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.

Bottle @ home. Dark maroon and hazy body with a 1.5 finger tan head. Strong dark malty nose with oak and a bit of a spruce-like smell. Deep and strong malty flavor with a spruce-like flavor with a noted creamy mouthfeel. There’s also vanilla and oak from the aged portion of the beer. The bitterness of the beer is fairly intense and of a floral, bush-like flavor. Finish is pretty strong from the deep maltiness, bitterness, a little harsh, and some alcohol. Not as good as any of the individual components in my mind.

22 oz bottle. Had a lot of trouble finding this beer on rate beer... then I realized that the beer is actually not spelled the right way... Oh well. Pours a brownish copper color with a small light tan head. Smells of light citrus, a ton of hops, a bit of alcohol, and maybe some sweetness to it (could be the citrus?). Tastes fairly similar to the aroma, but man does this beer pack some punch it. It doesn’t even try to be smooth until the aftertaste, just a straight kick in the mouth. Very impressive nonetheless.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville this beer poured a very dark red-amber color with a large creamy tan head that lingered forever and produced incredible lacing. The aroma was orange, pine, grapefruit and wood. The flavor was bitter and intense pine and grapefruit - fairly harsh and boozy with light undertones of caramel and wood. The finish was long, dryish, bitter, hoppy and harsh. Medium body. Ok.

blankboy (7076) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2011
Draught at The Blue Monk, Buffalo, NY. Pours a nice deep orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, I mean it’s just hops and pretty much nothing else but I love it. Flavour’s pretty good, nice and hoppy, though not the hops I would’ve chose -- still very good though it’s a bit too boozy. Finish is very bitter and alcoholic. Average to medium bodied. Quite good but like I said, a bit too boozy to be a favourite.

sebletitje (8789) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2011
Bouteille, couleur cuivre, mousse est épaisse et beige. Au nez, je détecte de suite les notes de ’dry-hopping’ avec un arôme qui est très centré sur le houblon. En bouche, une signature Stone et californienne, bien houblonnée sur des notes de pin, de fruits notamment de pamplemousse avec en arrière une fine couche de malt grillé et de caramel, vague note de sucre brun. Réchauffant au palais, on y ressent bien l’alcool. Fini est amer et un peu simple dans sa dimension tout en restant un peu sirop collant aux lèvres. J’aurai plutôt mis la bière dans le style des doubles IPA, mais bon, c’est juste mon avis.

obxdude10 (2220) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Not the best offering in the Bastard series of beers from Stone. This one features a dark amber color with a minimal off-white head. The nose features some hops, citrus, yeast, bread and earth. The big downer of this beer is the odd, yeasty and alcoholic flavor. The balance seems a bit off. I got a lot more yeasty and earthy flavor than spicy hops.

drowland (7774) - Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2011
1/14/11. Bomber courtesy Ian! Huge hoppy aroma loaded with fresh grass and citrus. Hugely bitter flavor that lingers sweet and caramelly with an exhale of huge fresh hops. Solid!

Oh yea! Classic Stone! Really a top notch brew. Full of solid malts. Great on the way down. Served ice cold. Great flavoring, bit on the hopping.

Strykzone (6216) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Thanks Hayduke! Pour is clear dark copper brown with a decent light tan head. It never quite fades completely. Nose is grapefruit, raisins, spice, and caramel. Grapefruit tartness and bitterness are prominent throughout. They are not shy, either. Raisins, toastiness, tangerine. A fizzy feel but it is also substantial. Monsterous hops. Massive amounts of malt, too but they are over matched. Delicious, huge, and fantastic.
