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.

Phenomenal stuff. Pours a dark copper with a sizable, frothy off-white head. Aroma is absolutely packed full of hops, with notes of pine, mango, guava, and clementine-- gorgeous smell. Flavor is much of the same, with more of the nectar fruit mixing beautifully with evergreen hop and a touch of caramel and toffee malt for balance. Palate is actually quite thin and frighteningly drinkable. Love this stuff.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - NOV 28, 2010
I fully admit that I love the regular Arrogant Bastard Ale, but I rarely order it. It’s always there, sitting on the shelves, in bars, in Vons, even Rite Aid. When I do drink it i’m always a little amazed that I don’t buy it more. Now, in contrast, I rarely ever see double bastard anywhere, even during the short period of time it’s on the shelves. When I do have it, again it’s a treat. I don’t love it, and I actually prefer the traditional version a little more. The marriage of these two beers works well. It’s like a sturdier version of AB, with a small hint of oak. It works, and it’s a pretty solid beer for Stone.

Nikiel (874) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Pours a light mahogany with a fair amount of lasting foam. Tastes light compared to the original or double bastards. A fair amount of hops with some oaky characteristics. Simpler than expected, but still good and brilliant with a green onion cheese.

riversideAK (5574) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Nice hoppy nose, very piney with lots of floral notes, touches of citrus, caramel malt sweetness, light oak and a hint of alcohol. Pours darker amber with a nice lasting off-white oily head. The flavor is strongly hoppy with nice fresh resinous pine bitterness, some light dry oaky notes, caramel malts, but not overly sweet and sugary. Alcohol pokes through, bright hoppy flavors linger, dry and oily. Really enjoyable stuff.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Boy, if DaSilky1 likes this beer than it must be good. Pours murky red/brown with a medium sized, offwhite head that leaves just a little bit of lace. Smells sweet and malty overall with some mellow hop notes toward the finish. Little bit of the oak sweetness as well. Tastes spicy and sweet with some sweet malts and lots of hop spice and a hint of oak sweetness as well. spicy, hop fruitiness dominates. Medium body, ok carbonation. I feel like I wasted my life attempting to read the bottle. blah blah blah

Amber pour. Creamy head. Hoppy, citrus aroma, crackers, stone fruit, golden raisins, booze. Flavor is sweet and malty and nice and hoppy all wrapped up into a fun beer. Very nice.

TroyNYC (31) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Growler DeCeicco’s food market. First I get the huge hoppy noise, but on the second sniff I get the alcohol and a pungent fruit. Really nice. I don’t get a lot of oak, only as a back note and very faint. Very drinkable as most of the stone beers, but it will hit you fast. Nice really dark amber color.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Name rather too cutesy-poo. Draught. Poured woody brown red with medium white head. Aroma: hop and citrus, rather more than their other basters. Full flavour, large bodied, lots of malt, caramel and raisin with a hop edge. Hop finish, but with some alcohol warmth, Sip this.
