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.

This is one complex brew. Hoppy, malty and sweet at the same time. Gotta love anything that come from the taps of Stone Brewing. ... we are still not worthy of this beer!

rangerred (916) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Poured into a snifter out of a 22oz bomber. Pours a clear ruby red with just a thin wispy head. Even with the lack of a substantial head there is very nice lacing throughout. Aroma of piny hops mixed with burnt caramel. Some maple syrup along with a healthy dose of oak. Burnt toast and rye bread round out the aroma. Really a heavy, roasty, caramely, complex aroma that is extremely inviting. The flavors continue the themes found in the aroma but on a much more intense scale. Tons of oak and pine with a healthy dose of caramel thrown in. Some burnt character and a spicyness that is reminiscent of rye. Fairly intense bitterness throughout balanced my sweetness. Mouthfeel is slick with a good amount of stickyness in the finish. Overall, this is my favorite of the Bastard line. Really so much going on here and I really love the oak character. Perfectly blended and really one to savor.

bluemooner (603) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours a dark, clear amber with a medium tan head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy with caramel malts. Flavor is toasty malt, caramel, and piney hops with a bitter hop finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Very good brew.

Served from a bottle. Dark copper color. Hoppy aroma with caramel sweetness. Hop bitterness is balanced nicely by the sweet malt.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours red-tinged brown with a soapy tan head. Aroma is caramel, hops, oak... Taste is citrus and pine over woody caramel. Nice blending, very smooth, more oak as it warms. Really good.

jandd1983 (2533) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2013
It poured a dark amber color with a small beige head. The aroma was of piney hops and some caramal malt. The taste was of caramel malt upfront with sweetness and a spicy hop aftertaste. Very well done.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2014 1/1/13 Strong hoppy aroma. Dark amber colored and cloudy with a thin head. Hoppy and bitter at first but not overpowering. Finishes smooth and dry with oaky notes. Very good. 7/4/2014 Bomber with enjoy by date of Jan. 2013 that got lost in the cellar. Whoops, but perhaps a happy mistake. Strong caramel malt and dark fruit aroma with a bit of booze. Pours cloudy amber colored with tan head and good lacing. Taste is now more like a barleywine than it was before with sweet caramel and dark fruit to start. Finishes dry with a bit of booze and a little bit of hops for a very west coast style. Interesting development as most of the hoppiness is gone and replaced with caramel and dark fruit sweetness.

This is my first bastard in such a long time that its hard for me to dissect the different bastards that are in it. It does have an aggressive hop smell and palate. The rest I'm thinking in some other bastard in my mouth. Very enjoyable though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Goooood stuff here ladies and gents. I’ve looked for this one for quite some time and just couldn’t find it. Aroma is heavy on citrus and pine trees with a smooth oak and caramel backbone. Intense aroma. Very powerful yet balanced. Poured a deep bronze color with a foamy white head - great retention. Flavor is pretty similar with a very heavy citrus and pine sap flavor from the hops. As it warms, the caramel and oak come out more with some light vanilla flavors. Very smooth and drinkable with a long bitter finish. My favorite ’bastard’ brew from stone.

This was a great blended brew that changed dramatically as it warmed up. Complex, clean and potent - thanks for the share guy!
