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.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
Deep Ruby pour, minimal off white head. Aroma is piney hops, wet wood, sherry, some candy sweetness. Quite bitter throughout with oak, bitter orange, toasted malt, slightly herbal. Good.

luttonm (3630) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Draft at Brave Horse Tavern, Seattle. Dark caramel, thick foam. Musty deep malt aroma. Sweet, orange-citrus tinge. Vanilla and bittering. Smooth, very well balanced. Oak and alcohol. Tasty, tannic and sharp.

Cokemonkey11 (331) - - JAN 17, 2015
bottle, San Diego Airport (SAN), purchased and consumed 7 days past best-by date. Pours dark caramel, light head. Smell is distinctively malty despite high hops concentration. Delicious in its own right, but not easy drinking. Very dense, syrup-like consistency. Worth trying.

Bottle says drink by 1/1/15. Maybe too late. Decent, but prefer the originals. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamesonpatz (25) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter A - Smells woody and bitter. A little floral and funky as well. A - Has a similar look to Arrogant Bastard Ale. Reddish Brown, but a bit more murky. T - Taste is noticeably more bitter than Arrogant Bastard Ale. Definitely woody up front, then just a little bit of sweetness in the middle. The finish leaves you with a good amount of bitterness that sits in the mouth for a half minute or longer. Yummy P - Heavier body than ABA, but not too heavy. Still just as smooth. Not overly carbonated. O - An interesting variation of the Arrogant Bastard Ales. I’ve not had the Oaked ABA before, but it’s contribution to this blend is what I found to be most notably different from the original ABA. The extra hoppiness was enjoyable at first, but got to be a little overwhelming after a little while. The high bitterness clashed with the extra oaky smoothness just a bit. Nonetheless, this was a very enjoyable and intense beer! "Never turn your back on your beer."

Pours dark brown. Lots of hops in the nose. Well balanced with a bitter finish. Very nice, well rounded hoppy, strong ale!

solidfunk (6479) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Really nice beer. Pours orangish with good head and lacing. Super fresh hops on top of this. Pretty bitter finish. Soft carbonation. Lots of citrus in this, and a decent amount of malt in here. Tap.

Dark Tan with a big pillow of head. Aroma of caramel and piney hops. Big pine hop flavour on a syrupy malt body.

maxwelldeux (4268) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose smells like a bit of caramel and old hops. Taste is quite bitter and not too smooth, though with a fair amount of body.
