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.

I had this beer out of a bottle into a heavy glass mug

S: The smell is not overwhelming. You can definitely smell that distinct hop smell, as well as a caramel smell.

A: It is a dark, almost chestnut color. The head was billowing and thick

T: The taste is very complex. You get that hoppy taste, as well as a roasted taste. You also get a hint of caramel. It has a powerful aftertaste, bitter but very good.

M: The beer was mild on my palate, not too overwhelming, it was light and not too strong of a carbonation. It didn't much of a chewy feel, but left the bitter aftertaste.

Overall, this is a very good beer. I would recommend this beer and I will defintely get it again
