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.

Pours clear chestnut color with a nice frothy head. Tastes malty and hoppy with just alittle of the oakness coming through. They seem to battle for taste. Really nice over all I enjoyed quite a bit. Had from a bottle

Handypaul (267) - - JAN 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear dark amber with a medium frothy to creamy beige head that diminishes quickly to a ring and leaves some lace. Aroma of caramel, a box of new matches and soft ripened cheese. Oily malt medium sweet, medium bitter in a medium to heavy body, average carbo with fine bubbles and a extraordinarily long medium bitter finish.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Draft at Fireworks Leesburg. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Decent pine notes on the nose. More of the oak and malt on the tongue although the pine is still fairly big. Finishes clean. Hides it’s booze fairly well. Solid.

ADesenberg (662) - Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Great beer! This is probably my favorite of the "bastards". Huge sweet malt body with some fresh biting hops that just sit right on top. I wouldn’t call it balance...and I love it. It’s like they are battling each other with each sip. Truly a work of art. Delicious.

Dal9000 (214) - Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours a dark caramel with a Guinness like growing tan head. Soft malty not sweet caramel with a lingering but growing pine hop taste. The taste gradually changes from a malty taste to a hoppy taste ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Poured from a 22oz bottle dated 10/24/2014 with a drink by date of 1/1/2015 (which is today). Aroma - very nice tropical aroma. Dry hopped indeed! Appearance - Dark red color, 1 finger of creamy head - very nice. Taste - True strong ale - very good malt backbone with a great hop presence. Palate - Nice coating in the tongue, nice after taste. Overall - another great beer from Stone!

Very nice! Here’s the short review. Think Arrogant Bastard, with a wee bit less malt, and substituted with hops.

On draft at Isaacs, with Bobby Clark. Nice notes of wood and hop. Nice alcohol presence. Well done.

chinchill (2277) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at Yardhouse. Dark red-brown with a durable head that left nice patterns of lacing on the glass. Both the aroma and the flavor have depth and the flavor has admirable complexity. The aroma has pronounced caramel and vanilla notes and seems to hint that the flavor might disappoint but it does not. There are suggestions of oak, toffee, vanilla and dark fruits, but nothing to mask the solid malt base.

MadRobin (2123) - Silver Spring, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Poured from 22 oz. bottle. Clear, rusty medium brown with a 2-finger khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of floral hops, caramel, apricots, fir trees, brown sugar and oak. Taste of caramel, floral hops, citrus, evergreens, oak and toffee. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. Quite bitter overall, but with a high caramel/toffee malt presence. The hops are bright and fresh and easily slice through the huge malt base. Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
