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.

ekoerper (592) - Iowa, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Nose full of malt and hops. Pours deep, cloudy, opaque amber. About a half inch of head dissipated to a thin layer, some lacing. Medium-full bodied, fairly chewy, average carbonation. Flavor is malty, caramel, toffee, and the typical wallop of hops from Stone. Very smooth and drinkable, great beer.

DocLock (8376) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bombers from Capone’s, Craft Ale, and Smith’s. Pours mahigany toward deep ruby/brown with 1-finger off-white head. Nose is huge spirits, fruity, cherry, hops, peaty oaky bourbon. Tastes oaky, spirity, with a huge resiny hop flavor, and finishing cherry cognacy flavors. Very complex, and a synergistic mix of the two bastards. Very very good.

TheHopster (899) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2011
I actually did get lucky finding this due the short supply. More complex than its Bastard cousins. Deliciously addictive to sip. Loads of flavor.

Lagunitasfan (1321) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Copper red/brown with forever latte head. Nose is sweet caramel malt and brown sugar. Sweet and malty. Taste is huge caramel bubble gum malt. Creamy goodness with sharp warming. Reminds me of the Lagunitas malt profile. And, as my moniker hints, that’s a good thing. Sharp oaky goodness in the back. Can I coin the phrase "Malt Monster"?

PhillyBeer2112 (2610) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Not very appealing brownish color, but a good firm and creamy tan head sat atop it. Very nice spicy and citric hoppy nose, possibly a hint of oak or cocoa that comes through more in the flavor, along with rounded heavy malts. Medium mouthfeel, balanced if big finish.

A reddish copper ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a wonderful hop bomb with pink grapefruits, kiki, lichee, mentol and alcohol. In mouth, a smooth biscuitty malt with c-hops, citrus, menthol and warming alcohol, well balanced. On tap at Mr. Beery’s , Jan 3 2011.
