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.

A great spin on the ever beloved Bastard series of beers. Beautiful gold caramel color with a bit of caramel on the nose and in the palate to match. Ever so slight. Mild carbonation with a full body that is yet mellow at the same time. A sweeter approach to Arrogant Bastard I would say. I also get notes of wood from it as well. Slight hints of spice along with nice earthy notes. The hop profile while Stone is still unique to this beer, they are strong but somewhat subdued for a Bastard line beer. Get this one if you can.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Strong malty flavor with a lasting finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Tap at Capones. Pours a clear deep amber with a nice thin white lasting head. Aroma is green fresh leafy hops, mint, pine, citrus, some dank notes, caramel, toast, toffee. Flavor is clean, caramel malts, medium crystal, toast, fruity, grass, pine mint and floral citrus hops- a bit one dimensional sweet malt upfront, then dries out in the end. Pretty good.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2010
August maroon body, with a hop-pocked caramel creme head. Exuberantly leafy, floral, and piny fresh hope nose. A splendid profusion of hops. Intensely raw leafy body with wreath of floral and pine entwined with some oaked alcohol unraveling beneath it. Immense bitter hop finish. Well streamlined bitter and floral accented brew.

Bottle picked up at SL... crazy label. Poured into a snifter... Dark brown in color...ok head.. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Nice hoppy aroma...but malty at the same time.... Taste is back to the stone basics...not like 101010. This is hoppy, malty and a little boozy at the same time... It doesnt remind me of the AB or the BA AB.... Smooth and easy to drink... Nice brew from stone that is worth buying again or keeping it for a later date.....

Dark mahogany ruby, creamy dense pale sandy head. Deep caramel aroma punctuated with aggressive green leafy hops. Abrasive and astringent, seems old and broken. Creaminess springs forth from the head and is washed away quickly with abundant dry leaves, and notes of oak. I am left disappointed.

On draft at R & H. Pours a clear dark coppery amber with a frosty off white head. Aroma of tangy hops, grassy notes and wild flower notes. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

Served from a 22 oz bottle from Baron’s. The appearance is a deep amber with a small off white foam had. The aromas are intense with sweet malts, cinnamon, ground tea leaves, dry hops. The flavors follow the nose really close. A full dose of sweet hops, spicy hops, spiced oak, very bitter, tea, white pepper, a bit much of a medicinal/perfumery tone, there is a nice hidden vanilla note. The mouth is medium to full bodied, a touch on the hot side with a bitter lasting after taste. Overall a pretty crazy brew. A nice mingle of the 3 and a cool way to do a special anniversary.

Tap at Pacific Coast Brewing. Pours ruddy dark dark with a slight creamy off-white or beige head. Aroma of roast malt and resin. Fullish body. strong roast malt and very stron and harsh resiny hop. Mellows out a bit with time.

Bottle shared by sloth. The pour was brown with some orangey hues, decent head. The aroma was caramel, pine, citrus. The flavor followed, pine, earthy, resinous, citrus, some caramel, and this thing wasn’t as roughly, semi-astringently bitter, as the normal AB. Acidity also reduced. A pretty nice drinker, full mouthfeel, but the ABV didn’t seem as high as the label suggested.
