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.

Pours a sultry, satanic red with a fair khaki cap that settles slowly to a ring and leaves some nice clumpy doily lace. Nose involves some dank, nasty west coast style hopping above a rich caramel and toffee malt base, almost some red fleshy fruit notes, some toasted malt, some red velvet cake. Pretty sweet but considerably bitter. Bigger bodied, thick, oily, rich, silky, finishing on the dry side with a nice lingering piney hop bitterness. Definitely makes sense. Cool brew.

Beerenberger (1519) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and hnts of pine escape a clear mahogny hued pour wih a lasting velvety pillow of ivory foam and much lacing. On first approac, a light malt sweetness dominates the palate only to give way to a refreshing (not over the top) hop bitterness. The flavors are much like the nose. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, another good and well balanced IPA from Stone.

CpyNPrnT (403) - Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Aroma of pine, taste is piney, dry, oaky, alcohol, some malt at the back, more alcohol. This is one of the best looking beers I have every tasted. It is a combination of the two other bastards.

Barreras (1032) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Stone Lucky Bastard pours a ruby amber color with a rich malt aroma. Taste is boldly bitter with a huge malt nose that lingers throughout the beer. The taste of an Imperial beer comes thru leaving a malt film on the tongue. A beer not for the weary, the 8.5% IS EVIDENT.

John25 (641) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 Bottle. Dark copper and ruby. Spiced candied fruit and oak aroma. The taste adds more spice, dark earthy hops, and a strong malt presence. Heavy rich body with a long bitter finish. Overall, a pretty complex blend that highlights all the individual details of the bastard series. Good stuff, but the originals are better.

Burnt sugar, sweet grainy bready, floral/nectar, orange marmalade, light vanilla, caramel, flashes of bitterness.

coachd (130) - Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Smells like a perfect balance of hops, oak and malt sweetness. The hops are pine scented like you would find in most Lagunitas beers. Pours a magnificent reddish brown color with a white head of clingy foam that lingers for a long time. I can taste the hops and oak, but not much else. Definitely tastes like a beer from the Bastard series. Could use a more prominent malt bill to balance it out more. Hot alcohol burn in the aftertaste that feels like more than its 8.5% ABV. I was expecting a big beer, and this one delivers everywhere except for its palate, which I found to be a little watery. Tastes more like an IPA than an American Strong Ale. Pretty good, but not a 99, and shouldn’t be in the top 25 of all American Strong Ales.

roxtersoxter (338) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours caramel amber with small tan head out of bottle. Aroma of malt, caramel, and oaky hoppiness. Flavor of sweetness and malt. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (756) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 1, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Deep caramel brown color. Rocky beige head. Fruity toasted malt aroma. First sip is fruity, hoppy goodness. Brown sugar, toasted nuts, resin and pine hops, brown butter, oak and cardamom. This is good, really good.

hman43 (384) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Unlike several other American Strong Ales, this one has a very fruity aroma. It pours a cloudy brown with some lacing present. There is a strong tinge of alcohol with the other flavors. There is a complex combination of malts as well.
