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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium to deep amber color, with a smallish and quickly disappearing off-white head. The nose is initially slight, showing a slight tea-like note, a very slight wood note, and some somewhat muddled background character malt notes. As the beer warms, the latter notes sharpen, showing some high crystal/special B raisony notes. The palate is fairly malt-forward, again showing a rather muddy character initially, along with a fairly prevalent alcohol note, and some interesting fruit notes that appear toward the finish. The finish itself leaves a lingering note of alcohol, and the aforesaid tea-like note. Overall, certainly an enjoyable and interesting beer, but questionable as to whether it actually bests any of the original three blended beers in any facet.

smith4498 (3503) - Miami, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Pours medium reddish brown color with tan head. Strong citrus and pine aromas with some caramel. Citrus, pine and caramel flavors with some oak and vanilla. A little boozy. Medium body with average carbonation.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Rather nice nose with lots of citrus and pine, with lots of caramel. The taste is sweet, moderately bitter, lots of citrus, some pine and spruce, lots of caramel, some fruity yeast, and some minerals. Much better than I thought it would be.

Vir4030 (593) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Hoppy caramel aroma from a brown pour with a thin off-white head. Hops aren’t bad, but the caramel / toffee flavor is not good. I just don’t like this kind of beer. Sorry, folks. I’ll keep putting in these really low reviews in order to offset the seemly stout-biased crowd here.

gormanb (173) - Bowling Green, Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2011
aroma- brown sugar, dark fruit, sweet malt, wood, bread. pours dark ruby brown with lingering head. taste is caramel malt, brown sugar, wood, smoke, dry bitter finish, hints of bitter chocolate, spruce. palate is thick, full bodied, and carbonated.

sloth (2788) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Medium sized offwhite head, good retention and sticky lacing. nose is hoppy with pine and juicey citrus, little earthy, malts are a hint sweet, caramelly along with some woody notes. Body is almost full, slick and oily on the palate, nice carbonation, sorta prickly. Big malts and big hops, medium sweet malts balanced (kinda sorta) with a nice hop punch, citrus, pine, earth and then just a hint of wood creepin in. Toasty, caramelly malts lend to a dry finish, nicely bittered, maybe even a bit agressive? Need to do some more. Bomber from statelineliquors.

msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Pour is mahogony brown with a relatively large off white head. Aroma is malty and distinct brown sugar and caramel notes. Taste is very hoppy and bitter, however some of the oak does shine through. Considering the abv it is very light on the tongue, and a relatively easy drinker.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Better than expected. Vibrant amber in color with a thick white head. The dry hopping adds a big hoppy/citrus aroma which leads to flavors of caramel, malts, brown sugar, and oak... all of which are packed together with a big dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Basically this beer kicks ass. Each of the three base beers can be identified, but as a whole, this beer is greater than the sum of its parts. Super smooth with soft carbonation and a medium body. An excellent blend.

stpiker (5) - USA - JAN 5, 2011 does not count
Hops up front big time. Finish is a little sweet. High carbonation. nice beer, but I think I prefer straight A-B.

hayduke (4629) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 4, 2011
This poured a rich ruby color with a very robust light tan head and very heavy lacing rings making a very attractive pour. The nose is of pine and citrus hops. Solid body and bit of an alcoholic, almost raw mouthfeel. The flavor is complex with lots of caramel malts set off by a pine and citrus. The finish is long, dry, and bitter. While an interesting idea I found the beer a little harsh overall with the alcohol just a little too present. Despite that is still overall pretty good, and as mentioned a very handsome pour.
