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.

From a growler pours a hazy reddish brown color with a medium tan head that leaves light lacing. Smells of oak, molasses, Brown sugar, pine, and citrus. Tastes of all the same things in the smell with a decent hop bite. Mouthfeel is medium to light and very chewy with a pretty good carbonation and a dry finish. This beer is amazing. Stone does a great job blending 3 beers together and its really well balanced. You can notice the dry hopping too. Wish they would brow this more than just once a year.

Dark brown. Brown sugar and molasses. Kinda hot. malty. No head. Needs more his to hide the alcohol.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle, thnx to Ed5388, cheers bro! Pours a very dark brown, murky beer with a medium sized, off white head on top that last for entire drinking experience. I finished a 22oz bomber by myself, so that lasted quite long. Aroma is incredible and hits you directly when opening the bottle. It is heavy malted, oaky and carries a lot of molasses and dark, burnt sugar with it. When I took my first sip, I was a bit dissappointed. Very harsh on the palate, big alcoholic and bitter hoppy flavours did not really suit this beer. But luckily it smoothened out became well balanced. I would call this a very hopped up barley wine. Great sipper, flavours of very dark fruit and sugars, backened by some typical West Coast hop bitterness. Finish is short to medium and lingers on being a bit bitter. Very nice, complex beer.

Dark and smokey from a 22 oz bottle this ale is smooth and satisfying. It pored with little to no head and smelled of an alder wood camp fire. Has a lasting flavor that is quite remarkable. I like it.

jsquire (3398) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2013
Deep amber color out of the bottle with a short lived beige head. Sharp pine and hop resin nose. Big malty beer with tons of bitter hop resin, pine, grapefruit juice, caramel and a really nice alcohol bloom. This is a big, chewy hoppy beer, as you would expect from Stone.

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours an opaque reddish brown. Aroma is toffee malt with some pine and alcohol. Flavor is mostly malt at the beginning, then some alcohol and finishes with a nice bitter presence, then some anise, and dried stone fruit. Very good beer.

wxman (1395) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2013
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear dark garnet color with a substantial light tan/yellow head. Aroma is dark fruit and hop flowers. Taste is robust, thick sweet roasted caramel malts, some dried dark fruit and plenty of hop bitterness adding a little citrus character. Strong American ale? Why not, but it seems to be more like a dark IIPA. Good stuff!

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours a nice looking clear amber with a fat, soapy, tan head. Head retention is better than average with some spiderwebbing around the edge of the glass. Toffee, grass, orange peel, and sweet lemon on the nose. The mouthfeel is wet, smooth, full, but lacking carbonation sting. There’s a less offensive hop presence in this concoction than is normal for Stone. In fact, it might even be described as drinkable. I note a lot of pine and a little orange. There’s some balance. But, I’m not sure with what. The finish, however, delivers that familiar Stone hop hot sensation and bitterness. Not horrible, but I’ve been duped by Stone, once again. I really want to try one that knocks my socks off.

Draft at Crunchy’s (from backlog). Dark pour with pine, dirt, hop, caramel and malt aromas. Definitely a lot going on in aroma and flavor they just didn’t blend as well as I would have liked.

Bottle. Had this for the first time exactly 1 year ago in Kalamazoo. Had never heard of it. Brought one back after visiting the Stone World Bistro in November. Then saw it locally in a liquor store. Medicinal aroma. Dark amber with floatillas. Dark chocolate malt and a nice hop finish. Really outstanding.
