Smoked oak leads the charge directly into a fastness of sweetened nut. A bitter element presides over the event. "if my favorite whiskey were turned into a beer ..."

Stone always makes nice strong hoppy ales. No exception. A delight for me, but not the faint hearted

Combo of arrogant bastard, Oaked arrogant bastard, and double bastard. I'm lukewarm to any of those three beers in their own. Together, they make a very enjoyable combo. This is a strong and hoppy beer with a lot of layers.

Arrogant Bastard, Double Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard. Perfect blend of the three. Really brings out the arrogance of all three brews.

Toasty hops. Reminds me of a brown ale mixed with an IPA.

Aroma: Smells as close to a wet hop as I've ever experienced. Underneath is the apricot/orange aroma indicative of american hops. Appearance: A clear but just slightly hazy reddish mahogany with a white a quick fading head. Taste: Despite the aroma this is not hop bomb. The initial flavor is that of candied apricots. A thicker mouthfeel promotes this sweetness. In fact there is just a small bitterness to it, very balanced with just a hint of citrus rind. The fruity experience carries into a lingering sweet aftertaste. Overall: The first thing I noticed was the malt base, very unusual for the Stone brewery. However it works well with there 13 anniversary offering. This is a very complex and fruity beer. Despite it's higher strength there is no alcohol bite. This is a great desert beer. Grab yours while it is still out.
