COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle on the hotel patio, SD, from Liberty Station 14/11/14. Rich amber/chestnut brown with a decent light beige covering. Nose is sweet, candied fruit peel, orange peel, pine, toffee, toasted brown sugars. Taste comprises cantaloupe melon, pine needles, candied orange peel, light spice, bitter red grapefruit. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with sweet licks and a touch of warming alcohol. Solid hoppy strong.

beer-yum (586) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 2, 2014
Another fine brew from the folks at Stone. Alluring aroma is backed up by the perfectly balanced full bodied flavour. Only problem is that it is too strong to drink in the quantities one would want.

ajnepple (2537) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2014
22 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Amber-brown and pretty clear appearance with lingering, fluffy tan head and thick lacing. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, caramel malts, citrus fruits, floral and earthy notes. Similar flavor, heavy to harsh hop bitterness with light malt sweetness. Medium body with ample carbonation and a bitter, dry finish. Scroll Past!

Bottle, dark amber. Decent creamy head. Aroma of malt, spruce, citrus. Flavor is caramel, spruce, lemon, vanilla, citrus rind bitter. Finish is bitter hops dry. Palate is rich and smooth, carbonation adequate, perfect actually. Overall a juicy quality, with some sweetness, followed by a dry finish.

FestDecBeet (227) - - NOV 29, 2014
Look: pours a dark Amber almost red. Off light brown head. Very clear. Smell: very sweet caramel or toffee. Vanilla. Alcohol. Taste: alcohol. Vanilla. Sweat caramel. Oak, woodiness. Feel: slight dryness to the finish. Medium carbonation. Overall: too much oak aged for me. Would love to see more double bastard in the burns. First drank: home 11/29/14

hfmejias (807) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bomber. Poured dark copper, clear, decent off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus fruit and alcohol combined with some malty notes. Bitter and hoppy but well balanced with a nice malty and caramel backbone. Great tasting beer, extremely enjoyable.

12 oz draft in a sniffer. Appearance is dark amber with light, foamy head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, and oak. Taste is similar with tons of malt sweetness, caramel, oak wood, and toffee with only slight bitterness. Palate is full-bodied, but smooth and soft in the mouth, dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
