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.

anderson01 (321) - Idaho, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Licorece, grenn apple and hops is what pops out in the aroma. This beer has an awesome appearance. Dark brown in color. Has a rocky, thick caramel -color head with lacing that holds on to the side of your glass. Bitter/sweet flavor. This beer hits the palate slightly bitter and finishes with a watermelon flavor. This beer was very enjoyable.

glennmastrange (2647) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt and hop notes of roasted, caramel and pine, moderate soap for the yeast, with background notes of date, dried cherry, wood, pepper and alcohol. Head is small, frothy, light tan, with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky, red/brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly sweet and acidic and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a lively carbonation and has a moderately alcoholic finish. Just like its parents, this is an excellent American strong Ale, through and through.

johnnnniee (3734) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 3, 2011
Pours a deep brown color with deep garnet highlights and a full inch and a half of slowly receding beige foam. Smells of citrus, resin with a solid caramel malt backbone that fights hard for a voice. Hints of mint, garlic and tropical fruit round out the nose nicely. Taste is what I’d expected from the aroma although the malt comes through a lot more than I expected. Solid caramel backbone melts into pine resin, citrus and garlic hop bitterness. Finish is rather dry but leaves a fleeting hop bitterness with a hint of alcohol on my palette after every sip. Resinous bubbly and almost creamy mouthfeel, moderate level of bubbles, medium body. Great frikin palette wrecker. Seems like the perfect beer to slowly savor after drinking at the ACBF all day.

Bomber. Pours amber with cream head. Carmel malt aroma, sweet malt on the tongue with some hops. Nice.

Palidor19 (3151) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2011
lots of malt flavor with caramel flavor but has a dark deep astringent that is oblivious associated with the hops. still the mouth feel is medium at best and the carbonated is full with not too much fizziness. good for a night cap.

nick76 (4372) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2011
The aroma is very hoppy and malty with caramel and pine. The appearance is deep hazy amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma but a bit astringent. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a quality beer but just a bit to astringent for me.

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2011
22 oz bottle hand-delivered by a friend of mine who just returned from the Stone Brewery(lucky bastard). He told me I was going to enjoy it, and he was right. Malty rich aroma. Deep copper color. Thin but efficient lacing head. Without a doubt it is from the ’bastard’ family of ales, but the character of this one is a bit more balanced than the aggressive arrogant and much more subdued than the over-the-top double bastard. I have always had a hard time describing the flavors in these beers, I just know I love them!

llcooldave (1188) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Coppery brown in color. Sweet malt aroma with some hoppy citrus notes; grapefruit. Bitter pine and citrus flavors followed by an aspirin aftertaste. Overall, interesting but not too flavorful. Just kinda bitter... Maybe I got a bad bottle. May need to try it again and rerate.

SDalkoholic (2331) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle from E street Liquor: Created a firm layer of soft refined bubbles while the liquid was a dark tea brown color with a mahogany tint. In the nose, a bold aroma of rich sweet and sticky malts and oily green hops which smell identical to the other bastard ales. The flavor is also sweet with a sweet taste of sugary caramel malts that are similar to syrup while also having a bite of bitter citrus fashioned hops. This was a nice and high quality beer that balanced well between the two original bastards.

Gachupines (1246) - USA - FEB 23, 2011
Deep brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is hops with a slight smoked maltiness. Flavor is rich, strong hops without overwhelming. Very well balanced in the finish. A little astringent aftertaste but not at all in an unpleasant way. Really enjoyed this, like an Arrogant Bastard with the intensity turned down slightly.
