A little background on myself: I had a hot sauce drinking accident and burned my esophagus, mouth, tongue and skin after I vomited the mixture back up. This was 13 years ago. Since then, my beer likes have turned to the more hoppier IPAs and dry hopped brews and oaked brews because of my burnt taste buds. And now, my thoughts about this beer:
The color is a hazy orange ambery in normal light. The smell was a little skunky and oaky at first (may have been and older bottle or not temperatured correctly). By the name "Oaked" Arrogant Bastard, I was expecting oak. Might just be me, but could not taste any oak; perhaps the hops used covered up the oak??? At 7.2% ABV, it drinks more like a 5.5 or 6 ABV.
Bottom line, I would buy it again when in the mood for this style. I would also be very interested in trying a "Oaked" Double Bastard if there is such a thing.
