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.

TheSilentSaint (98) - Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Appearance: between dark brown and red. Pours with very thin head! Smell: pines and fruits. Mouthfeel: smooth and silky with little carbonation. Leaves a bitter after taste. Taste: bitter hops, hint of cream/caramel. Not sure but I could sense a little smoky after taste. It's complex beer with interesting flavors. It definitely does taste something between IPA and porter. Interesting. I can easily call it a creamy hop! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lucky bastard indeed...... I'm sure the bastard lovers will love this every 2-3 year release and I'm happy for them. Bastard series is a unique beer that no matter how many times I try I can't get into and it goes for this variation as well. One mans trash another mans treasure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Criz (348) - - FEB 6, 2015
750ml into Spiegalu IPA glass. Pours a reddish brown with a creamy thick light tan head that’s two fingers at first and dissolves into a thin line that costs the top of the beer. Aromas of pine, slight citrus, resin, and earthy notes. Flavors of caramel, pine tar, and lemon peel. Medium carbonation, with an intense dry bitter finish.

UXO (1497) - CANADA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours clear medium amber with one finger of loose ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (5/5) Nose is caramel malt, pine (spruce?) resin, woody oak, citrus. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate to strong bitter. (7/10) Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, lingering and building bitter boozy finish. (4/5) There’s a lot going on in this complicate beast, and it’s probably feeling the effects of being a little past its best before, but still quite drinkable. Big presence, emphasized by an ABV that acts at least as big - and maybe a bit bigger - than it actually is. (17/20)

lownote (521) - Austin, Alabama, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours a pretty dark copper with little to no head from tap into a small glass. Aroma is strong hop. Some pine and flower types. Taste is a strong bitterness. Not as intense as I was expecting but really present. A fair bit of sweetness from some darker malts. The bitterness lingers. Thick lightly carbonated mouthfeel.

Emeister84 (2084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Aromas of caramel, resinous hops, candied apple candy coating, subtle booze. Clear, dark ruby, decently lasting white head. Mostly dry, bitter, strong cooked malt prominence. Full bodied, a little boozy.

Site was down yesterday (and I was not smart enough to write notes) so going off of memory. The smell and the mouth feel long after me taking a drink reminded me of pot so much, that I looked up if hops and marijuana were related. So, smell had a piney, dank like smell. It poured a dark amber with a half inch, dense creamy head. It was hop bitterness throughout on initial drinking, but as the beer warmed up, there was a caramel backed sweetness to it. I did prefer it after it warmed up a bit. Did not get any citrus from the hops. More of the pine type. Do not recall a major woodiness tasting in it. Mouth felt like it was coated afterwards. Reminded me of pot. I think it might have to do with the dry-hopped nature of the beer (as another dry hopped beer I had before gave me that same mouth feel. Overall, I really enjoyed the beer, but am not sure I would buy again due to the price. It is not great enough to buy as a treat (like I do with a Chimay Grande Reserve), and there are so many other beers I enjoy that are cheaper. That might be the biggest downfall.

Stoned99 (1240) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle shared with friends. Thanks Tristan. Aroma: woody, caramel, vanilla, alcohol. App: clear amber with minimal head. Taste and palate: light medium body, medium sweetness, slightly bitter finish. Overall: more like a red ale than a strong ale. Bottle said to drink fresh, maybe it wasn’t.

Maxbier (890) - Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Clear dark cooper brown, tan head. Looks beautiful. Aroma is citrus, pine, malty; smells like imperial IPA. Delicious pine bitter, slight sweetness of caramel slightly roasted malt. Citrusy piney herbal grassy fresh hop finish.

drank this after southern tier creme brulee so i must say it was a nice change of pace. nice amber effervescence. lacing is long lasting which i like. to me, it taste like a lighter version of the other bastards. i would expect it to have a bolder flavor but the lightness of it made if for me. another nice effort from stone
