Wait. Oak chips? Oak...chips? No barrells? Hmmm...
Tasty, delicious, ...I like it, but not as much as the Original A.B. So, sue me. (720 characters)

Pours dark caramel color with a small wisp of light tan foam on top which holds very well as I consume this beer slowly and let it warm.

The nose is a strong malt and barleysugar upfront with some hints of vanilla sweetness also noticed. Slight woody aroma also present. Very nice.

The taste is very bold and assertive malt with I would guess a decent amount of hops as it does taste fairly balanced. I couldnt guess what kind of hops are used here as the oak is also quite apparent and kind of takes over after initially tasting.

Mouthfeel is a pleasant coating feel with some nice quenching aspects to it. Very drinkable especially considering the abv of 7.2%. A very nice beer. I have tried this at fests on draught before and I have to say that the bottled version holds up quite well to the draft. (812 characters)

A ton of thanks to Akorsak for hooking me up with this beer in a trade. Now unfortunately I have been bitten by the bug of its greatness. I am hooked and I want more. So whether I should thank you or curse you is undecided friend.;-) You did only give me what I asked for so the burden of consequence lies on me and the gratitude owed is all yours Adam. =)

Appearance: Pours a deep copper ruby brown color with a thick just off-white head and lots of lacing.

Smell: Rich dark aroma of wood, sap, caramel or maple, raisins, papaya, vanilla, gentle fruity but assertive hops and hints of alcohol.

Taste: In a beer already as fantastic as Arrogant bastard it comes to question why oak age? I think the flavor is not drastically altered but the rough edges are smooth and one dimension to an already complex beer is added. Wood. And it is delicious and now even more drinkable. Along with the citrus grapefruit pine hop character and the malty caramel and dark fruit attribute, is a delightful vanilla bourbon flavor that finishes of with a hint of wood and sublime dryness that is amazing.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is what stood out to me the most in this version of Arrogant Bastard. The beer seems perfectly condition with extremely fine carbonation and then the hops give a velvety soft texture that is impeccable and sensuous.

Drinkability: After each sip my entire range of sense begin to call for more. It is so do drinkable that the dryness left on my plate beckons for more. Then as the sweet caramel malt and dry wood tones seep back out on to my cheeks, my palate begs for more. And by the time my taste buds taste the full effect of the long lingering aftertaste, my taste buds are *demanding* more of this beer NOW! I was fortunate enough to receive two bottles in trade but I must own a case as soon as possible!!

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers! (1,872 characters)

My Oaked Bastard was in one of those little 12 oz. bottles and not the cool 3 Liter bottle. The bottle artwork was like all of Stone's labels, silk-screened on the bottle. The front artwork is almost exactly as the regular Arrogant Bastard bottle. The differences are that to the left of the Grinning Stone Gargoyle in big red letters is the word "Oaked" and below the name of the beer in small letters is "Made with American Oak Wood Chips." On that back is the usual Stone "I can describe this beer in 2,000 words" novel. If you got the free time I suggest you read it. Basically you take the regular Arrogant Bastard label and toss in the word Oaked here and there and you got this label's artwork. There is an Enjoy By date stamped onto the front of the bottle, but you really need to look for it. You can miss it very easily. The date on this bottle wasn't stamped very hard, but I somehow managed to read it. Mine was to be Enjoyed by January 18, 2007.

Appearance: When poured into a simple Snifter, the beer was a burgundy/oak brown color with just the slightest head of white almost tan colored foam on it. It looked like the beer couldn't decide on what the head of foam's color was going to be. As soon as the head of foam appeared, it dissipated away just as fast. It did however leave some white/tan rings and a trace amount of lace around the glass.

Smell: It wasn't as aromatic as I thought it would be. I thought this beer was going to burst with powerful citrus hops and with oak chips behind it. Instead I thought the aroma was quite mild. The dominate aroma of bitter citrus hops intensity was subdued by oak chips, toasted malts, caramel, a touch of vanilla, and a few pine needles at the end. Swirling it around the glass only helps a little bit to bring a little more of the aroma out. There was plenty of stuff in the aroma, but like I said before, it just lacks the intensity to bring all of these aromas out.

Taste: This is more like it! The intensity that was lacking in the aroma can be found in the Taste. That is where it was hiding all this time. The bitter citrus hops gives way to the vanilla, oak chips, grapefruit, toasted malts, caramel, alcohol, and a few pine needles. It wouldn't be the Christmas season without some pine needles in there somewhere. After all of that, the citrus hops decide that they want to come back because they felt they were being left out. If there is one flavor that was an Arrogant Bastard, it would definitely have to be the citrus hops. They can't get enough of themselves.

Mouthfeel: I would have to say that even at a 7.2% ABV, it was full-bodied with little carbonation. There was no shortage of flavor in the aftertaste. Those Arrogant citrus hops don't want to stop beating the hell out of your tastebuds. It will take a lot of water or food to get that flavor out of your mouth.

Drinkablity: Like all of the other Stone Brewing beers I've had, this one didn't really disappoint, except for the appearance and smell. You really need to taste this beer to truly appreciate it. If you like the regular Arrogant Bastard and biting in big oak trees at the same time (I don't know how or want to know how), then you absolutely adore this beer. (3,224 characters)

Finally managed to track down a six-pack of this, and boy was it worth it.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful burgundy with amber and red notes. Head pours fairly thick at first, about 3 finger, settling to a very pleasing tan half-finger head. Lacing is beautiful and cascades evenly down the sides of the glass.

Smell: Amazing. A buttery cream aroma seems the most initially prevalent, revealing notes of caramel, a slight oak, candied sugar, molasses, nutmeg, vanilla, banana, a little alcohol on the back end, pine and grapefruit. Simply fantastic, and truly exceptional. Like an original Arrogant that has been smoothed over with sheets of velvet.

Taste: Piney up front from the hops, a definite alcohol presence, vanilla, oak, some caramel. Wonderful, but a little less complex than the nose. The alcohol sort of cuts through many of the flavors.

Mouthfeel: Mmmm. Velvety smooth, creamy, wonderful. A truly fantastic feeling on the tongue.

Drinkability: An amazing drinking experience, and a wonderful brew. Amazing what just a litte oak can do to a beer like this. (1,081 characters)
