Lukcy Basartd is a dry-hopped meeting-of-the-Bastards in a in-the-fermenter-blend of Arrogant Bastard Ale and Double Bastard Ale…with a perfect balance of the essence of OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale. All in all, one awesome Bastard.

Lukcy Basartd Ale will be released in November and should be available in many of the enlightened locations where the liquid Arrogance is typically found.

This is a ‘once only’ special release commemorating the 13 year anniversary of when Arrogant Bastard Ale was first released upon the unsuspecting public. That is, ‘once only’ unless we decide to make it again.

Bottle - Sweet caramel, light pine and orange hops and a touch of oak. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Light spicy oak, caramel and earthy pine hops. I wanted this to be great, but it wast just good.

Medium retention and medium lacing. Smells of raisin, dates and boozy goodness. Tastes of dates, figs, raisins and booze. Boozy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LearninBeer (391) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2014
The aroma is malty with hints of hops. Caramel, some raisin, dates and a hint of spruce hops. Pours a brown amber with a big light brown head, mostly diminishing, with excellent lacing. The taste is not sweet, not sour a touch bitter most be umami. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good!

Petkus331 (276) - Redford, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Dark fruit aroma of brambles, cigar smoke, and applejuice. Dark copper, nice foam and lace. A very balanced sour, sweet, and bitter ale. Thick, creamy texture. Overall, a great malty beer.

Tap. Dark amber. Scattered lace. Nose of sweet caramel malt. Smooth body. Nothing outstandingly unique or splid, but nice malt and hop balance for a good, solid beer.

Stone Lukcy Basartd has a medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, rust-red appearance, and a nice lace curtain left on the glass. The aroma is rather bursting, and one picks up strong, but not piney, hop resin, brown, syrupy malt, and sweetness. Taste is the same, and the bitterness balances the sweetness quite well. Mouthfeel is medium, and Lukcy Basartd finishes semi-dry and easy drinking. RJT

mcclainc50 (204) - New York, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours a dark amber color with an off white head leaving a little lacing. Nice malty aroma. Nice malty flavor up front with a bit of hoppiness in the middle. Little aftertaste of smooth maltiness.

puboflyons (2220) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2014
From the 650 ml. bottle with a drink by Jan 1, 2015 date. Handsome reddish brown pour with long lasting cream colored head and some lacing. The aroma is of baked malts, orange peel, dark fruit, cedar and earth. The body is medium to full and carbonated. The vibrant earthy bitter hop character expresses itself louder than anything else in the taste. More so than the aroma. Sweetish caramel and toffee malts under it all. Lingering finish.

chucklemation (561) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a dark mahogany with a foamy white head. Aroma is pine, caramel, and resin. Flavor is sweet pine, oak, and resin. Bitterness is medium to high, not quite as bitter as their other "Bastard" ales. Has a full body. Very tasty.

bigguns22 (709) - Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2014
So so good. Pour is deep mahogany with a medium cream colored head. Almost a perfectly clear beer that reflects like a mirror. Aroma is a good mix of hops and malts with nice pine under tone. Creamy beer that sticks to the tongue and makes the flavors linger for extra enjoyment. Mostly hops but still has a malty sweetness that balances the bitter.
