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.

One of the better Stone beers I have had in a bit. This is the longest description of a beer I have ever seen. Pours dark copper with an off white head. Citrus hops and caramel malt in the flavor and aroma. Nice bitterness and a little boozy. Pine. Well done.

ContemplateBeer (1540) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Aroma of citrus, pine hops with some fruit sweetness. Appearance is cola like with tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but with a big caramel malt backbone. Palate is creamy and lively. Very good.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Bomber. Pours a reddish copper with a dense (yet small) head and aromas of sweet malt, fruit and tropical fruit malt. I pick up peaches and mangoes heavily on the first sip, blending into a boozy and sharp hops finish. Crisp pine and slightly astringent medicinal flavors in the finish. This is a whoopass Stone (DIPA) Strong Ale. Typical CA stuff, but very good. Sweet, sharp and hoppy.

Nephilium (1356) - Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2010
This starts wit a nice caramel aroma, with a touch of hops, vanilla, and oak. It pours a clear ruby red, with a nice full finger of white head. There’s a big strong hop presence in this beer, with caramel malts balancing it out. There’s just a kiss of oak and vanilla there as well, This is quite drinkable and quite a tasty beer. About the only two things that would make this better would be a lower price point, and year round availability.

obguthr (3833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Draft: Orange peel and rosehip aroma. Ruby red, thin head, good lacing. Very potpourri like and perfumey. Rosehips, oak, and dried leaves. Alcohol is imposing. I’ve never been a huge fan of Arrogant Bastard and this is all that i don’t like about AB, magnified.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2010
22 oz. bottle - Pours a clear mahogany color with a one finger thick light tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Flavor is the same with the addition of a little more citrus flavor and some malt sweetness. Medium to full body. didn’t get much of the Oaked Bastard. To be honest, I was a little disappointed in the beer. Still, a good beer worth buying, at least once.

bretupdegraff (242) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Awesome pour with nice off white head that lasted for a long time. Aroma is almost overpowering but delightful - taste is hoppy, spicy, then boozy but a nice smooth bourbon flavor though. Aftertaste is long lasting and makes me crave more. Wonderful!

fiver29 (1035) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle pours hazy dark amber color with tan head. Aroma is leafy, pine, bitter hops. Medium mouthfeel. Flavors are well balanced. Pine, resinous oil, the middle is leafy, and the finish has a slight touch of alcohol. Its backed up with a strong malt backbone. Very nice brew.

AWISLguy (1290) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bomber from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours a lovely reddish brown with a 1 inch head. Low carbonation. Hello hops! Aroma is all freshly cut grass and sweet fruit. Taste carries the bitterness of the hops, sweetness of the malt and a faint amount of oakiness, all in a medium strength. Great lacing. As it warms a bit more of the oak and the alcohol comes through. A more hoppy Arrogant without the heavy malt sweetness of Double. A terrific brew! I will miss the Stone efforts as they leave WI. Truly we can be WORTHY!

joeneugs (3242) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 3, 2010
On tap. It pours a deep red color with a nice tan head. The aroma is decidedly hop forward with lots of peach, citrus, and a bit of earthiness. The flavor is much maltier with some cherry, plum, lollipop sweetness and more big hop bitterness. Very big and a bit rough on the palate. Some oak flavors come through in the finish.
