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.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2011 Pors amber with one finger head and little lace. Nose of hops, resin and malt. taste of oak, caramel and pine. Very well balanced.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Massive caramel aroma, some toffee, big floral and citrusy hops. Deep brownish orange color with red hues. Huge pillowy long lasting head. Toffee and sugar toast sweetness, solid bitterness for balance, slight grassy notes, very rich, alcohol is warming, but not hot. Effervescent, silky rich mouth feel, full body, finishes with a soothing warm malty and bitter finish. A really well-done beer, nice strong malt character, with the hop expression just right to provide great balance.

boFNjackson (4156) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2010 Bottle... Poured a deep reddish/mahogany with a khaki head. The nose had a bit of floral hop flavors going on, dark fruits and mild malts. Tasted quite hoppy with a mild booziness. It’s been awhile since I’ve had regular Bastard so I can’t think of what to compare it to. Residual sugars, oak, and a dirty, leafy, peppery spiced hop flavor. Actually a little disappointed in this one, it’s good, but not the quality I have loved from Stone.

Dorwart (2382) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Damn, this is annoying to try and read. 0.1 point deduction for being such a pain in the ass. Decent sized light beige head of fine and dense bubbles. Lots of spruce in the aroma from the moment you pop the cap. Hops galore with some caramel malts, cinnamon and a bit of mint. Color is a cloudy dark crimson brown. Lots of hops again throughout the flavor with more spices, grapefruit rind, roasted grains and some red peanut skins. Bit pasty in the mouth. Mild alcohol presence. Lingering roasty and bitter flavor. A pretty damn good and hoppy ASA. Another winner from Stone.

abcfan (735) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours deep amber with off-white head. Bitter hop aroma, smells and tastes very similar to a barley wine. Nice caramel back bone with bitter hop finish.

TomDecapolis (4520) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle pours a mostly translucent ruby amber with a medium foamy off white almost pushing kinda tan lacing head. Aroma of a wonderful American hop nose. Fruity, floral and lightly piney. Some sweet caramel, nutty and dark fruit malts are coming through in the aroma as well. Flavor of piney and grapefruit hop notes. Fresh hop flavor and bitterness. Dark fruits, roast, caramel and nut malt coming across in the flavor as well. Aggressively bittered.

pineypower (2527) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Pours out a murky, dark ruby color with a fluffy light tan head. Aroma is heavy resiny citrus hops, oak, light vanilla and slight caramel sweetness. Taste is complex, hops are citrus and rather upfront, but mellow a bit, notes of oak, vanilla, light caramel, and some alcohol notes on the finish. Overall well done, I can pinpoint a taste of this one to each of the "Bastards" used in making it. I’d like to see how it is with some age on it.

KornDogg (534) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2010
On Draft at Bull’s Head, Lititz PA. Hop and aged barrel aroma. Dark body with thin head. Flavor starts of hoppy and piney followed by a oak barrel flavor, but not over powering. Subtle hints of caramel malts. Well balanced

deyholla (6829) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Bottle shared by Ari, thanks! Poured a clear golden amber with an off white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was a combination of pine and grains with a strong oak backing. Flavor started with grain/cereal and oak and was joined by a strong finishing pine note.

Bomber from Valley Farm. Deep amber in color. Nose is definitely Stone. Strong hops, with a solid malt backbone. Some sweetness. Some pineapple and vanilla. Rich and hoppy. Solid balance of flavors throughout. A hint of alcohol in the finish.
